Unprecedented in size and savagery, this maelstrom of fanaticism and bloodlust will embroil the Malazan Empire in one of the bloodiest conflicts it has ever known, shaping destinies and giving birth to legends . . .

Posted For Book 3 In The Series As Well!
This book continues the incredible journey into The Malazan Empire while focusing on different characters for the most part from "Gardens of the Moon”.
Erikson delivers another outstanding novel. If you’re thinking of reading the series, you will be highly rewarded and entertained! My review of book 3 “Memories of Ice” goes into more detail as to why this series of books and this author should be considered as the touchstone for the fantasy genre as it stands today!
What a great story. Start to finish a masterful journey. What an ending! And do many more books to go!
