Stared Out Into The 
out into the wisps of mist and the strangely dull stars and he remembered that other night The night close to a year ago when he and Dassem died You know you are deep into the Malazan Book of the Fallen when you buy all the books before reaching the series half oint add Forge of Darkness because the new trilogy is sort of a reuel duh and then for good measure you make sure you have Esslemont s books too Because who knows you might run out of Malaz material and of course you have to read them in order So Here I Am Reading Esslemont I am reading Esslemont Night of Knives as advised by other readers after Erikson s Midnight Tides #Does it belong here Chronologically no If you want to read it that #it belong here Chronologically no If you want to read it that you should start with Gardens of the Moon and then after the rologue read this one and than go back and read the rest of Gardens Don t do it this way though or you ll go mad It s impossible to read at least Erikson s books this way the books overlap chronologically as they often happen on different continents often with a whole new set of characters and the crazy thing is I don t mind It s messy but I love it that waySo this is by almost everyone s opinion the weakest book in the combined series Erikson Esslemont I didn t read all the books and I can t judge to that account but it is the weakest one I ve read This isn t a bad book It has it s great moments a fair number On the other hand had I not read a few of Erikson s books first getting into the world history and characters of Malazan this book wouldn t be as half as good for meI know Erikson is Erikson and Esslemont is Esslemont and I went into it with that in mind but it was a bumpy ride all the same What I liked Kiska nodded glanced to the ceiling It s uiet Tayschrenn s shoulders tightened at that The Malazan way he breathed The murderer s touch A brush of cloth A sip of wine The gleam of a blade as fine as a snake s tooth Your name whispered just as you fall into sleep He shook his head as if sad or regretful There was back story of Lightning Over Bennett Ranch past events and we met some characters we already know Parts featuring Dassem Ultor the return of Kellanved and Dancer No one could match Dancer The man was an artist at murder In fact so subtle was he that many had forgotten that Kellanved had aartner The worst kind of killer the kind no one notices And the slippery bastard was supposed to be dead too Surly and her Claws and Tayschrenn were a treat Who would know Tayschrenn could be an interesting character with a different side to himThe descriptions of Malaz City before during and after the haunting night of the once in a generation event known as shadow Moon Esslemont should try and write horrorI would read it I could almost feel that mist and fog and hear the howling of the houndsGreat descriptions of the ice and stormy seas and the dusty desolate Shadow RealmLoved some of the new characters I ve read just five Erikson s books they are new for me like Edgewalker Agayla Obo and Temper I liked The Fisherman s scenes and his wifeLiked the final Sri Sumarah, Pariyem dan Bu Bei part of the epilogue with the StormriderLoved that the the book begins with Mock s Vane as in Gardens of the Moon On it sike at Temper s side Mock s Vane the winged demon shaped weathervane shook and hummed as if caught in a steady gale Temper frowned at the old relic the winds were calm this evening and ends with it and I hear it closes the Malazan Empire of the Fallen series too I ll confirm it for myself just five 900 Class Struggles pages books easyeasy He rubbed his shoulder and flexed his leg all the time grimacing At least he was in no danger of falling asleep what with half his body yammering its Wilfred Owen (Routledge Revivals) pain at him Down the wall Mock s Vane stood silent on itsike Temper eyed it the damn thing appeared frozen athwart the wind He turned away from the day s glare to ease into what always got him through the day watching the sea Down below the bay glimmered calmly The Strait seemed to be holding its breath It could have ended then and there Great well I admit the epilogue was Study to Teach pretty good especially the closingartFavorite Global Corporations in Global Governance partrobably the fateful encounter in Mock s Hold loved it Heard guessed but not witnessed All there and still a mystery Tayschrenn raised a finger to his lips Listen Kiska strained to Angels in Harmony penetrate the uiet The subtle throb of the surf shuddered through the rock Dust falling and the stones losing heat to the night brought ticks and trickled motes from the walls Then she heard it A distinct tap and faint shush tap shush tap shush crossing the ceiling side to side Kellanved The limestone blocks of the ceiling jerked then like child s toys and dust showered down The soundless impact drove Kiska down into her chair andopped her eardrums The candles snuffed out Metal rang from the stones above Weapons Kiska imagined A thumping and clatter as of bodies falling A shout a wordless roar of rage that faded into silence In the charged. The empire is named for the tiny island and city of Malaz now a sleepy seedy backwater ort Tonight however Calm that followed she barely breathed Perfect