Overview

The Bonehunters (Malazan Book of the Fallen Series #6) by Steven Erikson

The Seven Cities Rebellion has been crushed. Sha'ik is dead. One last rebel force remains, holed up in the city of Y'Ghatan and under the fanatical command of Leoman of the Flails. The prospect of laying siege to this ancient fortress makes the battle-weary Malaz 14th Army uneasy. For it was here that the Empire's greatest champion Dassem Ultor was slain and a tide of Malazan blood spilled. A place of foreboding, its smell is of death.

But elsewhere, agents of a far greater conflict have made their opening moves.

The Crippled God has been granted a place in the pantheon, a schism threatens and sides must be chosen. Whatever each god decides, the ground-rules have changed, irrevocably, terrifyingly and the first blood spilled will be in the mortal world.

A world in which a host of characters, familiar and new, including Heboric Ghost Hands, the possessed Apsalar, Cutter, once a thief now a killer, the warrior Karsa Orlong and the two ancient wanderers Icarium and Mappo—each searching for such a fate as they might fashion with their own hands, guided by their own will. If only the gods would leave them alone. But now that knives have been unsheathed, the gods are disinclined to be kind. There shall be war, war in the heavens. And, the prize? Nothing less than existence itself...

Here is the stunning new chapter in Steven Erikson magnificent Malazan Book of the Fallenhailed as an epic of the imagination and acknowledged as a fantasy classic in the making.

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)"...
