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.

Great book

After having listened to so many in the series, wolfsbane was like a B12 shot of badass much needed. An engaging book from the get go, shedding some interesting light on an interesting primarch. The fatalism of what Russ wants to do is prevalent throughout as it leads up to the final conflict. If you’re a Space Wolf fan you’ll love it but this one is in the top ten for the series and worth a read even if you’re not a fan of the space Vikings.

Prospero Burns, Burns

Disappointing after Dan Abnett and Chris Wraight set the wolves up really well. Feels the dimension they give was undone. Too much of another 40k character in there.

The third act is ok, but the major issue I had was the motives behind it.

A certain arrival in the first act and meeting was my favourite part of the book.

Awesome!

Seeing Russ back in action again always makes for a great story, showing Cawl's origins was also a nice surprise. Jonathan Keeble's narration brings these books to life, especially liked Freendish(?sp)!

Thought I'd never like the wolves of Russ again

Don't even care about prospero anymore. Amazing book! I never thought I'd get over what happened to magnus but this book just adds real character to Russ and his legion. Dare I say best book so far?

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.

Russ is a lovable idiot.

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

By Far The Best

By far the best best HH novel I’ve heard! Keeble really brings these characters life plus this story made sense of a lot of questions I had. Thank you.

Must read for fans of the Rout

Space Wolves fans will really get a kick out of this one. Guy Haley ties together some of the oldest Black Library novels with the Horus heresy here. Big fan of his work and hoping to see more from him!

A lot of fun

This is a lot of fun from start to finish. It is a good mix of tech battle with religious intrigue and there is a lot of testosterone fueled conflict in both arenas. Don't read this book if you are really into female characters. Do read this book if a story about super people in super armor fighting a super spirit on behalf of a super machine strikes your fancy.

Horus v Russ

Brings clarity to the Horus and Russ story. Explores their early history together and Russ's use of the warp for his own ends

Like a perfect drinking horn of mjod.

Guy Haley does great justice to the Space Wolves and Leman Russ. the Side Story about belisarius is equally compelling and I never minded being separated from one story to the other because both were so fascinating.

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.

Great insight into the primarchs wars

A greater look into Horus, Russ and Bjorn and how minor events came the shape the greater ones in the Horus Heresy.
