I started reading Erikson's Malazan series with Memories of Ice. Although I was quite lost for the first 50 pages or so, I was totally gripped by the world, its characters and the 'houses'. So I made it a point to get the the rest of the series and believe me I have never been so hypnotized by an Author before. I had the misfortune of reading midnight tides 6 days before my Final year university exams start. The book was so good, I was lucky to graduate!! I actually finished the book in 5 days time.
The book actually explains a lot more about the non-human races in Eriksson's world, than the previous books. We get hints that there will sometime (hopefully) be a book with Anomander history.
The battles are realistic, the writing is very advanced it actually improved my English and the characters are all palpable. The plot is a roller coaster ride full of adrenaline-pumped moments and gets better and better.
Erikson, bring on number 6!!
