I'm not Gav's biggest fan, but this is solid work - probably his best, actually, but I haven't read Lorgar. 

I have to say I am not surprised at the lack of spoilers, because there is little to spoil and much to be discussed, since the book -just like the words of the Dark Oracle himself- is quite open to interpretation.

This is not a linear story, but an episodic narration illustrating the character of Luther and the descent of the Dark Angels from the First Legion to the Unforgiven.

I would definitely recommend it to my fellow Dark Angels fans.

 

Now, my main takeaways/nuggets of information under spoilers:

Pleasantly encouraged by all the positive response to this I'm seeing here. The Caliban parts of Angels of Caliban were by far my favourite bits of that book (which was especially surprising given how dull I found them previously), so I'm hoping for more of that quality.

Perfect, this is a bit more what I was looking for. Thanks!

Looks like the hardcover of this comes out at the start of March. Probably picking that up.
