Description

Enter the New York Times bestselling Malazan universe with this prequel trilogy

Steven Erikson returns to the Malazan world with the second novel in a dark and revelatory new epic fantasy trilogy, one that takes place a millennium before the events in his New York Times bestselling Malazan Book of the Fallen.

It's a conflicted time in Kurald Galain, the realm of Darkness, where Mother Dark reigns. But this ancient land was once home to many a power...and even death is not quite eternal. The commoners' great hero, Vatha Urusander, is being promoted by his followers to take Mother Dark's hand in marriage, but her Consort, Lord Draconus, stands in the way of such ambitions. The impending clash sends fissures throughout the realm. As rumors of civil war burn through the masses, an ancient power emerges from the long dead seas. Caught in the middle of it all are the First Sons of Darkness, Anomander, Andarist, and Silchas Ruin of the Purake Hold....

Great story, terrible pronunciation

Ty-stee for Tiste? Pronouncing the H in Jaghut? This is brutal to listen to, really takes away from the listening experience. Barnaby Edwards is absolutely awful at narrating.

great book, chapters out of order...

In my download, chapter 1, actually starts in the last 2min of chapter 61. so, you end up listening to the end of your book, about halfway through... lame, wish someone had left a note like this earlier.

A truly painful listening experience

I have listened to the ten books in the book of the fallen series. I was really looking forward to more stories from this amazing universe. This recording is a huge disappointment for me. The changes in pronunciation etc are storybreakingly jarring to the ear. I have listened to thousands of hours of audible and have never had to abandon a series based on a narrator before. This is very sad sad sad.

Steven Erickson needs to get to the point

too many characters
too much philosophy
not enough actual storyline
felt like a chore to read. loved the malazan series, but this is tough to get through.

Gothos had a hand in this

The ever present monologues have the feel of Gothos' interminable suicide note. The story Is good, but the padding could favourably bee cut in half.

Brilliant and amazing.

I had a hard time settling into the story to start, but that soon changed. It was an absolute treat to listen to. The introduction of familiar characters from the Malazan series was a great addition. I eagerly look forward to the next book in the series.

Much better narrator than Forge of Darkness

First things first - the audio is in proper order now, they fixed it after the previous reviewers comments.

Mostly I’m just stopping in to say if the previous narrator for Forge of Darkness turned you off, this guy is much better. While almost everything the previous guy said ended up sounding like a busy 16 year old on their way to the mall, this new guy has proper gravitas for the source material. He isn’t perfect, but he’s miles ahead of Philpott.
Regarding pronunciation, every narrator in Erikson’s stuff seems to do it differently. Kind of a let down. I would expect better from the producers at Brilliance Audio, but as always, you get used to it :(

what Just happened

i spent 44 hours waiting for literally ANYTHING to happen and it never did. the writing is overly complicated to a degree that would make Shakespeare seem like slang. just unreal that i waited until the last chapter for the big battle and all they did was describe where the soldiers were standing, then they jump cut to someone telling mother dark that the battle is over. just terrible. i had almost no idea what was happening for the entire book. would not recommend this book to anyone, unless you enjoy pretentious and complicated writing with little to no actual plot

I hate this.

Endless monologue I really wanted to tell the characters to shut up about there philosophical ramblings. I get it sir war bad soldiers bad leaders bad civilization bad religion bad. I didn’t need 900 pages for you to tell me that.

Come on Audible. You're better than this

I love the story but Audible messed up the order of the chapters pretty badly so the beginning of the book is at around chapter 62-80 ish and then you go back to chapter 1-61 and then you go back to the end......

Great book, listen in the correct order

I wish I would have realized that the chapters are out of order. Like the other review mentions, start listening towards the end of chapter 61. Just find the start and listen to about Chapter 90, then go back to the start of the book to pick it up in order.

I found this the most tedious Erikson read to date, but the end of the book makes the read completely worthwhile. There are some insightful and heart wrenching conversations at the end of the book between some of the main characters of the series. These are not to be missed for any serious fan of the series. Amazing.
