It's an OK book for those die-hard 40K fans, especially if you play IG. Went kind of slow and I was hoping they'd build up some background on the two protagonist units (orks and chaos).

The key thing to 40k books is being realistic about what they are and aren't going to be. These here are 4 pulpy, ridiculous, action-laden stars. If you like the universe then dive in.

This was the third book by the Imperial Guard novels. The first Fifteen Hours by M. Scanlon and Deathworld by Steve Lyons. What can I say? It continued the great debut and the second book (my favourite of the series).The book had a decent Commissar for once Reading several book you tend to get incompetents, or heroes that completely fail to act like Commissars. He was also interesting, in that he didn't always get on with everyone else. In fact, many of the characters didn'tually anyone the hero [...]

This book is basically orks vs. space Russians, and it's every bit as entertaining as you'd imagine. Steve Parker is one of the better 40k writers, and his other Imperial Guard novel Gunheads was very engaging, so I had high hopes for this book. I wasn't disappointed. Although the protagonists are total caricatures of Russian/Cossacks, the author manages to fill them with personality. The dialogue is average to good, but the pacing and plot are the high points here. Parker never lets up on the a [...]

For whatever reason this one just did not work for me. I've liked a fair amount of Parker's work, so I'm not sure if it was just him finding his 40K "voice" here or what. The first chapter was a horrible slog for me, and after that it got a little better, but the overall plot just held zero interest for me. I enjoyed the snooty commissar, his assistant, and the sniper, but everyone else was just painful to read about. Could be it gets a lot better in the latter half, but I did not make it that f [...]

certainly a story you won't regret reading but overall just average for a w40k novel. sure there's a few interesting twists near the end which could set up a few very good sequels but as they are they're simply dead ends with no plan to finish them off. personally unfinished stories are a pet peeve of mine and while he may have meant to revisit the story he thus far hasn't.

A company of Vostroyan Firstborn must fight through Ork lines to bring a political prisoner back to base to be debriefed. It was a straight forward mission read full of action and moments of human interaction. The ending, although abrupt, showed how the soldiers in the field really didn't know about the intrigues at headquarters level.

Similar to fifteen hours, it is also really addicting but also gory.

first book on the Vostroyan's, and one of the best stories on the Imperial Guard.

Imperial Guard against Orks, the most satisfying mix.

A tragic story of the imperial vostrian 5th bettalion
