Publisher Comments:

In war everyone loses.  This brutal truth can be seen in the eyes of every soldier in every world…

 

In Letherii, the exiled Malazan army commanded by Adjunct Tavore begins its march into the eastern Wastelands, to fight for an unknown cause against an enemy it has never seen.

And in these same Wastelands, others gather to confront their destinies.  The warlike Barghast, thwarted in their vengeance against the Tiste Edur, seek new enemies beyond the border and Onos Toolan, once immortal Tlan Imass now mortal commander of the White Face clan, faces insurrection.  To the south, the Perish Grey Helms parlay passage through the treacherous kingdom of Bolkando.  Their intention is to rendezvous with the Bonehunters but their vow of allegiance to the Malazans will be sorely tested.  And ancient enclaves of an Elder Race are in search of salvation—not among their own kind, but among humans—as an old enemy draws ever closer to the last surviving bastion of the KChain CheMalle.

 

So this last great army of the Malazan Empire is resolved to make one final defiant, heroic stand in the name of redemption.  But can deeds be heroic when there is no one to witness them?  And can that which is not witnessed forever change the world?  Destines are rarely simple, truths never clear but one certainty is that time is on no ones side.  For the Deck of Dragons has been read, unleashing a dread power that none can comprehend…

 

In a faraway land and beneath indifferent skies, the final chapter of ‘The Malazan Book of the Fallen has begun…

Review:

"Ragged armies and gods old and new collide in the dizzyingly complex penultimate tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen (following 2008's Toll the Hounds). After a traumatic reading of the tiles, Adjunct Tagore of the Malazan decides to quit the Letherii capital. To placate neighboring territories, Brys Beddict and a contingent of Letherii escort Tagore and her army through the Wastelands on their way to the port of Kolanse. The Barghast find their own reasons to head for the Wastelands, as do the T'lan Imass, a group of bloodthirsty Jaghut, and the army of the K'Chain Che'Malle. Gods tweak the players on this continent-sized chess board even as they themselves are manipulated. Erickson begins to reel in the long lines of his huge plot, giving enough hints to leave readers impatient for the 10th volume." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
