The return of the mercenary company, the Crimson Guard, could not have come at a worse time for a Malazan Empire exhausted by warfare and weakened by betrayals and rivalries. Indeed, there are those who wonder whether the Empress Laseen might not be losing her grip on power as she faces increasing unrest as conquered kingdoms and principalities sense freedom once

I've read the Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Steven Erikson, and I am a big fan of his style of writing. I've also read Night of Knives by Esslemont, and in that book, his style seemed not nearly as rich in environment or description. Return of the Crimson Guard is much closer to the Book of the Fallen style. The differences are subtle enough that if you didn't know who the author was, you might not realize they were different. An outstanding book and I eagerly await the next one.

If your a fan on the series be sure to add this one to your reading list. I read Night of knives and was not too impressed, but the author has really developed his writing in this second book. Wonderful.

I like the quicker style even thought the battle scenes lack the scope in depth richness that Erickson has but it makes up for it as the story keeps moving. The books are improving and I enjoyed it. I plan to continue buying the series he is adding to.

If you are a fan of Steven Erikson the adventure continues with this second book from Ian Esslemont. I admit to being skeptical that two authors could co-exist within the same framework of the Malazan Empire. Happily they not only do, but complement each other! I've also read the Night of Knives from Esslemont and that was a good read and also come highly recommended. Can't wait for his third book!
