There are reports of an uprising on the planet of Solo-Baston. Indigenous forces are rebelling against Imperial rule, led by the mysterious 'Dos Pares'. Amidst the conflict, the 31st Riverine Imperial Guard are dispatched to seek and destroy a vital piece of weaponry, but find themselves beset on all sides by hostile forces. And what they originally thought was simple tribal warfare soon reveals a much more sinister activity. Henry Zou's latest novel serves as a prequel to Emperor's Mercy and delivers non-stop action and mystery in the grim world of Warhammer 40,000.
Henry Zou lives in Sydney, Australia. He first started writing on long and lonely military exercises with the Army. These scribbled notes and drawings, tucked into the underside of his helmet became the basis for his stories. Of these nonsensical musings, the first piece to become published appeared in the Planetkill anthology. When Henry is not working or studying, he devotes all his time to submission wrestling and listening to Baltic gypsy rock.
