Euphrati Overall I really enjoyed the novella.

However there was one minor, passing detail that rubbed my fur the wrong way that I ended up chalking up to a slight shift in cannon from the 40k wolves physiology to the 30k wolves that are still evolving in the HH novels.

Lord of Ruin This for me was probably the best Horus heresy novella BL have published, I mean Serpent beneath was really great! but Chris managed to really capture Russ well showing him in such a different light.

Also seeing the space wolves take such a kicking was refreshing to see and I'm a huge Vlka Fenryka fan!

The identity of the infiltrator, I honestly did not see that coming!

Yeah, I actually read that whole story and then completely forgot about it. :-\

Iron Circle To play the devil's advocate, why are we assuming that Russ's plan involves a pitched battle with SoH. It could be something akin to a commando raid to assassinate a particular target, it could be done right. But then SW aren't exactly the legion for this sort of job, its more in RG territory but they are in worse state than SW, so.

Anyway it could turn out to be good although I don't have much hope.

This just gets better.. Is there some serious reason to write total garbage like that. Primarchs master strategists my ass. Ive played serious wargames 30 years and even i can think better than them. Sadly some authors dont seem very strategic on their writing.

NiceGuyEddy It's good. Disappointed that it wasn't longer though. Paying alot for a throwaway short story is one thing but it's very disheartening to pay a lot of money for 120 pages that could/should/would have been a full length novel.
