With all the bad news, stressful situations, and other unpleasantness that tends to follow or find us everyday, sometimes all that we would like to do is find a safe place to hunker down and wait for better times to come our way.

Like all the Warhammer 40K books available (and there are great number of them), this series has caught my attention in a way that the others have failed to do so. Instead of warfare of an utterly overwhelming scale, these stories focus on the life and (somewhat troubled) times of one man trying his hardest to stay out of the way but instead finding himself inadvertently caught up in circumstances beyond his control.

While the universe in which the stories take place is filled with sights and places beyond our own, the events and how Cain reacts to them struck me as how a regular person would react, including the initial fear of the unknown and the excitement of coming out unscathed against all odds.

Very highly recommended for those who are fans of the Warhammer 40K universe (no matter which faction you prefer) and for those readers who are looking for something to escape with from the daily grind only to find yourself getting caught up in another fine mess with Cain and his cohorts.
