The Outcast Dead is Kindle McNeill is one of my favorite authors in the BL stable. I like his HH stuff, and I also enjoy his current timeline works, especially the Ultramarines' series. That being said, looking back, every entry of his into the HH has been a great book. False Gods rocked my world because it was in that first amazing trilogy and it involved the tragic fall of Horus. Fulgrim, Mechanicum, and Thousand Sons were all detailed introductions into Legions and parts of the Imperium that were really never delved into too deeply beyond a codex or two so they were all impressive. All that gave me cause for great excitement when I got my greedy little hands on the Outcast Dead.I really enjoyed the Outcast Dead as a whole, and as a part of the larger tapestry of the HH. However, it took a REALLY long time to get going, in fact it was not until almost exactly at the halfway point did the action start. However, once it starts, holy crap, I could not put it down. I am a father of 3, I get no sleep, and have little time to myself to read, in fact that time comes at the end of my day for as long as I can stay awake...I went from the halfway mark to the end in one sitting last night. Once the Outcast Dead get involved it is a rock and roll ride until the climactic battle. I wish this book had another 100 to 150 pages to really give the reader a chance to get into the individual Space Marines who made up the OD, because they were interesting, but only in a broad sweeping general character way. I think the Marines in Battle for the Abyss got a better treatment of character development. Of course Swallow did not have to deal with the half of the book that explained the inner workings of the psykers of earth. I also wish OD did not end with an ambiguous cliff hanger, not knowing if or when that story thread will be picked up again in this series is a little frustrating. OD is a solid to exciting read. Not as powerful as McNeill's last entry the Thousand Sons, but let's face it, that book knocked your balls into the dirt and smiled while it did it. .

Good Kindle The Outcast Dead I'd probably give it 4.5. The story was interesting and many of the characters were really well developed. There were a lot of editing issues that took me out of the book hence the deduction.
