    did not really care for it as a whole

    The book to me wandered a bit. While I intend to read them all I am finding the books go into great detail and then its almost like he rushes the ending. Some parts are brilliant and other parts you just slog through to get through so you can get to a part that is actually enjoyable

    The "Empire Strikes Back" of this series. Reading the previous books in the series beforehand may not be necessary; regardless of where you start, you'll have to work to keep them all sorted out. If you don't go for the whole chronological publication approach, you can think about starting with the books that take place on the continent of Lether. In my opinion, Erikson doesn't even try to do any background in the first two or three books other than brief descriptions of the operating forces of his world, we just have to read and remember. It may not matter, as his writing is as evocative as any authors out there. You don't have to be a Malaz Empire Official historian (see book two, House of Chains) to laugh your tail off, yell at some characters, and even sob a little at the folly of humanity and loss. The rest is just details to be gleaned from re-reads. I simply haven't read any modern authors who play on your emotions and thoughts the way that Erikson does, at least in as many ways. Can you imagine what your favorite musical group or composer would have been able to do if tragedy in their personal lives hadn't interfered? What would have happened with your favorite team if their star didn't bow out from injury? "There will be (re-reads)"...

    by this time your having a blast..

    like the others in the series, this is some serious swashbuckling, intensely visual, pounding rhythmical writing. Truly cinematic stuff. This volume ties in the seemingly disconnected previous books and brings on the heavy guns. Grab on, the read will be fun for sure!

    strong epic fantasy

    The defeat was so devastating especially with the rebel leader Sha¿il dead the revolt is all but lost. The last remnant of the rebel army has fled inside the eerie city of Y¿Ghatan where the Malazan army hesitates because this is the haunted place where many of their ancestors died. That is why fanatical rebel leader Leoman chose to take a last stand here as he knows this spot will embolden his followers and hopefully rattles his untested in the blood of war opponent Malazan commander Adjunct Tavore into making a mistake. Leoman understands death is everywhere here and that soon more will follow. --- Another war seems imminent as the pantheon of Gods is divided over allowing The Crippled God sanctuary with them. As each deity chooses a side in what has become an ugly debate, blood will soon flow. Although the agreements between the gods have been broken, one tentatively remains to keep the battles out of heaven and instead let the hostilities occur on mortal grounds because humans are expendable. Captain Ganoes Paran, the 'master of the deck', rejects that notion while Karsa Olong relishes the war of the gods where his violence is an asset unless you happen to be the ¿children¿ as he calls humans. --- This strong entry continues the terrific Malazan Book of the Fallen epic fantasy with several major subplots beyond those described above occur that move the tale forward. Fans of Steve Erikson¿s superb saga will appreciate this strong tale with battle scenes so detailed the audience will feel they are part of the siege (on both sides). It is the depth that makes book six one of the best in a super series. One warning for newcomers is obvious read the previous tales first to truly savor all that is happening in THE BONEHUNTERS (see MIDNIGHT TIDES). --- Harriet Klausner
