2nd in the series and I am hooked. Although huge cast of characters is sometimes hard to follow, Erickson helps out with a list of them in front and a glossary in the rear. I find this series Toilken Meets Harry Potter and am loving it ( )

I think the place these books succeed is at the very end. For the majority of the read I find myself confused, bored, and really not connected to the characters at all. Then Steven Erikson slaps me around with a solid ending with great pacing and a series of cliffhangers that makes me want to go through it all again. I feel like an abused lover. ( )

A different continent, a different kind of story, and the world grows bigger, deeper, and more complex. Just a few characters from the first book in the series, plus many new ones. Grimmer than the first, and a little GRRM-y, in that terrible things happen to good people, who thereby become terrible themselves. ( )

Steven Erikson is improving at making characters live and breath along with the world he is forming around them. I am coming to the conclusion this is a series of books that will live or die on whether it works as a whole, rather than its individual cogs. ( )

Another doorstopper. ( )

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.
