Didn t diminish it at all Love it
following in the footsteps of hero of the in the footsteps of Hero of the this collection has all the adventure one could want The supporting characters Cols Kasteen and Broklaw are given a real opportunity to shine when Comissar Cain is mbroiled in an Inuisitorial mission and is therefore less involved in the ordinary tasks of managing their Guard campaign Also Inuisitor Vail and her personal ntorage are a lot of fun and its interesting to see how they interact with
each other and with outsiders While the soul searching of the previous other and with outsiders While the soul searching of the previous is undiminished greater familiarity with the characters and their jobs allows for A Little Societal Exploration Considering little societal xploration considering a person s place ffects their relationship to the uestions of conscience and bravery Orks Tyrnids and Necrons Oh my This omnibus felt a bit less interesting than the previous one however while it was not bad it lacked a lot of the style that first made me love Ciaphas Cain Though this omnibus has a thread that runs through it and ties the 3 books together in a way the previous did not Which makes it asier to invest in the story Can recommend it though if you njoyed the previous It is still good Warhammer 40K Another fantastic collections of stories starring our favourite Commisa. Ly grows and his life is in ver greater jeopardy Defender of the Imperium contains the novels Death or Glory Duty Calls and Cain’s Last Stand plus the short story Traitor’s Gambit and a new introduction from author Sandy Mitchell. It was a fun read Cain is one of my fave characters
ever and let s not forget Jurgen It was also great to and let s not forget Jurgen It was also great to another glimpse of the necrons who are my fave species in the WH 40K universe A great collection of Cain novels that display verything we love about the character
The Short Stories Tease short stories tease following books well and ach novel stands up solidly on it s own There is an overarching story that crosses all three novels and you ll specially get the most out of Cain s Last Stand if you ve read the other two but it doesn t take away from the other novels in any wayIf you njoy 40k but want something a bit fun to read I highly recommend Fans of Blackadder or Harry Flashman will New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood enjoy Throughlynjoyable Even better than the last compendium I ve almost given up on the 40K universe with its immensely purple prose and steroid driven fatalism More than a couple of novels I ve tried have left me wanting to mount my own Waaaaaagh in frustration with the thickly lathered on scifi angst but the Ciapahas Cain books reeled me back in uite happily too The Cain books are smartly written with our none too reliable narrator Ciaphas Cain appearing to be a cross between Harry Flashman and Blackadder but smack dab in the middle of the sci fi universe of Warhammer 40K A sel. The legendary Commissar Ciaphas Cain lauded as one of the great heroes of the Imperium finds himself thrust onto the battlefield again Cain wants nothing than to keep out of trouble and get to the other side of his commission in one .
F described coward Cain s opportunism fighting skill and sheer blind luck make him a massively acclaimed Hero of the Imperium something he d rather avoid since this status inevitably brings him into and danger The writing is witty fast light and sometimes peppered with silliness clothed in respectable word play
and since this is still happening in the since this is still happening in the universe In the grim future of the 40th millennium t Ciaphas Cain is definitely one of my favorite characters I liked this omnibus less than the first one mostly because the middle novel dragged a bit I prefer Cain out on his own forced to be the hero veryone thinks he is rather than when Amberly is pulling the strings The first book in the trio was probably one of my favorites as Cain cobbles together an army to fight orks while trying to flee to safety The short stories were both fun and the last novel or less tied it all neatly togetherOverall if you are a Cain fan definitely pick the second
up It not disappoint Loved these books Ciaphas Cain is a really likable sympathetic character on top of being a complete and utter badass and Jurgen is a great side kick Every book is highly ntertaining and fun really fun My one complaint is that the nding of the last book felt very uite rushed but that. Iece but the war torn 41st millennium has other ideas Confronted with the powers of Chaos and hordes of alien foes our intrepid Commissar seeks to sidestep danger and talk his way out of trouble Yet ach time he survives his legend on.omnibus up it
