There Is Only War
Wolves of Fenris
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.
