Ah, the trials and tribulations of the venerable Captain Uriel Ventris! Awesome stuff. Hurry up and read, cause' next in the series is "The Killing Ground", followed by "Courage and Honor". I believe that yet another Ultramarines title has surfaced in hardcover as well.
I finished WH40K Fallen Angels and started on Warriors: Omen of the Stars-"The fourth apprentice" since it FINALLY came out in paperback. And Winds of Dune sits patiently on my shelf waiting for me to finish.

I strongly recommend the Blood Angel Omnibus as an introduction to the books. The author paints a wonderful picture. Most of the space marine books are very well written.
Haven't read anything but the Space Marine stories, so you're on you're own if you want to get into the Imperial Guard or Inquisition.
On a related note I've moved into reading the Blood Ravens Omnibus. So far I'm not as interested in it than I was the others, perhaps it's because it has to follow the game? Dunno yet.

I'll be starting Fallen Angels tonight!
