Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen Series #1) by Steven Erikso n A thrilling first fantasy novel by an exciting and original new voice in th e genre. The vast Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, its subject states bled dr y by interminable warfare and clashes with Anomander Rake, Lord of Moon's S pawn, and the mysterious Tiste Andii. Even the imperial legions, long inure d to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet the Empress' rule remains a bsolute, enforced by her dread Claw assassins. For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his cynical squad of Bridgeburners, and for Ta ttersail, sole surviving sorceress of the Second Legion, the aftermath of t he siege of Pale should have been a time to heal the still living and mourn the many dead. The Empress has other ideas. However, it would appear the E mpire is not the only player in this great game. A more sinister, shadowbou nd force is poised to make its first move. Conceived and written on an epic scale, Gardens of the Moon is a breathtaking achievement - a novel in which grand design, a dark and complex mythology, wild and wayward magic and a host of enduring characters combine with thrilling, powerful storytelling to resounding effect.
