really liked it
Read from April 11 to 29, 2011 — I own a copy , read count: 1

After a rocky start, I am really enjoying this series. I liked House of Chains just as much as I liked Memories of Ice. My concerns about switching characters again turned out to be unwarranted. I liked returning to the threads that started in Deadhouse Gates and liked the characters that reappeared even more this time.

I also liked the formal introduction of Karsa Orlong. After figuring out who he was, I reread passages that concerned him in Deadhouse Gates. It was neat to see how he tied in. I also enjoyed seeing more of Cotillion and finding out more of the history of the T'lan Imass.

Overall, I have been pleasantly surprised with The Malazan Book of the Fallen series. I can tell that a reread of the series would be worthwhile, but its length makes the thought of a reread daunting.

Next up is Midnight Tides, which appears to be the story of the Tiste Edur. The reviews of it are generally very good, so I am looking forward to it.
