(Not sure if this in the right forum)
Ive recently started reading the black library warhammer books. My favorite books so far have been Mark of Chaos by Anthony Reynolds and Inheritance by Steven Saville.
Can you guys recommend any other black library books for me to read, preferably ones with lots of action.
I used to be superbock, if anyone cares.
yes yes yes I can Ciphias Cain novels by Sandy Mitchell are my favourite books so far. He has 5 books now i think (havent got the latest one...grumble) but each book is exciting, whitty and has a good pace to it.
Gotrex and Felix of course, by stephen King. Just a good book.
Dan Abbnets Gaunts ghost series for some intellegent writing for guard that will keep you reading to the end.
Finally graham McNeil's ultramarines series (starting with nightbringer) for some good ol' fashion smash and grab action.
A prisoner of war is a man that tries to kill you and fails, and then asks that you not to kill him.
Funnily enough, I just got done putting together a list of all the books I could find on Warhammer 40k.
Warhammer 40k Book List
Dan Abnett is one of my favorite authors from the Black Library, since he manages to make the violence of war leap off the pages at you. I highly recommend the "Gaunt's Ghost" series, along with the Cain series that was mentioned earlier.
Give me a day or so, and I'll have another category on there for just the normal Warhammer.
P.S. - Yes, this is an (AFF) link; however it was either making something like this or creating a hyperlink to every individual book out there. I got tired of not being able to find a comprehensive list out there, so I made one myself. Took about four hours of searching and clicking, but there are literally dozens of books out there that I had never read. Very cool and exciting stuff for any 40k readers.

Definitely recommend the Gaunt's Ghosts series. I have recently read the first four and can hardly put them down. Really good. Make me itch to play guard.
I personally enjoy the Malus Darkblade books
Thanks to the person who neg repped me for the above post :C
I am a little confused as to why though. ;?
Dan Abnett all the way for me like the above posts have said. Double Eagle I found an interesting one off novel about the fighter planes and bombers of 40K. Also for 40K I highly recommend the Eisenhorn series and Ravenor as well as the ultramarines trilogy (the one also mentioned in an above post).
For fantasy Gotrek & Felix are really good. I also loved the collection called "The Ambassador Chronicles" ("The Ambassador" and "Ursun's Teeth" together).
At the end of the day I don't think I've ever read a Warhammer book I didn't like. A good option IMO is to go for these omnibuses that are being brought out. They are such a money saver and you can go straight from finishing one novel to starting the next in the series.

Eisenhorn by Abnett is an obvious recommendation. Lord of the Night is also very good, and Brothers of the Snake (also Abnett) and Fifteen Hours.
I've just started reading Crossfire, by Matthew Farrer, thats ok so far, especially if you want a change from Space Marines or IG from fighting against all odds.

Storm of Iron is quite nice, and the Horus Heresy series is pretty good as well. On the Fantasy side, try and pick up The Vampire Genevieve. It's quite a good series. Let's see...I've been told that Guardians of the Forest was quite good too, though I haven't actually picked it up yet. If you have some extra money, you might want to consider some of the background books like Liber Chaotica and Liber Necris, as they're a really interesting read, assuming that they're still in print, that is. I know Xenology has finished its run at the moment (unfortunately).
