Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Deadhouse Landing by Ian C. Esslemont, read by John Banks.
Returning fans to the turbulent early history of what would become the Malazan Empire, the second chapter in Ian C. Esslemont's thrilling new epic fantasy sequence....
After the disappointments of Li Heng, Dancer and Kellanved wash up on a small insignificant island named Malaz. Immediately, of course, Kellanved plans to take it over. To do so they join forces with a small band of Napans who have fled a civil war on their own home island. The plan, however, soon goes awry as Kellanved develops a strange and dangerous fascination for a mysterious ancient structure found on the island.
The chaos in the region extends to the metaphysical planes also as a young priest of D'rek starts to question the rot at the heart of the worship of the god of decay. And back in Li Heng, Dassem, now the proclaimed Sword of Hood, finds himself being blamed for a plague which leads him to a crisis of faith - and searching for answers.
During all this, war with the neighbouring island of Nap threatens, recruited allies wonder at Kellanved's sanity, and powerful entities take more of an interest in the little mage from Dal Hon. Dancer faces a hard choice: should he give up on his partnership? Especially when the fellow's obsession with shadows and ancient artefacts brings the both of them alarmingly close to death and destruction.
After all, who in his right mind would actually wish to enter an Elder mystery known to everyone as the 'Deadhouse'?

Ian's best effort yet

I'm only half-way through this book, and really loving it so far.

I've found that Ian's writing has improved over time, and that finally some of the characters backgrounds that we know from his and Stephen's previous books are being told, and told in an interesting and meaningful way.

I think this is the first time I've felt any real "pay-off", reading Ian's books. There were so many characters to explore and it's great we are finally getting to hear about them.

I'm hoping I enjoy the rest of the book and can't wait for the 3rd if he manages to keep up the good work.
