The small island of Malaz and its city gave the great empire its name, but now it is little more than a sleepy, backwater port. Tonight, however, things are different. Tonight the city is on edge, a hive of hurried, sometimes violent activity; its citizens bustle about, barring doors, shuttering windows, avoiding any stranger's stare. Because tonight there is to be a convergence, the once-in-a-generation appearance of a Shadow Moon - an occasion that threatens the good people of Malaz withdemon hounds and other, darker things ... It was also prophesied that this night would witness the return of Emperor Kellanved, and there are those prepared to do anything to prevent this happening. As factions within the greater Empire draw up battle lines over the imperial throne, the Shadow Moon summons a far more ancient and potent presence for an all-out assault upon the island. Witnessing these cataclysmic events are Kiska, a young girl who yearns to flee the constraints of the city, and Temper, a grizzled, battle-weary veteranwho seeks simply to escape his past. Each is to play a part in a conflict that will not only determine the fate of Malaz City, but also of the world beyond ... Drawing on events touched on in the prologue of Steven Erikson's landmark fantasyGardens of the Moon,Night of Knives is a momentous chapter in the unfolding story of the extraordinarily imagined world of Malaz.… (mais)

When he stops describing how dank Malaz is, does the book start? ( )

I'm trying to read these in publication order, so broke away from the main line at the start of Bonehunters to read this. I enjoyed Esslemont's writing and thought the story did a great job of fitting into the shared universe while also filling in a few gaps along the way. Highly enjoyed. ( )

Updated after re-read in 03/2015: Now trying to read the series chronologically. Not much to add to my previous review, except that the way Esslemont sometimes describes the same scene from different perspectives is really clever.

After finishing [b:The Crippled God|8447255|The Crippled God (The Malazan Book of the Fallen, #10)|Steven Erikson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320388198s/8447255.jpg|13311158], I decided to loiter in the world of malazan and started reading this book (Mostly because I fear that if I start reading another series before continuing with Malazan books, I will have forgotten all the characters and will be unable to understand what is going on).

It was a short book, especially compared to the 10 000 pages of the main series (d'oh), so there was not as much space for character development (Perhaps the thing I enjoyed most about the original series), but all in all, I don't feel like I have "wasted time" reading this book. It was a good read, it answered some of the pressing questions I had about Cotillion and Shadowthrone, not to mention Dassem Ultor. It feels like it belongs into the world, which is probably the most important thing.

Ian C Esslemont is obviously no Erikson (Which makes sense, considering that that position is already taken). His style is different from Eriksons, but not in a bad way. And since this book has the second reference to a stuck weather vane in Malaz City, I want to know what all that is about. So, bring it on, Esslemont. Return of the crimson Guard is in the mail. ( )

If you have made the commitment to undertake The Malazan Book of the Fallen, it will in all likelihood be the most challenging and rewarding reading experiences you will ever undertake. I couldn't imagine, after having tackled that endeavor, you wouldn't want to take some time to read this small, enjoyable, and enriching entry into the Malazan Empire.
