George Mann's Helion Rain
Helion Rain is the latest Black Library audio book. This time, the Raven Guard are fighting Tyranids in defense of the planet Idos. This was a middling audio book, and Mann's newness to the 40k universe definite tells. You could play a drinking game and get pretty hammered were you to have to drink every time he says the words ichor or swathe. Still, despite the repetitive word choices, it is well paced and tells a good story that fleshes out the Raven Guard in a way that hasn't been done much by the Black Library so far.
