The Crippled God has a fan in UCLA linebacker Deon Hollins just talked about it for about 45 seconds during Fox's pregame show.

I finally staggered through the last two books. Good to see so many beloved characters come back to stick the landing but man, it was a long, winding, and pretty disorganized trip to get there. The big convergence chapters were sensational though.

I really enjoy the sheer scope of the Malazan world and the richness of its lore. I think I've spent more time browsing the wiki page than actually reading the book haha.

New blurb for Dancer's Lament:

Taking Malazan fans back to that troubled continent's turbulent early history. the opening chapter in Ian C. Esslemont's epic new fantasy sequence, the Path to Ascendancy trilogy.

For ages warfare has crippled the continent as minor city states, baronies, and principates fought in an endless round of hostilitites. Only the alliance of the rival Tali and Quon cities could field the resources to mount a hegemony from coast to coast -- and thus become known as Quon Taili.

It is a generation since the collapse of this dynasty and regional powers are once more rousing themselves. Into this arena of renewed border wars come two youths to the powerful central city state that is LiHeng. One is named Dorin, and he comes determined to prove himself the most skilled assassin of his age; he is chasing the other youth -- a Dal Hon mage who has proven himself annoyingly difficult to kill.

Li Heng has been guided and warded for centuries by the powerful sorceress known as the "Protectress" and she allows no rivals. She and her cabal of five mage servants were enough to repel the Quon Tali Iron Legions -- what could two youths hope to accomplish under their stifling rule?

Yet under the new and ambitious King Chulalorn the Third, Itko Kan is on the march from the south. He sends his own assassin servants, the Nightblades, against the city, and there are hints that he also commands inhuman forces out of legend.

While above all, shadows swirl oddly about Li Heng, and monstrous slathering beasts seem to appear from nowhere to run howling through the street. It is a time of chaos and upheaval, and in chaos, as the young Dal Hon mage would say, there is opportunity.

Yeah, much better than the previous Back of a Viking looking guy staring at dark clouds they've been using.

Beautiful.

Also, we can post pictures now!?

Yes, but then we could on the old forum for the first few days until we realised it would destroy the servers. Interesting to see if the feature sticks this time :)

Im determined to finish Memories of Ice by the end of the year. I'm loving the scenes with Tool so far. I think the T'lan Imass are so badass.
