Orb Sceptre Throne (Malazan Empire #4)

Orb Sceptre Throne

Malazan Empire #4

3 Stars



I thought they would be the untouchables. The perfect race of peoples untouched by the cloud of despair and shame that Erickson and Esslemont visited upon every other race.

I should have known better.

And yet another Tyrant rises. And we find it out WHY tyrants kept rising in Darujistahn. Which is good, because my first reaction to another tyrant was “great, a copy of the end of Gardens of the Moon”.

And lots of other things going on. I do wish that Esslemont would stick to 2-3 plot threads. I prefer his writing that way. Let me get pissed off at Erikson for the big stuff…

    1. Preparation for today’s review. Up until ’13 or so, all my reviews were lumped together in one monthly post. So any time I want to link to an old review, I’ve been linking to Booklikes. But I realized that can’t go on, so now whenever I link to an old review, I create it here on wordpress and backdate it.

      I suspect you’ll be seeing more of these in ’18.
