What you want are these two:

Execution Hour
Shadowpoint
By Gordon Rennie IIRC

Probably the two best books published by BL yet. Horus Rising is damn decent as well, but the above pair are widely regarded as amongst the best of 40k-Universe Fiction. Not least because you get such a lovely view of how the Imperium works. You've every sort of thing you need for a good book:
- Massive spaceships
- Decent characters
- Commissars who are accurate to the general reps of a Commissar, not the BL version
- Adeptus Mechanicus doing cool things
- A nice look at Imperial Governors, the Adeptus Arbites and the Ecclessiarchy
- A downright engaging and compelling story.

Best of the bunch, and far exceed Eisenhorn, the Gaunts Ghosts stuff and Ciaphis Cain.

well i finaly got my order last week, after 2 weeks of waiting and then only said it would take a few days, turns out that my order was delayed becuase wolfblade was out of print but the computers still said it was in stock, so we went to pick it up instead, because of the trouble i got a free 40k quiz book.


i want.....fifteen hours, and i think il get that one you said about xisor, what are the horus books about? is it a story? is it information?

The Eisenhorn trilogy is by the far the best written set of books I've ever seen come out of the Black Library. Simply amazing.

Fire Warrior is a good book when you get past the fact that simon spurrier knows absolutely nothing about 40k gameplay and balance :P
