Reaper's Gale (Malazan Book of the Fallen, #7) 26, Aug

4.5/5 stars.

I will not be the first to extoll the astounding breadth and depth of the Malazan world with its deep history, a multitude of races, richly diverse cultures and a huge cast of characters.  I may also not be the first to admit how lost I sometimes feel, wandering through this labyrinth of intricate worldbuilding.
