The ravaged continent of Genabackis has given birth to a terrifying new empire: the Pannion Domin. Like a tide of corrupted blood, it seethes across the land, devouring all. In its path stands an uneasy alliance: Onearm's army and Whiskeyjack's Bridgeburners alongside their enemies of old--the forces of the Warlord Caladan Brood, Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii mages, and the Rhivi people of the plains.
But ancient undead clans are also gathering; the T'lan Imass have risen. For it would seem something altogether darker and more malign threatens this world. Rumors abound that the Crippled God is now unchained and intent on a terrible revenge.
Marking the return of many characters from Gardens of the Moon and introducing a host of remarkable new players, Memories of Ice is both a momentous new chapter in Steven Erikson's magnificent epic fantasy and a triumph of storytelling.

Battle dominates the gripping third installment of Canadian Erikson's projected 10-volume series (Gardens of the Moon, etc.), set in the land of Malazan and featuring a host of gods, grunt soldiers, wizards and undead. Ganoes Paran is now captain of the Bridgeburners, part of Dujek Onearm's army that's trying to fight off the vile forces of the Pannion Domin. The author vividly details the horrors of hand-to-hand combat along with the cannibalistic tendencies of the Tenescowri (or peasant) rabble that fight for the Pannion Domin. The most intriguing new character is Itkovian, a commander of the mercenary Grey Swords who finds, after the battle of Capustan, that his god has deserted him. For a giant fantasy series, this is tightly written, with no repetitious dialogue or exposition. Erikson ranks near the top of the epic fantasy pantheon.

4th time I've read book, still breaks my heart with sadness and joy.
Fantastic story telling/writing.
It appears the proper book is there.
Wonderful story...shoot the editor
I kid you not, character names misspelled and/or entirely wrong. My favorite was a character named "Gruntle" who was referred to as "Grande" in a dozen or more places throughout the book. Literally, grammar and spelling errors on nearly every page - periods missing between sentences, strange hyphenating, and lots of issues. This book most have been very hastily published. However, if you can tolerate the sloppy editing, the story is totally epic. This series is shaping up to be one of my all time favorite fantasy series!
