For starting, Read Horus Hersey.. forgot to mention that one lol.

The Horus Hersey books starts out before Horus betrays the Emperor and splits the Imperium, so it's a great series to start with.

Gaunts Ghosts is awesome, i've only read First and Only so far (Shitty library), but i already love it.

The Ultramarine series is awesome.

yea i really liked ultramarines, but the first 40k book i read was Let the Galazy Burn, it's a bunch of short stories that kinda get you into it i guess, then the second one i read was Eisenhorn, and that was freaking amazing! That's the one book i recommend to anyone, it's really sweet

So Horus Rising was kind of a good book, so I guess I've found another series of books thats going to endanger my wallet.
