Rebellious young Space Wolf Lukas the Trickster finds himself facing a foe who might rival even his legendary cunning - the dark eldar corsair, Duke Sliscus.
Among the Space Wolves there are as many sagas as there are warriors, but there are none quite like that of Lukas the Trickster. Vainglorious, boastful and irreverent, the Jackal Wolf has ever stood apart from his battle-brothers, passed from pack to pack by embittered Wolf Lords, renowned and reviled in equal measure. But as a new enemy invades the icy reaches of Fenris at the height of the Helwinter, Lukas finds himself facing a foe who might rival even his legendary cunning - the dark eldar corsair, Duke Sliscus. In the battle between wolf and serpent, who will emerge triumphant, and who will stain the snow red?
