Anakwanar Gods of Mars is a fantastic book - no spoilers till you read it

Brother Emund Priests of Mars books are great!

welshnick Thanks very much for the ideas,great replies think i will definetly get priests of mars series.

Still unsure how much of the nagash books ill get. I understand the nefreata duology was supposed to be a trilogy,are the books stand alone or does it really feel something is missing as the third books was never released.

Just wondering if its worth getting.

The elven Series is something else entirely.
Then I would go with The Sundering Series by Gav Thorpe

ckcrawford The Great Betrayal Series I assume is the Elven series. That one was pretty awesome. The Talon of Horus is fantastic. In fact, I'm reading The Emperor's Gift... ADB has a tendency more than most to do descent work.

Heresy Series pretty good too.

Vaz In regards to Nagash - read the Trilogy first, before the Neferata duology, before picking up the Nagash trilogy. There are a few other shorts dotted about which concern some of the players in the story, I believe there is a collection on the BL site if you have some spare change, but they're not really that important. The Trilogy and Duology aren't even that important honestly, but it gives you a fantastic background with which you can infer when referring to the Nagash trilogy - Josh Reynolds wrote the Neferata duology, and it's almost certain he'd have read Mike Lee's Trilogy for ideas and ensuring some continuity occured.

In regards to Mike Lee's books, the first one was quite a time-hoppy affair, and you need to pay attention to the dates at the start of the chapters. I think a lot of the criticism of his books came from people too stupid to read that.

Khorne's Fist McNeill has been more miss than hit for me recently, except for the Priests of Mars books. I love them. It's definitely one of the most original series BL have brought out in quite a while. Not your typical bolter porn.

The Darkblade books are also excellent.

Brother Lucian Hrm, Rebirth is supposed to be an entirely new story arch with a new cast.

Could i also ask you about a few audio books as i like listening to them in the car to work. The three below are the only horus novels i havent read.

Damocles
Prospero burns
Overfiend
Angel exterminatus
Outcast dead
