I would love to post a bit more. I have very fond memories of posting here earlier this decade, and I haven't found another place that lives up to it: /tg/ is too anti-BL and the r/40klore community prefer to digest and discuss summaries and wiki entries than read anything, largely. What's happened to Angel of Blood, COTE and good old Lord of the Night praising every book under the sun?

I'm currently rereading Helsreach, just polished off Spear of the Emperor - and will be enjoying the Fabius Bile books (that seem to be excellent based on reviews) later this month. I put the Solar War down because I wasn't happy with the death of a certain White Scar, the constantly-changing perspective (like, changing perspective is great, but not half-a-dozen times within a single chapter, c'mon), the plot-device-y way Horus teleports his fleet into Terra's orbit and, perhaps, how silly the scale of the Horus Heresy has become. We have various Legions mass-producing Astartes by the thousands to be thrown into the meatgrinder without much consequence. From 10k-sized Legions, to 100k-sized Legions to 'there are as many Space Marines as the plot demands,' - sorry, not for me. In the Master of Mankind, every Custodes death felt like a irreplaceable loss; and while Astartes aren't Custodes, the ease with which Horus and his lieutenants throw away lives and resources doesn't gel with the rest of the IP, and the whole thing reminds me how the Horus Heresy (series) has run away with itself and become its own beast entirely. I much, much prefer 40k works for their nuances and subtleties and better handling of themes and characters...

I am still hanging in there and always have at least one 40K book on the go. I am currently reading the hardback "War of the Fang."
I have actually enjoyed this book and lots of plots.

There are a limited number of Wolves in the Fang so they are not being wasted in large numbers!
