Summary

As the Emperor marshals his armies to reclaim the galaxy for the glory of mankind, one by one his Space Marine Legions are reunited with their missing primarchs. The XVIII Legion are still waiting to find their true identity, unaware their own lord has been found. In the Taras Division, legionaries face annihilation as they take a last, desperate stand against a monstrous ork invasion. 

Meanwhile, on Nocturne, Vulkan has raised and trained a new force of warriors. Now it is the time for him to lead his sons into battle. Now it is the time for him to truly don the mantle of primarch, not only to save one half of his Legion but to forge a new, indivisible whole.

More an SM Battles novel than a Primarch novel

Very little to do with Vulkan other than the fact that he is present during these events.

More like an SM Battles novel (and an extremely mediocre one at that).

GW really need to decide what they want from the Primarchs novels as they are horribly inconsistent. Some give a great insight in to backgrounds and others like this one, merely feature a Primarch and no more.

Very disappointing.

Lacklustre battles set before the HH

I couldn’t wait to read this story about Vulkan. A chance to delve into one of the most noble primarches of the hours Hersey.

The primarch series has so far been a mixed bag of insight into the origins of these heroes of the imperium. And a number of stories that have been nothing more than bolter and battles.

This story was the latter. A disappointing listen that lacked any further insight Into the 18th chapter or into its leader.

Although narrated well, for those of you looking for a more in-depth story. I would advise to look elsewhere.

Primarchs?

Well aside from lorgar or perturabo the primarchs series doesnt really contain much on primarchs. A good story expertly read though

Great, but overly direct.

I loved the book as I love Vulkan and the 18th, it just reiterates the same points a lot.
