On the battlefields of Aexe Cardinal, the struggling forces of the Imperial Guard are locked in a deadly stalemate with the dark armies of Chaos. Commissar Ibram Gaunt and his regiment, the Tantih First - and - Only are thrown headlong into this living hell of trench warfare, where death from lethal artillery is always just a moment away. The only chance for Gaunt and his lightly armed scouts to survive is to volunteer for a mission so dangerous that no one else dares accept it.

Like Necropolis, Dan Abnett introduces us to the society of the host planet where the story takes place. We meet a worn veteran of the planet's decades-long war traveling to the local capitol. Through personal observations and reflections of this character, we learn about the history and mind set of the locals, which we know will play prevalently in the unfolding of the plot. Once again, the story truly begins once Imperial Forces arrive from orbit. From there it's an ongoing illustration of the entrenchment of military doctrine going against all attempts to evolve, resulting in stalemate upon the battlefield and nearly contributing to the victory of Chaos forces secretly bolstering the strength and tactics of the local enemies. Once again, Dan Abnett weaves a tale composed of numerous individual experiences where human beings overcome or are overwhelmed by adverse circumstances, emerging from the receding tide as heroes (martyred or surviving as the case may be) or tragic examples of human failings. There is little mention or description of Chaos in this story, rather it's solely about individuals and how they deal with the futility of their situations. It is a collective account of perserverence. There is a segment in the story where Gaunt is able to get half of his regiment taken off the brutal front lines and assigned to some "lighter" duty geared more towards their light infantry skills. In his mind, it is a glass half full - to be able to save at least half of his troops from the mindless butchery of the trenches. There are numerous other character-driven episodes in the book that will add to your appreciation of the story. I could go on, but I will complete this review by saying, that no matter what kind of subject matter you prefer in a novel, you will not be disappointed by this.

I found Straight Silver to be an enjoyable read and faithful continuation of the series. That being said, it did not have as many stunning or visceral moments as some of the others but it is still very good. If you like WH40k or Dan Abnett this book will not disapoint.

the whole war hammer series is great reading and very faced filled about a future war that could be possible.
My favorite thing about the 40K universe are the WWI overtones. I especially enjoy when a book or story pushes that to the forefront ("15 Hours," for instance). This is a book told against the backdrop of trench warfare.

My favorite character in the Gaunts' Ghosts series of books is Hlaine Larkin. I've nervously turned every page he was on since one specific scene in "First & Only" made him jump out to me. (Nervously because, obviously, no one is safe in these books - Gaunt, I guess, at least until the final book comes out, but, hell, I wouldn't put it past Abnett to kill Gaunt off & keep the name "in memory.") In this book, Larkin shines probably more than any other character because of what he witnessed in the previous book.

So this is essentially everything needed to make me read like a madman, drool over every page. Previous reviewers have it right, the ending is rushed, but that's kind of the way of the GG stuff. Overall it's the journey that matters with Abnett, not the destination. Everyone is kind of being pushed to where they need to be at the end of the "Saint" storyline here. Excellent writing, beautiful and evocative imagery.
