Too short

The voice acting was fine. The hyper masculinity of a WH40K novel embodied, although an odd choice of the narrator to provide a different voice for the "memoir" version of themselves.

However, the story was far too short to be worth the asking price. Barely an hour long, it felt like two episodes of a particularly well done podcast. Were the series to continue in 30 minutes episodes every month, I would happily subscribe at $3-$5pcm, but this really feels like a wasted Audible credit.

Points for Audio Drama!

I enjoyed this thoroughly even though it is more expensive per unit time than other 40k titles. I very much approve of the new format and the idea of writing specifically for audio. Also, a good choice to use Cain as the initial source material. I'll be keeping an eye out for more in the future.
