The Hunt for Vulkan

The Imperium is on the verge of destruction It needs a miracle to reunite the feuding High Lords and lead the armies of mankind to victory It needs a primarchTearing itself apart from within the Imperium is still virtually powerless to resist the ork advance When the A. Review also published here The Hunt for Vulkan has to be the most direct and contained book in the series so far In fact I was surprised to find that I was already half through the novel at some point with not much complicated happening It is focused on one thing Finding Vulkan and it did so wellThe downside to the Primarch focus is obviously that we get to see little of Terra or the wider Imperium once the hunt is on While there are some very cool moments involving Koorland and the High Lords in the first few chapters parallel to the Fists Exemplar s trip to the red planet kicked off in the previous installment the bulk of the story is set on Caldera where Vulkan is rud to reside nowadaysSome people may notice that Caldera isn t new to Black Library fiction While I haven t seen it brought up on fan forums before this is the world Vulkan named himself in Nick Kyme s Promethean Sun for the Horus Heresy series It wasn t an arbitrary choice to place Vulkan there but one that makes a degree of sense in context of what came before Though I am a little disappointed that David didn t take the opportunity to indulge in some dino warfare only mentioning shortly Either way bonus points for linking Vulkan back to the Great Crusade hereThis was Annandale s first Primarch outing While he has written for the Horus Heresy already he didn t get to tackle the super superhumans there After reading this book I m confident that he will do well once he gets the chance to do it again Vulkan comes across as a force of nature and in a way it felt like he was actively drawing strength from Caldera itself We know that Vulkan is physically the strongest of the Primarchs but held back a lot Here he is an unleashed Hulk crushing Orks left and right including their war machines It is over the top action that set him clearly apart from any Space Marine but is not without precedence if we look at the HH Direct ties to the HH series are kept to a minimum though and a lot about Vulkan himself is left open and mysterious The small tidbits we get are neat but nothing that will blow your mind with revelations for the Heresy The Hunt for Vulkan is the first book in the series that I d really say the Imperium is striking back against the orks in For the first time they are not just reacting to a threat but forcing the orks on the defensive A lot of that is down to Vulkan s battle prowess but also to the newfound unity under Koorland s leadership Unlike before the everybody for themselves mentality got replaced by everyon for the Imperium Where before we had some characters and groups act with the Imperium in mind or even offering sacrifices they were always somewhat contained to their respective situations Now they are acting for a greater purpose and the result is an important victory for the Last Wall and the wider ImperiumFans have long criticised that the other non Imperial Fists Chapters were missing from the stage We have been told that various big Chapters were engaged in their own parts of the galaxy but now we have a call to Terra that promises Blood Angels Space Wolves Dark Angels and Ultramarines for future installments We only get a glimpse of their reactions here but they are promising and in characterYet still at the end of the book I was surprised it was already over It didn t have as much going on for it as previous novels with their various plotlines all over There were various angles to it of course but mostly confined to the action on and around Caldera The Hunt for Vulkan is the heaviest book on action so far and rightfully so but I was still disappointed by the lack of complexity in the wider senseIt could have been but then it didn t need to be This was Vulkan s show to run and as such it succeeded

FREE DOWNLOAD The Hunt for Vulkan

While on the planet Caldera a mighty armoured warrior fights tirelessly against the orks is he the saviour the Imperium seeksA legend returns to the Imperium in its hour of need if Koorland and his warriors can fight their way through an army of orks to reach him that. This book is one of my favourites of the series so farFrom the moment it starts the book is pretty much a non stop rollercoaster of action and violence that doesn t let up for the whole of the book As title suggests this book concerns itself primarily with the hunt for the Primarch of the Salamanders chapter of Space Marines to act as a figure head for the Imperium which at the outset of this book is teetering on the edge of oblivion The pace is frenetic not giving you the time to draw breath as it storms from one action scene to the next culminating in a tremendous set piece at the end The fights and battles are gritty and really give you a sense of the brutality of war in the Warhammer 40000 universe as it s essentially Space Marines and Orks pummelling each other for most of the book that s pretty brutal indeedThe characters are as usual well written and believable Whilst this book covers in small parts the stories of others the core story arc mainly focuses on Koorland and Maximus Thane and their battles to keep the Imperium alive I really like the dynamic between these two it s in stark contrast to Zerberyn and Kalkator in the last book Where that focused on Zerberyn s struggles in working with a traitor and a heretic and Kalator s efforts to do whatever it is he was doing This book continues to explore the growing friendship between Koorland and Thane two people thrust into positions they never thought to find themselves Their respective struggles to lead whilst constantly battling self doubt are enthralling and lends a sense of humanity rarely seen in Space MarinesThere are however as with all the other books in this series all sorts of other stories going on with people of varying levels of significance This I think is one of the strengths of this series of books especially this book it s all the individual stories that come together in the end to build a larger narrative This serves to give an idea of how the events of the book affect different people without sacrificing the scale of the story indeed oftentimes it serves to entrench the sense of despair and hopelessnessTo sum up This book is feast of action and violence delivered at a relentless pace that leaves you wondering at times how things could actually come together for the Imperium The main characters are well written and surprisingly relatable an unusual trait for characters in this universe At the same time there are a wide array of secondary plotlines moving through the book all coming together in the endFive out five stars
