Deadhouse Gates (The Malazan Book of the Fallen #2) 18, Apr

5/5 stars.

For those who have read Gardens of the Moon and thought it was relatively tame for grimdark fantasy, Deadhouse Gates will change your mind.  This sequel took the series to new heights and was also when I wholly begun to understand the opening quote of Erikson in the debut.  The violence, and brutality evident in this book made me rethink of how I viewed A Song of Ice and Fire. 

Gardens of the Moon (The Malazan Book of the Fallen, #1) 15, Apr

5/5 stars.

Gardens of the Moon is the overture to The Malazan Book of the Fallen, providing just a glimmer of what this massive, grimdark epic fantasy tale has to offer, which was best described below in the author's own words.
