Bauchelain and Korbal Broach (The First Collected Tales) by Steven Erikson - Book Review 29, Nov

 The world of the Malazan Empire is among the most complex fantasy worlds ever created. Very few would disagree with this, even those in the fantasy community who hold onto a firm dislike for Erikson’s storytelling style. I admire the world and characters; the complexity of both is second to none and I have within my mind’s eye, expanses of scenes as tragic as they are heroic, as cruel as they are hopeful.

4/5 stars.

With Rejoice: A Knife to the Heart, Erikson holds up a mirror for all of humanity.

Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen #1) 03, Aug

Rating: 4.25/5 stars

I admit it. I never read Malazan. I’ve waited until now to take my first foray into Steven Erikson’s sprawling world. My first stop: Gardens of the Moon.
