Book Description

Feb. 20 2012 Malazan Book of the Fallen (Book 10)
Savaged by the K'Chain Nah'Ruk, the Bonehunters march for Kolanse, where waits an unknown fate. Tormented by questions, the army totters on the edge of mutiny, but Adjunct Tavore will not relent. One final act remains, if it is in her power, if she can hold her army together, if the shaky allegiances she has forged can survive all that is to come. A woman with no gifts of magic, deemed plain, unprepossessing, displaying nothing to instill loyalty or confidence, Tavore Paran of House Paran means to challenge the gods -- if her own troops don't kill her first.

Awaiting Tavore and her allies are the Forkrul Assail, the final arbiters of humanity. Drawing upon an alien power terrible in its magnitude, they seek to cleanse the world, to annihilate every human, every civilization, in order to begin anew. They welcome the coming conflagration of slaughter, for it shall be of their own devising, and it pleases them to know that, in the midst of the enemies gathering against them, there shall be betrayal. In the realm of Kurald Galain, home to the long lost city of Kharkanas, a mass of refugees stand upon the First Shore. Commanded by Yedan Derryg, the Watch, they await the breaching of Lightfall, and the coming of the Tiste Liosan. This is a war they cannot win, and they will die in the name of an empty city and a queen with no subjects.

Elsewhere, the three Elder Gods, Kilmandaros, Errastas and Sechul Lath, work to shatter the chains binding Korabas, the Otataral Dragon, and release her from her eternal prison. Once freed, she will be a force of utter devastation, and against her no mortal can stand. At the Gates of Starvald Demelain, the Azath House sealing the portal is dying. Soon will come the Eleint, and once more, there will be dragons in the world. And so, in a far away land and beneath indifferent skies, the final cataclysmic chapter in the extraordinary 'Malazan Book of the Fallen' begins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Erikson is a Genius! Oct. 6 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My rating is based on the entire series because you have to read all 10 books to full appreciate what Erikson has done here. Yes, the 10th book leaves you with more questions than answers… but after reading the first 8 or 9 books if you thought Erikson would explain everything in the end well than you were not paying attention. I feel less like I read 10 books and more like I was transported to another world(s) where I paid witness to amazing things and met fascinating people, and only understood half of what was happening but was fully enthralled in everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Worth Your Time. Aug. 19 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Great ending to the series. Definitely going to back and read them from the beginning. Quite long, but a fun book to move through nonetheless.

By R. Nicholson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
"The Crippled God" is the final book in the epic "The Malazan Book of the Fallen" series by Steven Erikson. The hard cover book is 928 pages long while the Kindle e-edition is a 1748 Kb download.

I review this book with some ambivalence...on one hand I loved the entire series but yet had some difficulty with Erikson's continual and frequent digressions to confusing side stories (confusing at least to me) and the seemingly unending stream of internal musings by and between many of his characters.

While the tale of Adjunct Tavore and her 'Bonehunters' seemed 'relatively' easy to follow, as did actions of her main opponent, the Forkrul Assail, there were other areas of the book that I had little insight as to what was going on. The entire book seemed to jump around from one story to another; tales that you knew must be related to the main story, but the connection was not easily obvious. And to confuse things further, these side tales where often laced with seemingly private thoughts and often feature protracted discussion about topics I knew nothing about and between characters who seemed to be on the periphery.

As a result, I almost had to study some sections of what might be called a complicated novel. After a while I just started to get weary of continually trying to discern what people were 'really' saying or thinking. While there were thrilling accounts of battles and tactics there were other prolonged (emphasis on prolonged) sections that reminded me of difficulty I had interpreting large sections of the 8th book, "Toll the Hounds"...a book that was probably my least favorite in the entire series.

One of my concerns for this particular novel focused on the fact that there seemed to be no real closure to this tale...

3.0 out of 5 stars The end of a grand journey... May 15 2011
By mUSER
Format:Paperback
Well, after wrapping up this last tale of the Fallen, I must say that I have mixed feelings.

For the most part, R. Nicholson (previous reviewer) took the words right out of my mouth.

I have yet to discover another fantasy author who quite captured me so thoroughly and kept me so enthralled for so many years. Such a beautifully powerful tale, inspiring so many moments of deep thought and reflection... I'm grateful to have happened upon the Gardens of the Moon by random chance.

However, I must say that the series - especially this last book - had its flaws.

I am certainly, by no means, a novice with difficult reads. I've thoroughly consumed Neal Stephenson, and countless other great writers. Nonetheless, There were many moments that I simply felt lost in the countless spaghetti stranded plot strings, desperately trying to recall what had happened to lead to this, or that. I'd often find myself struggling to pull the meaning of a characters brief interior dialogue, or trying to discern the end result of it. There were many moments of frustration that I simply plowed along through, driven by my history with and overall love for the series.

I was rather disappointed to find that, unlike any previous edition of the series, there were far too many moments within that I simply found myself unable to empathize with the sentiments of the characters. I felt that there was an overabundance of "breaking into a sob" or "lines of tears running down bleak faces" which simply felt hollow. I simply couldn't feel the moments of near weeping that the characters experienced when dealing with the Adjunct. This, and primarily this, was a major anchor to the tale for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an incredible read April 4 2011
Format:Paperback
To describe the Malazan books as epic is......inadequate. Having read SF and Fantasy for over 30 years and being a life-time Tolkien fan let me just say that no one I have ever read can hold a candle to Erikson. The intricate plots, staggering world-building, rich character development, and a fully realized magical structure unlike any other will likely render me unable to read any other fantasy for some time.

An then there's The Crippled God. I thought Toll the Hounds was mind-blowing but I had no idea what was coming. The conclusion (which is really one book in two parts Part 1: DoD and Part 2: TCG) is Epic, Apocalyptic, Dark, Brooding, Brutal and ultimately satisfying. I wish I could gripe and say it was predictable, and, being a conclusion, it was mildly so. Nevertheless, and even after reading Dust of Dreams twice he still, for the 10th time now, managed to have some solid surprises.

On the one hand it's gratifying to see such a tremendous project brought to a thunderous conclusion and on the other I'm sad to see it over. The denouement is gratifyingly short and touching.

There are still just enough loose threads hanging to make me want more.

Who, or what, is Kruppe ultimately. He seems to be more than a mage but less than a god.

I hope he writes some more about Kruppe and the oft-referenced but never see One-Eye Cat.
