Book Description
All is not well in the Letherii Empire. Rhulad Sengar, the Emperor of a Thousand Deaths, spirals into madness, surrounded by sycophants and agents of his Machiavellian chancellor. Meanwhile, the Letherii secret police conduct a campaign of terror against their own people. The Errant, once a farseeing god, is suddenly blind to the future. Conspiracies seethe throughout the palace, as the empire - driven by the corrupt and self-interested - edges ever-closer to all-out war with the neighboring kingdoms.
The great Edur fleet--its warriors selected from countless numbers of people--draws closer. Amongst the warriors are Karsa Orlong and Icarium Lifestealer--each destined to cross blades with the emperor himself. That yet more blood is to be spilled is inevitable... Against this backdrop, a band of fugitives seek a way out of the empire, but one of them, Fear Sengar, must find the soul of Scabandari Bloodeye. It is his hope that the soul might help halt the Tiste Edur, and so save his brother, the emperor. Yet, traveling with them is Scabandari's most ancient foe: Silchas Ruin, brother of Anomander Rake. And his motives are anything but certain - for the wounds he carries on his back, made by the blades of Scabandari, are still fresh.
Fate decrees that there is to be a reckoning, for such bloodshed cannot go unanswered--and it will be a reckoning on an unimaginable scale. This is a brutal, harrowing novel of war, intrigue and dark, uncontrollable magic; this is epic fantasy at its most imaginative, storytelling at its most thrilling.

    Leggere la prima parte di questo libro è stato faticoso. Avevo l'impressione che le vicende dei vari personaggi non fossero legate le une alle altre e malgrado la fiducia che ripongo in Steven Erikson non riuscivo ad appassionarmi alla storia. Ovviamente Erikson sa cosa fa, e l'ultima parte del romanzo mi ha davvero appassionato.
    Non vedo l'ora di leggere i libri successivi soprattutto per scoprire cosa Tavore ha in mente (e Quick Ben ovviamente).

    This is the reason for the long mystery and nonfiction build up of my reading lists. I always end up loving Erickson's books, but they require me to gear up for them, usually by avoiding anything remotely connected to epic fantasy for a period of time.
