Steven Erikson serves up the third installment in his Malazan Book of the Fallen series with Memories of Ice, a doorstopper of a tome in which a huge cast of characters mercenaries, army men, priests, warlords, wolves and bonecasters fight to free the continent of Genabackis from the evil Pannion Domin empire. Certain names from Garden of the Moon will be familiar to readers, as will Erikson's particular combination of lush description, sharp dialogue and fantastical, grand imagination.

Homeric in scope and vision...Read and expect to be overpowered,
not only by a story that never fails to thrill and entertain, but
by a saga that lives up to its name, both intellectually and in its
dramatic, visually rich and lavish storytelling * SF site *
Erikson afflicts me with awe...vast in scope, almost frighteningly fecund in imagination, and rich in sympathy, his work does something that only the rarest of books can manage: it alters the reader's perceptions of reality -- Stephen R. Donaldson
Rare is the writer who so fluidly combines a sense of mythic power and depth of world with fully realized characters and thrilling action, but Steven Erikson manages it spectacularly -- Michael A. Stackpole
