The Crippled God - The Malazan Book of the Fallen

I've been making my way through the epic to end all epics: The Malazan Book of the Fallen.
This is the final tome, #10, in Steven Erikson's award-winning series. I'm in the last stretch, with maybe 50 pages to go.
Page 75 (of 928 pages) 
'If it weren't for me you'd still be clinging halfway up that cliff, a clutch of bones with birds nesting in your hair and spiders in your eye sockets.' 
'If it weren't for you I'd never have tried climbing it.'
'Yes you would' 
'Why do you say that?'                                    
'Because, Stormy, you never think.'

Mini Review:
The Malazan series is for a reader with stamina and patience. The books are long-winded, and span millenia, numerous races, Gods and more.  
(This is my excuse for having a longer than 2 sentence teaser). In the end, it is all worth it!
I'd recommend this series to fans of fantasy, Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, war stories.

Do read a recent post, perhaps a review of the latest Buffy graphic novel by Joss Whedon.

  7. What a creepy beginning to the teaser. Thanks for sharing! :)

  8. Don't you just love the soul consuming epic-ness of this series? I started reading this series in high school, and it was one of the first fantasy series I read. To this day it continues to be #1 on my list of favorites. I still haven't gotten time around to read the last few books. I think I might as well start from the beginning and re-read the whole series!

    Excellent teaser!Here is mine http://amysbookden.blogspot.com/2011/07/teaser-tuesdays-2.html
