Fall of Light

The Second Book in the Kharkanas Trilogy

(1)
Before the Malazan Empire, there was a time that set the stage for all those tales yet to be told . . .
The winter is bitter. Civil war threatens Kurald Galain for the warrior Urusander's army has begun its march on the city of Kharkanas. Led by the ruthless Hunn Raal, it intends to cast aside Mother Dark's consort, Draconus, and set Urusander himself on the throne beside the Living Goddess. Those who would stand in the way of the rebels lie scattered and weakened - leaderless since Anomander went in search of an estranged brother. In his stead, Silchas Ruin resolves to gather the Houseblades of the Highborn families to him, and to resurrect the legendary Hust Legion, but time is not on his side.
Far to the west, an unlikely army musters. It seeks an enemy without form, in a place none can find. And yet Hood's call has been heard and the long-abandoned city of Omtose Phellack is now home to a rabble of new arrivals: Dog-Runners from the south, Jheck warriors, and blue-skinned strangers from across the Western Sea have come to offer Hood their swords. From the distant mountains and isolated valleys of the North, Thel Akai arrive to pledge themselves in this seemingly impossible war. Soon, they will set forth with weapons drawn under the banners of the living in pursuit of Death itself.
Such events presage chaos, and now magic bleeds into this realm. Unconstrained, mysterious and savage, it begins to run loose and wild and following its scent, seeking the places of wounding and hurt - new and ancient entities gather.
In a world becoming rotten with sorcery, can honour truly exist?
Portrait
Steven Erikson, geb. in Kanada, Anthropologe und Archäologe, lebt seit vielen Jahren in der Nähe von London.

If you're an admirer of Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen, don't treat yourself to the Kharkanas Trilogy! The storyline is overcomplicated - almost torn - the thread changes so many times and the want to read on - something I enjoyed in the Malazan stories - just fades away. It's completely overdone in every aspect: language, number of characters, number of parallel stories etc. and although close in broadness of scheme and imagination it clearly lacks the one defining element of the Malazan stories: the Malazan marine with his/her ferocity, wit, humour and cynism which give him/her a quality found in the Shakespearean fool! If you want straight forward fantasy from Quon Tali etc. concentrate on the Esslemont novels, if you need more Erikson, start again with Gardens of the Moon...
