Default What to read?

This is a two part question, I am yet to read Angel Exterminatus or Betrayer. So far in the HH series I have been very disappointed with the fall to chaos of most primarchs. Will these novels change that for me?

Part 2. I have solely read HH to date and am looking to branch out. What novels would you suggest? I am mainly a fan of space marine stuff, thousand sons however if material is good enough I wouldn't mind reading other stuff.

Do not disallusion yourself brothers, today we die, our bodies broken and our souls shattered, we will be remembered as corpses on a battlefield.Raise hell my brothers for one day our great Father will hear of our struggle, and he will be honoured to call us his Sons. In death our Glory shall become eternal.' Karik Farron, 1st Lord of the Dark Scorchers at the Fall of Kempar.

The Space Marine Battles books. I've read Fall of Damnos and Battle of the Fang, and liked both a lot. Reading The Hunt for Voldorius now, and liking it so far.

Plenty of Space Marine omnibuses out there. I loved the Grey Knights. Souldrinkers is also good. Blood Angels is good, despite what many here will say. Heh. Not overly complicated, but the main character is the definition of courage, honor, and all that crap. Plus Mephiston shows up briefly. Those are all I've read of SM omnibuses so far.

Eisenhorn and Ravenor are Inquisitors. Their omnibuses are my favorite BL things so far. Not huge battles, but some powerful characters sometimes square off. Great intrigue. And those nasty Chaos guys have really interesting plans, devices, etc.

If you expect Angel Exterminatus focusing only on the Iron Warriors/Perturabo you will be greatly disappointed. Otherwise it is a very good book and adds very much to the heresey/40k fluff!

Betrayer is the ADB at his best. Nothing more to say, it is just awesome.

I also agree that, if you're tired of the hh read a Space Marine Battles book. While i found hunt for Voldorius awful, the upcoming Death of Antagonis is worth reading!

I am not tired of the HH just don't come out that fast haha. I have just found with the previous primarchs that the fall to chaos isn't very well written. I could understand why Magnus acted like he did, but the others not so much. I am upset that I am expected to believe Lorgar turned because he was a petulant child, Horus was tricked etc.... All very two dimensional reading in my opinion. I am expected to believe these super beings with ridiculous intelligence levels are all that pathetic.
