The elders were powerful and dreadful it was a blessing their days were over Only a fool or an insane power craving He shook his head once again this time in exasperation Ah I received an advanced review copy of Kellanved s Reach in exchange for an honest review I would like to thank Ian C Esselmont and TransworldBooks Penguin Books UK Before I start the review proper I will uickly state that I am uite lucky as a reviewer because of some of the books I get to read early Ever so often a book arrives on your doorstep and everything else ceases to exist until a certain novel has been completed This was one such occasion I was deep through Mark Lawrence s Holy Sister and John Gwynne s A Time of Blood by far two of my favourite authors but the works of Erikson and Esslemont and the world they ve created is incomparable and the pinnacle of not just fantasy but current literature in general I had to drop everything and start this immediately Originally touted as being a trilogy I can safely say that the way this book ends we will have a lot in store in this preuel series but I ll come back to that shortly Kellanved now the ruler of Malaz with his friend the dexterous and handily swift assassin Dancer continue the shadowy Mage s conuest for utter world domination Kellanved found a flint spearhead at the end of Deadhouse Landing and believes it is the key to unlock an elder mystery and obtain and perhaps even control an overwhelming ancient power that could tip the balance in his favour to aid his plan even though nobody is truly aware of what he wants to accomplish Not even Dancer I would say 25% of the narrative follows the exploits of my favourite fantasy duo but like all Malazan books you cannot rest on your laurels with what you already know About another 100 new characters are introduced As if there weren t already enough in this behemothic but amazing fantasy experience For anyone who has and if you haven t I recommend you do read the main series before you ll be happy that many of the series superstars and most important players are featured and and are introduced The main body of the force was some thirty Malazan fighters hand picked and led by Dassem and including their early recruit Dujek and his shadow Jack Tasyschrenn stood with DancerSpoiler So many great moments I ve really been waiting for are revealed here Such as how Whiskeyjack earned his name how Greymane joined the Malazan Empire and why Shimmer is such a bad ass Apart from Dancer and Kellanved s story it seems war is waging everywhere and we witness events from both sides of multiple battles that are happening concurrently Typical to Malazan generally there are no black or white good or bad guys during point of view perspectives so you feel for the players on both sides To begin with it was confusing as to who had an allegiance with who and what their reuired end game was and what their objectives were At about 30% it all clicked and then it seemed to flow expertly After reading 60% of this book and reading some stunning set pieces in my opinion up there with some of the best in the overall Malazan canon I couldn t put this book down and I couldn t see this book getting less than a 910 Dancer s Lament had 3 point of view perspectives Silk Iko and Dancer This new entry has approximately 15 As previously hinted at with unfamiliar character perspectives it takes a few of their passages to work out where they fit on the board of the greater game but all will come clear I don t think there was a single perspective I didn t enjoy These included Dancer s friend and blind bird lady Ullara who is wandering without knowing what fate has in store Gregor and his mage accomplice who cannot be hit who both wish to join the Crimson Guard and war commander Orjin who really doesn t know his place in this waring world at the moment but just knows he can aid somehow We see brief but excellent snippets of The Crimson Guard hierarchy before K azz D Avore was commander and seeing his character at this stage was really interesting Warning I made the typical newbie mistake There was a new character who I wasn t familiar with who seemed like a stunning creation so I Googled his name and was told who he d become and what his alias is and that he s very important in later novels Do not make the same mistake On many forums there are often heated debates of the best way to start the Malazan series to get the best experience I personally think there are 5 ways to start but that s an unpopular view After reading this the image of Ouroboros came to my mind If you start with the Path of Ascendancy series then Gardens of the Moon won t be so difficult However if you don t read the main series first then you ll miss the amazing reveals and air fist bump moments which I m sad to admit happened a lot whilst I was reading this book so made me look like a lunatic to my housemateSo why didn t it get five stars It was doing everything perfectly until the ending There is nothing wrong with what actually happens at the climax but it seemed a bit muddled and out of order for me There is a stunning set piece the typical BOOM wow that was amazing Malazan finale experience Then it spent about 6% of the book wrapping other characters arcs off I must admit these chapters were done well but it completely disjointed the pacing and experience It was almost as if we d had the finale and Esslemont was just tidying up a few threads before moving on It might be my personal opinion but I enjoy the explosive climatic culmination to be the final segment in a novel and that I then will not be able to stop thinking about it for weeks This is perhaps just personal taste though To conclude the works of Malazan are by far my favourite fantasy series and experience I ve had with reading period I rate uite harshly on this site because I don t think I ll ever read a book again that is as good as Midnight Tides which is my only 1010 rating I don t need to do a sexy statement for a blurb here If you are reading this you know how good this series and Malazan in general is Pre order it now
