After decades of internecine warfare, the tribes of the Tiste Edur have at last united under the Warlock King of the Hiroth, There is peace--but it has been exacted at a terrible price: a pact made with a hidden power whose motives are at best suspect, at worst deadly. To the south, the expansionist kingdom of Lether, eager to fulfill its long-prophesized renaissance as an Empire reborn, has enslaved all its less-civilized neighbors with rapacious hunger. All, that is, save one--the Tiste Edur. And it must be only a matter of time before they too fall--either beneath the suffocating weight of gold, or by slaughter at the edge of a sword. Or so destiny has decreed.  Yet as the two sides gather for a pivotal treaty neither truly wants, ancient forces are awakening.  For the impending struggle between these two peoples is but a pale reflection of a far more profound, primal battle--a confrontation with the still-raw wound of an old betrayal and the craving for revenge at its seething heart.

From the ridiculous mindset of the Lothari Empire held together by a stringent and cruel ultr...

4.5 A look into Trull Sengar's past
When I began this book, I was quickly confused. I was pleased to see the familiar character, Trull Sengar, but found him to be in circumstances completely different than those in which we'd left him. I had to do a bit of googling to confirm my suspicion: This book takes place before the previous b...

2.0 Midnight Tides
Problems with the book: Everybody is a philosopher, every single person with POV. The usual structure of the book is the following: 5 pager worth of philosophical inner thoughts of a character following by 1 page of some action; I do not mean kick-the-crap-out-of-everybody action, just the acts of d...
