The fourth Malazan Book of the Fallen is aptly titled. The Malazan 14th Army warily combs the ruins of the Seven Cities Rebellion for what may be left of its dead, meanwhile straining what's left of its morale. The Crippled God has joined the pantheon, and at least half his numerous fellow deities are trying to expel him. A war of the gods impends, and while it will cost the usual high price in collateral damage among humans, Erikson will handle it with originality and strong impact, given that even the sympathetic characters are becoming people you wouldn't want holding your IOUs. Green, Roland
“This is true myth in the making, a drawing upon fantasy to recreate histories and legends as rich as any found within our culture.”
“Gripping, fast-moving, delightfully dark … Erikson brings a punchy, mesmerizing writing style into the genre of epic fantasy, making an indelible impression. Utterly engrossing.”
