Publisher's 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.

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.

Wish it was narrated by Stephen Perring

I love the story but Stephen Perring's voice is Commissar Cain for me. While Jonathan Keeble is a great narrator his voice is too regal dosen't have the sly/roguish manner cain needs. Worthy of a listen not a credit though so buy it instead.

A well preformed piece with such a great cast and Foley audio I got lost and was sad when it was over. Highly recommend this.

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

Such a shame.

Very over-acted for me. I'd gotten used to Perrings' understated roguish very human performance. I had genuinely enjoyed the previous three audio books. This was replaced by the very inhuman performance of Toby Longworths' clipped baritone Space Marine. I also missed the familiar yap of Jurgen which for some reason was replaced by somebody from the east riding of Yorkshire! It was just generally jarring.

It was also monstrously short for the price but I suppose that's just typical GW grabberery... Won't be listening to the others

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