Continuing my longstanding obsession with the Adepta Sororitas – the Sisters of Battle – my latest short story for the Black Library explores an order of the Emperor’s faithful who speak softly but carry a big chainsaw...
Lost on a feral world, a nameless Sister Repentia has miraculously survived the suicide mission that claimed her fellow penitents. Through faith and ferocity, she has recovered a powerful relic that could turn the tide in a failing campaign against the Ruinous Powers. But when her rescue ship crash lands, she and a handful of Battle Sisters must protect the relic from a ravening pack of Khornate butchers who seek the artefact for themselves. As the hunters close in on the ragged company, the Repentia must choose between protecting her newfound squadmates and honouring her own death wish
“I shall know victory only ever as defeat,
Until the blessed Throne restores my name,
Be it upon my living flesh or be it upon my ashes.”
From 'The Repentia’s Lament'
“Relentless, gruelling, fast-paced and action-packed – cuts to the heart of what makes the Sororitas such engaging characters.”
