Anyone reading Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen will want to check this one out. Night of Knives details one violent, bloody night of murder and betrayal… One night that shaped the world Erikson writes about.
Emperor Kellanved and Dancer return from their mysterious journey, and Surly's ready to make her move to claim the throne of the Empire. There are other, darker forces at play as well, and just because you know the outcome doesn't mean you have any idea what's going to happen.
In a stark contrast to Erikson's uber epic writing style, Esslemont crashes into the action full force, with an economical style not usually seen in this genre.
