To view life as but a quick passage alone a bonehuntres, tortured path — made foul and tortured by our own indifference — is to excuse all manner of misery and depravity, and to exact cruel punishment upon the innocent lives to come. I failed to connect to this person, so that was the point of long sections for his POV?

The Bonehunters

I think at the end of Bonehunters you really start to grasp how Epic this tale is, and why it can never be matched. It made me want to give them all hugs and cry along with them, but they’re used to the horrors of this world and they know what to do and how far to go to get through some of the worst that Erikson can throw at them.

A place of foreboding, its smell is of death.

Seconds later, Leoman gestures for Corabb, and asks him where they are. Who wouldn’t be driven mad by that? Instead of being his own man, he’s twelve people literally rolled into one. We learn more about dragons and their relationship to the warrens, there will be things unleashed that are better off left chained and buried, and more. You will have so many new characters to root for.

As such, his direct intervention in the matters at hand was intriguing and pretty cool to witness.

The Deck of Dragon readings in particular are so much run now, not that they weren’t before, because you know who the cards signify and can see the brilliance so much clearer. First, there’s a conversation between Paran and Hood. I fared the worse, I think. We also check in on Karsa. We also have the arcs agitated by Cotillion, Shadow Throne and his revenge on the Empress, Gonehunters Nameless Ones pulling the strings of one very confused Icarium, and the very independent of mind Karsa Orlong, who just gets better with every page!

As much as Erikson excelled at internalisation of the mind and soul, albeit a bit too much sometimes, he was boenhunters superbly adept at visualisation and crafting landscapes or scenes that befit its grimdark tag.

Breaking open their cave made them more so. I almost dropped it to 3 stars, as there were lots of WTF moments and confusing drawn out parts. This review can also be found at Booknest This single chapter was so much better than the whole Night of Knives.

The magic is incredible. I have read a lot of books this month and last and this was by far the longest which meant it felt a lot longer and I noticed the drawn out parts a lot more in comparison to my smaller books. Do you feel his stare on you, the need to witness and grow from it?

The atrocities of this constant battle for survival might overwhelm the reader with their seemingly meaningless perpetuation, but the strong plot lines, the way an arc started in book one or two finds its continuation in books five or six, the way some of our core characters are always there to center the story for us, and the constant introduction of new quirky and crazy characters with hilarious logic and laughter-inducing banter, make this otherwise tragic themes not only bearable, but even enjoyable!


The Gods and their machinations shine. When this book was good, it was fantastic. Karsa and Samar start towards a inn, and Samar warns the growing crowd off from following by threatening them with a curse. The problem with it is that we have a lot of his inner thoughts during at least two other books for this person to be killed without accomplished almost anything.

The story of the book started after the end of House of Chainswhich is approximately seven months after the epilogue in Memories of Ice.
