Dunno if it fits but Dark Imperium followed by Plague War follow the main leader of the Imperium. They're quite recent (2017 and 2018) and canonically establish the state of the universe in the 8th edition soft reboot.Hey Warhammer fans! I found this thread in the community spotlight and then fell into a rabbit hole of reading 40k stuff on a wiki. I have read a little about all the species and the warp and stuff.
I'd like to read some of the novels now. I've read in a few places that people seem to recommend the Eisenhorn series to start with, which I downloaded the sample of and started on Kindle. But I wanted to ask here for a specific recommendation. I'm really interested in the big picture universe. I love a good character, but I don't know that I want to read a really small and intimate story. I would love if I could read something that follows a character on a big journey or various journeys across the universe. I want descriptions of the cool metal stuff like warp jumps, daemon encounters, battles with Tyranids and Necrons, Space Marines wrecking shop. You know what I mean? A perfect example of that was Halo: The Fall of Reach by Eric Nylund. Is there a good book or series like this for me to start with? I want to see the grim dark world!
Thanks in advance for any recommendations!
They're decently written, (don't hold me to that, tastes may vary) though obviously intended to advertise the new kits. But they will get you up to date on current lore so you can branch out from there.
