4.0 out of 5 stars ICE finds his mark ?, 25 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stonewielder (Malazan Empire 3) (Hardcover)
Ok well, as a huge fan of the Malazan Books of the Fallen, I have found Ian Esslemont's 2 previous offerings a bit hard going, something just didn't seem to gel with them, and I couldn't quite put my finger on it.

Knight of Knives was a decent read, but a bit laboured in places, Return of the Crimson Guard plain confused me in parts.

Then we have this. Stonewielder is great, it flows nicely and has all the hallmarks of a great addition to a great series. Nice character development and fleshing out of of ideas and events familiar to readers of the main series. I think with this Ian has found his writing rhythm. Sure it is not perfect, and in places leaves more unanswered questions than it answers, but that can only bode well for future tomes.

The doubter has been answered, keep up the good work Ian, this one is a winner.
