GW book review!

GW book review**

I was gonna post fav's - but this might be a good thread for some of the GW freshies to get an idea of whats hot and not on the GW bookshelf
[[not to sound smugg, i happen to fall under the categorie of being a 40k freshie]]

Personally [[being a Word Bearers fan]]
my fav would be,
Dark Apostle, by Anthony Reynolds, had a weird kinda dry begining, but then Chaos kicked in and kicked hard! Giving me an inference that this is going to be a series following Marduk
9/10

Another would be,
Rebel Winter, by Steve Parker, his first novel, and did slightly show - but I love a good classic, and this one also gave me the inference that there's going to be a series following the pitdog. [[personal dislike; a little over-use of hokey phrases such as "Throne above!" - I wish theyd just curse like normal dudes]]
7/10

And i'd comment on the awesome Horus Heresy novels, but i'm only on the second one, False Gods - perhaps someone whos up to date with the most recent one could rate the series as a whole

--I know this is all 40k, but I'm not too big in the fantasy, but dont be shy--

I'm a freshie, I read all the Horus Heresy books all were excellent except Descent of Angels.DOA seemed rushed not nearly as good as the rest. The Souldrinkers Omnibus is the one I finished recently and is amazing. I think thread should be stickied so we can read opinions on all the books. I will be picking up Chapter Wars this weekend and would like to grab another book. I could use some suggestions.

I am a big fan of the Gaunts Ghosts (Dan Abnett) series although I think the best by quite a way was Necropolis, the others aren't quite as good for me.

The Ciaphas Cain (Sandy Mitchell) series are also a good read, a little more light hearted and a different style but one I personally really enjoy.

I think my favourite book of all is Double Eagle by Dan Abnett. I love the aerial combat sequences and think the cast is well described.

moved to GW fluff.
Yeah sorry - I was contemplating where to put it, and I was really embarresed when I could edit the title of the thread - but thanks guys for posting, i'm definately gonna take a look at these books once i'm done with False Gods

[[i'm doing a book in between each heresy book just so I dont get obbssesed and cry when Horus dies :cray:]]

My favourite is the only one I have read :p

Gaunts Ghosts First and Only

I havn't finished this book yet, but so far it is absoulutely AMAZING!

And I like how they actually released GW models of the ghosts, including the famous Commisar Ibram Gaunt.
