Fire Caste was superb a real surprise
Imperial Glory one of the best imperial guard novels
Cadian Blood another good imperial guard novel
The Ciaphas Cain novels are brilliant

Couldn't agree more, especially on Fire Caste and Imperial Glory.

I would recommend:
Thousand Sons
Battle for the Fang
Emperors Gift

Also just read The Unremembered Empire which is a good read!

Thanks for all the replies just read fire caste enjoyed but grim to say the least. Looking for something a bit more lighthearted now..
My favourite novels have been
The Emperor's Gift
Night Lords (Novel Series)
Word Bearers (Novel Series)
Ultramarines (Novel Series)
Ciaphas Cain (Novel Series)
Cadian Blood
Yarrick chains golgotha


Would anyone recommend these?
The Macharian Crusade
Baneblade
Straken
Imperial Glory
Commisaar
Yarrick: Imperial Creed (how does this tie in with chains golgotha)
Relentless
Imperial Glory

I'm reading Imperial Glory now.
It's glorious - awesome characters and story. More i read, more it impresses me.




What? Boo is outraged! See his fury! It's small, so look close. Trust me, it's there.

It's a brilliant read really enjoyed one of the best Imperial Guard novels. The author said on his Facebook page he was going to write a short based on the same characters. It was either going to be set during or before the story I can't remember which off hand.
