Synopsis

The Bonehunters by Steven Erikson

The Seven Cities Rebellion has been crushed. One last rebel force remains, holed up in the city of Y’Ghatan under the fanatical command of Leoman of the Flails. The prospect of laying siege to this ancient fortress makes the battle-weary Malaz 14th Army uneasy. For it was here that the Empire’s greatest champion was slain and a tide of Malazan blood spilled. It is a place of foreboding, its smell is of death.

Yet this is but a sideshow. Agents of a far greater conflict have made their opening moves. The Crippled God has been granted a place in the pantheon and a schism threatens. Sides must be chosen. But whatever each god decides, the rules have changed – irrevocably, terrifyingly – and the first blood to be drawn will be in the mortal world….

Reviews

‘The most significant work of epic fantasy since Donaldson’s Chronicles of Thomas Covenant’ SF SITE

‘I stand slack-jawed in awe of The Malazan Book of the Fallen. This masterwork of the imagination may be the high watermark of epic fantasy’ GLEN COOK

‘This is true myth in the making, a drawing upon fantasy to recreate histories and legends as rich as any found within our culture’ INTERZONE

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
