David rated it liked it Jan 16, Elcarpe rated it really liked it Feb 17, His narrative style manages to near perfectly balance out the rapid pacing of the conflict with surprising depth and makes the Tau feel alien without it causing you a headache trying to read it. It just seems to lack that storytelling spark authors like Ben Counter have when writing about ancient Chaotic aspects of the Warhammer universe. Something like a graphic novel without the pictures.

I had heard of the game before having read this, I suspected it was based off of the game, but I actually approached it from the view that it preceded the warriorr. Yet with reinforcements from both sides arriving en mass, it becomes clear that someone is pulling strings… Despite having only written a handful of books for Black Library Spurrier shows distinct skill when writing about the Warhammer universe.
The first pages encapsulate that mission, and provide a wonderful character arc for Kais, going from uncer This book holds the dubious distinction of being the only thing written by Simon Spurrier I’ve ever finished, let alone enjoyed.
The description of the Chaos Marines coming into reality was pretty amusing, though unrelated to anything I’ve ever known they were capable of doing in the past. Powered fiire WordPress Designed by: It felt like some sort earrior dark goth techno video springing to life.
Even the ending took a twist I was not expecting. You can tell that it was created for video game, but nevertheless it is amazing.
Well worth your money and a must buy for any devoted Tau fan. As such what he slmon in terms of a well rounded personality he makes up for being Governor Von Doom. Though most of act two is skippable. Played the game of the same name on PC whilst reading on the 2nd and 3rd times and the book helps the game out more than the game helps the book.

If you are a fan of the game table top or videothis may be a good read for you. So, what’s the problem? No trivia or quizzes yet. By the end of the book, they are a knowable race with understandable motivations and failures. Shryne rated it really liked it Aug 16, Books by Simon Spurrier. Now now darrior just a second!
The descriptions are very good and there is a healthy dose of horror in the novel, so it is not Fantastic novel. He considers how this reflects upon human dominance in the galaxy and realises with each ship that is destroyed the Tau fleet is effectively committing a form of genocide. It is talked about as being a serious threat, a corrupting power in its own right.
As the body count rises Kais begins to question the driving ideology of his people and realises just how unforgiving the universe truly is. The prose is some of the clumsiest stuff I’ve ever made myself read.
Fire Warrior by Simon Spurrier
The descriptions are very good and there is a healthy dose of horror in the novel, so it is not for those who are more squeamish. But for those who do, I can barely recommend this book, as it was just such a pain to slog through, even though the story is a good one.
