By the way things are looking, I might shift my vote towards Angel Exterminatus soon...

I went for TFH. It was just a thrilling page turning read with some brilliant characters.

Honourable mentions too: know no fear, fulgrim, horus rising & a thousand sons.

Nod has to go to Know No Fear, though honourable mention also has to be made to Legion

Vote to A Thousand Sons due to my love of the Thousand Sons themselves and the Egyptian link they share.

Very close runners up in the form of Legion, Fulgrim, Horus Rising and Mechanicum.

Speaking of Mechanicum I am very surprised it has recieved no votes at all. Absolutely amazing book in my opinion although I see it reached a lot of people's shortlists which pleases me a bit.

Then again I would rate Brotherhood of the Storm as number 1 if I could mainly cause it's a White Scars novel (my favourite legion) and the fact they have moved away from them simply being Mongols in space.

I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

My favorite has been Fulgrim for a really long time, but Ive also fallen deeply in love with ATS and TFH. PS has some good pointers, but it was dreadful for me to read. If Prince of Crows had been a fullfledged novel (like I hope Nightfall will be) then that would have been an unbeatable novel by far.

Fulgrim however lost some of its sadness with Reflection crack'd and Ive heard many negative bits about Angel Exterminatus. So I will go with The First Heretic and HM the rest already mentioned.

Best short is The Last Church by far.

Number 1 for me has to be Prospero Burns for the level of writing that was on display was phenominal. Though Angel Exterminatus, A Thousand Sons, Know no Fear and Legion deserve honourable mentions.

thousand sons fanboy so my vote is no surprise, mcneil aced it.

Know no fear was epic as well, probably the better read, but the heart wants what it wants

Fulgrim without a moment's hesitation. For me it is the best "why I turned" primarch story in the heresy. Legion is probably the only other book I considered putting a vote for. Not that I don't like a lot of the other book, I just see those two way ahead.
