Default Are there any major / extremely good BL books that I don't have?

I hope this doesn't seem like a selfish request but I live in a country lacking any GW Shops / English book shops and so I get all my books either online or I buy them when I'm in England. The problem being that I sometimes miss major BL releases and discover them only years later (I finished Dan Abnett - Salvations Reach yesterday but am actually a huge Gaunt's Ghosts fan... I just missed the book completely )

So here's my book collection, are some your guys must reads / favorite books missing here? My preferences are Imperial Guard and Inquisitor stories but I basically read any good books. Just trying to get some new books since I don't have anything to read currently.

Thanks for the help

I don't see any of Chris Wraight's SW novels in there. Battle for the Fang is one of the few good SM Battles novels, and Blood of Asaheim and Stormcaller, while containing a few blatant fluff fuck ups, are very good.

I also didn't notice John French's two Ahriman novels. Great books.

The Talon of Horus!

If you liked Priests of Mars you should continue with Lords of Mars and Gods of Mars. I have not read the last book myself yet (waiting for the paperback), but I think people really liked it.

I can only comment on books concerning Chaos, But I agree with @Khorne's Fist that the Ahriman books are really good. Highly recommended.

Beyond that I would look into the Wordbearers Trilogy which I didn't spot. They are excellent books as well.

And lastly, while I'm still reading it currently myself, @Sev is right about Talon of Horus. It's SERIOUSLY good so far

Missing the Talon of Horus?? I would say it is a must read for any BL fan now.

The rest of the Gaunts Ghosts novels, you seem to be missing The Saint omnibus, which is odd, as you have The Lost. Have you lost it, or at least read the four novels contained with The Saint arc? Otherwise that would be very confusing. Also Salvations Reach, which comes after Blood Pact.

I quite liked the Sundering triology from the Time Of Legends series. Malekith, Shadow King and Caledor.

Battle of the Fang has been mentioned, as has Ahriman.

Titanicus, is also quite a good read, you seem to like Abnett, so would enjoy it no doubt.

I dont see the recent dark eldar trillogy. Its really one of the top warhammer 40k reads, bringing the druchii to cruel and macable life.

Path of the Renegade, Incubus and Archon.

Edit: Its out in an omnibus with related shorts.

Fire Caste by Peter Fehevari. THE very best Imperial Guard story, better than Gaunt, better than Cain.

I was reading Salvations Reach at the time of the pic and the Saint omnibus is lying around somewhere in my house :p

I would definitely recommend Battle of the Fang aswell. Also Emporers Gift and the Night Lords Trilogy by ADB are awesome books!
