Weakened by events in Darujhistan, the Malazan Empire teeters on the brink of anarchy. In the vast dominion of Seven Cities, in the Holy Desert Raraku, the seer Sha'ik gathers an army around her in preparation for the long-prophesied uprising named the Whirlwind. Unprecedented in its size and savagery, it will embroil in one of the bloodiest conflicts it has ever known: a maelstrom of fanaticism and bloodlust that will shape destinies and give birth to legends... In the Otataral mines, Felisin, youngest daughter of the disgraced House of Paran, dreams of revenge against the sister who sentenced her to a life of slavery. Escape leads her to raraku, where her soul will be reborn and her future made clear. The now-outlawed Bridgeburners, Fiddler and the assassin Kalam, have vowed to return the once god-possessed Apsalar to her homeland, and to confront and kill the Empress Laseen, but events will overtake them too. Meanwhile, Coltaine, the charismatic commander of the Malaz 7th Army, will lead his battered, war-weary troops in a last, valient running battle to save the lives of thirty thousand refugees and, in so doing, secure an illustrious place in the Empire's chequered history. And into this blighted land come two ancient wanderers, Mappo and his half-Jaghut companion Icarium, bearers of a devastating secret that threatens to break free of its chains... Set in a brilliantly-realized world ravaged by anarchy and dark, uncontrollable magic, Deadhouse Gates is the thrilling, brutal second chapter in the Malazan Book of the Fallen. A powerful novel of war, intrigue and betrayal, it confirms Steven Erikson as a storyteller of breathtaking skill, imagination and originality - a new master of epic fantasy.

  1. Ett mästerligt fantasyepos
    Nomman, 2 december 2021

    Deadhouse Gates är en underbart tegelstensepos av den moderna fantasylitteraturens klarast lysande stjärna, Steven Erikson.

    Boken är den andra delen i Malazan Book of the Fallen, som inleds med Gardens of the Moon. Det märks att Eriksons författande har utvecklats sedan den första boken, då Deadhoues Gates trots att den är längre än Gardens of the Moon är mer sammanhängande och lätt att följa. Med det sagt tar det ändå flera hundra sidor att få en känsla för alla det (många!) nya kar... Läs hela recensionen

  2. Malazanserien <3
    Mikael Lindström, 17 september 2019

    Anledningen att jag köpte boken var inte för att läsa den själv för första gången utan för att jag gett bort min förra kopia till en kompis, efter att ha gett bort den första boken i serien, för jag vill att fler ska läsa den för att den är så otroligt bra!

Arguably the best fantasy series ever written. This is of course subject to personal opinion . . . but few can deny that the quality and ambition of the ten books that make up The Malazan Book of the Fallen are unmatched within the genre * FANTASY BOOK REVIEW * Reading The Malazan Book of the Fallen . . . is the most masterful piece of fiction I have ever read. It has single-handedly changed everything we thought we knew about fantasy literature and redefined what is possible * SF SITE * Erikson's magnum opus, The Malazan Book of the Fallen, sits in pole position as the very best and most ambitious epic fantasy saga ever written * FANTASY HOTLIST * Erikson afflicts me with awe...his work does something that only the rarest of books can manage: it alters the reader's perceptions of reality -- Stephen R Donaldson If you're looking for a low calorie dish of light fantasy, this ain't it. If you're looking for a nine-course riot of taste and texture, exotically spiced to make your eyes water, your heart pump faster and your brain do cartwheels inside your cranium, I know a great little Thai place. Or, if you want something analogous to that in your reading, stop at the 'Es' and pick up the latest from Steven Erikson...I can safely say that Deadhouse Gates is one of the best fantasy novels of 2000 -- Neil Walsh * SF Site *
