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.

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.

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.

Better and Better

The chosen narrators always bring a smile to my face with their accents and whit. Wonderfully read. Splendidly written. Not necessarily predictable yet confidently familiar.

Review

((spoilers))

this particular story in the series, I feel really picks up in the later half, it seems to all come together once he starts to gain a little army.

these books pretty much never failed to be a delight, at least not so far, and although it had slow moments this one really give you a feel for the characters younger years and the naivety of youth.

all in all it's a pretty good story and I look forward to reading the rest of the series 👍

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.
