Gardens of the Moon (The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Book 1)

Steven Erikson

The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by means of interminable war, sour infighting and bloody confrontations. Even the imperial legions, lengthy inured to the bloodshed, yearn for a few respite. but Empress Laseen's rule continues to be absolute, enforced by means of her dread Claw assassins.

For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, surviving cadre mage of the second one Legion, the aftermath of the siege of light must have been a time to mourn the various lifeless. yet Darujhistan, final of the loose towns of Genabackis, but holds out. it's to this historic fortress that Laseen turns her predatory gaze.

However, it can seem that the Empire isn't really on my own during this nice video game. Sinister, shadowbound forces are accumulating because the gods themselves arrange to play their hand . . .

Conceived and written on a breathtaking scale, Gardens of the Moon is epic fable of the top order--an enchanting event via an exceptional new voice.
