Default how many books are about Tau?

On the GW site they only have Fear The Alien, which I see on a lot of the armies pages, how much of that book are they in?

I think just one of the stories, and if its the one I'm remembering then they were the antagonists.

There is also the book Firewarrior, a novel of a PS2 game of the same name. As far as books go its not that great (generally regarded as pretty bad), but it does feature the Tau as the protagonists.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

It was on sale at black library live.I'm guessing it will be released as a direct exclusive like Yarrick: Chains of Golgotha,The Masque of Vyle and Flesh Of Cretacia.

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.
