No, who starts with an ending? Nonetheless, I think Erikson is aiming at greatness and coming relatively close. He hires the Trygalle Trade Guild to take him to that malszan continent and is accompanied by Gruntle, who does this because he is irritated by all the attention from the acolytes and priestess of Trake, the new God of War.
But with pages left in the book, it picked up yet again.

This made my reading experience much less boring than it was supposed tolp be. The ratings for Toll the Hounds are probably the most divergent of this series, as the pace was very slow for a significant part of the book with a greater level of dense philosophical commentary and seemingly overindulgent introspection.
It seems like everything I thr about magic and heroes has been redefined. Allow me to close this review with a quote that will definitely stick with me for a long time. I particularly liked seeing these character meeting within this storyline as that added a lot of dramatic tension.
Yet, the opposite thf happens in symmetry. Malaan world feels real, with consequences some terrible and permanent and high stakes. Kf I must admit I’m surprised a few of the characters never off’ed themselves before the big Convergence finally hit given how depressed and suicidal they were! Still, when the characters were done playing with themselves some literally so we get the customary, second to none, explosive action scenes that keeps me coming back for more.
Travis It was released in as an audiobook. This book started out strong and ended even stronger. Survival demands something else fails to survive. A number of people came back to the city and they have no idea what to do in there, which leaves a lot of time for them to ponder on philosophical questions.
And those, who don’t give this book more than eight points are blind. Martin with their large casts, it’s that stories on an epic scale that have only one main character are unrealistic. And most of all: The cement that is stability.
Toll the Hounds by Steven Erikson
Every step, one after another, again and again, and no perilous ledge yawns ahead, oh no. As soon as it happens, people finally start acting – in the very last moment, doing great sacrifices; most of these hhounds could be easily prevented if somebody bothered to do something fairly obvious and logical things, too before the crisis started.
So here we are for the eighth time and it just gets better and better. That was a little disappointing.
We also get to see a lot of Kruppe who is never short of words houndss good for a laugh. In war everyone loses. Ah, some security, perhaps.
Then again its taken over my life for over a year now and I still have two books to go on the main series and then there are all the other books and at least one complete reread to go Although it was dull at times, I looked forward to reading about some of toll favorites like the retired Bridgeburners, Karsa Orlong, Gruntle, and the Noms.
People come and gone.

It has hundreds of pages of filler and attempts to add colour the humour of Kruppe and the Magus of Shadow is, umm, pathetic? I didn’t like her story much, although I see why it’s included, but I thought she did bring some interesting moments. Within the realm of Dragnipur, more and more souls are dying, and the ones left standing are more than aware that Chaos is on the verge of overtaking the wagon.
Isn’t there any price to pay? Like broke slate We take our hatred And pile it high A ragged line to map Our rise and fall And I saw suffused With the dawn Crows aligned in rows Along the crooked wall Come to feed Bones lie scattered At the stone’s foot The houmds ruin Of past assaults The crows face each way To eye the pickings On both sides For all its weakness The boom cannot break What we make Of our hatred I watched the workers Carry each gray rock They laboured Blind and stepped Unerringly modest paths Piece by sheared piece They built a slaughter Of innocent others While muttering as they might Of waves of weather And goodly deeds We the Builders Hanasp Tular.
Published September 16th by Tor Books first published The word ‘epic’ will not even begin to describe the confluence of almost all the major, or biggest, or most badass characters, descending upon the unwitting citizens of the City of Blue Fire.
And a lot of characters, whom I didn’t find likable, developed a whole lot Scillara is an exampleand I changed my opinion about quite a falldn of them. Works by Steven Erikson.
