For there is a new Emperor on the throne of Malaz, and he is dwelling on the ignominy that is the Empire's failed invasion of the Korel subcontinent. In the vaults beneath Unta, the Imperial capital, lie the answers to that disaster. And out of this buried history surfaces the name Stonewielder.
In Korel, Lord Protector Hiam, commander of the Stormguard, faces the potential annihilation of all that he holds dear. With few remaining men and a crumbling stone wall that has seen better days, he confronts an ancient enemy: the sea-borne Stormriders have returned.
Religious war also threatens these lands. The cult of the Blessed Lady, which had stood firm against the Riders for millennia, now seeks to eradicate its rivals. And as chaos looms, a local magistrate investigating a series of murders suddenly finds himself at the heart of a far more ancient and terrifying crime - one that has tainted an entire land....
Stonewielder is an enthralling new chapter in the epic story of a thrillingly imagined world that takes place in the timeline right after the New York Times bestseller Dust of Dreams left off.

I love the universe that Erickson and Esselmont have created, but Esselmonts writing lacks the depth and complexity of his partner. This isn't helped by a narrator who doesn't know how to pronounce basic English and arbitrarily raises and lowers the volume of his voice, meaning I have to relisten to parts immediately after hearing them with the volume cranked up and hope I can turn it back down before he resumes the normal volume and I end up deaf.

I had little faith in ICE
I'm the biggest The Malazan Book of the Fallen fan there ever is. I'm ready to die after her finishes his trilogy. So I decided I wanted more of Malaz and decided to give Esslemont a try. Well I read NoK and it was absolute trash. Then I read RotCG which was even more confusing that GotM on account of its sloppy writing, though the plot was great. Now finally I've struck gold. This book was great that at some points I even forgot Steven Erikson didn't write it. I had no faith in this book but by listening to ICE's most recent book Dancer's Lament I had the evidence of tighter more compelling writing that I needed to pick back up his main series. It was worth it. I loved this return to Wu!
