Summary

Ciaphas Cain returns! As the tyranids ravage the jungle moon on which he is stationed, the Hero of the Imperium must do the unthinkable and ally with the sinister dark eldar.

As the Tyrannic Wars sweep across the face of the Eastern Fringe, Cain and Jurgen find themselves on the jungle moon of a gas giant, fighting off a splinter fleet. The world is uninhabited, but must be protected to prevent the tyranid advance threatening several nearby systems. The situation goes from bad to worse when Cain and the Catachans run into a force of insidious xenos, and the two factions are thrown into a temporary alliance purely to survive. 

Can Cain defeat the tyranids and survive the deadly intentions of their dark allies? 

Only time can tell!

A Ciaphas Cain audio drama by Sandy Mitchell. Performed by Jonathan Keeble, Harriet Kershaw, Angus King and Toby Longworth. Directed by Christian Dunn. Music composed by Jamie Robertson.

Lars

The book is fun, however way too short and too simple. I did enjoy it.

Worthy of a HERO OF THE IMPERIUM

While relatively brief, it's an entertaining bit of fun, especially for Ciaphas Cain fans. Very well done by a great cast, I only wish they'd do a full length story.

short but sweet

love the humor, very well made and witty. i'd recommend just paying for it as the credit wouldn't make sense to use.

writing a review is not optional when you require 15 words minimum audible. book is good, very short but thats to be expected, is part of the astra militarun audio collection so buy yhat instead to get this and more stuff if you have credits

Classic Cain.

Our beloved Commissar always delivers. Vicious enemy, dashing hero, loyal sidekick, and sarcasm abounds!

Good enjoyable premise but far to short.

a well acted short tale which builds interest but end far to quickly for any fan of the series.

Fast, exciting adventure.

I typically listen to audible at 2x speed but this book went so quick I slowed it down to 1.10. Overall, short and sweet. The combat descriptions and experiences make you feel like you are there seeing it firsthand.
