I enjoyed it but would not call it great. Instead, I found quite the opposite. I am a Tau lover so this book was for me. So, reading fiction that fleshes out one faction is exceedingly intriguing to me. Now now wait just a second! Elcarpe rated it really liked it Feb 17, Other books in the series. All the justification is there.

It is talked about as being a spurrire threat, a corrupting power in its own right. Toward the end it turns into an awkward buddy cop movie between an Ultramarine and Kais, then ends in a way fore really makes you feel like you’re reading a straight-up adaptation of a video game.
The Ultramarines Captain Ardias is given a similar personality upgrade and has far more believable motivations for his disappearance during the initial battle with the Tau and actions during the second half of the novel. This was a very solid Tau novel of a newbie Fire Warrior coming through the crucible of war much stronger than when we first went into it.
Why its rating here is so low, I honestly have no idea, although I suspect that Space Marines fanatics have downvoted the rating, like it happened with the Eldar Path novel series. As a WH40K fluff fan i loved this book.

This book encapsulates the problems with adapting books from computer games, especially first person shooters.

At the end of the day if you can forgive one or two minor discrepancies in the canon and the book skimming over aspects of Chaos usually emphasised in other novels, Fire Warrior is a solid read.
So why three stars, because Spurrier does one thing really well – he is great at describing Chaos and demons. The author or editor? 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.
It gets boring quickly because the plot armor is so thick you know nothing will happen to the protagonist, and the book doesn’t give many supporting cast to care about.
None of this is to say that the central characters are badly written or overlooked. Shryne rated it really liked it Aug 16, Can they make each faction seem real, as opposed to yet-another-army to fight the humans?
