The ravaged continent of Genabackis has given birth to a terrifying new empire: the Pannion Domin. Like a tide of corrupted blood, it seethes across the land, devouring all. In its path stands an uneasy alliance: Onearm's army and Whiskeyjack's Bridgeburners alongside their enemies of old--the forces of the Warlord Caladan Brood, Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii mages, and the Rhivi people of the plains.

But ancient undead clans are also gathering; the T'lan Imass have risen. For it would seem something altogether darker and more malign threatens this world. Rumors abound that the Crippled God is now unchained and intent on a terrible revenge.

Marking the return of many characters from Gardens of the Moon and introducing a host of remarkable new players, Memories of Ice is both a momentous new chapter in Steven Erikson's magnificent epic fantasy and a triumph of storytelling.

When I was writing a paper for an english class about what I wanted to do with my life. I was struggling with the paper, no ideas. As I sat there reading the instructions a small line from this book popped in my mind. With the line, I finished the paper. The way this author builds this world makes it elegant and memorable. When you read the book, you feel for the characters. Every action can be reasoned with, every word has a meaning, and every major character has an agenda.

Read from December 25, 2013 to January 12, 2014
The last 100 pages blew my mind. The Mhybe and Itkovian subplots were the best. I'm now convinced that Steven Erikson is the best in the genre.
I'm now reading The House of Chains.
