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.

Classic Cain.

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

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.

Packs a punch. A lot of content for 1 hr.

You get Ciaphas Cain, a Death World, Tyranids, and Dark Eldar. There is much to like. It's as fast paced as you would expect and all seamlessly handled. None of the story elements seem abrupt or out of place. Narration is great and sound effects are balanced and blended in nicely. The sound effects are not overpowering and distorted in the way they are in some of the other short stories in this universe.

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