When the world of Quadravidia comes under attack by the insidious tau, only one man can defeat the aliens and save the planet in the Emperor’s name: the legendary Hero of the Imperium, Commissar Ciaphas Cain. When the aliens call for a ceasefire, Cain expects the worst, and his fears are answered in the form of the dread menace of the tyranids. As a hive fleet approaches Quadravidia, Cain must try to forge an alliance between the Imperium and the tau – but can he truly trust the inscrutable xenos?
Not the best work by one of the best authors.
I absolutely recommend any and all books that pertain to Commissar Cain. This one unfortunately had a little too much invested in an obvious plot. I was disappointed but still think it’s worth the read. The cover is also completely misleading.
