EXPLAIN YOURSELF AT ONCE.
Hi, peeps and creeps. My name's Aaron Dembski-Bowden, which you may have already worked out through your own powerful detective skills. This is a website about my work: each sentence lovingly harvested from my skull by editors and harnessed by publishers for purposes that I'm assured are in no way nefarious.
I'm reliably informed some people like to buy these words. If you're one of those people, please know that I love you. Good news! You've arrived at a nexus to buy even more of those words. If you're not one of those people, I regret to inform you that this is very much the wrong place to be.
Perhaps you're lost. That's okay. It happens.
OKAY, NOW EXPLAIN ALL THIS BLOOD.
I'm not on trial, here.
SPEAR OF THE EMPEROR
Available in JUNE 2019.
Cover: Marc Lee.
"Endlessly thought-provoking, sometimes (enjoyably) challenging, and deeply satisfying, and suggests that this is going to be a hugely influential series that does for the ‘new’ 40k lore much the same as what the Black Legion series does for classic 40k lore."
"A contender for Aaron's very best work, and therefore a contender for the very best Black Library work. There's so much to like here - the subtle and gradually unfolding plot, the excellent character- and world-building work, the rich, yet suitably restrained, writing style."
BOOK I OF THE EMPEROR'S SPEARS TRILOGY
The scattered worlds of the Elara's Veil nebula were once protected by the oath of unity sworn by three mighty Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes. The Star Scorpions were undone by flaws in their genetic coding. The Celestial Lions were ravaged by the Inquisition for sins they did not commit.
Now, after hundreds of years, only the Emperor's Spears still keep their vigil. They are barbarian watchmen against the Outer Dark; bloodied but unbroken in their long duty.
Amadeus Kaias Incarius, a brother of the Mentor Legion, is commanded to cross the Great Rift and assess the Spears' war-readiness, only to be drawn into the chaotic plight of a depleted crusade on the Imperium's benighted frontier. The decisions he makes, far from the God-Emperor's light, will decide the fate of the war-torn Chapter.
