Deadhouse Gates

Malazan Book of the Fallen 2

The Malazan Book Of The Fallen

(2)

Weakened by events in Darujhistan, the Malazan Empire teeters on the brink of anarchy. In the vast dominion of Seven Cities, in the Holy Desert Raraku, the seer Sha'ik gathers an army around her in preparation for the long-prophesied uprising named the Whirlwind. Unprecedented in its size and savagery, it will embroil in one of the bloodiest conflicts it has ever known: a maelstrom of fanaticism and bloodlust that will shape destinies and give birth to legends...
In the Otataral mines, Felisin, youngest daughter of the disgraced House of Paran, dreams of revenge against the sister who sentenced her to a life of slavery. Escape leads her to raraku, where her soul will be reborn and her future made clear. The now-outlawed Bridgeburners, Fiddler and the assassin Kalam, have vowed to return the once god-possessed Apsalar to her homeland, and to confront and kill the Empress Laseen, but events will overtake them too. Meanwhile, Coltaine, the charismatic commander of the Malaz 7th Army, will lead his battered, war-weary troops in a last, valient running battle to save the lives of thirty thousand refugees and, in so doing, secure an illustrious place in the Empire's chequered history. And into this blighted land come two ancient wanderers, Mappo and his half-Jaghut companion Icarium, bearers of a devastating secret that threatens to break free of its chains...
Set in a brilliantly-realized world ravaged by anarchy and dark, uncontrollable magic, Deadhouse Gates is the thrilling, brutal second chapter in the Malazan Book of the Fallen. A powerful novel of war, intrigue and betrayal, it confirms Steven Erikson as a storyteller of breathtaking skill, imagination and originality - a new master of epic fantasy.

Rezension
"If you're looking for a low calorie dish of light fantasy, this ain't it. If you're looking for a nine-course riot of taste and texture, exotically spiced to make your eyes water, your heart pump faster and your brain do cartwheels inside your cranium, I know a great little Thai place. Or, if you want something analogous to that in your reading, stop at the 'Es' and pick up the latest from Steven Erikson...I can safely say that Deadhouse Gates is one of the best fantasy novels of 2000"

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.
