The Devine Adoratrice is a short story published in the Horus Heresy Series. The Devine Adoratrice was originally published in the limited-edition anthology novel The Imperial Truth. It was later republished as an ebook just before the release of Vengeful Spirit, acting as a prequel. It is now also included in the War Without End anthology novel.
Decades before Horus' civil war sunders the Imperium, Raeven Devine, ruler-in-waiting of the world of Molech, prepares for his Ritual of Becoming, the rite that will elevate him to the rank of Knight and bond him with the mighty war machine that will be his steed for years to come. But traitors within the Sacristans have other ideas and a shocking act of betrayal sets the stage for one of the bloodiest battles of the Horus Heresy.
