Vast legions of gods, mages, humans, dragons and all manner of creatures play out the fate of the Malazan Empire in this first book in a major epic fantasy series

The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting and bloody confrontations with the formidable Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii, ancient and implacable sorcerers. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen's rule remains absolute, enforced by her dread Claw assassins.

For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, surviving cadre mage of the Second Legion, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities of Genabackis, yet holds out. It is to this ancient citadel that Laseen turns her predatory gaze.

However, it would appear that the Empire is not alone in this great game. Sinister, shadowbound forces are gathering as the gods themselves prepare to play their hand...

Conceived and written on a panoramic scale, Gardens of the Moon is epic fantasy of the highest order--an enthralling adventure by an outstanding new voice.

Archaeologist and anthropologist Steven Erikson’s debut fantasy novel, Gardens of the Moon, was shortlisted for the World Fantasy Award and introduced readers to what would become an international bestselling sequence, the ten-book ‘The Malazan Book of the Fallen’ and which has been hailed as one of the finest works of fantasy of our time. His latest novel, Forge of Darkness, marks the beginning of an epic new series: ‘The Kharkanas Trilogy’. Steve lived in the UK for a number of years – most recently in Cornwall – before returning to Canada in 2012. He now lives in Victoria, BC.

Reviews

"Erikson is an extraordinary writer. My advice to anyone who might listen to me is, Treat yourself to Gardens of the Moon. And my entirely selfish advice to Steven Erikson is, write faster."
--Stephen R. Donaldson

"I stand slack-jawed in awe of The Malazan Book of the Fallen. This masterwork of imagination may be the high water mark of epic fantasy. This marathon of ambition has a depth and breadth and sense of vast reaches of inimical time unlike anything else available today. The Black Company, Zelazny's Amber, Vance's Dying Earth, and other mighty drumbeats are but foreshadowings of this dark dragon's hoard."
--Glen Cook

"A world that is both absorbing on a human level and full of magical sublimity... a wonderfully grand conception ...splendidly written... fiendishly readable."
— Adam Roberts
