Bled dry by interminable warfare, infighting and bloody confrontations with Lord Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii, the vast, sprawling Malazan empire simmers with discontent. Even its imperial legions yearn for some respite. This is a novel in which a design, a mythology, wild and wayward magic and a host of characters combine with storytelling.

 The beginning of something great...

This is the first book in a series of 10. Eight have been published so far, a long with an ever increasing number of companion novels. It is vast, the world of Erikson and Esselmont.

This is not just a fantasy epic, it is also written extremely well. The language in the book flows like poetry and the dialogue is superb.

All the characters are well made and fully fleshed, you'll find no stick figures here, and most of them are extremely likeable. But sometimes you'll find youself hating the good guys and routing for the bad guys. But that's how Erikson rolls, with a lot of twists and turns and never a dull moment.

In this book, we are immediately placed at the Siege of Pale and witness one of many betrayals committed against the infamous Bridgeburners, a special company in the Malazan Army notorious for their skills in battle, their ability to survive, their loyalty and sometimes theor ruthlessness.

We follow a small group of Bridgeburners on their adventures on a strange continent. They encounter enemies, both known and unknown, from within and without, dragons, Jaghut Tyrants, Tiste Andii and a little girl possessed by the Patron God of Assassins.

Yes, things tend to get messy when the gods enter the fray.

We also see the beginning of a much larger war, one that could potentially destroy the whole world. A war not only between oppsoing human armies, but between opposing gods.

And at the core of this war? The Fallen One...

Don't miss out on this gripping tale, that will let you glimpse into the minds of humans and gods alike, take you right onto the battlefield and let you feel the magic as it washes over you and destroys everything in its path.

A hefty tomb to start with and by the writing style one that takes some getting into. Not an easy read, but all the better for it. It continually swings back and forth, with plot and sub plot, if you are not up to books with lots of diverse things happening and remembering whats happening, this is not the book for you. If you can keep up with the many twists its exilerating and rewarding as the story continually gathers pace, leading forward, introducing new characters and building on what we already know of those we have already met. The writing is very dense in places with a lot of information given out. But i feel its all the better for it. You are not spoon fed, you are expected to accept that some things have already happened and not be led through it. For me a great read, it gets tough but stick with it and reap the rewards. Roll on the next instalment.

 Love fantasy? Then prepare to be amazed.

This is the first book in what will one day be regarded as the No. 1 Fantasy series. It is gritty, complicated and will leave you feeling bewildered and lost, but that's okay, its all part of the plan...Erikson is a true master with the skill of Donaldson the characterisation of Martin and the awe inspiring world building of Tolkien and on all these points he triumphs. I was blown away by gardens of the moon. I think you should give it a go. BTW I am in no way affiliated with the publishers, my mate told me to write a review or he'd brain me. Have fun.
