The ravaged continent of Genabackis has given birth to a terrifying new empire: the Pannion Domin. Like a tide of corrupted blood, it seethes across the land, devouring all. In its path stands an uneasy alliance: Onearm's army and Whiskeyjack's Bridgeburners alongside their enemies of old--the forces of the Warlord Caladan Brood, Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii mages, and the Rhivi people of the plains. But ancient undead clans are also gathering; the T'lan Imass have risen. For it would seem something altogether darker and more malign threatens this world. Rumors abound that the Crippled God is now unchained and intent on a terrible revenge. Marking the return of many characters from Gardens of the Moon and introducing a host of remarkable new players, Memories of Ice is both a momentous new chapter in Steven Erikson's magnificent epic fantasy and a triumph of storytelling. At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

(Please start with the first book of the series and read as they were published.)
I have so far read the first three of the series and am starting on the fourth. The style of writing and the style of conveying a narrative has solidly improved since the first book. I would say of the first three, this would barely be the weakest on the simple grounds that the plot was a tad simpler than the first two. There are still some twists that caught me off guard toward the end, but by and large the story here is straightforward and nearly formulaic as contrasted with the first two in the series. At the same time, the characterizations have steadily improved since the first book, so in that regard, this book is arguably the better of the three. A very solid if not outstanding epic fantasy novel; the series is shaping up to be vastly superior as a whole to each book as a piece.

A great book, lots and I mean LOTS of meat to it. It helps to have read at least "Gardens of the Moon" (I skipped the second book, "Deadhouse Gates," as it follows different characters introduced in "Gardens.")

My friend recommended this fantasy series to me. It's in the same vein as Game of Thrones in that it's gritty, more realistic fantasy, and it takes place in an immediately post war setting. I personally prefer Erikson's more neutral writing tone compared to Martin's. The setting is incredibly detailed, and the timeline is long, so not all the books in the series (13 of them, not including prequels and off-shoots) follow each other seamlessly.

It's hard to describe the world and books as anything but an epic, and I've only read the two books so far, and part of another. It's grim dark at times, gritty, there are mature themes but they aren't played up or sensationalized. There are so many characters (I referred to the list in the back of the book a few times) but they all have roles to play, even if they are small. The character that picks up a stone from the ground will somehow be significant. It's a trek, but it's a good one.
