Among the Space Wolves there are as many sagas as there are warriors. Though none quite like that of Lukas the Trickster. Renowned and reviled in equal measure, the Jackalwolf has ever stood apart from his brothers, passed from pack to pack by embittered Wolf Lords. But as a new enemy invades the icy reaches of Fenris at the height of the Helwinter, Lukas finds himself facing a foe who may rival even his legendary cunning - the drukhari corsair, Duke Sliscus.

Really blitzed this one. A cracking story, brilliantly told / performed! Adds a subtle new dimension to the sagas of the Space Wolves!

If I was inclined to start a band, that's what I'd call it!

It's a good story, but does require some perseverance. It's a great counterview to 'A Thousand Sons', which is a bit more accessible.

There are some neat story telling pivots that i particularly enjoyed! If you're fond of the sixth legion, then it's definitely worth a listen.
