Vulcan Lives! 6/10.

There's only a few other books in the series I'd rate less, namely BftA and the DA books. It just didn't seem to flow very well, and I didn't like the first person angle for Vulcan. Grammaticus seemed to have been watered down considerably from Legion as well.

Scorched Earth got a 1/10 from me. Here's why.

The Emperor upholds a teleological scheme for the future of man, unifying and perfecting humanity through the intense application of martial violence, and I will endeavour to uphold it.

Thanks for the review. Seems I made correct decision when I skipped that one.

Nail on the head. Getting sick of people looking down on others because they liked something they did not.

Everyone is different, if everyone was Alan Shearer then the world would be a boring place.

Flesh of Cretacia, 7/10.

Not too bad. Nice to see the Flesh Tearer again. He still has the smell of wolf blood in his nose. The book covers how they came to find their new home world.

Flesh of Cretacia, 2/10.
Book about nothing, written for sleepwalkers. They found a planet - hurray.

Scorched Earth, 1/10
Exactly for the same reasons Nineswords has told you

Vulcan Lives! 5/10
Meh! Hello Heracles

Priests of Mars - Lord of Mars - 9/10 - 8/10
Awesome novels, and very unwarhammeristic in it. Joy to read - feelings like, when you first time read Eisenhorn trilogy =) So, strangely Graham McNeil could write superb stuff if he wants it. And i began to worry after Angel Exterminatus.

City of the Damned - 7/10
Delightful story, with great timespan stuff, some superb characters, and some not so well written. But the main problem of this novel - if you compare it to Road of Skulls or Zombieslayer, you will understand - that David Guymer writing style is very hard to cope with.

Scars: - 9/10
7 episodes into it - and yes - one of the best HH to date. Last episode flashback about the meeting with Morti, that's was amazing And yes - Russ is a pussy

Yes, I was clearly looking down on him. You go, you paragon of the people!

I agree with a lot of the points you make in your review. I do think it’s slightly harsh though. I did think it was better that Promethean Sun and Feat of Iron (I hated both). I’d give Scorched Earth 3.5/10.
