The penultimate book in one of the most original, exciting and acclaimed fantasy series of the new century...
From the Inside Flap
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 K'Chain Che'Malle. 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? Destinies 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 power that none can comprehend
In a faraway land and beneath indifferent skies, the final chapter has begun to close on the awesome Tales of the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
