Deadhouse Gates 28, Sep

I really enjoyed Gardens of the Moon, although I found it to be a very slow and tedious read. I had heard such amazing things about this series. I was excited to move on to Deadhouse Gates, ready to dive into the meat that makes this series famous. But in Deadhouse Gates, I was disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, Erikson penned a meticulously crafted world with compelling characters who—since some are carried forward from the last book—feel like old friends. It was the new friends I had a problem with.

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.
