OK, I've started and read the prologue. Some new characters, some new settings--I'm a little surprised that Erikson continues to expand the cast and world when this book and the next book will wrap up the series.

And it's a very bleak start, very bleak.


Helen Well that'll cheer my Christmas!

Prologue is bleak but the next couple chapters are less so. Some of the action is back in Letharii--Tehol & Bugg! Bonehunters!


Scott (thekeeblertree) | 99 comments Yeah, at first I was pretty shocked at all the new characters. But then I remembered that I was dealing with Eriksen and I shouldn't have expected anything else haha.

It's a very interesting penultimate book; the payoff at the end is pretty well worth the funky prologue and parts with new characters.


Helen I love Tehol and Bugg. I'm reading two hopefully quick reads then I'll read this and the final back to back.

Merry Christmas


Scott (thekeeblertree) | 99 comments They are great. You'd think it would get old after a while but it never got to that point for me

Helen I'm starting and I already have no idea who anyone is or what is going on! Yay, it's Malazan.


Scott (thekeeblertree) | 99 comments New year, new characters :D

I'd like to say it gets better, and yes, there are familiar characters, but there are new ones, and new storylines. This is truly a sprawling series with a cast of thousands!


Helen Can you imagine filming it and trying to justify why you needed ten million main actors.

haha, that would be bonkers. I don't think there's any way to do these books in film/tv.

But there sure are plenty of scenes that are awesomely cinematic!

Yeah, there really are. Maybe if they took one story line like the chain of dogs and made that into a movie.


Helen Funny, I've thought a few times that this is like for our five different stories wrapped together.

The Bonehunters would be unmissable.
