Samenvatting

The Seven Cities Rebellion is over, Sha'ik is dead, but a last rebel force remains, holed up in the city of Y'Ghatan under the fanatical command of Leoman of the Flails. The prospect of laying siege to this ancient fortress makes the battle-weary Malaz 14th Army uneasy - for it was here that the Empire's greatest champion Dassem Ultor was slain and a tide of Malazan blood spilled... But agents of a far greater conflict have made their opening moves. The Crippled God has been granted a place in the pantheon, a schism threatens, sides must be chosen but whatever each god decides, the rules have changed - and the first blood spilled will be in the mortal world: a world in which a host of characters, familiar and new, search for a fate that they might fashion by their own will. If only the gods would leave them alone. But gods are disinclined to be kind. There shall be war, war in the heavens. And the prize? Nothing less than existence itself...

Recensie(s)

This series has clearly established itself as the most significant work of epic fantasy since Stephen R. Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant * SF SITE * Extraordinarily enjoyable...Erikson is a master of lost and forgotten epochs, a weaver of ancient epics * SALON.COM * This is true myth in the making, a drawing upon fantasy to recreate histories and legends as rich as any found within our culture * INTERZONE * I stand slack jawed in awe of The Malazan Book of the Fallen. This masterwork of imagination may be the high watermark of epic fantasy -- GLEN COOK, author of The Black Company series Gripping, fast-moving, delightfully dark...Erikson brings a punchy, mesmerizing writing style into the genre of epic fantasy, making an indelible impression. Utterly engrossing -- ELIZABETH HAYDON

  • Het beste deel uit de serie?

    Ik ben begin dit jaar (2007) begonnen met de serie te lezen na verloren te zijn geraakt in deel 1 Gardens of the Moon. Niet alle delen zijn even sterk geschreven en hebben soms wat tijd nodig om het verhaal weer opgang te brengen. The Bonehunters neemt je direct weer te pakken en sleurt je mee in de verhaallijnen van de diverse (vele!) personages. Erikson ziet kans om de verhaallijnen te verweven op een manier die ik niet eerder gezien heb. De geschiedenis van de ondergang wordt vanuit de beleving van de personen beschreven, zonder dat je altijd weet welke 'kant' het goede of het kwade vertegenwoordigd. Hoofdpersonages verdwijnen (soms onverwacht) van het toneel en nieuwe verschijnen. Personages zoals de leden van de Bridgeburners, Trull Sengar, Heboric, Icarium, Karsa Orlong etc kan je een beetje als leidraad nemen, ze komen steeds weer terug in het verhaal, soms werken ze samen en soms elkaar (onbewust) tegen. Maar ook van die groep vallen er, geheel in de stijl van Erikson, een paar af. Erg sterke serie met tot nu toe Gardens of the Moon en Bonehunters als de hoogtepunten. Ik heb inmiddels Reaper's Gale (deel 7) al klaar liggen. Veel leesplezier.

    Geschreven bij The Bonehunters

    Steven Erikson is the first fantasy writer that, after six installments, seems to be able to escape the pitfall into which numerous others (i.e. and foremost Robert Jordan) have fallen. This is probably due to the fact that he knows where his story is leading and that he does not write anything that substracts from the plot and from the prose needed to unfurl his so intricately woven world, which by the way is one of the most epic and large-scaled fantasy worlds up-to-date, barring perhaps Tolkien's Middle-Earth. The Bonehunters, now , is a perfect example of two of the best traits Erikson, as a writer, has in store for us. Namely dialogue and convergence. The dialogue is not only very natural it's also extremely witty and an excellent way to transfer meaning. Sarcasm, irony, wit, it's all in the dialogue. As for convergence, Erikson is a master of it. Within each novel but what's more important, and what becomes especially clear in The Bonehunters, within the overall arc of the entire series. It's not for nothing that part 10 is called The Crippled God! So is there nothing to remark upon? Well, yes there is, but that particular complaint might cease to exist when the entire series has come to an end and things that now seem to have the aura of a Deus Ex Machina might then be entirely self-explanatory (although the term 'self-explanatory' does not really befit the Malazan Book of the Fallen). So from me nothing but praise for The Bonehunters. Roll on Reaper's Gale!
