Finished this last night. I enjoyed the book but I have to agree with the other posters on the issues. The constant bashing over the head of how awesome the Primaris and their new equipment was tiresome, that and Cawl just being so amazing! :O

So this is the current timeline , how will we tell which books are now in this current timeline? I hope they continue the current story line with G looking for the Death Guard.

So does it give you the story of Cadia and gulliman turning up, or does it leave that to the gathering storm rule books?
As someone who's last 40k reading was Honsou invading Calth in 999.M40 after trolling Ventris for a few years, I'm thoroughly confused how like a moment later girlyman wakes up and there's these brand spanking new marines wandering about the galaxy!

Dark imperium is set post Gathering storm and the indomitus crusade. which is 112 years past the Gathering Storm.. The arrival of the primaris happened offscreen at the indomitus crusade, which i frankly would have loved to see more fleshed out instead of quickly glossed over.

First Guy Haley book I didn't enjoy. Some moments of brightness but otherwise a fairly dull marine book. After the wonder he pulled off with Dante I was pretty disappointed.
There's so much I'm enjoying from BL at the minute probably made this book seem even poorer.
The longer I read BL I realise I like marines in small doses as super heros who appear (briefly) to save the day or in the case of chaos marines ruin someone's day. But can't have a whole book focused on them.
