5.0 out of 5 stars Not Erikson, but is that a bad thing?, 10 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Night Of Knives: A Novel Of The Malazan Empire (Mass Market Paperback)
I've had this book for about a year, finally got round to reading it, having read the whole of Erikson's Malazan decalogy first. Is it the same? No, it's not - but I've got to be honest, I don't think that's a bad thing. There are so many plot lines and characters in Erikson's books that by the time I got to The Crippled God it was making my brain hurt to try and keep track of all the different threads.

The big difference in Night of Knives is that it follows a small group of characters through a very tightly bound scenario. I found this much easier to read and frankly a lot more enjoyable. If you want something as complicated as Erikson then the Otherland series by Tad Williams should hit the spot. If you're after a lighter read set in the Malazan world then Esslemont delivers very impressively.
