Space Marine Battles: Legion of the Damned

Lord of Shadows
True Blood
Sep 29, 2013
Fresh from being rescued from a mental plague known as the Darkness, a shadow of Rogal Dorn's despair when he saw the Emperor broken, Zachariah Kersh, Scourge (Chapter Master's personal bodyguard, beyond regular Honour Guard, and Chapter Standard bearer) of the Excoriators Chapter, is haunted by a spectral, black-clad Adeptus Astartes with a glowing eye. He is rescued from the Darkness, despite the dishonour of having lost the Chapter Standard, because he is the only Excoriator who can win the Feast of Blades, where he is assisted by the ghost Astartes. Whilst dealing with being appointed to captainship of the 5th Company, Kersh is about to face his greatest challenge on an Imperial cemetary world.

On the whole I liked this, particularly when the Legion turned up, but I disagreed with the prologue making the main events a foregone conclusion.
