Default Tau Novels

I searched, but couldn't find an answer. Could I have a list of all of the Tau novels out there and a review to show how good they are?

Firewarrior, its the only one I have ever seen, sory but there justs arent any others.

Firewarrior though can be somewhat interesting but its not well written and well... just not very good. If you like the Tau, then read it. It adds some things to the fluff and is generally in line with the 40k universe, just dont expect it to be a masterpiece, cause its not.

It's awful, that's all I can say.

Tau are mentioned in a few other books, and are the main enemy in Kill Team.

Awful as in lack of vivid vocabulary, terrible grammer and mechanics, or just boring?

Unfocused, rushed/drawn out, unbelievable, corny dialog and (especially towards the middle/end) boring.

Grammar was okay, as far as I can remember.

Instead of just getting the fw. book you could get the game and the book!
And only read as far as you are in the game!
Hmm... I might try that....
Nah, I'm just kidding, but anyways the game is also worth a try.

Would they have it at a library? I'm not about to buy a terrible book.

they don't at mine, i would just get the game, it was at 5 were i got it, its not the greatest games but worth a fiver. you get to shoot stuff, fluff seems to be inline, except that bolters are better than pulse rifles and storm troopers have autoguns for some reason.
