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.
Loved this to pieces. From characters and setting, to prose and pace, every single aspect of the book was magnificent. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. There's no point of reviewing such a popular book though, so I'll simply share some of my thoughts for people who have already read it. Spoilers ahead!
A breathtaking conclusion to an outstanding series; the Malazan Book of the Fallen is a masterpiece of its genre and has affirmed its place as my favourite epic grimdark fantasy series.
