The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting and bloody confrontations with the formidable Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii, ancient and implacable sorcerers. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen's rule remains absolute, enforced by her dread Claw assassins.
For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, surviving cadre mage of the Second Legion, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities of Genabackis, yet holds out. It is to this ancient citadel that Laseen turns her predatory gaze.
However, it would appear that the Empire is not alone in this great game. Sinister, shadowbound forces are gathering as the gods themselves prepare to play their hand...
Conceived and written on a panoramic scale, Gardens of the Moon is epic fantasy of the highest order--an enthralling adventure by an outstanding new voice.

Why all the negativity? I understood everything that was going on through the whole book and loved it, some of the most detailed characters I've red about. Note this isn't one of those book where you can read a couple of pages and come back 2 weeks later and know exactly what's going on you have to be a fairly consistent reader and not skip around in the book, if you do you WILL be lost. Excellent series I recommend it to everybody who knows how to read ;)

Excellent! A little hard to follow at first, but then hard to put down.
At first I was just going along with the book as it started off slow, now I'm wondering what happened to yesterday lol. Great book, I just ordered the next few books in the series and eagerly await their arrival.
