It's hard sometimes to be a 40K fan, not only due to the stigma of being a sci-fi junky but because the Black Library can be pretty unpredictable. Just look at the Horus Heresy, you know what i'm talking about. But then along comes a book and a writer that reminds you why you love the 41st Millenium and its incredible universe, giving you that fix of grim and dark in spades. The Redemption Corps is one such underlit example. Nothing in this story is nice, cuddly or even damn near kind enough to let you stop for breath. Rob Sanders has tapped into the heart of 40K and delivered what I honestly think to be one of the best representations of the genre. His entire style is dirty and realistic, with Mortensen emerging as the epitome of his world. Brutal, effective and wholly unforgiving no wonder the Sisters of Battle come to pursue him, he's as unrelenting as a Saint. So if you want to storm your way through some excellent fiction sporting mutinys, planetary rebellions and terrible xenos give Redemption Corps your time. It's so realistic you'll come away smeared in the guts of the far future, and you'll love it.
