This tenth and final novel in the series (Malazan Book of the Fallen) was unbelievable. If you've made it this far in the series, then I don't think you'll be disappointed. Steven Erikson has woven a truly heartbreaking tale. There were times when I had to set it down, and just...think. My best advice is to just read it, and watch the story slowly unfold. I think it wraps up the series nicely. 5 stars. Thank you, Mr. Erikson!

I noticed some other review rating it at around 3 stars and it appears that because it is so much to handle, many people either have a hard time understanding the plot or think its too long winded. if you re-read the series(a daunting task, I know)and then read this book you get more of the big picture and a sense of climax than if its been a while since you read the last book. Anyways just give it an honest effort before you really make up your mind about it.

It's a good book but long. The different stories that he tells in this one may be a bit too many because by the time he gets back to one you almost forget that story line with those characters.

What is left of the Bonehunters Army of the Malazan Empire is a battered unit who were devastated by the Chain Nah'Ruk. Their resolute leader Adjunct Tavore Paran knows the morale of her soldiers is mutinous as most want to go home to die. However, though she expects treachery and assassination from within, she relentlessly marches on with one last prayer that she hopes grasps victory from certain defeat. She understands humanity has to prevent the pandemic annihilation by the Forkrul Assail Elder Gods, who plan species cleansing through the liberation of Korabas the Otataral Dragon. The only chance Paran and company have resides with another deity. Paran and her army must liberate The Forgotten God, imprisoned by the Elder Gods for over 15,000 millennia. The Adjunct like the Watch expect to die, as Paran knows even if they somehow succeed to free the Crippled God, they still have no binds to control the enraged deity. Although it behooves the newcomer to have read the decade in the making ten book saga, at a minimum the audience needs to peruse the previous tale (see The Dust of Dreams) as that is the pre-set up (The Crippled God has a lengthy set-up anyway) to the ending novel. Loaded with action, fans will enjoy the climax once Steven Erikson starts the final days. Once again the theme is a person's heart as symbolized by courageous Paran who offers nothing to make her an extemporary leader except her soul. She and her everyman soldiers, though they will be forgotten by history as no minstrels will recall their names, are the heroes of the wars declared by elder armchair leaders. Harriet Klausner

This is the greatest, most original epic fantasy series ever written . Nothing else comes close . It has literally made it impossible for me to find anything else that satisfied me on this scale.

this is one of the best fantasy series I've read in my 40 years of reading this type of material. The characters, the unfolding of a complex plot and the threads which all seem to come together is well worth the time spent reading. A 3000 page book goes by like a 300 page book that alone tells how the storyline draws you in

A fairly satisfying end to the most relevant fantasy series ever. Lots of plot lines get finished, there is a future in the end. I just had to say that in response to the reviewer who decided that Erikson is "the most depressed man on earth". If you can't see the modern parallels, as only a master in the field of species migration and extinction patterns (archeology and anthropology can present them, well, I suggest you pay more attention to the media outside of the mainstream sources, because right now we are finding ourselves in the same place that many of Erikson's races and civilizations have and did, and thanks to the same socio-economic forces, no less. Replace international banks and their "Too Big to Fail" economic players with Ascendants and Elder Gods, Warrens with Cyber crime and the net, Priests with ideologues and cartels; that's us in a saga.
