CIAPHAS CAIN THE LAST DITCH PDF

Over the course of the series, Cain becomes a massively acclaimed Hero of the Imperium, partly through opportunism, skill and minor heroism, but mostly through sheer blind luck. Sent to progressively more insanely dangerous warzones as his reputation grows, Cain actually wants nothing more than to find a quiet place to hide from the fighting. That is, if you believe him. Advertisement: Ten novels and nine short stories have so far been published. Many of the stories have been recompiled in omnibus editions.

For those unfamiliar with the series, it is about a ostensibly cowardly commissar political officer assigned to a mixed-gender unit of the Imperial Guard. Set in the Warhammer 40K universe, it follows Commissar Cain as he recounts his biography and how he went from being a lowly junior officer to one of the greatest heroes of the Imperium. The joke being that Ciaphas Cain considers himself to be nothing of the sort due to the fact that most of his victories come from either blind luck or due to exercising his well-honed instinct for self-preservation.

The Last Ditch feels like a retread, repeating the same basic story arc of a number of previous books. If it continues to simply rehash old stories, however, I may have to ditch it. Ciaphas Cain is a series I will continue to purchase the remainder of, especially since it has credibility to burn with me. I loved the original seven books and only occasionally thought they were repeating the same formula.

I mean, it took me until Fate of the Jedi to realize the Star Wars Expanded Universe had burned every last bit of goodwill it had with me. The basic conceit of the story is still there and enjoyable. In the setting of Warhammer 40K, where everyone is a religious fanatic for the God Emperor of Mankind, this makes him a military genius. Really, though I think my favorite character is probably Kasteen.

Kasteen is a no-nonsense soldier who backs up Ciaphas Cain no matter what his decision and a romance never develops. She too, gets to do some impressive things in the story. Mostly, she just seems to annoy him a couple of times before the plot is unceremoniously resolved.
