Epic Fantasy: Malazan Empire




The third thrilling epic fantasy from Steven Erikson's friend and co-creator of the world of Malaz.

As various mysterious forces, sects and vested interests jockey for position and power, long-hidden secrets are revealed and ancient entities once more walk abroad. It seems there will be a monumental reckoning from which none will emerge unscathed...
