"Each new novel moves from strength to strength...this series has already established itself as the most significant work of epic fantasy since Stephen R. Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant" (SF SITE)

"The kind of epic narrative that will have you scrambling for more" (STEPHEN R. DONALDSON)

"Erikson is a master of lost and forgotten epochs, a weaver of ancient epics...his books are fantasy for grown-ups, but his war-torn world of constant upheavals reminds one an awful lot of our own" (SALON.COM)

"This is true myth in the making, a drawing upon fantasy to recreate histories and legends as rich as any found within our culture" (INTERZONE)

5.0 out of 5 stars Stick with it. Trust me. 18 March 2017
By muldoon24 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not going to pretend like Midnight Tides brings the whole series together, but it really fleshes out some of the thus-far lesser known races. At this point you should have a good idea of the Pantheon and you should know who and what the characters are, but if you don't you will be miserable. This book is yet another in the excellent series by Steven Erikson. The depth is unmatched and if you can stick with it, the series is so worth it
5.0 out of 5 stars It’s war between Lether and the Tiste Edur. A prequel of sorts to House of Chains. 29 June 2016
By Chip Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
MIDNIGHT TIDES centers on a conflict between the Letherii and the Titse Edur. Arrogantly, the Letherii have goaded the Edur into war, assuming that their wealth, magic, and size will spell inevitable victory for the Letherii. Unfortunately for them, the Edur are talented warriors with unexpected ferocity. In addition, this group of Edur has been granted unholy powers by the Crippled God, who has manipulated himself into position to control the Edur through their young emperor, Rhulad.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Erickson Finally has come into his own 26 August 2011
By mobiusklien - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
It is true that only 2 characters from the previous 4 books are carried over here, Trull Senger and the Crippled God, and while that can be daunting to learn of a whole new set of characters and realms in another 1000+ book, this was was a welcome change for a number of reasons.
First of all I laughed at the irony and quirky sense of humor often. He built upon the humorous attempts in House of Chains. This humor is coupled with a rich view of Tiste Edur and the Letheri. I have seen some people complain about introducing all of these new peoples, but he had to do something about the Edur, because he mentioned them in Deadhouse Gates ( the ship with decapitated oarsmen). And the scenes on that ship with the crazy water and the dragon in the sky seemed to need more explanation.
He has started to unravel more of the mysteries, he actually tried to explain the concept of warrens a bit better ( the scifi reader in me tried to map them to a worm hole of course)
For good or bad he injects his philosophy about capitalism versus other forms of economies as well, and I found several quotable passages.
His treatment of Rhulad, the brat who becomes emperor was powerful, you do see both sides of the cruelty imposed by the crippled god, and the consequent horrid behavior from Rhulad.
There are very few flaws in this book, but I wish he would have made it easier to understand how far in the past these events occurred relative to the other books. His ironic twists and keen observations and immersion have earned him a 5 star this time.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but not as good as the ones preceding it. Either way, essential to the series. 7 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is essentially the start of an entirely new plot line within the series. Thus, it took a little bit for me to really get into it. So far, it has probably been my least favorite of the series. However, after reading the next in the series, things start to tie together which makes this book essential reading. As always, Erikson paints a wonderfully complex world full of interesting characters and creatures. While it may be my least favorite thus far, it is still leagues better than a lot of other books I've read. If you've read through book 4, what are you waiting for?! Just read it!

If you have made it this far in the Malazan series you are in for a treat. I think this is the best one yet. Get the audio too. Wonderful and complex.
