Hi wondering if anyone can recommend any 40k novels that have come out in the last year. Just read path of the archon and really enjoyed. I prefer a full novel to all the novellas that have come out.

By 40K do you mean 40K only or is Horus Heresy included?

I'd recommend Scars for the HH. As for 40K, I really enjoyed Pariah by Dan Abnett

Hi thanks fot your replies. Ive read all the horus heresy books and am about to start listening to them in audio form as bought the big collection at christmas. I was looking for one or two more 40k specific books before i comitted fully.

Fire caste looks good ill go with that.

I have both lords and preists of mars but was waiting for the third one before starting.Same with Pariah waiting for all three though loooks like that could be a long wait

Regarding Pariah, have you read the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies? If not I would really recommend reading them as otherwise the Bequin trilogy isn't going to be as fulfilling as it could be.

I presume you're a fan of the Dark Eldar/Eldar races, then?

I can't recommend Eldar Prophecy by C. S. Goto enough.

Fire Caste was superb a real surprise
Imperial Glory one of the best imperial guard novels
Cadian Blood another good imperial guard novel
The Ciaphas Cain novels are brilliant

It's a brilliant read really enjoyed one of the best Imperial Guard novels. The author said on his Facebook page he was going to write a short based on the same characters. It was either going to be set during or before the story I can't remember which off hand.
