After finishing the two main series, Erikson and Esslemont continued on to further projects in the Malazan universe. While writing the last novels in The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Erikson decided that his next project, The Kharkanas Trilogy, would be a "trilogy traditional in form," saying the following: "If the Malazan series emphasized a postmodern critique of the subgenre of epic fantasy, paying subtle homage all the while, the Kharkanas Trilogy subsumes the critical aspects and focuses instead on the homage.
Information on the third novel, Walk in Shadow, is forthcoming. At one point, Steven Erikson indicated that the two authors would collaborate on The Encyclopedia Malaz, an extensive guide to the series, which was to be published following the last novel in the main sequence. Instead, several storylines progress simultaneously, with the individual novels moving backwards and forwards between them.
As the series progresses, links between these storylines become more readily apparent.

During a book signing in November , Steven Erikson confirmed that the Malazan saga consists of three major story arcs, equating them to the points of a triangle. The first plotline takes place on the continent of Genabackis where armies of the Malazan Empire are battling the native city-states for dominance.
An elite Malazan military unit, the Bridgeburners, is the focus for this storyline, although as it proceeds their erstwhile enemies, the Tiste Andii led by Anomander Rake and the mercenaries commanded by Warlord Caladan Brood, also become prominent.
The novel Gardens of the Moon depicts an attempt by the Malazans to seize control of the city of Darujhistan. Memories of Ice , the third novel released in the sequence, continues the unresolved plot threads from Gardens of the Moon by having the now-outlawed Malazan armies uniting with their former enemies to confront a new, mutual threat known as the Pannion Domin. Toll the Hounds, the eighth novel in the series, revisits Genabackis some years later as new threats arise to Darujhistan and the Tiste Andii who now control the city of Black Coral.
The second plotline takes place on the subcontinent of Seven Cities and depicts a major native uprising against Malazan rule.
This rebellion is known as 'the Whirlwind'. The story of the pursuit, and the event itself, is referred to as the Chain of Dogs.
The fourth novel, House of Chains , sees the continuation of this storyline with newly arrived Malazan reinforcements — the 14th Army — taking the war to the rebels. The 14th's exploits earn them the nickname, 'The Bonehunters'. The third plotline was introduced with Midnight Tides , the fifth book released in the series.

This novel introduces a previously unknown continent where two nations, the united tribes of the Tiste Edur and the Empire of Lether, are engaged in escalating tensions, which culminate in open warfare.
The novel takes place contemporaneously with earlier books in the sequence and the events in it are in fact being related in flashback by a character from the fourth volume to one of his comrades although the novel itself is told in the traditional third-person form.
The sixth book, The Bonehunters , sees all three plot strands combined, with the now-reconciled Malazan army from Genabackis arriving in Seven Cities to aid in the final defeat of the rebellion. At the same time, fleets from the newly proclaimed Letherii Empire are scouring the globe for worthy champions to face their immortal emperor in battle, in the process earning the enmity of elements of the Malazan Empire.
The seventh novel, Reaper's Gale , sees the Malazan 14th Army arriving in Lether to take the battle to the Letherii homeland.
The ninth and tenth novels, Dust of Dreams and The Crippled God, picks up the storyline on the Lether continent and deal with the activities of the 14th Army following their successful 'liberation' of the Letherii people and the revelation that the K'Chain Che'Malle species and Forkrul Assail species have returned.
The 14th Army is attempting to deal with the peril that the Crippled God has caused with his attempts to poison the warrens and to wake Burn.
Ian Cameron Esslemont's novels are labeled as Novels of the Malazan Empire, not as parts of the Malazan Book of the Fallen itself, and deal primarily with the Malazan Empire, its internal politics and characters who only play minor roles in Erikson's novels. His first novel, Night of Knives , details events in Malaz City on the night that the Emperor Kellanved was assassinated.
The second, Return of the Crimson Guard , investigates the fall-out in the Malazan Empire from the devastating losses of the Genabackan, Korelri and Seven Cities campaigns following the events of The Bonehunters.
Esslemont's third novel, Stonewielder , explores events on the Korelri continent for the first time in the series and focuses on the often-mentioned, rarely seen character of Greymane.
The fourth novel, Orb Sceptre Throne , revisits Genebackis once again in the wake of Erikson's Toll the Hounds, and features several well known characters seen in Erikson's novels. Further comments by Esslemont and Erikson have hinted that Esslemont's fifth novel, Blood and Bone visits the continent of Jacuruku and the sixth, Assail, set on the continent of Assail, will serve as a closing chapter and coda for the entire series.
Influences[ edit ] In a general review of The Cambridge Companion to Fantasy Literature, edited by Edward James and Farah Mendlesohn , Erikson fired a shot across the bow of "the state of scholarship in the fantastic as it pertains to epic fantasy,"  taking particularly to task James's opening lines in Chapter 5 of that volume.
Erikson uses a handful of words from that chapter as an epigraph for a quasi-autobiographical essay in The New York Review of Science Fiction. James's sentences read in full: " J. Tolkien said that the phrase 'In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit' came to his unconscious mind while marking examination papers; he wrote it on a blank page in an answer book.
From that short sentence, one might claim, much of the modern fantasy genre emerged. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings —5 henceforth LOTR looms over all the fantasy written in English—and in many other languages—since its publication; most subsequent writers of fantasy are either imitating him or else desperately trying to escape his influence.
In my youth, I sidestepped Tolkien entirely, finding my inspiration and pleasure in the genre through Howard , Burroughs , and Leiber.
As my own gaming experience advanced, it was not long before I abandoned those tropes Accordingly, my influences in terms of fiction are post-Tolkien, and they came from conscious responses to Tolkien Donaldson 's Thomas Covenant series and unconscious responses to Tolkien Cook 's Dread Empire and Black Company series.
You're flat-out wrong.
It is a perfect description of s and s West Cork society and it is so romantic it sucks you in. It has the right pace.
Malazan Book of the Fallen
Surprisingly for such a big book, it did not take me long to get into it, just one chapter. Will definitely read more from Deirdre Purcell now.
Shamed, her parents force her to marry a widower with a large family, but when a carefree moment at a village dance leads to a violent death, a chain of events is unleashed that will change her life forever.
