ordinary tasks oftasks of their Guard campaign Also Inuisitor Vail and her personal entorage 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 book is undiminished greater familiarity with the characters and their jobs allows for a little societal exploration considering how a person s place effects their relationship to the uestions of conscience and bravery Throughly enjoyable Even better than the last compendium A great collection of Cain novels that display everything we love about the character The short stories tease the following books well and each novel stands up solidly on it s own There is an overarching story that crosses all three novels and you ll especially get the "most out of Cain s Last Stand if you ve read "out of Cain s Last Stand if you ve read other two but it doesn t take away from the other novels in any wayIf you enjoy 40k but want something a bit fun to read I highly recommend Fans of Blackadder or Harry Flashman will enjoy It was a fun read Cain is one of my fave characters ever and let s not forget Jurgen It was also great to get another glimpse of the necrons who are my fave species in the WH 40K univers.
