Ian C. Esslemont's prequel trilogy takes readers deeper into the politics and intrigue of the New York Times bestselling Malazan Empire.
The first book of the Path to Ascendancy trilogy, Dancer's Lament, focuses on the genesis of the empire and features Dancer, the skilled assassin, who, alongside the mage Kellanved, would found the Malazan empire.

An excellent return to the world of the Bridgeburners and Bonehunters. I think Esselmont has always lived in the shadow of Erikson. The meandering style of both is compelling but does Esselmont no favors. This is his step into the light. This a much more focused and thus, better work. I eagerly await the next installment.
