even better than GOTM,
This review is from: Memories of Ice (Book 3 of The Malazan Book of the Fallen) (Mass Market Paperback)
ok let me start by saying that this is what i thought deadhouse gates would be, a straight continuation from GOTM. so i had to wait an extra book, so what. this book is huge and to match that the stakes are equally huge.
several characters return some of whom i never thought i'd see again, and we have some great new characters, including gruntle, itkovian and lady envy. the best though is probably captain paran, and i know alot of you will say that he isn't a new character that he is a returning charachter but beleive me when i say he is so different and prominent that he might as well be a new character.
again i gotta say the ending really hits home hard, you'll see what i mean. also more is revealed about ascendants and the rolls they play not to mention the crippled god features more prominently.
and again the sorcery and battles are second to none. i gotta say one scene where a wizard transports the contents of a waterskin into the lungs of an enemy mage is just genius on the part of the author.
again another brilliant book and i hope the remaining books in the series are released with as mcu hhaste as is humanly possible.
