Summary

Reborn in body and spirit beneath Mount Deathfire, the primarch Vulkan gathers his most trusted sons and prepares for the final part of his journey. 

The Legions shattered at Isstvan V have stalled the Warmaster’s advance across the galaxy, but fresh cracks are spreading through the alliance between the Iron Hands, Salamanders and Raven Guard, along with mysterious rumours of the return of Ferrus Manus. Haunted by a sense of destiny unfulfilled, Vulkan must choose between joining their war of vengeance against the traitors and following his own barely understood path all the way to the Throneworld itself.

Easily one of the more entertaining 40k books.

I listened to this audiobook in hopes of learning more about Salamanders and Vulkan, particularly after the events at Istvaan. You do learn some about them but not much. The story itself is quite good though and I especially enjoyed the Iron Hands arc and all its zaniness. The narrator does an absolutely fantastic job and I'll gladly listen to any other audiobooks read by him. He goes to great lengths to do voices, proper voice acting and is an overall joy, barring a few select characters that seem almost forced (particularly Aug and the Great Unclean One near the end of the book).

This story managed to hold my attention entirely and I almost finished it in 2 days while working. Great read. Highly recommended.

Not bad at all...finalizes several story lines.

As Kyme's stories go this one is not half bad it definitely helps if your read or listened ro his other Vulkan books in the Heresy series (even if most are rather sub par)
