Nick Kyme

Sons of the Forge

Unscarred, unbroken
Charged with a solemn duty by the primarch himself, Forgefather T’kell of the Salamanders prepares for what may well be his final journey. Along with a chosen few of the Legion’s elite Firedrakes, he must bear the last seven of Vulkan’s greatest weapons away to the secret vault known as the Wrought, putting them forever beyond the reach of treacherous enemy and well-intentioned ally alike. But word has already spread of these legendary artefacts, and there are many who would see T’kell’s endeavour fail for their own gain – the Salamanders must remain true, no matter what horrors they might ...

The Silent War

Chosen of the Sigillite
Across the galaxy, war rages… but while great battle and heroic deeds form the backbone of the war, the conflict extends much further, into darkness and shadow.

Eye of Terra

I am the Emperor's vigilance
The galaxy burns at Horus’s command, and a billion more lives are lost with each passing moment – though it was not always so. Once, the title of Warmaster stood for honour, loyalty and a fierce pride in the strength of the Space Marine Legions. But perhaps by following the myriad lines of destiny and defiance that were already woven around the primarchs and their sons, we may yet come to understand the bitterness that can eat away at even the most steadfast of souls….

Red-Marked

Audio Drama : 75 min
Though the Word Bearers’ attack on Calth and the subsequent Shadow Crusade into Ultramar are but a memory, the borders of Imperium Secundus are far from secure. Sergeant Aeonid Thiel, stranded on the garrison world of Oran on his way back to Macragge, frustrates his superiors once again by pointing out the holes in their defence – traitor warband activity is increasing, and a series of key listening posts have fallen silent. Leading a handful of rogue veterans and wearing the red mark of censure like a badge of honour, can Thiel uncover the truth behind the mysterious ‘Nightfane’?.
3/5

Red-Marked ne pourra être qu'un bonus au vu de ce qu'il raconte et même si l'histoire fera un grand pas en arrière, son écoute resta une bonne expérience pour moi. Avec les dernières pratiques de la Black Library, nous retrouverons surement cet audio drama en script dans un recueil...

La Guerre Éternelle

Heresy Begets Retribution
La vision de L'Empereur pour l'humanité a été réduite en lambeaux, et la Grande Croisade n'est plus qu'un lointain souvenir. Et alors que les flammes de la rébellion d'Horus se répandent au travers de la galaxie et que la guerre engloutit chaque jour de nouveaux systèmes planétaires, certains osent poser la question qui brûle tant de lèvres : les signes n'étaient-ils pas visibles depuis le début? L'époque est sombre, et une seule chose est certaine : la galaxie ne sera plus jamais en paix, ni dans cette vie ni dans les mille à venir….

Retour au Mont Deathfire

Au cœur de l'orage
Le corps de Vulkan est exposé solennellement sous la Forteresse de Hera, mais malgré cela, la plupart de ses fils refusent d'admettre qu'il est vraiment mort. Après qu'il ait été miraculeusement sauvé par par les Ultramarines, Artellus Numeon, autrefois capitaine de la Garde du Brasier, exhorte les Salamanders ayant trouvé refuge sur Macragge de quitter l'Imperium Secundus afin de ramener le corps de leur primarche sur Nocturne, où il pourra être ressuscité dans les flammes du Mont Deathfire. Mais Numeon se débat avec ses doutes, et craint pour l'avenir de sa légion, alors que les ennemis d...
3/5

Deathfire commençait plutôt bien et affichait de bonnes intentions de la part de l'auteur. Malheureusement il me fut difficile d'occulter certains aspects du roman enterrant le scénario sous des non-sens (ésotériques parfois). Le récit fut mieux maitrisé que Vulkan est Vivant, certes ma...

Meduson

Driven almost to the brink of self-destruction by the death of Ferrus Manus, the Iron Hands now seek vengeance for the many horrors of Isstvan V. Gathering survivors from the Raven Guard and the Salamanders aboard any vessels capable of warp travel, they wage a new campaign of annihilation against the traitor forces across the galaxy — a campaign masterminded by legendary warleader Shadrak Meduson.

Artefacts

Before the massacre on Isstvan V, the primarch Vulkan returns to his forge on Nocturne to prepare for war against the traitors. However, in light of recent conflicts with his wayward brother Konrad Curze, he looks upon his personal armoury with a startling new clarity. If the wrath of the supposedly loyal Night Lords can be unleashed upon their own home world in a moment of unchecked rage, is it wise for any Legion to have access to such devastating devices as the Engine of Woes, the Unbound Flame or the Song of Entropy?.
4/5

L’histoire de Vulkan est triste, mais avec Artefacts, Nick Kyme ajoute une couche d’ironie qui rend le personnage encore plus profond, comme si le destin avait voulu s’acharner. Avec son insertion parfaite dans la trame de l'Hérésie, de Vulkan mais aussi celle plus globale des Salamanders il...

The Phoenician

On the black sands of Isstvan V, Gabriel Santar is dying. Struck down by his former battle-brother, Julius Kaesoron of the Emperor’s Children, he watches helplessly as his father Ferrus Manus is murdered by the thrice-damned traitor Fulgrim. But Santar’s fading sight reveals far more about the supposedly perfect Phoenician primarch than anyone could have guessed – is it too late for this revelation to have any value to the Iron Hands Legion?.
