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 . . .

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.
This series is a great read.
