Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Ascension is a novel written by Cassern S. Goto and published by Black Library in 2005.


Following the catastrophic losses during the Tartarus campaign, Captain Gabriel Angelos journeys to the planet of Rahe's Paradise in a desperate attempt to recruit new warriors into the Blood Ravens Space Marines. However, once there, he discovers an archaeological dig that could challenge all he thought he knew about the origins of the Blood Ravens. Under scrutiny from the Adepta Sororitas and under attack from his old nemesis, the Eldar Farseer Macha, Gabriel is unwittingly threatening the resurrection of something ancient and terrible from both his and the Eldar's past!

As the fleets clash above the planet's surface and all-out war is unleashed around them, Angelos and his allies must discover the secrets of the past, and it is a revelation that could destroy them all.
