I've always been a big Horus Heresy Dark Angels fan but I hadn't read any 40k Dark Angels in years.  I didn't remember any of it anyway so I started over on the 40k a few months ago.  I'm pretty confident I haven't missed anything major in my Horus Heresy era DAs but is there anything I've missed on my 40k Dark Angels reading?


I've read the following (well finishing up the Lazarus book):


-Legends of the Dark Angels Omnibus - Angels of Darkness, The Purging of Kadillus, Azrael, Azrael - Protector of Secrets (SS), The Eye of Ezekiel, Dark Vengeance, Easy Prey (SS), Malediction (SS)

-Legacy of Caliban - The Unforgiven, Master of Sanctity, Ravenwing, Short Stories:  Honor of the Third, A Hunt in the Dark, Battle Brothers, Accept no Failure, Holder of the Keys, All Must End.

-Rage of Asmodai (SS)

-The Ascension of Balthasar (SS)


-War of Secrets

-Cypher - Lord of the Fallen

-Luther - First of the Fallen

-Lazarus - Emnity's Edge

-The Lion - Son of the Forest


I may try to pick up the 2nd Hammer and Bolter book for the short story Reparation.  Anything else out there worth reading?
