Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Crippled God: The Malazan Book of the Fallen 10 by Steven Erikson, read by Michael Page.

The Bonehunters are marching to Kolanse and to an unknown fate. Tormented and exhausted, they are an army on the brink of mutiny. But Adjunct Tavore will not relent. If she can hold her forces together, if the fragile alliances she has forged can survive and if it is within her power, one final act remains. For Tavore Paran means to challenge the gods. 

Ranged against Tavore and her allies are formidable foes. The Fokrul Assail are drawing upon a terrible power; their desire is to cleanse the world - to eradicate every civilisation, to annihilate every human - in order to begin anew. The Elder Gods, too, are seeking to return. And to do so, they will shatter the chains that bind a force of utter devastation and release her from her eternal prison. It seems that, once more, there will be dragons in the world. 

And in Kurald Galain, where the once-lost city of Kharkanas has been found, thousands have gathered upon the First Shore. Commanded by Yedan Derryg, they await the coming of the Tiste Liosan. Are they truly ready to die in the name of an empty city and a queen with no subjects? 

In every world there comes a time when choice is no longer an option - a moment when the soul is laid bare and there is nowhere left to turn. And when this last hard truth is faced, when compassion is a virtue on its knees, what is there left to do? Now that time is come - now is the moment to proclaim your defiance and make a stand....

And so begins the final cataclysmic chapter in Steven Erikson's extraordinary, genre-defining Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Superb

What a final book, well worth the wait. It's a pity it had to end as you get so familiar with its various characters.

End of an Epic

Truly saddened and joyed to have finished. Wasn't sure how well my favourite fantasy series would transfer to audio book but I think Michael Page did an excellent job. I hope ICE books translate just as well.
