Balls to the walls action! A very memorable classic cast of characters: gene stealer cultists, an Imperial storm troop officer who looks like hammered shit, but is the very definition of badass, a monomaniacal Commissar, and an insane bolter nun. The story is non-stop action from front to back. This book is why I got into Warhammer 40,000 novels and is the definition, for me at least, of what a good Warhammer book should look like.

It took me a while to get into the book due its structure which has sections describing parts close to the ending, but perseverance paid off with a story which slowly sucked me in. Each little bit of the ending which came up was slowly filled in as you read. The major characters are quite interesting and you become more interested in who they are and become as you get deeper. The ending was quite a surprise; finding out the hidden intentions of the Sororitas, who the enemies really are and the o ...more

This time we get to see why extremism of any kind is shit, if it's possible to say that Imperium could get even more extremist than it is now.

The story follows Major Zane Mortensen, a total badass between total badasses, of the Imperial Elite Special Force - stormtroopers, leading a stormtrooper cadre known as Redemption Corps. They're not rank-and-file, they are the best, trained to undertake the most rigorous scenarios that Imperial war machine can offer. Redemption Corps never run, as to quot

Recommends it for: Anyone that enjoys IG or Black Library.
Shelves: black-library, 40k
This was an interesting reading even for IG branch. A bit of mystery and full of mayhem (as all of them). The only difference was the pace of the story. This one was at sometimes a bit slow.

This book centers on Mortensen (the only survivor of his world) and his band of stormtroopers. With Krieg (Commissar) are the main characters and most developded characters. There are a couple of other characters (like Rosenkratz) with some insight and development.

Inbetween each chapter or couple of chapters

Eroldren reviews Rob Sanders’ debut novel from Black Library, Redemption Corps, an Imperial Guard novel.

“Sidestepping away from the Guardsman norm Rob Sanders instead tackles their elite: Storm Troopers. However, certain aspects of the novel muddle down part of the reading experience.” – The Founding Fields

Being the first novel for Rob Sanders is no means his first published story for Black Library, in

A terrible disappointment. The opening pages contain some of the most vivid prose I've ever read, it's therefore tragic that the book races downhill from then on with some fundamental writing errors and an utter dearth of believable characters, in fact his main protagonist stretches the boundaries of 'suspension of disbelief' to beyond breaking point.

His opening chapter introduces a glut of characters and then races into a combat scene before any of them have lived long enough to make an impres

One of the worst 40k books I have ever tried to read. Confusing prose and forgettable characters. It's pretty common for main characters to get killed off in 40k books, but these ones keep living 300 pages too long.

In the empire of humanized planets, the emperor is the only authorized religion. This is enforced by various military and religous orders including a military force called the Redemption Corps. When Major Zane Martensen becomes too successful at the profession of arms, a set of cult-sisters similar to the Spanish Inquistors want him dead.

This to me felt like a love-child between Warhammer 40,000 and Black Hawk Down. It's not an amazingly paced book but it brought enough to the table to make it feel like a solid science fiction military scrap worth a good glance.

Liked the book but was a hard going read compared to much of the genre I've been reading recently. Plot flashes forwards and backwards in time too much. This goes too far and becomes annoying

Great story, difficult to read though. Not a bad writer, he just was not fluid and easy to understand the first time through.

Rob Sanders is a freelance writer, who spends his nights creating dark visions for regular visitors to the 41st millennium to relive in the privacy of their own nightmares. By contrast, as Head of English at a local secondary school, he spends his days beating (not literally) the same creativity out of the next generation in order to cripple any chance of future competition. He lives off the beate ...more
