Cover Description

The Lone Wolf Kvara heads out onto the storm-tossed oceans in search of a monstrous creature – and a mighty end. And that might come even quicker than he thought as the alien tyranids attack.[1]


On the Ocean World Lyses, something is destroying the massive algae processing platforms that harvest food for the Imperium. Their distress call is answered by a single Space Wolf, a grizzled warrior named Aj Kvara. As he persues the monster, he recalls a scene from a previous life, when he hunted the mighty Kraken in the seas of Fenris. He follows the creature's trail to another platform, which turns out to be infested with hormagaunts — and lurking nearby, something much worse.
