Malazan Book of the Fallen By Steven Erikson. Got a solid series of books for half if not less the cost it would've been to download each one from a sight like Chapters. Haven't fully dug into them but I can say it was a worthwhile download. Only complaint was that a few of the books were scuffed up but that was likely due to being shipped.

The third novel, Memories of Ice , takes place back on Genabackis and follows the uneasy alliance between the armies of warlord Caladan Brood and the imperial Onearm's Host against the Pannion Domin.
Memories of Ice takes place during the same time as Deadhouse Gates.
This novel also follows the trials of Karsa Orlong , a Teblor warrior setting out across the world from their isolated enclave. This novel does not feature characters seen in previous novels with the sole exception of Trull Sengar. It takes place several years before Gardens of the Moon. The sixth novel, The Bonehunters , combines all of the previous strands and plots, with the armies converging on Seven Cities, and the Letherii setting out in search of warriors to battle their immortal emperor.
The seventh novel, Reaper's Gale , takes the Malazan armies to the Letherii homeland. It also covers the Awl struggle against the Letherii on another side of the continent. The eighth novel, Toll the Hounds , revolves around the Tiste Andii of Black Coral and some of the main characters who have returned, or settled, in the city of Darujhistan. The ninth novel, Dust of Dreams , revolves around the Bonehunters and their journey on their new, mysterious mission in the far-off sub-continent of Kolanse.
The tenth novel, The Crippled God , ties the various plots and armies together for the battle in the Kolanse sub-continent.
The Kharkanas Trilogy Edit The three volumes that comprise the Kharkanas Trilogy are set more than , years prior to the main series and depict the splintering of the Tiste into their three distinct sub-races, a crisis caused by the actions of Mother Dark and her consort Draconus , and the refusal of certain Tiste nobles to accept their relationship.
This trilogy is notable for explaining many concepts and ideas left vague in the main series, such as the nature of the Elder Gods. After completing the first two books, Forge of Darkness and Fall of Light , Erikson took a break from the series to begin work on the Witness Trilogy.
The Witness Trilogy Edit Originally planned for when the Kharkanas Trilogy was completed, Erikson is currently writing a further three volumes which will be set after The Crippled God and will focus on Karsa Orlong and his long-held plan to bring about the fall of human civilisation.
The first book is The God is Not Willing. Bauchelain and Korbal Broach Edit These side-novellas depict the misadventures of the two titular necromancers and their long-suffering manservant, Emancipor Reese , who played a minor role in Memories of Ice.
The novellas move about their timeline and that of the series and are notably lighter in tone and more focused than the main series. Six of the nine planned novellas beginning with Blood Follows have been completed to date.
Novels of the Malazan Empire Edit Ian Esslemont's first series tells its own stories while weaving in and out of the events of Erikson's ten original novels. The second plotline takes place on the subcontinent of Seven Cities and depicts a major native uprising against Malazan rule.
This rebellion is known as 'the Whirlwind'.
The story of the pursuit, and the event itself, is referred to as the Chain of Dogs. The fourth novel, House of Chains , sees the continuation of this storyline with newly arrived Malazan reinforcements — the 14th Army — taking the war to the rebels. The 14th's exploits earn them the nickname, 'The Bonehunters'. The third plotline was introduced with Midnight Tides , the fifth book released in the series.
This novel introduces a previously unknown continent where two nations, the united tribes of the Tiste Edur and the Empire of Lether, are engaged in escalating tensions, which culminate in open warfare. The novel takes place contemporaneously with earlier books in the sequence and the events in it are in fact being related in flashback by a character from the fourth volume to one of his comrades although the novel itself is told in the traditional third-person form.
The sixth book, The Bonehunters , sees all three plot strands combined, with the now-reconciled Malazan army from Genabackis arriving in Seven Cities to aid in the final defeat of the rebellion. At the same time, fleets from the newly proclaimed Letherii Empire are scouring the globe for worthy champions to face their immortal emperor in battle, in the process earning the enmity of elements of the Malazan Empire.
