I think he means Angels of Darkness, a stand-alone Dark Angels novel by Gav Thorpe.

Mine was the first Gotrek and Felix Omnibus, which I was reading again only yesterday. I've since greatly expanded my collection and now have a couple of shelves of BL books.

That first one is still one of my favourites though.

Castle Drachenfels was an awesome read. I rank it as one of my favorite BL books.

The first BL book I read was the Burning Shore. I bought it at the same time as Dead Sky Black Sun, but read it first because it had a Lizardman on the cover.

My first BL book was Grey Knights by Ben Coulter.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

My first BL novel was one of the novels from what is now known as 'the inquisition wars' trilogy.

Whilst I remember it fondly I do recall that the author did not strictly adhere to the source material and the story arc was way to big and had too much impact on the 40k universe compared to the novels we have these days.

Personally, I think it was best left to rest.

Ultramarines omnibus for me. I am huge Tyranids fan and wanted something more obout them than their codex. Someone from Relic forums told me that second book in that omnibus is about nids and so my adventure with BL started.

Horus Rising was the first BL book I ever read, and one of my favorites as well!
