    Description

    In the jungles of Aztlan a deadly war of the shadows is being fought. And the Imperial Guard are losing. The alien t’au, though few in number, greatly outclass the soldiers of the Imperium and are taking a serious toll on their forces. 

    A call for aid is answered by the fearsome Mortifactors Chapter, who come to the world full of grim purpose. Adoni, an unblooded neophyte yet to earn his place, is amongst the war party. As the Mortifactors descend into the jungle vastness, they hunt for a killer, one that will not die easily but that whom Adoni must slay if he is to become part of the Chapter and a Taker of Heads.

    Great work

    Wonderful performance, excellent speaker. The tones and accents gave the characters appreciable life and made them feel more raw and real. It was short, but as long as it needed to be.

    For fans of grittier 40k fare

    While I understand what the author, narrator, and director were going for here, as a Vietnam vet. This chapter, to be fair, is atypical of the Space Marines and really demands this type of story telling. The one HUGE failing, oddly, was the background engineering which causes pieces of dialog to be lost. Also, it provides bits of background with no context which is one of those devices that either works or it doesn't. Here it doesn't. On the plus (and interesting) side, much like Henry Zou's novel "Flesh and Iron", this novel plums blatantly the brutality of War in the 41st millennium. I cannot say I "liked" this novel because it brought back some very strong negative emotions from my time in country, but barring the distracting soundtrack, I appreciate the craftsmanship of both the narrator and writer.

    Meh

    Not bad, but not great either. Voice acting is good, but story just isn’t that exciting.

    Laudable

    I think this book is quite excellent. It gives some insight into a less explored chapter, and builds a fantastic character who I would love to see given an expanded series. St. Martin does a good job pacing the book, and the narrators all read their roles skillfully.

    Enjoyable

    Prefer the audio dramas from BL. The featured chapter rarely gets love despite being successors of GW's posterboys. The battle gives the Tau a horrific quality compared to the Vietcong. Does not skimp on how absolutely brutal the jungle war is.

    Excellent short story

    Mortifactors vs T'au on a Jungle world. This was an awesome listen. Just like the old Imperial Guard books.

    Schwarzenegger in "Predator" meets 40k

    This is definitely performance worth noting! It's a good, quick story that is sure to satisfy.

    Grim.

    Comparatively speaking, I've found the mature themes in this particular story to be far and above the status quo for for what is typical for the Warhammer franchise. Personally, I find it refreshing. Others with more delicate sensibilities would be well advised to avoid this title as 'Taker' has all the brutality a fan can expect from the 40k universe, and then some.
