Book 7 is The Hunt for Vulkan. Appearently vulkan have long been the last primarch in lore. The last of the primarchs vanishing after 1500 years, and its roughly 1500 years after the Horus Heresy now.

I'm quite interested in seeing another author write Vulkan. We've only really had Nick Kyme take him on. He was in Unremembered Empire but he was wild and insane the entire book so it wasn't like there was much characterization.

Yup. I am really, really happy to finally see somebody else write Vulkan. I just don't like Kymes writing at all, not liked a single thing he's written, but more than anything I hate the monopoly he seems to have on the Salamanders and Vulkan. Let someone else write, let's get a fresh perspective on the Primarch and the Legion. It's like Swallow had an iron hold on the Blood Angels as well, and Mcneill the Emperor's Children. Whilst I hate Swallows Blood Angels work, I enjoyed Flight of the Eisenstein quite a lot, I just don't like his take on Sanguinius and the Bangles, it's just very flat and uninteresting. Also with Mcneill, I actually like his portrayal of them, I like Fulgrim and some of the shorts, I didn't like Angel Exterminatus that much, but I still think he portrays the Emperors Children and Fulgrim well. But I'd just like to see other authors have a shot.

Abnett reimagined the Space Wolves beautifully imo, but then they let Wraight take control of them as well and he's brilliant as well writing them.

It's going to be hard to say what the writers are going to be allowed to do with Vulkan.

On one hand, it's 40K so the beast killing him is probably going to happen.

However on the flip side Vulkan is one person they may just have this as the thing that makes him disappear leaving it open if he's still alive or not.

It's really hard to say.

Not done with the book just yet, but where the f are Custodes? Everyone's talking about using merchant fleets to deliver bilions of fodder and bla bla, but seriously, zero mention of custodes? There's like 10,000 of them on Terra. Or is that later in the book?

I expect to see the custodian guard featuring in Throneworld, book 5, due to the emergence of a new faction in the fight.
