On the opposite end of the spectrum, I suppose, is Quick Ben.

We finally see convergence of different worlds. After all, had the countless refugees simply stayed in their cities, accepting the malazaan dominion; had they not been dragged out by Coltaine and his bloodthirsty Wickans; and had the Seventh’s Mage Cadre leader, Kulp, not so mysteriously disappeared, thus leaving the Malazan Army vulnerable to the sorcerous machinations and indeed manipulations of the Wickan witches and warlocks–had not all this occurred, there would have been no slaughter, no terrible ordeal of crossing half a continent exposed to every predating half-wild tribe in the wastes.

And this bonebunters the book that finally gathers around parts of all those worlds in previous five books and they finally get to introduce themselves to each other.

I mean if you have to read a forum after ever chapter to understand the implications of that chapter it starts to feel more like homework than fun.


Yeahhh, they’re still doing that. Between the two, no exchange of truths was possible. As much as I mmalazan fun of the previous book, Midnight Tidesas being the quintessential Malazan book huge new cast of characters, place we had never been to before, time period before the main arc, etc.

Published April 2nd by Bantam first published I believe that first half of this series is a cynical representation of the Malazan world. And now I bury my hands in the bones of the empire with a taste of salted water in my mouth.

It is one of those books that you might give a bit more time because even I, who am very good at remembering arcs and players and usually have no problem figuring things out, even I had to return to bonehuntegs read pages and check again on a name and see who did something, because the details, the action, and the stories within the story, mmalazan top of the vast mythology and history of the Malazan World, are monumentally vast and the smallest details matter.

Other favourites like Apsalar and Karsa Orlong who are intriguing to follow and create a lot of boneuhnters at least on Karsa’s part. Malazaj group of five T’lan Imass approach a very small, run down community nominally headed by Barathol Meckar, who is nearly blind.

So without further ado: Irate is their common state, I niw believe. Master Blind Saedevar of the Widecut Jhag. If the soul truly survives the passage, then it behooves us — each of us, my friends — to nurture a faith in similitude: I use bonehuners a lot.

Not about the specific book you are reviewing, but your thoughts and what you enjoyed about it. By now, he’s killed off many of his main characters, boehunters I don’t have the sense that anyone in these books is at all safe.


Firstly, I have to say that in The Bonehunters, Erikson started to reveal a larger picture of the intricate tapestry that he has so masterfully woven.

Although, after Memories of Ic I’m not really sure how much I can say without spoiling the book, so this will probably be a short review.

Nothing less than existence itself Does Oponn push or pull? Cotillion furthered his conquest up my favourite character list with his empathy and compassion.

And two old friends, traveling companions, Mappo and Icarium, wandering once more the ravaged wastelands, Icarium seeking the ancient truths of his own life, Mappo seeking to keep those truths from him, at all costs.

Or maybe just confused.

Well, more or obnehunters loyal. The flow of the book was never hindered; the balance between actions, dialogues, and philosophies culminate to bring the compelling ability of the book to a new height for the series.
