Another fantastic work by Aaron Dembski-Bowden, this re-release is fantastically timed with the new GW release of ninth edition models. Dembski-Bowden’s skill of presenting two stories intertwined allows the reader to see the events that shaped Ragnar into his current form, while brining the reader into his current situation. A great read, it is one that I’ll definitely push on any Space Wolf friends.
One of the best Blackhammer novel I've read, mostly due to the main character!! I would recommend it for the fan and new comer of the franchise.
I requested this book from NetGalley based solely on the fact that Aaron Dembski-Bowden was the author. I’m not disappointed with the writing or the story in general, but these Space Marine Legends books all appear to be quite short by Black Library standards, and that was my biggest problem with the book - I can’t help but feel that given another hundred pages, this could have been a much better story. Still, it’s a good standalone that’s definitely worth a read for 40k fans in general and Space Wolf fans in particular.
A really interesting novella covering one of my first favourite characters in the WH40k setting - I believe the model representing the character was released shortly after I started reading White Dwarf (many moons ago), so it was nice to read this novella. A good complement to William King's series that established the character's backstory. Well-written (as is to be expected from Dembski-Bowden), well-paced, and interesting throughout. Definitely recommended to fans of the character and setting.
