    Kathryn Harrison: IMG On Joan of Arc: A Life Transfigured



    I'm always sorry to finish a book, to let go of characters I love, people I've struggled to understand for years, people who evolve before me.... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ravaged continent of Genabackis has given birth to a terrifying new empire: the Pannion Domin. Like a tide of corrupted blood, it seethes across the land, devouring all. In its path stands an uneasy alliance: Onearm's army and Whiskeyjack's Bridgeburners alongside their enemies of old — the forces of the Warlord Caladan Brood, Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii mages, and the Rhivi people of the plains.

But ancient undead clans are also gathering; the T'lan Imass have risen. For it would seem something altogether darker and more malign threatens this world. Rumors abound that the Crippled God is now unchained and intent on a terrible revenge.

Marking the return of many characters from Gardens of the Moon and introducing a host of remarkable new players, Memories of Ice is both a momentous new chapter in Steven Erikson's magnificent epic fantasy and a triumph of storytelling.

Review:

"Battle dominates the gripping third installment of Canadian Erikson's projected 10-volume series (Gardens of the Moon, etc.), set in the land of Malazan and featuring a host of gods, grunt soldiers, wizards and undead. Ganoes Paran is now captain of the Bridgeburners, part of Dujek Onearm's army that's trying to fight off the vile forces of the Pannion Domin. The author vividly details the horrors of hand-to-hand combat along with the cannibalistic tendencies of the Tenescowri (or peasant) rabble that fight for the Pannion Domin. The most intriguing new character is Itkovian, a commander of the mercenary Grey Swords who finds, after the battle of Capustan, that his god has deserted him. For a giant fantasy series, this is tightly written, with no repetitious dialogue or exposition. Erikson ranks near the top of the epic fantasy pantheon. Agent, Howard Morhaim. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"The long volume is the third in a saga that owes a good deal to Tolkien, but many may find the size of its canvas and cast, its vivid details, and the emotional intensity of its action appealing in ways that Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time is appealing." Booklist

Review:

"Easily one of the best books of the year. Steven Erikson has infused new life into one of the oldest traditions of fiction, and has done so in a manner that genuinely captures and reinterprets the spirit of the original Greek and Norse sagas." SFSite.com

Review:

"Overdosed on Harry? Had it with hobbits? Steven Erikson's sweeping 10-volume series...might be just the fantasy epic that adult readers have been longing for....Erikson is...a weaver of ancient epics on a scale that would approach absurdity if it wasn't so much fun." Salon.com

Review:

"An epic in every sense of the word....The worlds of mortals and gods meet in what is a truly awe-inspiring clash." Enigma

Synopsis:

Marking the return of many characters from Gardens of the Moon and introducing a host of remarkable new players, this novel is both a momentous new chapter in Erikson's magnificent epic fantasy and a triumph of storytelling.
