5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, 3 Feb. 2003
I first came across Steven Erikson some 2 years ago and after completing Gardens of the Moon I was a committed fan. Every successive book has only served to reinforce my opinion that he is one of the most original and captivating fantasy autors that I have ever had the pleasure to read. The House of Chains has managed to surpass even all my expectations, and after Deadhouse Gates they were very high indeed. From the novella in the first 150 pages through to the unfolding of some of the plans of the Crippled God, this book was unletdownable. Erikson rightly deserves much more credit for his work than Jordan, who I consider a much inferior author. This book has everything that makes a great novel, both from a fantastical sense and from a literary sense. There is no overwhelming subterfuge at work trying to confuse the reader, each book gives more elaborate and indepth insights into what goes on in the twisted pantheon of the MAlazan Empire. A must read....

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 9 July 2002
I decided to read this series of books based on the recommendations on this website... two weeks and all 4 books read ( and as any reader will tell you, no small feat) I was absolutely blown away by it. This is one of the best series I have come accross in Fantasy Fiction. Stephen Ericson's Malazan empire and David Farlands Runelords series have topped by best loved fantasy books lately but this series puts them firmly in second place.
This book actually gave me goose pimples a few times from sheer excitement and disbelief...all four books are fantastic reads. If you have a love for court intrigue and enjoy characters of truly altruistic personalitys, then buy this series. You won't regret it.
