Description

In Northern Genabackis, a raiding party of savage tribal warriors descends from the mountains into the southern flatlands. Their intention is to wreak havoc amongst the despised lowlanders, but for the one named Karsa Orlong it marks the beginning of what will prove to be an extraordinary destiny.
Some years later, it is the aftermath of the Chain of Dogs. Tavore, the Adjunct to the Empress, has arrived in the last remaining Malazan stronghold of Seven Cities. New to command, she must hone twelve thousand soldiers, mostly raw recruits but for a handful of veterans of Coltaine's legendary march, into a force capable of challenging the massed hordes of Sha'ik's Whirlwind who lie in wait in the heart of the Holy Desert.
But waiting is never easy. The seer's warlords are locked into a power struggle that threatens the very soul of the rebellion, while Sha'ik herself suffers, haunted by the knowledge of her nemesis: her own sister, Tavore.
And so begins this awesome new chapter in Steven Erikson's acclaimed Malazan Book of the Fallen . . .

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 10, 2006 – Longtime fans may be surprised by the fourth book in Erikson's masterful fantasy epic that began with Gardens of the Moon (2004), because the long opening section follows a single character, the Teblor warrior Karsa Orlong, and his companions on a gory raid through enemy territory and into the human lowlands of Northern Genabackis. The time-hopping, perspective-shifting, looping story lines typical of this Canadian author return later, as Erikson ties Karsa's actions to the ultimate showdown between the forces of the Malazan Empire and Sha'ik's Army of the Apocalypse. Against a backdrop of brutal power struggles, the stubbornly determined Karsa is able to accomplish more than even he could have imagined. Unusual among fantasy writers, Erikson succeeds in making readers empathize equally with all sides involved in his world's vast, century-spanning conflict. Newcomers will eagerly seek out previous books in the series.

House of Chains: Erickson Unchained

For those unfamiliar with this series: go read Gardens of the Moon. You won't be disappointed, and it will eventually lead you to this; the best book in the series so far, and the triumphant culmination of what began in Deadhouse Gates.
If Memories of Ice left you confused and disappointed, don't lose heart: the epic scope of this book will astound you. The cardboard cutout characters of Thelomen Toblakai and Leoman truly take shape and form. Erickson manages to approach an almost Martinesque quality in his characterizations of the forces of Light, Dark, and Shadow: all three forces have depth, intrigue, and there is no true hero or villain; indeed, the forces of Light may surprise you with their uncompromising world views and capacity for treachery.
Erickson's creative spirit and storytelling truly come unchained. With every revealed mystery, however, come more questions. No easy answers here, nor simple paths to absolution or glory. House of Chains is a progression of both an excellent story and a writer's skill; neither will disappoint you.

Awesome

This series is a great read.
