Just to let you know, the final story in the Tome of Fire Trilogy is called Nocturne and is released sometime towards the end of this year and the beginning of the next (can't recall the exact details, head over to black library's website if you want to find out for yourself.

Also, if you're a fan of the Horus Heresy, Nick Kyme has a novella called Promethean Sun planned, which focuses on well, the Salamanders during the Horus Heresy. It also, according to his blog, includes lots of Vulkan.

Finally, a new trilogy for the Salamanders is being planned after The Tome of Fire is completed, called Circle of Fire which should be intresting .

Also, just as a heads up, any questions related to the books themselves should be posted in this forum.

And finally, you spelt Salamanders wrong in the title .

Hope I helped.

There is also Fires of War in the Heroes of the Space Marine book, which, if read, ought to be read before Salamander.

And for completeness, there is a story in 'Fear the Alien', but not sure where that fits as i've only read Fires of War and Salamander.

Sorry to bump, but was looking to see how all these fit together. So far I have:

Fires of War (HoSM) > Salamander > Fireborn (Audio) > Firedrake > Nocturne

Where does Prometheus Requiem (FtA) fit in?
