Supreme Grand Master Azrael of the Dark Angels is forced into an uneasy alliance with the eldar to keep his Chapter's secret past safely buried.

A legend among Space Marines, he has fought for centuries and ever at the forefront of battle. Now, with the enigmatically alien eldar as his uneasy and unlikely allies, he must tread the fine line once more between the pursuit of victory, and keeping the Chapter's past safely buried...
