The Bonehunters by Steven Erikson
And the traps, in their elaborate elegance, were never empty for long. View all 13 comments. Jul 19, Conor rated it it was amazing Shelves: Tell me, can you say the same for yourself? It’s a realistic reaction to a life-altering event that you can’t even control. What always surprises me with Erikson is how few there are of these people. You also could not name names, because that would be a spoiler too, in this world where characters survive impossible situations, rename themselves, are resurrected in different persons, dimensions or their souls continue on or are reborn into new bodies Here is the stunning new chapter in Steven Erikson magnificent Malazan Book of the Fallen — hailed as an epic of the imagination and acknowledged as a fantasy classic in the making.
So, bear with me if this looks like I plagiarized myself from a previous review. This is a huge series to take on. It was awesome to get a book where you never felt that boredom.
The Bonehunters–Book Six of the Malazan Book of the Fallen
I am taking a series break. Who would say that almost three years have passed since the beginning of the story in Gardens of the Moon? First, one must recognize them, and to achieve that one must think in the long term; and then one must discern the intricate linkages that exist between all things, the manner in which one problem feeds into another.
Well, more or less loyal. Cotillion then leaves the dragons, bonehuntres Edgewalker following, who acknowledges that he underestimated him and may be inclined to give support to his Cotillion’s cause. With the addition of the berserkers in fanaticism and the searing firestorm that cloaked its thw in flame and boiling blood; all of these demonstrated a festival of destruction that humanity, gods, and fanaticism can bring and also at the same time, displayed a celebration of perseverance that made me shook my head in penitence and awe.
Dec 25, Chris Berko rated it it was amazing.
Nothing less than existence itself But in this book? The Bonehunters without a doubt was another one of those bonehuntrrs rare 6 out of 5 stars read. Not to the unsuspecting, at least.
The writing is amazing, we have some new characters and POVs but that is not new in Malazan, the only issue I have here is the internal monologue, this book has more of that than the previous ones. So who needs brains to soldier?
More about Steven Erikson. All-in-all, very solid addition to the Malazan series! Not because it wasn’t a terrific story, as good as DHG and MOI if not better, but because they elicited rage from me at the unfairness of it all. The fourth was a monkey spank. They have sold off bonegunters horses in the city for food and supplies, and haven’t heard from L’oric in a long time. I felt that this book, despite being too long in places, it drew me into the story and forced me to watch and sympathise with everything and everyone.
This instalment fights hard to be the best of the series, it is in my top 3 without doubt. This one was the most “cinematic” for me. And one thing that we know about Karsa is that he carries all of his ghosts, all the spirits tye people he had killed — and he was busy in that work — chained around him.
But that can get boring, sometimes. As for the enjoyment levels whilst reading this I would say that this is a hard one to thd about because jalazan I did really adore some of the book e. And so we weep for the fallen. The multiple switches between POVs in a single book chapter which can be very long in itself worked really well, conveying a tension of what’s happening ‘on-screen’ in a cinematic manner. There was justice and some injustice both being served.
Bonehunterd distract her, I’ll stick a knife in her back. Beyond amazing storytelling that does not insult your intelligence. There shall be war, war in the boneuhnters. Who wouldn’t be driven mad by that?
And that cast I mentioned earlier is still bursting with varied, colorful characters. The titles of the books thus far have fallen into two categories: It seems victory is assured; there is only one minor problem: Erikson uses it as a handy mid season finale.
The shape of the story is finally starting to be revealed and I think it’s gonna continue to be a seminal work. Bonehuntrrs attacks, and Apsalar kills the man.
And I haven’t told you of Apsalar, my poor poor Apsalar. Kalam, Kalam, don’t tug Cotillion’s rope, he has a weird sense of humour. There’s only so much of the book I could focus on at any time, so there were fairly wide swaths that I just let roll over me. After entering a tavern, the tavern keeper questions whether she is attached to Dujek ‘s army, to which she answers “I belong to no army. Seeing Baran behind stalking him, Edgewalker tells him that while for Cotillion he walks paths unseen, the Hounds can feel his presence.
