It is M32, a thousand years after the Horus Heresy. The Scouring is over and the Imperium at the height of its post-Crusade power. When Magnus the Red is tracked down to Gangava Prime, the Space Wolves hasten to engage the daemon primarch. Even as Great Wolf Harek Ironhelm closes on his ancient enemy, the Fang on the Space Wolves home world is besieged by a massive force of Thousand Sons. A desperate battle ensues as the skeleton forces of Wolf Lord Vaer Greylock attempt to hold back the attacking hosts before the last of his meagre defences gives in. Though a single Scout ship survives to summon Great Wolf Harek Ironhelm back to Fenris, none of the defenders truly realise the full scale the horror that awaits them, nor what the Battle for the Fang will cost them all.

Together for the first time in hardback and eBook! A thousand years after the Heresy, the Space Wolves find themselves outgunned as the Thousand Sons invade Fenris. The Battle of the Fang features the clash of the 32nd Millennium - Bjorn the Fell-Handed versus Magnus the Red. See how it all started in the accompanying prequel novella, The Hunt for Magnus.
It is the end of the thirty-second millennium. For two thousand years, since the fall of Prospero, the Space Wolves have hunted their greatest foe, the quarry who escaped them on that benighted world: Magnus the Red, sorcerer-primarch of the Thousand Sons. Now, Great Wolf Harek Ironhelm has the traitor primarch’s scent... Determined to finish what Leman Russ began, Ironhelm sets out to capture and kill his prey, and the Hunt for Magnus begins.

Chris Wraight's brand new eBook novella tells of the events directly before the battle for the Fang. The Thousand Sons were supposedly vanquished during the Heresy, but when one of the Space Wolves' ancient enemies is encountered on Arvion, Great Wolf Harek Ironhelm will stop at nothing to hunt them down.
Me personally loved Battle for the Fang, and has wanted to see more on Chris tackling not on the Wolves but the Thousand Sons as well. This novella might be interesting but as it's a prequel I'm not sure how much it might add. Perhaps I would have wanted a sequel or just the Thousand Sons. But it still might great. The front cover for War of the Fang is amazing and this is the first time we see Magnus in his Daemon-Primarch-form. The novellas frontcover not that interesting though.
