Audio Review 41 // The Kauyon by Andy Smillie


Guess it was too much to do a Xenomorph audiobook this week. But I did complete a Black Library Xeno audiobook (see what I did there). The Kauyon by Andy Smillie is a first for me as it is a Tau story, a faction I know little about and one that I have rarely cared for. But let us dive in and hope this will change my ways. 

Title: The Kauyon

Author: Andy Smillie

Narrator: Toby Longworth

Fluff: Kal'va is a broken warrior, the lone survivor of a pathfinder team. Engaged with human forces, he is consumed with thoughts of revenge. But as he lures the humans into a trap that will lead to their destruction, can he remain true to the principles of his warrior code?

The story is pretty quick which is fine with me, to be honest. It follows the tale of a pathfinder (aka sniper) who is seeking revenge for this fallen squad. We jump between the current story arc and flashbacks, for me, the flashbacks were more interesting. In the flashbacks, we learn about the technology and how they attempted to take down some space marines, which lead to most of the squad's deaths. Whilst in the current timeline the Tau is acting solo attempting to lure an imperial column into an ambush.

Overall a solid listen. It didn't set me a light and I still feel meh about Tau, but for entertainment it was good.

In a similar way to the last one, I would say if you can get it cheap, buy it. But don't go out of your way for this one.
