Post a comment. A planet-wide insurrection has broken out on Periremunda, necessitating the deployment of the Imperial Guard to the planet to help crush it. The Valhallan th is part of the deployment, along with its increasingly legendary commissar, Ciaphas Cain, hero of the Imperium. As usual, Cain hopes for a quiet, simple assignment where he can sit out the trouble, and also as usual he finds himself instead at the cutting edge of danger. This time, a simple rebellion is revealed to mask a whole number of other threats which Cain and his ever-faithful aide Jurgen have to deal with. In this case, operations are complicated by Periremunda's unique geography, a world of burning, uninhabitable deserts with settled plateaus rising above them. Duty Calls is the fifth Ciaphas Cain novel and, disappointingly, is a little bit of a let-down after the terrific Death or Glory.
The Ciaphas Cain series is a collection of science fiction novels set in the Warhammer 40, universe. They center on the eponymous character, an Imperial Commissar of the Imperial Guard , and his varied and colorful career. Cain is the main character of Sandy Mitchell 's novels published by the Black Library. The Cain series currently stands at ten titles:. The novels are presented as Cain's personal and often rambling notes. After his death, a third party edited them into a more coherent form, interspersed them with footnotes or snippets of other accounts where Cain's first-person and self-centered perspective does not provide sufficient context, and made them available for use by the Holy Inquisition.
