Two centuries ago, the Imperium of Man and the upstart Tau Empire fought to a standstill in the Damocles Gulf.
Now, as the 41st millennium draws to a close, the tau have returned. As the world of Agrellan falls under attack, the White Scars and Raven Guard rush to its defence, but with the skilled Commander Shadowsun leading the alien forces, the Space Marines and their allies are hard pressed. Kor'sarro Khan, Huntmaster of the White Scars, swears that he will win the day in the most direct way possible - by taking Shadowsun's head.

Decent, if at some times generic
This audiobook showed an interesting portrayal of the Tau Empire. It focusses partly on how the Imperium manages to frequently lose systems to the far younger Tau Empire and features moments of characterful, interesting portrayal of Space Marines, something that many authors struggle with. One or two of the short stories though, focus (in my opinion) too heavily on combat and lack some of the story and character development found in the others.
