The most interesting thing about this book for me is that it backs up the reference to traitor Space Wolves in the Chaos codex. The subject of traitor Space Wolves and whether or not they could turn has been the subject of many debates on various forums. In The Gildar Rift, Huron has captured the Wolf of Fenris and some of the Space Wolves aboard do indeed become Red Corsairs. So, that settles that debate. Sorry, Space Wolf fans. As a long time Space Wolf player, I have to say this disappointed me.
I have to say The Gildar Rift is a notch above average. I will definitely read future offerings by Sarah Cawkwell. Although, the subplots and the story segments featuring the Red Corsairs were by far the better parts of the book. Overall the book was an enjoyable read and was fun…..and isn’t that what this hobby of ours is all about? Give this book a read and let me know what you think!
