Publisher's Summary

Vulkan lies in state beneath the Fortress of Hera, and yet many of his sons still refuse to believe that he is truly dead.

After a seemingly miraculous rescue by the Ultramarines, Artellus Numeon, once captain of the Pyre Guard, urges the other Salamanders on Macragge to leave Imperium Secundus and return their primarch's body to the home world of Nocturne - there to be reborn in the flames of Mount Deathfire. But Numeon grapples endlessly with his doubts and fears for the future of the Legion while their foes seek to carve out new destinies of their own....

too long didn't gel

i really wanted to love this book. In the end though i found that it was very repetitive and kind of stale. the only really engaging part was the creepy horrors of the warp. that part was excellent. I was listening to it at a store and right when the horror was stalking the protagonist a clerk tapped me on the shoulder. I nearly peed myself. the rest of the book is a bit too blunt and dull. as for the voice, I couldnt really get into his depiction of salamanders and tbh sometimes a lot of the voices sounded the same.

a continuation of the salamander legion

while Nick Kyme may not be held in as greater awe as Dan Abnett, Grahame McNeil or Aaron Demski Bowden when it comes to Black Library publications he has definitely grown in style and confidence when compared to his earlier works. Death Fire has been an enjoyable journey and is certainly something that I shall listen to again, although hearing 'Vulkan Lives' multiple times does get a bit annoying.

Saul Reichlin does a commendable job narrating the story and while his voices for the female and child characters can feel for a lack of a better term 'not quite right' at times this isn't too distracting.

Salamanders are hardy but not exotic fighters

Great for passing time bye, very in depth needs to be listened to more than once as characters get confusing especially as you get a 241

Beautiful and Poignant

Another good listen. Surprisingly complex and deep for a black library book. Can't wait for old earth.
