The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting, and bloody confrontations with ancient and implacable sorcerers. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen’s rule remains absolute, enforced by her dreaded Claw assassins. For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, their lone surviving mage, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities, yet holds out. It is to this ancient citadel that Laseen turns her predatory gaze.

However, the Empire is not alone in this great game. Sinister, shadowbound forces are gathering as the gods themselves prepare to play their hand.

Conceived and written on a panoramic scale, Gardens of the Moon is epic fantasy of the highest order—an enthralling adventure by an outstanding voice.

    " Confusing and amazing "

    " I'm so glad a random person on Star Wars: The Old Republic recommended this to me or I may never have discovered it. This book is fantastic and so fresh, so different than most fantasy (much like Brandon Sanderson only MORE epic). I love the deep mythos and far reaching history Erikson has created here, it tickles that same bone in me that loves reading about ancient mysteries here on earth. The magic system is relatively unique (and interesting) and the different races of humanoids aren't constrained to the boring and overused elves, dwarves, orcs, etc. On top of all that it's incredibly gritty and definitely NOT for the squeamish. On top of it all the storyline is very good once you understand what's going on. My only qualm with this book would be that it just kind of hits the ground running without explaining a lot of things but the book is just so good overall that it didn't really mar my enjoyment of it. To top it all off there are 9 more epicly large volumes of this series and it's all finished, I can't wait for the rest. "

    " Not your typically storyline starting from point A to Z. It starts at the middle of everything. A Challenging read because of this but very rewarding. "

    " Really good book. It was a little tricky at first because there isn't much explanation of what is going on, but the author does a good enough job with the exposition to get the point across by the end. I actually liked it better than Game of Thrones (gasp). Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. "
