Nightbringer: An Ultramarines Novel (Warhammer 40,000)

Nightbringer: An Ultramarines Novel (Warhammer 40,000) - Graham McNeill Excellent entry. I actually think Ario Barzano, the second lead character, is far more interesting than Uriel Ventris here. Barzano would be great to explore in other books. I'll have to see how Uriel is in the follow up novels. But O'Neill is really in top form here, with strong characterization mixed with the action. I thought this was even stronger than First and Only. Very good use of settings and elements from WH40k
