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.

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.

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.

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.

you get used to the pronunciations after a while

Any becomes Andy eye, tist becomes tistay. there are some others that are worse, but it's still the great malazan you expect.

Brilliant Treatise on Love, War & Honor.

This is a must read for any Malazan Empire fans! Learn what came before...and why our Hero's like Anomander, Draconis, and Silchas enteract the way they do.

Exhausting

I first became hooked on Erickson with the Malazan series and loved it enough to read it twice. Anything this author has written since then feels like wading through cement. He showed signs of his tendency to digress, during the Malayan series but managed to hold himself in check enough to stay on task. Unfortunately as he continues to publish, he digresses more and more into long exhaustive philosophical pontifications. With text I can skim over it. With audio I just shut it off and turn on the news.
