What kind of story sucks you into is spinning vortex of pure genius, tries to smash your head like a sledgehammer with beauty, sheer brutality, a limitless feeling of epic and the most tragic fates you have ever had to witness and afterwards vomits you out again, helpless and broken and battered like someone who just survived Stalingrad? Exactly, a Malazan novel. In every sense better and stronger than the first one (Gardens of the moon), and certainly one of the series' best. The language was as poetic as ever, the characters great too: Tragic and violence were bound in Duiker, the historian, while Icarium and Mappo where the living symbols of eternal tragedy, friendship and sorrow, There was enough sense of heroism (Riddick-like Baudin and military genius and martyr Coltaine), as well as the funny (and insane) ones, the priest Iskaral and Mogora his wife, and Fiddler with his filthy beard and grenado-crossbow. There was also enough fantasy: Shapeshifters roaming the holy desert, giant lizards with wings (and dragons, too), sea monsters, portals, gods and undead stone-agean warriors. And note the giant savage with the crazed tatoos amd the two-metre flint sword. He is going to be the most awesome badass you ever lived to see. (Although only in later novels) Deadhouse Gates is surely not a must-read (as nothing is, truth be told), but if you miss it, you've definetely missed something quintessential in your life.

Marvellous!

Deadhouse Gates is one of Eriksons most cherished and epic tales of the malazan cycle. The story is great, as well as the awesome characters, and the continent of seven cities and its cultures are intriguing. The prosa is one of the best, Erikson style. The book mainly treats with blood, desert ghosts, fanatics, vile gods and and the trifling struggle of mortals. The only thing which may cause somebody to hesitate, is the sheer size of this epic tale. Well, malazan, what else.
