In Northern Genabackis, a raiding party of savage tribal warriors descends from the mountains into the southern flatlands. Their intention is to wreak havoc amongst the despised lowlanders, but for the one named Karsa Orlong it marks the beginning of what will prove to be an extraordinary destiny.            Some years later, it is the aftermath of the Chain of Dogs. Tavore, the Adjunct to the Empress, has arrived in the last remaining Malazan stronghold of Seven Cities. New to command, she must hone twelve thousand soldiers, mostly raw recruits but for a handful of veterans of Coltaine's legendary march, into a force capable of challenging the massed hordes of Sha'ik's Whirlwind who lie in wait in the heart of the Holy Desert.But waiting is never easy. The seer's warlords are locked into a power struggle that threatens the very soul of the rebellion, while Sha'ik herself suffers, haunted by the knowledge of her nemesis: her own sister, Tavore.            And so begins this awesome new chapter in Steven Erikson's acclaimed Malazan Book of the Fallen . . .

And nature ever strives for balance. But balance was not a simple notion. Redress was not simply found in the physical world. A far grimmer equilibrium had occurred ... between the past and the present.

4.0 Memories of Ice (Malazan Book of the Fallen, #3) and House of Chains (#4) by Steven Erikson
This series is killing me. I am obsessed. My library only has up to book 6, but I am seriously going to buy the entire 10 book series (and the companion series set in the same world by Erikson's partner in crime Ian C. Esslemont.) I kind of dislike reviewing books in the middle of series, obviousl...

3.5 Slow reading this one, but awesome conclusion, as usual
The beginning of this book really didn't work for me. I forced my way through due to the goodwill created by my enjoyment of the previous books, and having been pre-warned by fans of previous series. Over one hundred pages at the beginning of the book of one character: Karsa Orlong. And he's real...
