Read the books from not the horus heresy. I don't remember what they are called, Blood Angels something something, but a blood angel is corrupted and everyone thinks he is the reincarnation of Sanguinius. It's good.

Another somewhat problematic point is that this title contains multiple allusions to previous events that have taken place in previous titles. The point here is that unless you have read a number of the previous Horus Heresy volumes (there are more than four that are alluded to), you might have some problems in understanding what is going on, or why such and such a feature or planet is important. However, if you have read these titles (as was my case), you will be even more convinced that this book is essentially a filler where little new happens and with little originality in it.
Even the characterisation of the Primarchs was mostly unoriginal, although not always uninteresting. Lion is, as usual, rigid in his certainties and rash in his actions. Guilliman is increasingly subject to doubting his own judgment while Sanguinius the Angel – perhaps the most interesting of the three in this volume – ranges from fatalism tinged with despair, since he knows his own fate and knows how much his legion will have to suffer from it, to glimmers of hope as he seems to see a way to chaet his destiny.
To be fair, however, I did find some interesting features as well. One was the interactions between Sanguinius and his imprisoned brother Konrad Curze (the Primarch of the Night Lords) as both have inherited part of the Emperor’s gift (or curse) of foresight and have glimpses of the future, and of their demise in particular. Another is the origins of the Black Rage which will plague the Blood Angels once their Primarch is no more.
The features that I found interesting were however simply not enough to make this book into a good read. As a result, I could not help rating it two stars and cannot pretend that I liked it.
Angels of Caliban (Book 38)
As a stand alone book it has little appeal in my opinion, you really need to have read the a lot of the series to get the most out of this novel. The writing is good in places, nothing amazing, but it mostly feels functional, a bit vanilla, a bit repetitive. The story itself is good though, nothing ground breaking, but the author creates an interesting and exciting plot even though fans of 40k know who it will ultimately end. The Pilgrim is a nice addition to the tale, the Primarchs are well done, they are decisive and in the heart of the action. We learn quite a bit about Sanguinius as he struggles with his visions and his genetic flaw. Some of the situations the heroes find themselves in are a little silly, but this is a sci-fi novel in the 30k setting, so personally I can live with that. I think the battles are well done, nothing over the top, just right.
It's not the best in the series but it is along way from the worst. It is a sort of filler, but it is a lot better than it's predecessor in this particular story arc and the Primarchs are done so much better, it's a big relief. It does have it's flaws and niggles but the overall plot saves it I think. It doesn't move the series on by a massive amount, but does explain a few things such as why certain legions were or were not on Terra at the end. I liked reading it. Four stars from me.
As he says, just a grind of the 3 legions overcoming increasingly ludicrous obstacles that really would have killed them, losing ships and troops constantly yet somehow never running out. Oh yes, and lots of Sanguinius angst about whether the future is set or not. **spoiler**
Not one of the better ones- save your money and skip ahead in the series.
