This is part seven of the Malazan Book of the Fallen series, and a direct continuation of the earlier books (so pretty much unreadable without reading the earlier six books). In this book we get to spend time with both the Bonehunters and the Letherii/Tiste Edur empire, while also catching up with other characters like Quick Ben, Tool and Toc.
I really enjoy how the storylines from previous books are starting to come together, and how every little piece of the puzzle influences another piece somewhere else. This also changed my outlook on the bigger story arc of the Crippled God, and I can’t wait to see where all this is going. Four out of five stars.
