Default Black library tyranid books?

I'm looking into getting some BL books, and would really like if I could get a good one involving tyranids. Does anyone have some suggestions??

There's Warrior Brood. Bunch of Black Templars fighting off a bunch of Nids. At least, they were for the bit I read of it anyway.

Mantis Warriors then Deathwatch. It was by C.S. Goto, so it had fanboyism, but it was a great read all in all. Warriors of Ultramar was good too. The Ciaphas Cain book Duty Calls is too I think.

Do not get C.S. Goto's book. They suck honestly! Yes, Warriors of Ultramar and any Ciaphas Cain novels involving Tyranids are highly recommended

Actually, it was the only good book by Goto.

I enjoyed it! ;D But there's a twist to it, but I won't spoil.

It's ok, not the best but by no means the worst book Iíve read - good background on the Tallarn though. Oh and youíll see the twist coming mile off.

The short story collection Let The Galaxy Burn has some excellent 'Nid stories in it, including "Fall of Malevolion" (a most excellent story and one you should definitely read if you don't already know it).
