In the vast dominion of Seven Cities, in the Holy Desert Raraku, the seer Sha'ik and her followers prepare for the long-prophesied uprising known as the Whirlwind. Unprecedented in size and savagery, this maelstrom of fanaticism and bloodlust will embroil the Malazan Empire in one of the bloodiest conflicts it has ever known, shaping destinies and giving birth to legends . . .
Set in a brilliantly realized world ravaged by dark, uncontrollable magic, this thrilling novel of war, intrigue and betrayal confirms Steven Eirkson as a storyteller of breathtaking skill, imagination and originality--a new master of epic fantasy.

Review:

"A meticulously realised otherworld...ambitious and scrupulously crafted" (SFX)

"A world of evocative magic, brutal warfare and poetry unlike anything I'd read before...the publication of a second novel is always a tense time - was the author a one hit wonder? Fortunately for us, Deadhouse Gates triumphantly proves that this is not the case for Steve Erikson" (Ottakar's Outland website)

"If you're looking for a low calorie dish of light fantasy, this ain't it. If you're looking for a nine-course riot of taste and texture, exotically spiced to make your eyes water, your heart pump faster and your brain do cartwheels inside your cranium, I know a great little Thai place. Or, if you want something analogous to that in your reading, stop at the 'Es' and pick up the latest from Steven Erikson...I can safely say that Deadhouse Gates is one of the best fantasy novels of 2000" (Neil Walsh SF Site)

"Erikson afflicts me with awe...his work does something that only the rarest of books can manage: it alters the reader's perceptions of reality" (Stephen R Donaldson)

Book Description:

The second book in Steven Erikson's thrilling epic fantasy series chronicling the ill-fated Malazan Empire.
