Storm of Iron is by Graham McNeil. He is hit or miss for me, this is one of his hits.
As far as Black Library fiction goes, Storm of Iron is top tier.

Are they just augmented more then your typical CSM?
They are a very tech-based Siege-type of Legion. Their personality are like iron, and they consider Chaos as a weapon or just a tool rather than a deity that you worship.

That actually sounds like how I would use Chaos, personally. So I think they might be the better of the warbands.

Out of the orignal Legions, I would consider them to be one of the better unified under Perturabo (their Primarch). The Word Bearers are up there as well.

Perturabo? Yeah. He became a daemon prince after the Iron Cage. Lorgar, Mortarion, Magnus, Angron and Fulgrim are all daemon princes too and therefore immortal. Curze is dead. Alpharius and Omegon are anyone's guess as is their way. Horus is more dead than anything else that's ever existed I'd say.

I do need another recommendation.

I just finished the second Word Bearers novel, Dark Apostle.

I really want to read about Loken again. I already read the short story about him, but I am thinking of reading Vengeful Spirit. However, I haven't read book 5-28. Is it going to mess things up, even though it's very clear in other books what happens at the end of Horus' Crusade?

Or should i just finish the series? I have been doing this recently. Reading the first couple books then hopping to a new book, than going back and finishing up.

The clone is dead, but was never really Horus. Horus himself is beyond dead, he was completely obliterated and his very warp signature erased.

I always recommend reading the entire series, and in order. But others will say you don't need to and they aren't entirely wrong. Some will reference events and characters of earlier novels, and you just won't get these references or plots if you haven't read the previous novels.
