On an Imperial outpost world on the fringes of tau space, the renowned Commissar Ciaphas Cain and his fractious regiment of Valhallan Guard, newly created from the remnants of two devastated units, find themselves in the middle of a war. 

As the Astra Militarum struggle to contain worldwide civil insurrection, can the wily Commissar Cain identify the real villain before the planet is lost to the Imperium forever?

Just as Entertaining as I Remembered

Great experience, breezed through it in less than 3 days, without making an effort to. It just happened. Cain was due a re-read anyway, and this was an expedient and hugely entertaining way to go about it. It's been about 10 years since I last read For the Emperor, and I have to say that it was every bit as entertaining as back then, if not more so.

I hadn't heard much of Stephen Perring outside of audio drama appearances, but he nails Cain pretty well. What neither the Black Library site nor Audible tell you though is that he's not the only narrator - I was worried they'd have our Lady Inquisitor's annotations read by Perring as well, but they picked Penelope Rawlins for those, with Emma Gregory for some excerpts within the editorial notes. It truly was a perfectly handled adaptation.

I pray that they will be recording the rest of the series in the same way, and I'll buy them all.

Good shit

Some of the finest piece of literature the emperor has to offer. I need the second part as soon as possible.

Better than expected (and I expected alot!)

Having listened to several W40K before, usually by the epic speaker Toby Longworth, I'm seriously glad that Stephen Perring was reading this one. Perfectly fitting voice, with judt the right amount of exasperation and humor to illustrate the words being read.
I would have liked the footnotes of the female inquisitor to be read with a *slight* pause at the beginning though. Currently, she basically starts speaking the very MILLISECOND Perring stops. Puts me off a bit, but all in all is still well done.

I really hope the other books get an audio version as well.

cynical fun in the grim darkness of the far future

A great intro for people without much experience on 40k lore and a nice twist for everyone jaded by constant stife.

Warhammer 40k was always to bleak for me in book form, since everybody that is not a Ultramarine usually dies. Ciaphas gives the zealous mind of a Commissar a bit of believability even if none of his colleagues would admit to it.

Good sound production, VAs did a great job. My only gripe is, that at this point, there are not more CC books available on Audible.
