Product description

From Amazon

Steven Erikson returns to a world of awesome magic and harsh reality, unbelievable suffering and unexpected joy in Deadhouse Gates, the second tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen. Readers of the first book, Gardens of the Moon, will be familiar with some of the characters, including members of the Bridgeburners seeking to assassinate the Empress Laseen. But we also meet many new players, prominent among them participants in the Whirlwind, the prophesied revolt of the Seven Cities against the Malazan Empire. We follow the journeys and suffering of Felisin, a young girl betrayed into slavery by her sister, and of Coltaine, the Malazan Fist, who must lead his army across the desert while protecting 30,000 desperate refugees. We also come to know Duiker, the Imperial Historian, witness to events both inspirational and despicable.

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.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* The second of the projected 10 volumes of the Malazan Book of the Fallen raises the stakes set by Gardens of the Moon [BKL My 15 04]. From the Holy Desert Raraku, in the land of the Seven Cities, the seer Sha'ik sends her followers out on a holy war known as the Whirlwind. It bears more than a passing resemblance to the current violent Islamic jihad, but Erikson's scholarship is sufficiently thorough to enable him to avoid simpleminded likeness making. His imagination is also sufficient to bring the setting of the Seven Cities vividly to life, although his realism is rather literally gritty, including a great deal of sand and gravel that will inevitably recall for some readers a country in which American troops are now fighting. The opposition to the Whirlwind is varied but includes the inevitable mercenaries, limned in the manner that stems from David Drake's sf and in fantasy is practiced particular skillfully by Glen Cook. Erikson is making his dark characters and grisly battles very much his own, however, and fantasy readers with a strong appetite for world building and action ought to enjoy his efforts. Whether they'll stay for all 10 volumes is another matter, but so far, so good. Roland Green
