Overview

House of Chains (Malazan Book of the Fallen Series #4) by Steven Erikson

In Northern Genabackis, just before the events recounted in Gardens of the Moon, a tribal raiding party descends into the southern flat lands intent on wreaking havoc. But for the one named Karsa Orlong it marks the beginning of what will prove an extraordinary destiny.

Some years later, Tavore, recently appointed Adjunct to the Empress, has arrived in the last Malazan stronghold on Seven Cities. New to command, she must hone twelve thousand soldiers, into a force capable of confronting the massed hordes of the seer Sha’ik’s Whirlwind who lie in the heart of the Holy Desert.

But waiting is never easy. The tribal chiefs are locked in a power struggle that threatens the very soul of the rebellion, while Sha’ik herself is haunted by the knowledge of her nemesis, Tavore, her own sister…

So begins this awesome epic novel of war, intrigue, magic and betrayal from a writer regarded as one of the most original and exciting storytellers in fantasy today.

One of the best series I have read. A true escape. Very well written, a unique and original story. Better than Jordan. Each book in the series keeps you captivated, none feel like filler.

Every minute of this series is as exciting and thought provoking as the last. It's darker than the wheel of time while at the same time more light hearted that game of thrones. I thinks it's safe to say that fans of either could find something they love in this series.

If you're looking for something to fill your time and your a fan of fantasy novels, these books will work. I can't say that there's too much about them that makes me want to recommend them, but I do keep buying them. Huge fantasy world with a tun of characters. I sometimes have troubles keeping track of who's who, but that's why Erikson provided a cast of characters and a glossary, and it proves the usefulness of the Find button on my nook.

Erikson continues a great series with book 4 in this epic series. This series itself is a musr read for engine who is a fan of authors such as Martin or Tolkien.

If you have enjoyed the first three books of this series, Erikson offers up more of the same outstanding writing and character development that he has in previous series books. The action in this book takes place primarily in the Holy Desert Rarauku in the Seven Cities, however there is a large section of the book dealing with Karsa Orlong that takes place in previously undisclosed locations. Characters from previous books such as Kalam, Apsalar and Crokus (now with a new name) make appearances also. Much like Memories of Ice this book builds up to a grand battle at the end, but has the stylistic feel of Chain of Dogs. A must read for any fan of the Malazan.
