Shattered Legions is the forty-third volume in the The Horus Heresy series of novels and is an anthology. Shattered Legions was released in April 2017 as a collector's edition hardback which includes a full-art hardcover, a glossy dust jacket in The Horus Heresy series style, internal illustrations and an exclusive author afterword. Shattered Legions is a non-exclusive re-release of the exclusive novella anthology Meduson (Ultimate Edition), with the once exclusive novella The Seventh Serpent by Graham McNiell added to make it novel length.

Gathering survivors from the Raven Guard and the Salamanders aboard any vessels capable of Warp travel, these Shattered Legions wage a new campaign of annihilation against the traitor forces across the galaxy -- a campaign masterminded by legendary warleader Shadrak Meduson.
