Emperor's Mercy is the first novel in the Bastion Wars novel series by Henry Zou. It was first published in 2009.

Emperor's Mercy is the first novel in the Bastion Wars novel series by Henry Zou. Inquisitor Roth and his henchman Silverstein are sent to the worlds of the Medina Corridor to uncover the location of a set of ancient artefacts.

This is one of the best Warhammer 40,000 books I have ever read. I can't believe this is Henry Zou's first book. Everything is incredibly detailed, from the characters to the weapons and all the combat scenes.

This is another Warhammer 40k book. This is the first book in a great series called the Bastion Wars. Henry Zou did a great job of putting personality into his characters and creating a universe within the 40k universe

Emperor’s Mercy, Henry Zou(Black Library, July 2009)The best and worst of Black Library fiction, brought to. .The book starts very promisingly. Zou can certainly write, and the narrative shifts confidently from tea boy to Warmaster to confused Naga Air Defence Major, Major Chanta.

Emperor’s Mercy, Henry Zou(Black Library, July 2009)The best and worst of Black Library fiction, brought to you by Justin Hill. It’s every wargamer’s dream: to win a Black Library short story competition, get a White Dwarf splash proclaiming you as the next best thing, and topping it off with a novel.

Emperor's Mercy book. I have yet to read Blood Gorgons (Warhammer 40,000), the third book, but it is my personal opinion that if Henry Zou continues to grow and mature in his writing, as it seems he is doing, then he will become one of the better authors in The Black Library's stable.

Emperor’s mercy in particular has much of the imagery has drawn from the British Imperialist campaigns in Afghanistan and India and merged within an overarching 40k setting.

I was hesitant to pick up this book. I had read some of the reviews and was ready to pass on this story. But, this being the author's first foray into 40k fiction, I decided to give him a chance and boy I'm glad I did.

This is not a perfect novel by far. Zou has a long way to go before he can match up with titans like Dan Abnett and Ben Counter. He does, however, have a lot of potential. Firstly Zou's cover-artist is among the best the Black Library has published to date. Now to the story.

I love the Inquisition, Abnett's Eisenhorn is a great series. This book follows Inquisitor Obodiah Roth as he fights his way to discovering the truth behind the Old Kings of Medina. There isn't a whole lot of character development on Roth or any of the other characters but as his first outting I find this forgiveable. What Zou does manage to do is provide you with characters that hold your interest, Silverstein the huntsman particularly caught my imagination and I hope to see him again in Zou's work later down the line.

The plot is a pretty linear treasure-hunt but the variety and description of the worlds that Roth visits makes for a compelling read. This story is definitely a good deal slower than most 40k books, it's not a space marine blood fest but I found this to be a benefit as well. Don't get me wrong, there is some heavy action and Zou seems to grasp some real understanding of strategy and tactics other than the usual Black Library "charge the overwhelming enemy force with chain swords and fight till the last man".

I do have my complaints (the dialogue is occasionally awkward) but overall I was thoroughly impressed by this novel. I feel like there is a conspiracy against Zou, he's gotten a lot of flak. Aaron Dembski-Bowden, another new BL author has been really hyped up but he failed to impress me in the same fashion as Zou. Regardless I'm looking forward to picking up Flesh and Iron.

This is another Warhammer 40k book. I am a fan of Warhammer 40k, and buy a lot of 40k novels. This book, however, I did not finish. I got to a scene where the Imperial Guard lead by a suicidal inquisitor charge the Chaos lines with a line of horses.... and lancers..... because obviously that's a realistic tactic right? Cavalry charges... tally ho, brass weapons.... and muskets in the year 40k.....

I don't expect "reality" with a 40k book. You would be an idiot to expect reality. But I do expect a good story. And this one just wasn't. The plot is scattered. The military sci fi angle sucks and the characters don't exist.

In a universe of out-sized characters, this makes them all small. Its more of a science fiction story than a 40k book. One good thing is thatt it does not suffer SJW as most Sci Fi currently does. Zou has potential, especially if more character developement happens & less scene description (gets a little tiribg & dry after a while).

This is the first book in a great series called the Bastion Wars. Henry Zou did a great job of putting personality into his characters and creating a universe within the 40k universe. This is the first of 3 book, the next two being 'Flesh and Iron' and 'Blood Gorgons', also great books.

If you are a fan, I guess you will find some enjoyment from this book...if you are not (like me), you will most likely be bored to tears.
I read this book as part of the Amazon Vine program, but honestly, I would not have read this otherwise.
As others have noted in their reviews, character development was sorely lacking. I found myself not really caring much for any of them...I couldn't pronounce most of their names even if my life depended on it, but that's true even for shows like King of Thrones...again, if you are a fan, you won't mind much...but the games probably do a better job at character development than this book.
The battles are really well told though, and I admit, I did find them somewhat interesting and even exciting at times.

All told, I gave this book a 3 star review, because although not my particular area of interest, it would be unfair to judge it negatively, as fans of the series would most likely find far more to like than a non-fan.

In summary, if you LOVE the Warhammer universe...take a dive...you may really enjoy it. If you aren't, you are not likely to be swayed by this book, but if you like action, and tons of battles in your books, you will probably find some entertainment here.
