Into Exile is the fifty-first short story published in the Hours Heresy Series that was not originally part of a main release anthology. Into Exile was first published as part of the Black Library's 2016 Advent Calendar, on day number three.


When the traitorous allies of Warmaster Horus and Kelbor-Hal seized Mars, they sent elite hunters to apprehend key targets and ensure that any loyal resistance would fail. One such target was the legendary technoarchaeologist Arkhan Land, the discoverer of many lost treasures and curiosities from mankind's Golden Age -- and the Imperial Fists cannot allow such a valuable mind to fall into the hands of the enemy. Does Land have good reason to fear his apparent saviours?
