Finished the sixth book in the Malazan Book of Fallen, The Bonehunters, a couple of weeks ago and have been reading The Return of the Crimson Guard by Ian C. Esselmont. This also a Malazan book and I have to admit I thought it was pretty meh in the beginning. However I gave it a chance and it is readable, though no where close to the awesomeness that Erikson brings in the main series. In all honesty reading Erikson for months before starting this book may have been why it seemed so mediocre; guy is just an amazing writer.

Stick with these books, they are fantastic. Equal to the LoTR other than the fact that I read the LoTR first and many, many years ago so have an emotional tie.

Truly one of the greatest set of books written, I can not say enough about them.

Enjoy
(Now watch you will hate them 8) )

Started a historical fiction series about Genghis Khan by Conn Iggulden. He also wrote a similar series about Julius Ceasar that I read and enjoyed.
