That's how Dan Abnett's Horus Rising starts. Even though I and every other fan of the 40K setting already knows how the tale ends, Mr Abnett kept me interested with vivid imagery, solid characterization, and intensely descriptive action scenes. As with any excellent piece of Sci-Fi, the book is packed with interesting and exotic locales. The action and scenery are the backdrop and not the primary focus here: The true conflicts are between the novels characters, not between them and their environment. These conflicts are so well depicted, I even developed a grudging respect for the villians. As Abnett demonstrates, even genetically engineered super-heroes will still be human and thus prone to the same pit-falls as we mere mortals.

This has got to be some of the best science fiction I have ever read! I've never played 40k, and have only read a few books that pertain to the universe, but I am hooked on this series from the first book. This is a great start into the history of the future!
