The Warhammer universe is a vast world created by dozens of authors from around the world. This cycle includes hundreds of literary works. The plot of the saga is the story of human space exploration, which has been going on for 40,000 years.
A parallel space was discovered, which was called the Warp. It became possible to move in space at superluminal speed. People inhabited hundreds of worlds, entire galaxies were in their power, the hostile alien races they met were defeated. But the danger came from where no one expected it - from the Warp. Demons of Chaos penetrated into our world from it, devastated hundreds of planets and disrupted communications between human colonies. It seemed that the fate of mankind was predetermined, but the one who became the savior of the empire of people, the Emperor, appeared. He genetically created 12 immortal superhumans - the Primarchs. And the best of them was Horus - the beloved son of the Emperor. The Horus Heresy cycle tells about the greatness and fall of the best warrior of the Empire.

The best of them, Horus (Lupercal), is a role model for all the warriors of the Empire. But even the great warrior could not resist the temptations of Chaos and fell victim to his own vanity. Lupercal betrayed his father and with him all of humanity. Thus began the Civil War, in the crucible of which hundreds of planets burned down.
