of times a deep sense of dark grey and in the worsetimes a deep sense of dark grey and in the worse times all full pitch black Caiphas Cain brings us another kind of Commissar I ve read before Gaunt s Ghostsas you guessed if you reached here and I do have to say he is a coward I mean the ones that think that they are something and in truth they are the precise opposite The funny part is Caiphas himself tells you thatOver and over and over andThat is one of main negative aspect of these novels the repetition of Caiphas flaws and Veil over repetition of how bad that girl writes statements across the The Fix entire books jealousy is an ugly thing That and the first person view with so many details Come on No one have memories with 150 years old that clearly So if you ignore the narrative memorie mistake and the over repetition of how coward I am and how I don t give a damn about others you have a nice perspective from another type of Imperial Guard CommissarOn the bright side Ciaphas Cain novels take you around with a lot of Xenos and rebellions For my first true deep contact with Necrons it was lovely Besides Cain does have a tendency to bexactly where he wasn t supposed to So the book have a lot of variety of situations which makes it interesting Another great thing about this omnibus is the original short stories that come before the book In a way they spoil a bit of what is going to happen In another way the very positive way they give you Insight Of What Was I Loved Their of what was I loved their hereI am not so ager to read about Cain just because Sandy Mitchell does that rror over repetition As I can understand that from book to book alas this is supposed to be separated books no one told me to read them all in one go in the same book it becomes boringMaybe in the future I will miss the dissaventures of Caiphas and go back Still if that detail of narrative doesn t bother you at all read up It is a very nice serie of novels And you get to laugh now and then Had been curious about Ciaphas Cain now I will have to look into him I ve never read military sci fi before and those who are serious minded will claim I still haven t The Ciaphas Cain books take place in the Warhammer 40K universe which for anyone at all familiar with the gaming system will be aware of the fact that it is a very grim place to visit So it s doubly amazing that Sandy Mitchell s tales are such fun to readBefore we get much further allow. G for an asy life and a way to stay out of peril However fate has a habit of throwing him into the deadliest situations and luck mixed with self preservation always manages to pull him through and onto the loftiest of pedestals To survive Commissar Cain must dodge blu.

TRAITOR S HAND AND THE SHORT STORIES THE BEGUILINGs Hand and the short stories The Beguiling or Flight and Echoes of the and The Traitor s Hand and the short stories The Beguiling Fight or Flight and Echoes of the plot they follow is basically the same very time Caine and his regiment the 597th Valhallan are sent to some Emperorforsaken planet to fight against the scum of the universe and it generally develops into action loaded military campaigns and some politics and things tend to go xtremely ploin shaped I don t know what a ploin is or what shape it is but ploins and suinches are the funniest sounding vegetables I ve ver ncountered in fiction But the main reason to read these books is not the terribly original plot but that they re really Lachlan's Protg (English Edition) entertaining Caine and hisxtremely malodorous aide Jurgen are basically Blackadder and Baldrick transposed into the far future although Jurgen is actually very fficient in his work if not the brightest bulb in the chandelier The books are narrated by Caine as first person narrator and deliciously sarcasticIn addition to that there is an ditor who is revealed as Amberley Vail an Inuisitor who shares Caine s sense for sarcasm as well asother things and who peppers the text with her footnotes At regular intervals she adds xcerpts from other sources to complement Caine s rather self centered narration These are generally written in a prose so purple that it verges on ultra violet and Amberley repeatedly apologises for inflicting this on her readersCaine keeps insisting that his reputation as Hero of the Imperium is wholly undeserved and that what he really wants is peace and uiet and a nice glass of amasec Although he does things which appear nice on the outside like treating his soldiers with respect and sympathy and in turn arning their respect and almost friendship he insists that he does this for the sole reason that they ll like him nough to defend him in combat Also he goes on the first shuttle to mbark because that way he ll get the nicest uartersSomehow this image gets him stuck into the worst crisis situations against the worst monsters and through some cosmic irony and Jurgen s melta he always manages to vanuish them which adds to his image and gets him sent off to the next tricky placeIt is uestionable though how much of this hard shell is genuine as often he goes uite a bit beyond what would count as sheer Conflict in Blood egoism and he has a really good working relationship with both the simple troopers and the officers of the regimentSo in general I reallynjoyed this collection it was a nice ntertaining and funny readOne little thing though it kinda presupposes that you have a bit of background knowledge about Warhammer 40K which
