In the wake of the Dropsite Massacre at Isstvan V, the survivors of the Salamanders Legion searched long and hard for their fallen primarch, but to no avail. Little did they know that while Vulkan might have wished himself dead, he lives still... languishing in a hidden cell for the entertainment of a cruel gaoler, his brother Konrad Curze. Enduring a series of hellish tortures designed to break his body and spirit, Vulkan witnesses the depths of the Night Haunter's depravity, but also discovers something else - a revelation that could change the course of the entire war.

More open plot lines than the soprano finale
Tragically horrifying!! I loved it!! LOL!!
Nick has done a wonderful job bringing the characters alive with this book. He truly brings out both the humanity of the Salamanders legion and their hurt after Istvaan V.
My only gripe is that the exact strength of the Salamanders legion is not given. This is a critical part if Heresy lore. I think he gives it at 6,000 as he mentions this number when the legion is assembled before a city. 6,000 would fit as the Salamanders are the smallest legion- even smaller than the Thousand Sons at 10,000 before the Wolves did their work.
