Curse of the Wulfen

The novel
The Space Wolves' greatest secret is revealed! The mysterious 13th Company emerge from the warp, and the future of the Chapter is imperilled. Can the sons of Fenris survive the revelation of the Wulfen?
READ IT BECAUSE
This is the biggest, most galaxy-changing event the Warhammer 40,000 universe has seen for years. The truth about the Wulfen is out, and things for the Space Wolves will never be the same again. Will they be hunted as heretics or hailed as heroes? You're gonna have to read it to find out, and the twists and turns will leave you truly gobsmacked.

eBook:€13.49

THE STORY
The Wulfen of the 13th Company have not been seen since the days Leman Russ sailed the Sea of Stars at the head of his Legion. Now, amid daemon incursions of alarming size, they return to the Space Wolves to fight by their side. As Logan Grimnar’s Great Companies scour the stars to rally their returning ancestors, ever more battle-brothers begin to fall prey to mysterious changes. Is the Wulfen’s reappearance really a blessing of Russ, or will the dark omens that plague Harald Deathwolf spell doom for the warriors of Fenris?



Now this looks extremely promising and seriously plot progressing!


Edit: Buyer beware, this seems to be about 150 pages. WTF?

It sounds very interest in story wise, but no paperback version? Are you kidding me? Now that's called a surprise. Well, my Chinese New Year is ruined!:angry::ireful2:

Going by the logo on the top right it's probably the first in a series about the warzone Fenris campaign. Get ready for more like this.
Sanctus Reach got a collection, as I said it would. Cryptus Shieldworlds will get one. And this will too. It would be nice if it weren't the Wolves again, but at least this looks seriously plot progressing.

Besides, novellas and LEs seems to be the current business model at BL.
A depressing statement. Even more so for being true.

I know. But why?
Because the Inquisition and the GK genocided a Space Marine Chapter that could immolate themselves with psychic fire and not burn, because they were mutants. And they had no particular amniosity with the Flame Falcons.

Now with that knowledge ask yourself, what the hell will they do to a Chapter that they both hate and apparantly has the potential in their gene-seed for a mutation like the Wulfen... there's only one correct answer.

Personally I have a theory on how this adventure will end. (Spoiler tags in case I am right, long odds but crazier stuff has happened.)

This is an area that the fluff bugs me. After ten thousand years of fighting on countless worlds, so many of these "game changing" secrets would be impossible to keep. No one has seen a Blood Angel give in to the red thirst? Even their name is a bad cover. No one has ever asked why traitor marines wearing DA power armor is attacking them? I think the GK fluff even says that they exterminate anyone that learns demons are real. That's just not believable.

In order;

The Blood Angels are careful to make sure that the Death Company either die fighting, or are given a quick end when they do give into the Thirst. Usually they keep the DC pretty far away from other Imperial forces as well.

The Fallen wear black armour, the Dark Angels wear dark green. Very few people in the Imperium would actually know that the DA used to wear black instead. Plus the Fallen don't, normally, operate as warbands, they tend to be singular agents that cause chaos wherever they go. And the Dark Angels are not at all squeamish about dealing with witnesses.

The Grey Knights mind wipe those who learn of Daemons, the process usually kills them though. But they can't do that everywhere, they can only try to erase knowledge of them where they can. But the Daemonic incursions across the galaxy are too numerous for the GK to respond to all of them, so knowledge of them inevitably does spread.

DC have Black Rage, but all Blood Angels have the red thirst. All of them occasionally get overwhelmed by the desire to drink their enemies' blood.

Spoilers, please.
Well I've read it. On the whole, unimpressed, though the end, and by the end I mean literally the last page, is generally the only thing of note.

Here's a break down anyway for anyone who isn't going to read it.



Wrote all that pretty quickly but yeah, it works.

Interesting. Sounds like bolter/wolf porn, but the ending is definitely a game-changer. This new story has my attention, let us see if it can improve on novel quality.

That occurs in the epilogue? Please let Wright take it from there
