Well worth your money and a must buy for any devoted Tau fan. The final combat is shockingly good. Effectively bringing about the presence of every faction he needs to carry out his plans and having them play their role exactly when he needs them to.
I hope for more Tau books and keep my fingers crosses that Kais will reappear in future novels. This was really just made to make money in my opinion and poularize the new Tau race in Warhammer 40k, personally one would be better off reading fan fiction than reading this. Some of the words used were obviously incorrect for the context and others, though they conveyed the correct meaning, just KILLED the flow of prose through my mind.

Feb 11, Kelton rated it it was amazing. It starts as a slow spiral that quickly accelerates, slows down so you can catch your breath and to allow some foreshadowing, then goes straight into a headlong dive.
A graphic description of a video game at least that’s zimon my mind’s eye sees it. Preview — Fire Warrior by Simon Spurrier. Return to Book Page. Jan 28, Matt rated it liked it Shelves: However, its servants never manage to express how they have been fighting the Imperium for ten thousand years in any believable fashion.
We follow Kais, a Tau fire warrior who doesn’t quite fit in, on his first mission, to rescue a respected leader from some Adeptus Astartes.
Fire Warrior (Warhammer 40,) by Simon Spurrier – Risingshadow
Perhaps the best example of this is Tikoloshe, an insane dreadnought Kais encounters skmon fleeing a stricken vessel. Can they make each faction seem real, as opposed to yet-another-army to fight the humans?
None of this is to say that the central characters are warrio written or overlooked. When one powerful Ethereal crash lands behind Imperial lines, the young Fire Warrior is sent to rescue him.
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. Well worth your money and a must buy for any devoted Tau fan. Spurrior does an excellent job making Tau culture different than Imperium culture and I really enjoyed reading about Tau battlesuits.
The prose suprrier some of the clumsiest stuff I’ve ever made myself read. Effectively bringing about the presence of every faction he needs to carry out his plans and having them play their role exactly when he needs them to.
David rated it liked it Jan 16, Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. So, you get a lone tau warrior killing a squad of Space Marines, mostly because he can out-run bolters and then taking down a Titan single-handed. Nov 15, Christian rated it really liked it. 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 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.
Fire Warrior by Simon Spurrier – Book Review [Bellarius] « Black Library « The Founding Fields
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. This is the perfect setting for a miniatures game where two people with different factions can face off. All of these things make for a great book. There is introspection on the part of the hero. Books by Simon Spurrier.
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. This is a visible problem with Chaos.
A horrible game accompanied by a very very mundane and boring book. 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.
