Epic Fantasy: Malazan Empire
The third thrilling epic fantasy from Steven Erikson's friend and co-creator of the world of Malaz.
Picking up the story a few years after the events of Return of the Crimson Guard, Stonewielder centres on the character of Greymane, one of the Malazan army's most revered commanders whose prowess in the field earned him the name 'Stonewielder'.
