Malazan Book of the Fallen #03: Memories of Ice by Steven Erikson
Malazan Book of the Fallen #03: Memories of Ice

Russell, September 23, 2006

Like the rest of this series, "Memories of Ice" is epic in scope, but it surpasses its predecessors in the area of character development. I connected much more with the struggles of these characters as they literally evolved throughout the book. Highly recommended for fans of intricately built worlds with multiple plotlines. Not recommended for fans of fantasy that prefer books that follow a few main characters in a very linear fashion through an adventure. Erikson makes you work, but you love him for it.
