about

The penultimate book in one of the most original, exciting and acclaimed fantasy series of the new century.

On the Letherii continent the exiled Malazan army commanded by Adjunct Tavore begins its march into the eastern Wastelands, to fight for an unknown cause against an enemy it has never seen.

The fate awaiting the Bonehunters is one no soldier can prepare for, and one no mortal soul can withstand — the foe is uncertainty and the only weapon worth wielding is stubborn courage. In war everyone loses, and this brutal truth can be found in the eyes of every soldier in every world.

Destinies are never simple. Truths are neither clear nor sharp. The Tales of the Malazan Book of the Fallen are drawing to a close in a distant place, beneath indifferent skies, as the last great army of the Malazan Empire seeks a final battle in the name of redemption. Final questions remain to be answered: can one’s deeds be heroic when no one is there to see it? Can that which is unwitnessed forever change the world? The answers await the Bonehunters, beyond the Wastelands…

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfortunately, book 9 is req'd for book 10 In past books, there would be new characters to follow but Erikson would make you care about them. In this book, he added a lot of new characters/plotlines and I connected with very little of it. I assume this was all to put the pieces in place for the final book and I can forgive him for that. But I felt I was bombarded with it in this book. Maybe Erikson spread himself too thin and therefore nothing had the desired affect. I don't know. K'Chain Che'Malle - Was very happy in getting a first hand POV of these guys. Looking forward to what might come in the future. Bonehunters - Didn't have much to do but are generally entertaining. Having the Letherii with them was interesting foil for what we love about the Malazans. Perish/Bolkando - I liked this part. Especially how wrong the Bolkando frequently were. Icarium - I feel the story structure Erikson used in these parts really detracted from what was happening. Shake/Snake/Barghast/Tool (and the other minor plotlines) - I feel like I was supposed to care about them (particularly the Snake) but I never did. These plotlines never held my interest. Despite this, I'm ready for book 10. Should be a great a finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review Significantly better than the travesty which was toll the hounds. Read it. Well worth suffering his lesser books to get to this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fantasy Writer Steven Erikson is nearing the end of his Malazan saga and continues to do it in grand style. Since this series started nearly 10 years ago, Erikson has created a massive fantasy world populated by real characters facing struggles big and small. The wars between gods aren't won by just one hero, but by the struggles of many. This is the first half of the ending saga, followed by Crippled God that was released last month. Brilliant pacing allows this novel to speed right to the end and leave one wanting more. I have the next on order and can hardly wait to finish it. I may then have to start the entire series again to get the full experience. Highly recommended the entire series and it is written by a Canadian. This is as good as fantasy gets and ranks up with Tolkien and Glen Cook as some of the finest fantasy ever written.
