A nightmarish Warhammer Horror novel set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
Morgravia Sanctus is being hunted. She doesn’t know by whom or why, only that her life is in danger. She goes into hiding in the low-hive of Blackgeist, in the hope of losing her pursuers and piecing together the fragments of her broken memory. Something happened to her, a profound trauma that left behind the ‘red dreams’ and a physical agony that can strike at any moment. She searches for someone called the ‘Broker’, a trafficker in memories and psychic mind manipulation, but before she can make contact catastrophe befalls the city. A plague sweeps the districts, turning its citizens into blood hungry monsters. Order collapses, death and slaughter are rampant. Caught up in the carnage, Morgravia must flee again. As the ravening spreads, and more and more succumb, is there any hope of ever stopping this contagion?
