This is what I've been waiting for ever since I first read Steven Erikson's Gardens of the Moon, the beginning of a partnership that won an empire. This book was great and has made me go back to the beginning of Gardens of the Moon and redu Erikson's books just to get hints into what Convergence will happen in Esslemont's next book of the series.
That being said John Banks is no Michael Paige or Ralph Lister, I only hope he can redeem himself in Esslemont's Return of the Crimson Guard. I found that he needed to work on keeping very similar voices out of each scene so as not to confuse the listener as to which character was speaking (gets rather annoying to have to keep going back just to listen to dialog more closely to know who said what).
Looking past that however, this is a brilliant beginning to the Malazan Empire and I say WELL DONE Esslemont, keep up the great work because I can't wait for the next one
an enjoyable pre-malaz story with an interesting introduction to a couple of shadowy upstarts and their plans.
I doff my hat once more to Mr Esselmont. Dark, funny, well paced and seem less as ever.

This is a great book, predates the main series very well, very well narrated also
An absolutely brilliant book which has a good balance between being light hearted and good humoured and being dark and gritty. It's nice to see development of well loved epic characters.
So good. All the books in the malazan world are awesome. And this one is particularly brilliant
