Esslemont ´ 2 Review Free download Dancer's Lament Taking Malazan fans back to that troubled continent's turbulent early history The opening chapter in Ian C Esslemont's epic new fantasy seuence the Path to Ascendancy trilogyFor ages warfare has crippled the continent as minor city states baronies and principalities fought in an endless round of hostilities Only the alliance of the rival Tali and uon cities could field the resources to mount a hegemony from coast to coast and thus become known as uon TaliIt is a generation since the collapse of this dynasty and regional powers are onc. 2nd reread edit full series review out next week Reread edit so much love for this on the second read through Next book out in November so if any Malazan fans haven t picked this one up yet get to itit s well worth your time My experience of this book was entirely that of gleeful absorption and joyful celebration because it s about Dancer and Kellanved If you have read Erikson s Malazan books and these two characters aren t on your favourites list then you need to read the series again because you re reading it wrongMy main concern was that learning about these two would lessen the frustrating yet enticing mystery they represent but it was not the case Seeing them in their less than fully formed state is freuently amusing but also chilling because we know the future and that future starts here The only actual review like addition i m going to make to this piece of enthusiasm is that I really enjoyed Esslemont s style in this book Having only read Night of Knives before now the skill level he showed in this novel has increased tenfold He nails the humour and there are moments of unsettling menace that chilled me I m already eager for Huge thanks to Ian C Esslemont Random HouseTransworld Publishers and Netgalley for this copy in exchange for an honest review

Dancer s Lament first book in Path to Ascendancy series is not a preuel It s the first book of a new series set in the early history of the Malazan Empire Distinction very important to indicate less we woke Ian s ireBut in all seriousness it is my hope that when finished people in future will start Malazan Book of the Fallen series from this book instead of Gardens of the Moon written by Steven Erikson While this book stands on its own without any need of your prior knowledge to be read it will hopefully invoke both interest to explore this world further and also give much needed and endlessly complained about introduction to abrupt start of Steven Erikson s Gardens of the Moon Less anyone ever again utters those heretic words such as I don t understand or I m lost and this is hard etcBut again seriously even after three reads of the main series while reading this book I found myself surprised with my lack of understanding of certain things and events both of which this book explained and clarified to me and prepared me for next one This is my first read of Ian s book and I honestly didn t know what to expect It s no secret that I hold dear and very close to my heart Malazan Book of the Fallen series and consider it as a peak of epic fantasy and best it has produced in history of the genre And that s the uite unfair reason why avoided Ian s previous books in which story is parallel and overlaps that of main series For some twisted reason I feared my opinion and enjoyment would be sullied if it happens that Ian fails to deliver But now that I m reading chronologically everything that was written about this world I wanted to embrace every single thing in it and enjoy journey with everything it has to offerAfter finishing this book I think I m even excited about this journey if that was possibleDancer s Lament is different than main series and Kharkanas preuels First and foremost in its approach Focus of this book is to tell personal story of very few POV characters just three actually where conseuences of their actions are almost immediate and glaringly obvious to reader It s also written without that romantic philosophical prose which was shockingly apparent especially after archaic prose in Kharkanas there is constant feeling of progress without characters and yours pondering throughout It s less metaphoricalWhich doesn t mean it lacks depth It s simply a matter of angle of approach to this world Story and Characters Story is set in inland city Li Heng of Central Malazan Empire s continent uon Tali The city itself is under the rule of powerful sorceress Shalamant known as The Protectress and her coterie of five magesTogether they give resistance to the siege of Li Heng under ambitious king of Itko Kan Chulalorn and constant infiltration of the city with his assassins Nightblades as well as whip sword wielding bodyguards sent on a diplomatic mission In the city is also young Dorin trained assassin trying to work his way up in criminal underground and gain reputation despite his young appearance and there is also Wu seemingly a charlatan or very incompetent mage trying to gain access to secrets of a certain misplaced and forgotten Warren Realm of magic Dorin s relationship with Wu is as funny and precious as that of Cotillion s with Shadowthrone That s all I m going to say about thatWe follow three POV characters and each separately provides us with glimpses of different parts of the storyWith already mentioned Dorin we see how Li Heng s simple citizens cope with siege as well as exploration of magic realm with his uite unfortunate crossings with Wu We get to experience battles those sieges inevitably bring through the eyes of mage Silk as well as other side s perspective of the conflict with whip sword Kanese girl Iko All of them in their own experiences of the world around them get to grow shape and change their views first and foremost of themselves then of the people and in the end of the world itselfBeside them one of the most interesting characters was definitely The Protectress herself At first glance she seems like another bland and overpowered character but when she sees certain elder Warren resurfacing with realization what that means and which Son might be summoned to inspect this occurrence you would think she is paralyzed with fear And if you are familiar with history of the world you ll notice it s not just fear that makes her eyesight fall but deep shame and regrets of injustice long time ago committedYou ll find yourself empathetic to her characterAs for other

ICE has final produce the 5 book I ve been waiting for and this is better than some of the Erikson books for the first time The differences for me are that for the first time he used empathy for the characters and the people in general Second he did foreboding and portentous events with the correct leveling In the past he either over did it beating you in the head with a shovel or did in a way that only confused the issue Third his general writing style has comes so far since Night of Knives This still isn t an Erikson book which has it s plusses and minuses The end convergence and the sorrow build into the characters isn t at the same level You don t need to follow every words so cautiously feeling you ll miss something completely if you don t When completed you don t feel like you fought Tyson circa 1991 either ICE has stuck to his style and perfected it The story is much straightforward which is nice at times when the author just gives you an information dump The biggest thing is anybody who has read the main serieswho doesn t want to know Kellanved and Dancer s story Plus there s a host of others we get a clearer picture of or in some cases a view not scene before at all I cannot wait until November and Deadhouse Landing
