I just finished reading Promethean Sun this morning and I am really liking what Kyme is doing with the Salamanders. The battle scenes are grand with great combat descriptions so you feel the heat of the jungle and strength of each hammer blow. He sets up a rather stark contrast between Vulkan and the other 2 primarchs in the book. Each has their own distinct identity and he shows you the differences between their styles of saving a planet.
The thing that you really walk away form this story understanding is Vulkan is a life saver and not a life taker. He for lack of a better term is the most "human" of the primarchs. He is sort of the proof of nature vs nurture. He has great power and is a strong leader but not a tyrant because of it.
All in all it is a good story with some very enlightening moments about Vulkan's past and has enough twist to keep you interested throughout the book.
I give it a 3.5 out of 5