What #i liked a little less i ll admit #liked a little less I ll admit love Erikson s convoluted way of storytelling He makes you work for it and I love a challenge and the layers Esslemont basically doesn t make scratch your head he is straightforward with his writing This is not a bad thing and someone else may The Princess and the Three Knights prefer this style I like my Ah a moments when everything falls inlace even if it takes three books to do soThe Stormriders didn t convince me much They were described so grandly and then we learn they have wands Wands Am I reading Harry Potter The wands almost ruined them for me Nice save in the epilogue and I hope I hear of no wands in this books any They are so anticlimactic after all those great magic battles described in some of Ericson s books I love my wands where they belong in the HP books I like them thereKiska What to say about Kiska I get it she is a teenager and so she acts accordingly In that sense of a no sense teenager she was well written She doesn t really know what she want s besides getting as far away from the forgotten The Beauty of Believing place Malaz Isle has become she is stubborn reckless and doesn t know when and with whom to hold her tongue be it a ghost a greatowerful mage or a creature from the Shadow Realm Kiska fairly wailed But what of Kell the throne I am sorry That is a minor concern given everything at stake this Conjunction Minor Kiska believed she could hear the dried flesh at its neck creak as the head turned to her Yes In the larger icture I am sorry Now you must go But wait I have so many uestions I OK she wasn t so bad it s just even if in a way it was interesting to see the contrast between young Kiska and the chiseled veteran Temper especially those few alternating POV it felt somehow like I was reading two books One epic fantasy the other YA fantasy with an annoying bratty heroine Somehow they don t mix in my opinion and that has made it a bumpy rideI thought to rate it 3 stars but after thinking about it a few days I ll up it to 35 and round it on 4 I m a Malazan fan after allI ll be reading the Return of the Crimson Guard after The Bonehunters Ware the cold human Ware the ice that grips The frost that silences I thought this was a worthy addition to the Malazan world Esselmont s writing style is a bit different to Erikson s but his story did retain the feel of a Malazan book The lot was suitably entertaining and complex and Esselmont also did a great job with the characters both the new and familiar ones The whole story took Forbidden Love Unchained place in one city over the course of a single night The city was Malaz City Once it was the heart of the Imperial Malazan Empire but in theresent day it is little than a backwater Not this night The night of the Shadow Moon A night where worlds and realms converge Also a night that will see the Witches of the Deep South prophesied Return Many expect the long absent Emperor Kellenved to return for his throne Surly the Imperial Regent means to see that never occurs Theirs is not the only battle that will takelace on this night of magic as a Convergence draws in all sorts of Metro 2033 (Universo Metro) powerful creatures to the city The story was mainly told from the POV of two new characters Kiska a young would be spy who is determined torove she deserves a lace in the Imperial Army Temper a world weary war veteran Once Temper served under the First Sword but now he is keeping his head down and just trying to escape the notice of the Claw We got a few others POV s and all served to give the story depthI We got a few others POV s and all served to give the story depthI the story It really did have the feel of Malazan story even if it did lack the witty dialogue that makes reading Erikson s books so much fun I liked both Kiska and Temper They were complete opposites but both were likeable and easy to root for It was great to get a glimpse of the moment that Surly became Empress Laseen and to see both Dancer and Kellenved spin their own lots and seize another sort of Run for Your Life (Michael Bennett, power We got to meet the usual cool assortment of memorable human and non human characters and I m hoping we meet some again This was a good story that fell only slightly short of being as good as Erikson s own contributions to the Malazan world All in all I was happy and impressed by Esselmont s first book and look forward to reading of his books with the knowledge that he is a capable contributor to this great seriesRating 4 starsAudio Note This was narrated by Jonathan Banks He had large boots to fill as I think both Page and Lister were excellent in narrating Erikson s Malazan Book of the Fallen but I thought he did a decent job with the audio of this one Reread ReadFirst read 3Second read 4I enjoyed this so much the second time around ICE does have a weird way of wording things but having read all 8 booksublished to this Alice-Miranda at Camp point I m used to it and was able to enjoy the story a lot This book still unlike any of the others is like a fantasy mystery blend with a good dose of horror to give it a truly eerie fee. Once in a generation Shadow Moon brings demon hounds and darker beings Also arophecy The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature (Penguin Press Science) (English Edition) promises the return of. Ling While still not SE s level orrose *LAYERS I STILL THINK IT *I STILL THINK IT WELL WORTH I still think it s well worth The introductions to Temper and Edgewalker alone make it worth it then you throw in learning about the old empire and a lot about Daseem and it really complements BotF so well First ReadGoing into this book I tried to clear my mind of any expectations The reason being a lot of the reviews by other Book of the Fallen lovers were so varied The The Association of Small Bombs prologue was excellent and has that foreboding tone but is not the epic overtone that Erikson has in some of his works Really Erikson is the king of therologue in my opinion so NOK being good spoke well for this start Moving into the start of the book and really throughout I struggled with Esslemont s sentence structure I m hardly an English lit major but generally you Wilderness Survival Handbook pick up an author s cadence and once you have it figured out most stories flow from thatoint His continued to be awkward and lacked Erikson s elegance For better or worse there s no way to avoid the comparisons The story itself I really enjoyed Still if you re looking for this to be Deadhouse Gates or Memories of Ice it isn t It lacks that epic scale But it s not meant to be either Everything takes The White Mans Burden place in one earth shattering night I loved guessing at who characters really were I loved learning about characters who aren t the main focus of the main series but are still important This book read like an action horror and war story all at once The action was mostly fast and furious and I enjoyed it I do wish there was direct access to Dancer and Kellanved but the author went for cloak and dagger action seen through the eyes of two characters on theeripheral edge of events and really it worked so I won t uibble If you love the main series you need to read this but don t think of it as the main series The gaps it fills are invaluable and enjoyable Well this seems incredibly underrated Night of Knives first volume in the Novels of the Malazan Empire by Ian C Esslemont is not a huge brick of eual Visit the Sick parts amazement and confusion like the doorstoppers of his friend Steven Erikson It s a decidedly standard fantasy novel and it doesn t distinguish itself in the way of the Malazan Book of the Fallen That does not mean however that it is any less impressiveEsslemont s style is simple both in language and inlot and in many ways he appears to be less ambitious than his co author But this book gives off the Malazan vibe strongly than anything since Deadhouse Gates and unlike reading an Erikson book you don t have to work for it Some Carry Me Over the Threshold people wouldrobably argue that s a bad thing but I found this book engaging than the main Malazan books despite lacking in a few of the ualities which have made the series so outstandingOverall though Esslemont lured me fully into the Malazan universe once again and I m very excited about continuing this epic This is a very good bookFollowing two main character The Courtship Basket point of views One being Temper an old school elite yet uncredited serviceman for the Malazan empire and Kiska a youth urchin spy with the talent of magic somewhere within her Kiska was very mysterious a bit whiny and kept getting caught byeople throughout her sneaking antics but I think she was an omnipotent device to show the unfolding events Temper was just a no fuks given veteran The best Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 2 Samuel (The Expositors Bible Commentary parts for Temper was his lack of desire for recognition for the extraordinary feats that had been are accomplished by him but also his flashback sections with Dassem Ultor whoeople will know from the main seriesSome Small Talk people do not rate this book compared to the Malazan Book of the Fallen I think if you miss this out then you are missing so many crucial layers that make the world the best envisaged in fantasy I understand how it can knock Malazan die hards off balance as they are used to going from 900age epics following 40 Accidental Pharisees point of views to a linear story revolving around one chaotic night The mystiue created by Dancer and Kellevand freuents throughout this novel and is truly fascinating It is the story about one night where magic worlds accession and races all discombobulate and at the same time collide Hounds warrens zombies storm riders etc This is a fastaced book Well written It might not showcase the linguistic acrobatics that Erikson sometimes resents but does Erikson really know what all those complex synonyms and semantical euivalent words mean anyway I actually think if rior fans hadn t already ascertained the diamond tinted loving of and egotistical disgust of anything that isn t Erikson Malazan they may enjoy this story as a new comer Esslemont has recently released Dancer s Lament which is reveled by all Malazan fans and carries on with the structural devices initiated here I think this is a great first book from Esslemont and can t wait to read the rest He works the Malazan world well and creates wonder let s hope it continues Peace x wwwyouandibookswordpressco.
