Also I would say Kymes Salamanders are the worst portrayed legion thus far, along with the Blood Angels, courtesy of Swallow the prick.

This! Nick Kyme has only managed to write some good EC-shorts and Censure in the HH-series so far. Swallow haven't done anything interestingly good since his short in AoD.

Perhaps it might interest you then. Aeonid Thiel returns and plays a prominent role in the early parts of the book.

I'm struggling to keep reading this. I'll finish it, obv. It's just so pedestrianly written that my mind wanders away from the words and then when I focus again still nothing interesting or well-crafted is happening. Though admittedly I'm only a third of the way through it.
I guess I'm interested in what happens with Narek, to be fair.

I am very much looking forward to "Deathfire". But considering I have to wait for the mass paperback my patience will be stretched to its limits. I like Mr. Kyme's writing a lot.

"We've been looking for the enemy for some time now. We've finally found him. We're surrounded. That simplifies things."

Ordered Deathfire tonight, after Lucian's praise and hearing the actual page count, I am really looking forward to reading it.

The eBook is 408 pages on my iPad, but I might have reduced the font size in the past. Fucking iBooks of course doesn't give you the font size as a number.

Naaaaaah fuck off! Kyme has never used such cliched and overused lines like that in his other novels!

I'll reserve my judgement until I manage to grab a hold of the book, although I do like Salamanders and am looking forward to it. While some of the phrases used by Kyme can get repetitive, what do you exactly expect from a chapter that's entirely based on fire and earth lol. They certainly won't scream " Waaaagh or Blood for the Blood God or crackle stupid jokes like Sons of Horus. Compared to cheesyness I've read in Bowden's Helsreach ( EMhagwad im black templar and will smite you filthy xeno with my holy sword sdjasdjasjda ) and other black templar related novels, Salamanders are softcore.

Pretty sure " Master of Mankind " will drag you back, if anything
