Reviews

A young barbarian warrior of the Uryd tribe of the Teblor people accompanies his comrades on a raid into the lowlands and begins an unexpected journey that takes him to strange lands and an even stranger destiny. As the armies of the Shai'k gather in the Holy Desert for their war of conquest against the city of Aren, the last stronghold of the Malazan Empire, a newly arrived adjunct to the empress attempts to train a fighting force able to withstand the coming invasion. In the latest addition to his Malazan series (Gardens of the Moon; Deadhouse Gates), Erikson crafts a multilayered tale of magic and war, loyalty and betrayal. Complexly drawn characters occupy a richly detailed world in this panoramic saga, which should appeal to fans of epic and military fantasy as well as series followers.

In Steven Erikson's House of Chains: A Tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, the fourth volume in the Canadian author's epic fantasy series (Gardens of the Moon, etc.), the Malazan stronghold of Seven Cities faces attack from the massed armies of Sha'ik's Whirlwind. Robert Jordan and George R.R. Martin fans will find Erikson a reasonably satisfying substitute. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

"Truly epic in scope., Erikson has no peer when it comes to action and imagination, and joins the ranks of Tolkien and Donaldson in his mythic vision and perhaps then goes one better." --SF Site on House of Chains"A multilayered tale of magic and war, loyalty and betrayal. Complexly drawn characters occupy a richly detailed world in this panoramic saga.." --Library Journal on House of Chains"This is true myth in the making, a drawing upon fantasy to recreate histories and legends as rich as any found within our culture." --Interzone on House of Chains
