Summary

The time has come for Leman Russ, primarch of the Space Wolves, to fulfil his vow and attempt to stop Warmaster Horus before he breaks through to the Segmentum Solar. 

In the face of opposition from three of his brother primarchs, Russ withdraws the Space Wolves legion from Terra and makes all haste for Horus’ position. Reports from Malcador the Sigillite’s agents suggest that Horus is utterly changed and infused with a diabolical power so great that no man can stand against him. A warrior of Fenris would never willingly abandon his oaths, but with Horus beyond the touch of mortal blades, the Lord of Winter and War may have doomed himself for the sake of honour....

Fantastic installment

Another excellent addition as the series heads towards the siege of Terra as always the narrator gives an extra edge to the story.

Brilliant book.

No problems at all with this one! Beautifully constructed story, and a real insight into the core of WH40k.

Jonathan Keeble obviously enjoyed this one too and conveyed the story in a fantastic delivery.

Excellent explanation of Fenrisian Philosophy

The story works well to explain the Fenrisian philosophy with regards to myths, magic, and the warp. It is also well acted, including the many accents used, which are not easy for one person alone.

Russ is a lovable idiot.

i liked it but the main flaw was that it sought to explain the rational of a stupid decision...

WARHAMMER

Warhammer Demigids fight for the fate of the universe. Need I say more?! also this was almost an audio drama with the different voices and inflections. it was not a robot but a flesh and blood reader that seemed devoted to the characters as much as you or I.

Fenris Hjolda!!!

The story is great. Russ is an amazing character and this book gives a deeper look into Russ, Horus and their relationship with the Emperor. I really enjoyed it and would suggest it for any Space Wolf fan.

Badass for Space Wolves fans

The emperors executioners and their loyalty is displayed in Guy Haley’s Wolfsbane, it weaves together previous works written on the Horus Heresy and keeps tied beautifully together.
Bottom line I highly recommend it and loved listening to it

I loved it, great read!

The story is great! I enjoyed almost every minute of it. Especially the Belisarius Cawl parts. For some reason I really enjoyed his parts of the story. Don't get me wrong though, the whole book is great. They did good with Leman Russ's story as well.
