ascendancy parts one two three complete Manual

So engrossed are the warring lords and princes in their own petty feuds that few notice that an upstart mage from Dal Hon has gained control of the southern seas. But some powers are alarmed. And in the meantime, as Purge and Tali indulge in what seems like a their never-ending game of war, a mercenary The incessant war between the bickering city states of Quon Tali rages.

And in the meantime, as Purge and Tali indulge in what seems like a their never-ending game of war, a mercenary caught up in the fight between the two states suddenly refuses to play along and causes all sorts of chaos. Simultaneously, a pair of escapees from Castle Gris make their way across this ravaged landscape of flame and butchery. Their intention to seek out the legendary Crimson Guard. And then there's Kellanved who could not care less about any of this petty politicking or strategy or war. Something other and altogether more mysterious has caught his attention and he - together with a reluctant and decidedly sceptical Dancer - traverse continents and journey through the Realms in pursuit.

Kellanved's Reach

But this ancient mystery that has so captivated Kellanved is neither esoteric nor ephemeral. No, it is of an altogether darker and more dangerous hue. It involves the Elder races themselves, and more specifically - certainly more alarmingly - the semi-mythic, and universally dreaded, Army of Dust and Bone. Surely no one in their right mind would be so foolish as to embark on a journey from which none have returned?

Well, no one except Kellanved that is. Returning to the turbulent early history of what would become the Malazan Empire, here is the third awesome chapter in Ian C.

Only a fool, or an insane power-craving He shook his head once again, this time in exasperation. I would like to thank Ian C. Before I start the review proper I will quickly state that I am quite lucky as a reviewer because of some of the books I get to read early. Ever "The elders were powerful and dreadful - it was a blessing their days were over. 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 more in store in this prequel 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 conquest 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. About another 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 more and more are introduced. Tasyschrenn stood with Dancer. 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 required end game was and what their objectives were.

Dancer's Lament had 3 point of view perspectives, Silk, Iko and Dancer. This new entry has approximately 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 housemate! So, 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. 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 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.

There are meaningful, layered conversations that can only be understood in reference to what comes afterwards, and there are silly jokes that work in the same way. The seeds of destruction are laid out before the reader here and we know they end. For fans, it's hard to resist. The hill I'm going to die on: start with Gardens of the Moon It was problematic for this instalment in any case, taking away the focus from Kellanved and Dancer.

They fade in and out of the picture in this book see what I did?? Everything just that bit too clunky and repetitive. Once is enough. This is particularly evident in the later part of this instalment, jumping from one thing to the next and barely managing to get the highlights down. I hope whatever comes next picks that energy back up, because otherwise the impact of all the hugely important stuff just around the corner is going to be non-existent.
