For The Emperor

Sandy Mitchell paints Commissar Cain as a self-serving leader, who would put his troops between himself and the enemy to save his own hide, yet always manages to come out of situations looking like a hero. Greatest amongst his soldiers are the Adeptus Astartes, the Space Marines, bio-engineered super-warriors.

With the soldiers of the formation mistrustful and resentful of one another, Cain must find a way of integrating the two sides before their new mission can even get underway. The performance captures Cain’s personality well and the interludes from the Inquisitor and excerpts of Sulla’s memoirs are handled great. From Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum.

After this release of tension, they are able to focus on finding their way back to the surface — and neither of them can muster much surprise when a route from the genestealers’ nest takes them to a secret cellar beneath cizphas Governor’s palace. The tthe, as presented in the novels, is that Cain is the sort of person he himself is supposed to execute: Cuaphas still grim dark, but its narrator is a sarcastic wit who despite being all for himself nevertheless stumbles into heroism. She laughed, a warm, smoky chuckle which warmed me like amasec, and I realised she was pulling my leg.

This book was fantastic! Further good news comes when two of the troopers from their party appear at the tunnel entrance, miraculously alive. In a different universe he could be replaced by a scruffy dog. I actually own the Hero of the Imperium omnibus but felt that each book should get it’s own review.


For a moment they argue over whether he really knows where he’s going, putting him in mind of “a couple of juvies on a disappointing date” — an image caln incongruous with their situation that both of them burst into hysterical laughter.

Cain is a self serving man and always more interested in saving his own skin than anything else. The reluctant hero is sent to a Valhallan regiment.

For the Emperor, unlike most of the series, also has an element of mystery and intrigue, with a Sinister Conspiracy trying to pit our heroes and some aliens against each other in a war — for this reason, For the Emperor is one of my favorites of all of Mitchell’s work.
