Ragged armies and gods old and new collide in the dizzyingly complex penultimate tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen (following 2008's Toll the Hounds). After a traumatic reading of the tiles, Adjunct Tagore of the Malazan decides to quit the Letherii capital. To placate neighboring territories, Brys Beddict and a contingent of Letherii escort Tagore and her army through the Wastelands on their way to the port of Kolanse. The Barghast find their own reasons to head for the Wastelands, as do the T'lan Imass, a group of bloodthirsty Jaghut, and the army of the K'Chain Che'Malle. Gods tweak the players on this continent-sized chess board even as they themselves are manipulated. Erickson begins to reel in the long lines of his huge plot, giving enough hints to leave readers impatient for the 10th volume. (Jan.)

In the ninth Malazan Book of the Fallen volume, the last remnant of the Malazan Empire, in exile on the continent of Letherii, marches east against unknown but undoubtedly formidable foes. If the soldiers see themselves and their empire as fallen, they even more certainly see themselves bound by oaths and comradeship to keep faith with one another until the last enemy is identified, met, and, if possible, overcome. If not, their oaths are still binding. There is herein a quality reminiscent of the 300 Spartans coming to the fore that, added to the complexity and grandeur of the world-building, is downright enthralling. --Roland GreenSee all Editorial Reviews

Book nine of a ten book series. A little difficult to follow with other the different characters but that's how the entire series is written.Published 3 months ago by J. V.
These books, the books in the Malazan Book of the Fallen series, are hard to rate. The author is an excellent writer, but not necessarily accessible to the average reader. Read morePublished 3 months ago by R. Bodenstedt
