An Astra Militarum novel

The disgraced Vostroyan 77th Imperial Guard face a violent uprising on a prison planet, not to mention the hostile attentions of their new commissar. Can they achieve victory and restore their reputation?

It's an interesting take on the Imperial Guard – seeing a disgraced unit through the eyes of the commissar who's been sent to turn them back into a useful fighting unit.


Deployed to the prison planet of Furia Penitens to quell a violent uprising, the 77th Vostroyan Firstborn regiment of the Imperial Guard find themselves in a precarious position. The rebels are in a fortified prison-hive, all but impenetrable. A disgrace suffered by their forebears haunts them. And they hate their new commissar… Can Commissar Flint bring them victory and restore their reputation, or will the 77th fail again?
