New Tau Novella out this Month?

March 6, 2013 ·

Just lifted from Faeit 212:-

Shadowsun: Tau Book Right Around the Corner

A Tau novel that is not yet announced is apparently going to be available later this month, and there is a copy of it already on Ebay. Is it possible that this book is going to be released later towards the end of this month, leading the way for a Tau codex release in April?

This is what was found. With a link to the listing.

Braden Campbell SHADOWSUN 1st/HB MINT Warhammer 40K Tau Novella Pre-Release

Jizzlefinger brings you SHADOWSUN by Braden Campbell. Published in 2013 by Black Library. MINT condition, brand new and unread. A nice surprise to find this 128 page Tau Hardback Novella sitting on the table at the 2013 Black Library Live! event. I can't find any other details about this book yet, all I know is it's a pre-release and have found vague mentions of it being out as a general release sometime in March, but have found no mention of it yet on the Black Library website. I'm guessing it will be released as a direct exclusive much like Yarrick : Golgotha Unchained and Flesh Of Cretacia. I'm always happy to combine postage for multiple items.

SHADOWSUN - The Last Of Kirku's Line
Commander Shadowsun, child of the famed Kiru and protege of the legendary Commander Puretide, is destined to lead the next phase of the Tau Empire's expansion... if she can survive the trials before her. Crash-landed on an enemy-held planet, with foes all around and a seemingly impossible mission to complete. Shadowsun is determined to achieve victory, even at the cost of her life. But when she receives a message that tears her world apart, Shadowsun must make a choice unthinkable to most Tau; to abandon her duty for the sake of family, or continue to fight for the Greater Good.

Like the Dark Angels, a novel release seems to herald the coming of a new army.

I have high hopes for the Tau.

The only problem is that I have to get a new army past the girlfriend. And that's going to be a real challenge :(

Just out of interest, what are the novels that feature the Tau?

I have Firewarrior, and I believe Gav Thorpe wrote an IG novel that had the Tau as the enemy.

Are there any others, and indeed are they worth reading (from a Tau point of view)?

One of the Commissar Cain novels involved the Tau, that was pretty good (they had to team up against Tyranids I vaguely recall, it's been a few years). Firewarrior is definitely worth the read, and the Gav THorpe one is Kill Team or the sequel to Kill Team which I can't remember the title of. That was decent, though I remember it more for the handling of the Kroot than the Tau. Those are the only ones I can think of...

No, sorry, not Kill Team, it was the second Last Chancers novel. Still can't think of the title...

I have all of the Cain novels (I think), but I have only read the first three... Looks like I will have to dig them out and check!

Kill Team was the one I couldn't remember, I'll have to try to pick up a copy!

The Cain novel I was thinking of is "For the Emperor", although now I see there's another one "The Greater Good" on BL's website. And actually I was right, it is Kill Team, which is a Last Chancer's novel (had to do a search but it turned up on the BL website)
