An Astra Militarum novel. Caught between rebels and orks on the icy Danik's World, a company of Vostroyan Firstborn are cut off and must survive behind enemy lines while escorting a vital traitor through territory filled with threat. EAD IT BECAUSE It doesn't get much more classic than the Imperial Guard fighting ork. nd throw some rebels, a secret mission and tension with high command, and you have all the makings of a stone cold (or ice cold, perhaps) classic.

One of the few 40k novels I've actually read because it was based around the Vostroyan imperial Guard. At the time(I don't know if it's changed) there was very little information about the Vostroyans and I was putting together a small army for the 40k miniatures game. In order to get some inspiration for painting and sculpting, I figured i'd dive into the 'fluff' as it's called and read the book.

I'm primarily a fan of fantasy/sci-fi so this was right up my alley anyways. The book was good, the characters gave me a lot of insight into the culture of their people and, of course, there was plenty of grim and dark battles where hope was lost but the characters never became hopeless(because that would be heresy.)

All in all a good read, especially if you like the Imperial Guard novels from the 40k series.

It's a decent enough book. The story is interesting, but for the more avid fans of the Warhammer 40K universe, it may be a bit... underwhelming. The continuity of the story suffers from random bits of irrelevant moments that add nothing and distract from the story; naming schemes differ from the canon (At least a couple Vostroyans have Tallarn sounding naming schemes, instead of the Russian/Polish/Slavic themes from the canonical Codices and storylines). That said, it's pretty much the only Vostroyan exclusive publication you're going to find. For that alone, it's worth it to a Vostroyan fan (why I bought it, and ended up being somewhat disappointed). Ultimately, my final point is this: It's really cool. There is a great insight into the Vostroyans and other aspects of the IG that sometimes don't get seen/heard. Downside is that the sketchy writing style and canonical discrepancies even it out from great to simply acceptable at best.

Great story of the vostroyan firstborn fighting and surviving, helps give a good feel of one of the Imperial guard regiments that doesnt get enough love.

Rebel Winter is a solid Imperial Guard book. While it isn't a book that is at the top of WH40K books for me, it's worth the price of admission and your time.

This book addresses the imperial guard and I have to admit I am not a fan. The book seems to both throw the lives of the guard away at one minute and the next, they seem impossible to kill. I would not suggest this book unless you are already interested in the guard.

The Story: On the brutal battlefields of the 41st Millennium, the life of an Imperial Guardsman is harsh and short. On the snowy wastes of Danik's World, a regiment of Vostroyans is ordered to hold their ground to protect the retreat of other Imperial forces. When their own orders come to move back, they discover they have been stranded behind enemy lines. Cold, hungry and running out of supplies, trapped between rebel forces and hordes of orks, can the Guardsmen ever fight their way back to safety?

The Review: Bookworm is a member of many fandoms across the creative hemisphere. Star Trek, Star Wars, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Fallout and a few others. Warhammer 40k stands out among all of them. For one thing, Bookworm owns more books about the 41st Millennium than all the others combined. Also because of something a little more esoteric. Warhammer 40k is one of the most fantastical and one of the most visceral human franchises he has ever seen.

Star Wars and Star Trek have one thing in common: They represent idealism. Pure and Noble heroes out to save the day in a rich universe ripe for exploration. Warhammer 40k on the other hand, is the complete inverse. It may be a rich universe, but it is a universe of darkness. The stars are filled with monsters and madmen that want nothing better than to bite your face off among other terrible things.

Life for the majority is a merciless grind and the ‘heroes’ of such a universe are monstrous beings crafted to freakish proportions by half-forgotten sciences and oftentimes the product of entire cultures whose only purpose is to battle. Literally…the entire industrial and social output of the planet Vostroya is to produce soldiers and weapons for the never-ending Imperial war effort.

One such culture is the Planet Vostroya and the Vostroyan First Born. There is no going home for them. Maybe one or two of them may live long enough to go back and train the next generation of Vostroyans, the rest will die unsung.

This immediately makes the characters, not so much relatable, but appealing. They already have a gripping narrative. The inklings of the larger Vostroyan culture that filter through the narrative are very fascinating. The history of previous campaigns also add an interesting context to explain the Vostroyan’s what they are and also highlighting the brutal nature of the galaxy they live in.

What was really one facet of the story that kept Bookworm going was the same thing that kept the regiment going: They never gave up. That is true for a great many stories in Warhammer 40k. No matter how hopeless it became. No matter how many died. No matter how much the enemy outnumbered them, the Vostroyan’s never stopped fighting. To do otherwise would spit on their homeworld and their Emperor, to which to both they dedicated their lives. The whole text could be seen as one, long, last stand, which are always a great sell.

One scene that exemplifies this where the regiment is forced to drive through a firestorm and when they make it, they realize that the driver has died. He was being burned alive throughout the ordeal and never stopped or even cried out. As said by the leader, “he died a true Vostroyan.” That scene really grips at the heartstrings. There are several more in the book and instead of bringing them down, it only pushes them forward.

Final Verdict: In spite of its fantastical surroundings, Rebel Winter and indeed many of the tomes about the Imperial Guard are probably the most realistic depictions of war there are. There is little glory, just a long grind. It involves soldiers that are tired and hungry and not feeling particularly brave. When victory is achieved, it often feels hollow, but is not much else to do but square their soldiers and go on to whatever comes next. That is Warhmmer 40k is so addicting. It is so relatable on so many levels. Even in a culture as corrupt and oppressive as the Imperium of Man, noble traits like duty, honor, loyalty, self-sacrifice still have not died.
