This is a great improvement from Esselmonts first book. The writing is better, the plotting is better and it has captured more of the Malazan feeling that soaks the Erikson books better.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit, but I will freely admit the fourth star is due to some of the pure macho kickassery in some of the scenes. Erikson remains the better writer, but Esselmont has raised his game a lot and delivered a book that is fun to read.
