The series title "The Malazan Book of the Fallen" sucked me in and I had to give this book a try. The first few chapters had me a little anxious about the book, the author just sort of throws you to the Hounds as it were. Then suddenly BAM you are sucked into a world of extreme action and power! Just when you think that one of the antagonists is all powerful and unstoppable, the author throws another in that makes the first one look like a child! At first I was thinking, ok, this is nuts, there is too much magic and power being tossed around here, but the author makes it work and tosses you on a roller coaster of epic magical battle the will blow you away. There is no really good way to try to tell you what this novel is about, I will however say if you are looking for a story from the likes of a Weis or a Salvatore, then this is not the story for your. This novel is intelligent, and very complex, but totally worth it.
