Let's just say there is a reason why none of the 40K ones have reviews here or anyone talking about them.

edit- did not see WoI and Pariah on the list. Both those books, the latter being excellent, are very good reads.

Death of Antagonis is a bit weird at the start but gets better IMO, though a chunk of the plotline comes about a bit bluntly.

I stopped reading Architect of Fate about half-way through the second story.

Wrath of Iron is pretty good, IMO. I would recommend the Ultramarines series and Helsreach (If it is a little fast paced without going into too much detail at the start).

I like Pariah, just finished it actually, now having to wait for the other 2 books to come out. But if you are going to read it you need to read the Eisenhorn omnibus and the Ravenor omnibus. Which both are fantastic. Also would recommend the Soul Drinker Omnibus as well.

I really like Pariah but as I've read the Eisenhorn/Ravenor trilogy's it may have helped with the understanding.

The First Heretic, Thousand Sons and Horus Rising are great novels to get if you want to start on the Horus Heresy series.

I want to say reading those series made it MORE confusing. At least for 95% of the novel.

"Is this the past? The future? Some sort of alternate universe?" Then it's all explained.

But isn't that the point? I enjoyed being confused. It was like trying to solve a riddle!

All Abnett does is give you a square hole with a circle peg, though. I don't think there was any way to tell ahead of time how it worked out. Then again I haven't reread it, so maybe all the signs were there?

I can understand why many didnt like it. As I said in another thread about it, I gave up trying to work it out and just enjoyed the ride through Queen Mab. The answer presented itself to me by the end.
