Deadhouse Gates is a dark fantasy, with graphic and horrific violence. But the violence, often quite extreme, is not glorified--it's a direct consequence of the characters' decisions. The depth of historical background and complexity of plot separates Erikson's vision from most other large-scale fantasy series. His characters inhabit a world whose history stretches back tens of thousands of years, and the schemes they hatch are inspired by some ancient catastrophe as often as they're motivated by their own desires. The result is a novel that keeps the reader riveted for 900 pages, eager to find out what happens next. --Greg L. Johnson --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
