Publisher's Summary

Many are the sagas of Leman Russ, Lord of Winter and War, most fearsome of the Emperor's primarch sons. At the height of the Great Crusade, his Space Wolves fight to bring the rebel world of Dulan to compliance.

Enraged by the defiance of the tyrant Durath, Russ has pledged to strike him down personally - but his brother Lion El'Jonson of the Dark Angels advises more caution. With the might of two Legions arrayed against Durath, tensions nevertheless run high, and the rivalry between the Wolf and the Lion threatens to engulf them all.

More!

I love reading about the Wolf King. He's a kindred spirit. I would've never guessed that he mourned for the Lion. I love the Space Wolves because we are wild spirits tempered by time!

Another grand piece of work from both Wraight and Keeble. An especially insightful and enjoyable look into the relationship between the Wolf and the Lion.

A lead up to greatness.

The book is a great depiction of the wolf lord and the fighter he is.

Not really a Primarch story.

Overall this is a great listen/read, well voiced and acted and very atmospheric. I was hoping it would be more about Leman himself as the story of the great wolf king. not a lore story which every 40k fan knows. very enjoyable but not what I was expecting.

Hard to pay attention to

Through no fault of the narrator, I found this book hard to get into, I imagine it is simply the case of a good book that did not translate to audio platform very well, however, it is still a great title and had very entertaining moments, aided by the drama the narrator skillfully added.

One of the best!

Great story keeping your interest all the way delving into all of the mysterious parts of the wolves history that keep being hinted at or referenced in other books, while dropping its own hints for future story arcs. Leaves you smiling at the end, listen to it :) Fenrys Hjolda!

Great book, but be caoutious!

Beware, there are SPOILERS for The Horus Heresy! As it is usual with the Warhammer books, this was is superb, in terms of writing and narration. Jonathan Keeble is on of th best. But, if you are like myself somewhere in the middle of The Horus Heresy sequel, be wary of the last chapter. There are some SPOILERS! at the end, and I found myself regretting going through it and depriving myself of some unexpected eventualities in it. So, I hope my experience will prevent his happening to someone else.
