So, I borrowed the second book of Erikson’s Malazan Empire of the Fallen series from my local library. It’s good; it’s rather like Cook’s Black Company, in terms of being a magic heavy, grim sort of military fantasy.
However, even though there are something like eight more books to go, I think I’m done. I’m not sure I really care enough about the characters, which is as much to do with the fact that it’s been too long since I read the first book and my memory’s a little vague. Erikson packs these books with characters and I would have to read them at a pretty good pace to keep everything reasonably fresh in my mind and I’m just not prepared to take that step.
