"Reading The Malazan Book of the Fallen is an experience. It will amaze you in more ways than I can predict...without a doubt, it is the most masterful piece of fiction I have ever read. It has single-handedly changed everything we thought we knew about fantasy literature and redefined what is possible" SF SITE "Arguably the best fantasy series ever written. This is of course subject to personal opinion...but few can deny that the quality and ambition of the ten books that make up The Malazan Book of the Fallen are unmatched within the genre" FANTASY BOOK REVIEW "Erikson's magnum opus, The Malazan Book of the Fallen, sits in pole position as the very best and most ambitious epic fantasy saga ever written.
