There will be slaughter. Yet another apocalypse on Raraku's restless sands. It is as it should be.

For those who have read Gardens of the Moon and thought it was relatively tame for grimdark fantasy series, 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.
