Weak What a letdown At least 50% or of the book is about the origin stories of Crimson Guard characters that I care nothing about The parts with Kellenved and Dancer were great and I enjoyed those but the rest was just weak And this isn't really a spoiler I don't think but Dancer and Kellenved don't ascend by the end of

Esslemont Summary Kellanved's Reach The incessant war between the bickering city states of uon Tali rages So engrossed are the warring lords and princes in their own petty feuds that few notice that an upstart mage from Dal Hon has gained control of the southern seas But some powers are alarmedAnd in the meantime as Purge and Tali indulge in what seems like a their never ending game of war a mercenary caught up in the fight between the two states suddenly refuses to play along and causes all sorts of chaos Simultaneously a pair of escapees fr. Right I m going to start with some opinions they re intrinsically linked and maybe slightly controversial but that s ok because I m up for an argument or two So don t read these books before Erikson s Malazan Book of the Fallen and if you don t have a passion for that series and the big name characters in it that borders on an unhealthy obsession don t bother with them at all Every part of what makes these preuels worth reading is the chance to experience what comes before seeing where characters come from how they meet the way they get their namesnicknames what they re like before or as they become legend There s a thrill in reading hints about who someone is and guessing or knowing the answer before it s given There s trepidation in registering the fractures that are going to crack wide enough to shatter worlds shake the gods swallow armies and end lives on an uncountable scale There are meaningful layered conversations that can only be understood in reference to what comes afterwards and there are silly jokes that work in the same way The seeds of destruction are laid out before the reader here and we know they end For fans it s hard to resist As for the plot that surrounds it all it s light and often fun but limited in what it achieves It s easy enough that it feels like it should be an entry point to a series which some might see as overly complicated or unapproachable HOWEVER it is not please see above for details The hill I m going to die on start with Gardens of the Moon or just read something else you enjoyEven though this is still described everywhere as far as I can see as a trilogy Kellanved s Reach doesn t feel like the end of anything Whether that means books in the Path to Ascendancy or the arbitrary creation of another series title to cover what comes next who knows but there s still so much ground to cover There was certainly a hell of a lot of time spent on introducing new characters if there s not going to be from them soon It was problematic for this instalment in any case taking away the focus from Kellanved and Dancer They are the glue that held together Dancer s Lament and Deadhouse Landing after all it is predominantly their path to Ascendancy that we re supposed to be following They fade in and out of the picture in this book see what I did with a bucket load of new characters taking their place Obviously many of those were cracking additions but honestly the structure couldn t take the weight And this is the essential problem with Esslemont s writing and the relative shortness of his books neither allow for the necessary depth Everything just that bit too clunky and repetitive I m not sure how many times we re reminded that Dancer makes sure to take his trusty length of ropeyes we get it Once is enough It s part of a general lack of consistency some things said again and again others rushed through The ending seemed like it was going to be a proper Malazan style climax thenwasn t So not only is there not enough time to do each of the storylines properly the time spent on each isn t always utilised that well This is particularly evident in the later part of this instalment jumping from one thing to the next and barely managing to get the highlights down There s no emotion here save that we carry with us and it s kinda shoddy for the author to rely on that All this sounds like I didn t much enjoy the book which I did but it worries me that things are already starting to slide The first two books were unabashed fun this one tries to do too much with too little and doesn t hit the mark I hope whatever comes next picks that energy back up because otherwise the impact of all the hugely important stuff just around the corner is going to be non existent It s genuinely going to be sadder to read it like that than it it would be to not have it at all Here s hoping thenARC via Netgalley

Esslemont Summary Kellanved's Reach Ic nor ephemeral No it is of an altogether darker and dangerous hue It involves the Elder races themselves and specifically certainly alarmingly the semi mythic and universally dreaded Army of Dust and BoneSurely no one in their right mind would be so foolish as to embark on a journey from which none have returned Well no one except Kellanved that is Returning to the turbulent early history of what would become the Malazan Empire here is the third awesome chapter in Ian C Esslemont's new epic fantasy seuenc. The enigmatic sorcerer Kellanved has seized control of Malaz Island His cohort and ally Surly plots the conuest of her homeland the Napan Isles Meanwhile the mainland of uon Tali is wracked by war and civil war Purge and Tali are locked in incessant conflict in the west whilst to the east the Bloorian League is trying to crush the city of Gris Conflict stalks the world but great changes are coming in the warrens as well as Kellanved seeks the Throne of Shadow and also the First Throne of the T lan Imass the Army of Dust and BoneKellanved s Reach is the third novel in Ian Esslemont s Path to Ascendancy series which acts as a preuel to both the Malazan Book of the Fallen seuence by Steven Erikson and Esslemont s own earlier Malazan Empire series Following on from Dancer s Lament and Deadhouse Landing this book continues the story of Kellanved and Dancer the founders of the Malazan EmpireThe events described in this trilogy and in this single novel especially are vast epic and the stuff of myth Kellanved s seizure of the First Throne his alliance with the T lan Imass and the military campaigns which saw the Malazan Empire start coming together have been referenced in hushed tones throughout the sixteen novels of both of Erikson and Esslemont s original series so to see those events first hand is thrilling Or rather it should beIf one word comes to mind when reading Kellanved s Reach it is rushed The book is only 330 pages long barely a third as long as some of Erikson s books and Esslemont tries to fit into this modest page count no less than five major military campaigns a major subplot with Kellanved and Dancer exploring the Shadow Realm and the stories of numerous POV characters There simply isn t enough room to do this justice and as a result we end up bouncing back and forth between characters and stories like a pinball machine Massive major events like the nascent empire s capture of the strategically vital city of Cawn take place in sentences let along paragraphs and the epic final battle which ends with Kellanved s crowning feels perfunctory at bestThis is a shame because the improvement in Esslemont s writing and character voice which has been building since Dancer s Lament continues apace here The early chapters which relax a little to focus on the military campaigns on opposite coasts of the continent are well written and excellent and it s fun to see future important characters like Greymane and Skinner arise from the masses to start their own steps down the road to destiny But around the halfway mark the pace accelerates and suddenly major plot events are whizzing by like they ve been shot out of a machine gunThere s still much to enjoy here of course even if the later chapters of the book do start feeling like a plot summary than a novel I suspect it will be even frustrating as if as seems possible books in this series follow Path to Ascendancy was contracted for three books but the series has sold extremely well so it may be extended There s plenty of scope if so the book ends with Kellanved crowned but only a very small part of uon Tali under his control and it d be interesting to fill the gaps in between this book and Night of Knives set roughly 100 years later where Kellanved s plans are finally fully realisedKellanved s Reach is a reasonably solid addition to the Malazan mythos with some genuinely exciting myth making moments It also feels like the novel should have been either twice as long as it is or its events should have been split over two books As it stands the brake neck pacing means that the emotional resonance and dramatic power of some long awaited scenes are diluted The book is available in the UK now and next month in the USA
