Brother Chorster, if you want SM flavor, Brotherhood of the Snake is awesome.
If you want Inquisition flavor: Eisenhorn omnibus and/or Ravenor omnibus

If you want IG flavor: the whole Gaunt's Ghosts series is awesome.

If you want aerial combat: Double Eagle

All these are by Dan Abnett and they are all outstanding Smile

Thanks Brother Rivan for the detailed list. After looking up the ones about the Inquisition, I think I'm going to start with the Ravenor and Eisenhorn Omnibus'. Smile

I just finished Know No Fear too. It was awesome!

Loved the "theoretical...practical..." mindset of the Ultramarines Razz

I agree that the novel was great. I think it was a little difficult to get into at first, but is picked up quickly and kept the action coming!

I know that many people do not like the Ultramarines but I still have a place for them in my heart Embarassed
They really are a strong Chapter. I was impressed that they survived the Hive Fleet attack on Macragge, now that I know about this aswell....... Now I have a whole new level of respect for them.

I am reading Blood Reaver now Twisted Evil

Sacrifice is not bad, it definitely provides you with a different perspective on the GKs. I would argue that it is even a little bit of a darker perspective than most people have of them Twisted Evil

I mentioned The Emperor's Gift novel on the previous page of this thread and posted a link if anyone is interested:http://www.blacklibrary.com/all-products/emperors-gift.html
I can hardly wait bounce

The main character is Hyperion (his origin is tied to one of the characters mentioned in the Ravenor series) and the timeline of the story involves Armageddon and the Space Wolves.

I finished the book and I'm BLOWN AWAY!!!! Best GK novel ever for me.

Not sure everyone will like it because it is nothing you would expect from the GK novels we've read before. I'm not going to spoil it for anyone and will eagerly await everybody else's opinion/feedback.

Also, this is how good the author is...after reading the book, not only did I get even more inspired about my Grey Knights, but it also really made me want to play Space Wolves Very Happy
