Publisher's Summary

Audiobook four of the Ciaphas Cain series.

Listen to it because:

It's a tale of Cain alone (well, except for Jurgen, but he hardly counts), surrounded by enemies and desperate for a good cup of tanna tea....

The story:

Once again, reluctant hero Commissar Cain is catapulted into glory in the fourth instalment of this tremendously popular series. Escaping from a disastrous space battle, the commissar and his malodorous sidekick Jurgen crash-land behind enemy lines. Even the sly Cain can't avoid a straight fight this time, as the only way out is to round up what few troops they can find and fight their way back to safety. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of barbaric alien orks stand in their way.

Another stellar performance

this series is so grand, a thrill ride of adventure and full of Cains sardonic humor. 10/10
I can't wait till the next audio book in the series.

Now to wait for the next one.

I love the Cain series, my favorite of the 40k series. They are all excellent books and listens. A great starting place for anyone interested in the universe too.

Felicia!!!

This book is fantastic fun. Im glad to finally reach Cains first meeting with Felicia who shows up in other adventures. The first battle for Perlia being such a turning point in Cains career makes this a must read.

Pulp scifi at its best

Sandy Mitchell knows how to write a pulp story as well as the best, and the comissar Cain series is always a great show of it. the voice acting in this series is also truly top notch, like one of the better audio dramas available.

If you are going to have multiple readers, do not have a male voice reading for female characters.

You Ork to get this

Another strong entry in the Ciaphas Cain series and definitely worth the credit. If I have to nitpick, it would be that Amberly Vail has too small a part. Penelope Rawlins is a great voice actor and I would have enjoyed listening to more of her work.

Great

The book itself and the narration is great but it hasn’t been grouped properly with the other books in the series- all the others have Series: Ciaphas Cain: Warhammer 40,000.

Easy read and funny

The Ciaphas Cain books are excellent. They are easy to read, funny and puts the grime dark of the 40K universe in to a more human format of people just getting on with making the best of it.

Another great Cain audio book 'nuff said

I love these series of books by Sandy Mitchell, painting a more realistic approach to the grim and dark universe of 40k. A light dusting of humour to keep it entertaining. Regarding the audio book, masterfully read, with each character being brought to life by the different narrators.

A must read for any 40k of sci-fi lovers out there. keep them coming

The narrative team have outdone themselves once again. Top Quality narration, Top Quality story. I can't wait for the next in the series to be released.

everything and everyone was great except for the excerpt Joe Jameson read. for a retired pdf solider Jameson's voice is too young it just sounded like a teen trying to put on an adult voice.

grim dark with a laugh

in 40k it is great that there is some that can look at the universe and use sarcasm to put a positive spin on it
two of the most stright laced uptight jobs can make light of the universe

Amberley and her annoying interruptions

The first book in this series, having Amberley pop in to narrate occasionally was entertaining and made sense because she was actually involved in the story. I'm listening to this one at work, and I can't help but legitimately yell "oh shuuut up" everytime she spoke, the stories alright besides that.

you just can't hate Cain...

God every Cain story I listen to just has me glued to my seat, giggling away at his antics.... if GW is looking for ideas for a Warhammer+ show I would suggest a Cain inspired live action/cartoon..... possibly my favourite Cain story to date will definitely listen again.

Favourite Cain Story with a Great Cast

This is my favourite Cain story, the cast is great and provide a good and welcome variety - not quite a full audio drama, but still better than a single narrator in bringing the story and characters to life.
