“A Great War is coming, and it will engulf the Imperium of Man. The Space Marines of the Alpha Legion, the last and most secretive of all the Legiones Astartes brotherhoods, arrive on a heathen world to support the Imperial Army in a pacification campaign against strange and uncanny forces. But what drives the Alpha Legion? Can they be trusted, and what side will they choose when the Great War begins? Loyalties are put to the test, and the cunning schemes of an alien intelligence revealed.”

My Horus Heresy reads are paired with Wordaholic Anonymous, and when their review for Legion is posted, I shall link it here.

    Interesting book- always found the Alpha legion an oddity in 40k terms… they almost seem too ‘sensible’ in a 20th century tactical/ tacticool way… dunno might be me.

    I thought that the Alpha Legion are generally there to be the opposite of the Dark Angels, both chapters have their secrets and work in mysterious ways.
    And both of them have the ‘Who are they really working for?’ question hanging over them.

    That makes sense- it’s an interesting theory. Either way I’ll pick up Legion I think.
