A Novel of the Malazan Empire. Well, this seems incredibly underrated See all reviews. Stormriders are attacking Toben in his boat out in the Straights but their ice-lances and icebergs melt before reaching him.

The three observe a warrior, whom Kiska saw besting a Claw earlier, negotiate with a cultist. Set up a giveaway. An excellent, fast-paced addition to the series. I have so many esslemobt.

Now, the main argument why esxlemont are recommending that this book should be read in-between Bonehunters and Toll the Houn It is my opinion that long lasting debate when a person should read this book is finally coming to an end.

Night of Knives by Ian C Esslemont book review

Although I had a lot of fun following two major POV characters — Kiska, desperate wannabe participant in any major plot out there in the world, be that as a spy, informant, thief, assassin or basically anything to make her nibht not just thrilling but also significant; and Temper, grizzly, retired Malazan eselemont, troubled with nightmares of his past and not being able to find his fo in future that Empire is set to provide for him — story itself and how the world works in it, are confusing at times.

After my second jight, I decided to bump it up a star. It looks a good deal bigger than this one so hopefully he’ll be able to stretch out a bit more and put some more detail in, because this series is nothing if not detailed. The second is the fact that I was inevitably comparing it to the Malazan Book of the Fallen I just finished this past August.
