The book is full of excellent characters, and mostly revolves around two sets of three brothers, one Edur and one Letherii. The Beddict brothers (Hull, Brys, and the hilarious Tehol) couldn’t be more different from one another, though they all play important roles in Letherii society. The Sengar brothers come form a powerful family within the Tiste Edur, and include Fear, Trull, and the aforementioned Rhulad. Trull is perhaps my favorite character from the entire series, being a extremely well-done character whom is also featured in House of Chains. He represents the skeptic and the thinker who is able to see beyond common group-think and challenge the assumptions of his people.
MIDNIGHT TIDES compares favorably with the other books in the series. It includes all of the same drama, violence, and magnificent imagery that all of the books lean on. Perhaps it is a little more focused and tame than the other books tend to be, helping the reader feel a bit more grounded in this vast world of Steven Erikson. Highly recommended. Looking forward to continuing the series with The Bonehunters
Plus I must say that the rather blunt representation of capitalism and history and honor while expressed heavy handed still leaves a lot of room for one to have their own opinions and doubt, happily.
As I seem to end each review, it’s with the hope the author maintains this level of good storytelling.
Conflict of Tiste Edur and Letherii is well founded, characters, once introduced, behave logically and the book ending is quite realistic.
