Description

The great thing is we still have two ongoing series from Erikson and at least another 2 books left in this series.

I didn’t expect this volume to be so Tayschrenn centric, but it does such a fantastic job revealing the underpinnings of this enigmatic man. He'll never reach the heights of Steven Erikson but not all Malazan books have to be 1000-page tomes full of philosophy. Most people have stopped that (not all, for some reason) and now you can enjoy his books and let them shine for what they are.He is probably in my favorite Malazan characters and apparently he is heavily involved in other Esslemont works so i am really excited for that. When I got the book and accidentally opened it to a page where this is happening, I let out the mother of all squeals. A somewhat rag-tag army, joined by a similarly motley fleet under the command of the Emperor himself.

Granted, Deadhouse Landing has started the Tay-arc and already portrayed him as something of a socially inept recluse. ICE, earlier in his Malazan days, suffered the curse of being continually compared to the incomparable, Erikson.As ever, the excellent magic system (through the use of warrens) is finely showcased here and, for the most part, I found my reading experience to be extremely rewarding; leading me to score Forge of the High Mage an 8/10 rating. This led me to reflect, are these set pieces truly engrossing me as much as they could as I know which characters survive (having read eighteen Malazan books so far) and have already concluded who I should be rooting for prior to these exchanges? Forge of the High Mage is a book that I have been eagerly awaiting since I finished my early review copy of Kellanved’s Reach in January 2019. Here, then, in the tracts of the Ice Wastes and among the islands of Falar, the Empire of Malaz faces two seemingly insurmountable tests - each one potentially the origin of its destruction.