The seventh novel, Reaper's Gale , sees the Malazan 14th Army arriving in Lether to take the battle to the Letherii homeland. The ninth and tenth novels, Dust of Dreams and The Crippled God, picks up the storyline on the Lether continent and deal with the activities of the 14th Army following their successful 'liberation' of the Letherii people and the revelation that the K'Chain Che'Malle species and Forkrul Assail species have returned.
The 14th Army is attempting to deal with the peril that the Crippled God has caused with his attempts to poison the warrens and to wake Burn. Ian Cameron Esslemont's novels are labeled as Novels of the Malazan Empire, not as parts of the Malazan Book of the Fallen itself, and deal primarily with the Malazan Empire, its internal politics and characters who only play minor roles in Erikson's novels.
His first novel, Night of Knives , details events in Malaz City on the night that the Emperor Kellanved was assassinated. The second, Return of the Crimson Guard , investigates the fall-out in the Malazan Empire from the devastating losses of the Genabackan, Korelri and Seven Cities campaigns following the events of The Bonehunters.
Esslemont's third novel, Stonewielder , explores events on the Korelri continent for the first time in the series and focuses on the often-mentioned, rarely seen character of Greymane. The fourth novel, Orb Sceptre Throne , revisits Genebackis once again in the wake of Erikson's Toll the Hounds, and features several well known characters seen in Erikson's novels.
Further comments by Esslemont and Erikson have hinted that Esslemont's fifth novel, Blood and Bone visits the continent of Jacuruku and the sixth, Assail, set on the continent of Assail, will serve as a closing chapter and coda for the entire series. Influences[ edit ] In a general review of The Cambridge Companion to Fantasy Literature, edited by Edward James and Farah Mendlesohn , Erikson fired a shot across the bow of "the state of scholarship in the fantastic as it pertains to epic fantasy,"  taking particularly to task James's opening lines in Chapter 5 of that volume.
Erikson uses a handful of words from that chapter as an epigraph for a quasi-autobiographical essay in The New York Review of Science Fiction. James's sentences read in full: " J. Tolkien said that the phrase 'In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit' came to his unconscious mind while marking examination papers; he wrote it on a blank page in an answer book.
From that short sentence, one might claim, much of the modern fantasy genre emerged. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings —5 henceforth LOTR looms over all the fantasy written in English—and in many other languages—since its publication; most subsequent writers of fantasy are either imitating him or else desperately trying to escape his influence.
In my youth, I sidestepped Tolkien entirely, finding my inspiration and pleasure in the genre through Howard , Burroughs , and Leiber.
As my own gaming experience advanced, it was not long before I abandoned those tropes Accordingly, my influences in terms of fiction are post-Tolkien, and they came from conscious responses to Tolkien Donaldson 's Thomas Covenant series and unconscious responses to Tolkien Cook 's Dread Empire and Black Company series.
You're flat-out wrong. Magic[ edit ] Magic in the Malazan series is accomplished by tapping the power of a Warren or Hold, from within the body of the mage. Effects common to most warrens include enchantment of objects investment , minor healing, large-scale blasts and travel through warren across great distances in a short period of time.
Other effects are more specific to each warren. For example, Thyr is the warren of light, Telas is the warren of fire, Serc is the warren of Air, and Denul is the warren of healing.
The specific uses of this power can vary depending on the ingenuity of the user. Only a minority of humans can access warrens, usually tapping and working with a single one, with High Mages accessing two or three.
Two notable exceptions to this are the High Mage Quick Ben who can access seven at any single time out of his repertoire of twelve due to his killing of and subsequent merging with the souls of eleven other sorcerers , and Beak who can access all the warrens although he seems to have a cognitive disability.
Certain Elder races have access to warrens specific to their race which seem to be significantly more powerful and cannot be blocked by the magic-deadening ore otataral.
Examples of this phenomenon are Tellann, representing fire, for the T'lan Imass, and Omtose Phellack, representing ice, for the Jaghut. Alternatively, a more basic form of magic can be harnessed by using or capturing natural spirits of the land, elements, people, or animals.
A form of this method is also utilized when the power of an ascendant or god is called upon or channeled, although in most cases this is also linked with the warren of that being. Soletaken and D'ivers[ edit ] Some characters within the Malazan series are able to veer into animal form shapeshifting.
