Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Reaper's Gale: The Malazan Book of the Fallen 7 by Steven Erikson, read by Michael Page. 

All is not well in the Letherii Empire. Rhulad Sengar, the Emperor of a Thousand Deaths, spirals into madness, surrounded by sycophants and agents of his Machiavellian chancellor, while the Letherii secret police conduct a campaign of terror against its own people. The Errant, once a farseeing god, is suddenly blind to the future. Conspiracies seethe throughout the palace, as the empire - driven by the corrupt and self-interested - edges ever closer to all-out war with the neighbouring kingdoms. And the great Edur fleet - its warriors selected from countless peoples - draws ever closer. Amongst them are Karsa Orlong and Icarium Lifestealer - each destined to cross blades with the Emperor himself. That yet more blood is to be spilled is inevitable....

Against this backdrop, a band of fugitives seek a way out of the empire, but one of them, Fear Sengar, must find the soul of Scabandari Bloodeye. It is his hope that it might help halt the Tiste Edur and so save his brother, the Emperor. Yet travelling with them is Scabandari's most ancient foe: Silchas Ruin, brother of Anomander Rake. And his motives are anything but certain - for the wounds he carries on his back, made by the blades of Scabandari, are still fresh. Fate decrees that there is to be a reckoning, for such bloodshed cannot go unanswered - and it will be a reckoning on an unimaginable scale....

A brutal, harrowing novel of war, intrigue and dark, uncontrollable magic, this is epic fantasy at its most imaginative, storytelling at its most thrilling.

Magnificent

There's nothing else like this series. The scope and scale of it is equal to the talent behind it. The narrator is perfect.

One of the Best So Far!

This is my second time through the series, and I think this time this is either my favourite or second favourite (next to Memories of Ice) of the Book of the Fallen so far. The story is a beautiful and bloody meeting of all the intertwining plot threads up to this point, and sets the tone for the remainder of the series. I think there will be some complaints (as I had the first time) about the book focusing on completely new characters and plot threads. But I found them really entertaining, and they contributed to the rich themes that just permeate this book. The structure of this one is masterful too.

I’m also going to say, this is Michael Page’s best read yet. Not much more to add to that, but the narration was amazing.

I Love this world

I wouldn't want to live in it, but I love it. Well maybe if I were a High Mage...

Fantastic Writing but...

This is a great novel. I jusr can't get past the performance. The reader has added a harsh whisper to his repertoire of growls and stereotyped racial accents (Scottish, Indian, etc.)

BIT OF A SPOILER BELOW:












Erickson's writing of the death of Beak is some of the best I have ever read. The humor of Tehol and Bugg is brilliant. With a better reader this book could be a classic. It's already a great fantasy story. This one rates 8 stars out of 10.
