The warrens of magic dwelt in the beyond

Sette Città era una civiltà radicata nel potere dell'antichità; l'antichità in cui gli Ascendenti camminavano su ogni strada mercantile, ogni sentiero, ogni pista abbandonata fra città dimenticate.
(64)

Ho percorso antiche strade
In questo giorno
Che diventavano spettri con
Il calar della notta
E scomparivano ai miei occhi
Con l'alba.
Tale fu il mio viaggio
Leghe attraverso secoli
In un batter di ciglia del sole.

Epitaffio Pardu


(198)

Quando le sabbie
Danzavano cieche,
Lei emerse dal volto
Di una dea furibonda.


Sha'ik

(414)

...Heboric scoppiò a ridere. Sollevò le mani invisibili. "Mostrami un mortale che non sia inseguito e ti mostrerò un cadavere. Ogni cacciatore è cacciato, ogni mente che conosce se stessa è inseguita. Spingiamo e siamo spinti. L'ignoto insegue l'ignorante, la verità assale ogni studioso abbastanza saggio da riconoscere la propria ignoranza, perché quello è il significato di verità inconoscibili".

(551)

E così, la semplice verità... i sentieri che abbiamo percorso per così tanto tempo diventano le nostre stesse vite, loro stesse una prigione...

Literary masterpiece, if any single one of the other Malazan books are similar to this than I don't know if I'll be able to read regular fantasy after.√ā Gardens of the Moon suffered at times from the feeling that nothing was happening, Deadhouse Gates is the complete opposite. It could stand alone with how intensive but also well wrapped-up the story is, but since its the second of a long, long series it sets up what I'm worried is a nearly impossible standard to match. The ending was fitting, but its one of the first times I was actively hoping for some blatant author miracle to save them. Any break in (fantasy) realism would have been welcomed rather than Coltaines end. √ā ( )

I sometimes have a hard time imagining the terrain, especially during Coltaine's marches. I just can't visualize battlefield and what its surroundings look like. This is the first fantasy book where I've felt an urge to consult the maps. I can't wait to read Memories of Ice. ( )

Dedication
This novel is dedicated to two gentlemen:
David Thomas, Jr.,
who welcomed me to England
with an introduction to a certain agent, and

Patrick Walsh,
the agent he introduced me to.
There has been a lot of faith shown over the years,
and I thank you both.
First words
He came shambling into Judgment's Round from the Avenue of Souls, a misshapen mass of flies.
