YES! A resurrection of this thread, which was always useful.

I just started Ian McEwan's Sweet Tooth. Finished David Haynes' Black Pine Creek recently, which was top-notch horror, delving into the dark side of humanity.

The Flight of the Eisenstein by James Swallow

I've said before that I'm a huge fan of the 40K universe, and in particular enjoying the Horus Heresy series - well this has to be the best book in the series so far! It's well written and conveys the bleakness of the world well, and more than that acts as a kind of template for what I enjoy about the setting so much.

The astartes continue as superhuman heroes, but against foes just as capable, if not more so. The story tells of a lone frigate trying to warn Terra of Horus' treachery. The action is desperate and while Nurgle is my least favourite of the Chaos pantheon, his influence is used to devastating effect. This is match with the evolution of the cult worshipping the Emperor as a divine being.

I also enjoyed the wider take on characters beyond the marines - the Sisters in particular are formidable and I'm looking forward to learning more about them. Overall this was a cracking read.
