The Malazan Book of the Fallen
« on: October 02, 2014, 07:55:48 AM »
Also for Novels of the Malazan Empire, The Kharkanas Trilogy, and when it comes, The Toblaki Trilogy.
No idea why this topic did not exist, but these books are damn awesome.

Best to spoiler tag major things, though. It's not the most recent series, but it is damn intense, so it can take people some time to get through it.

Ah, but have you read the Esslemont books yet?
They add a lot.

You get to see more of the Seguleh doing crazy things, the Crimson Guard being damn insane, and Kallor being the obnoxious immortal warlord that he is.
Highly recommend.

Also, The Forge of Darkness. Shows things back in the time before Warrens. D:

And yes, the series is amazing.

Favourite character(s)?

I've read some Esslemont. I began the Night of Knives.

I'd have to say Anomander Rake and Kalam were my favorites. Yourself?

Ah, Night of Knives was quite interesting.

Yeah, Rake is damn amazing, as is Hood, though I'd say Kallor is up there, too. Brood showed potential, but wasn't seen enough.
Not counting those entities from ancient times... Adaephon Ben Delat, and Ganoes Paran.

... this series has too many great characters.

Ahhhh, Ganoes. He was awesome. Kallor was definitely on my list. Hood was certainly my favorite God, and damn, Heboric Light Touch was amazing.

That little chat he had with Poliel was quite impressive.

Hood after Toll The Hounds is just ridiculously intense.
That Forkruul...

Ah, Heboric, he was an interesting one, aye.

And I cannot believe I forgot Karsa...
Gods Damn Karsa, he was ridiculous, once he started to develop a little.
