Toll the Hounds (Malazan Book of the Fallen, #8) 22, Sep

5/5 stars.

In a series replete with epic endings, this eighth chapter of the Malazan Book of the Fallen contains, to date, the most epic one of all.  It is with much joy that I can finally, upon rereading, upgrade this book as one of my favourites. 

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.

The Bonehunters (Malazan Book of the Fallen, #6) 28, Jul

5/5 stars. 

The Book of the Fallen really hit its stride coming into the sixth chapter of this massive tale.
