pretty good dan abbnett is a pretty darn good comic book writer but he also writes many books my warhammer knowledge is limited to a pc video game i played way back called warhammer dark omen. i know nothing about warhammer 40k. but havent had much trouble following or getting acclimated to book and its setting.
I read the novel a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, although I briefly played/collected the tabletop models casually in my youth I have little interest in the gaming side of warhammer, but I find the lore quite interesting, as you enjoyed Horus Rising I'd recommend Abnett's Gaunts Ghosts and Eisenhorn 40k novels, Abnett has also written a couple of Who novels and audios I think.
I read somewhere that Big Finish is one of the production companies used to record some of the Warhammer audios.
i am well acquainted with dan abnet from his comic book work ive read a lot of his stuff 2 of his graphic audio adaptions and i liked his guardians of the galaxy one i bought the book its adapted from. but this is new territory for me and dan. by this book has so many names its confusing me i think i would do better if i saw them printed. thanks for the reccomendations

The Horus Heresy is, in many ways, the Foundation myths for the 40k universe, and the first five books/audios are the foundations for what is now a FORTY book series. My preferences are for Flight of the Eisenstein (which establish a massive ongoing storyline) and Legion, which introduces a number of important players.
