A Sabbat Crusade novella

Adept Tey seeks something monstrous on the world of Ashek II – one of Heritor Asphodel's Woe Machines, among the greatest horrors of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade.

Matthew Farrer brings his thoughtful style to the Adeptus Mechanicus, and explores the impact of Chaos-corrupted technology and daemon engines on tech-priests.THE STORY
Of all the forces of Chaos unleashed on the Sabbat Worlds in the war between the Imperium and the Archenemy, perhaps the most feared are the dread Woe Machines. Created by the warlord and heretek Heritor Asphodel, these fusions of the mechanical and the daemonic bring death and devastation wherever they walk. And even after Asphodel's death, they remain a threat… On the world of Ashek II, Adeptus Mechanicus Adept Tey is on a most dangerous mission – to retrieve one of these horrific devices, at any cost.
