Synopsis

In Darujhistan, the city of blue fire, it is said that love and death shall arrive dancing. It is summer and the heat is oppressive, but for the small round man in the faded red waistcoat, discomfiture is not just because of the sun. All is not well. Dire portents plague his nights and haunt the city streets like fiends of shadow. Assassins skulk in alleyways, but the quarry has turned and the hunters become the hunted.

Hidden hands pluck the strings of tyranny like a fell chorus. While the bards sing their tragic tales, somewhere in the distance can be heard the baying of Hounds...And in the distant city of Black Coral, where rules Anomander Rake, Son of Darkness, ancient crimes awaken, intent on revenge. It seems Love and Death are indeed about to arrive...hand in hand, dancing.

A thrilling, harrowing novel of war, intrigue and dark, uncontrollable magic, Toll the Hounds is the new chapter in Erikson's monumental series - epic fantasy at its most imaginative and storytelling at its most exciting.

    Funny and Tragic and Gripping

    This story started out a little rough as it returns to characters from the first novel which for me were a bit cloudy. Once I settled in it proved to be an exemplary Malazan book: witty dialogue, cynical philosophizing, dark humor sandwiched with brutal tragedy. And as always, refreshingingly for fiction, plenty of characters die off. I wish I was reading these with someone so I could wager on who's gonna be next. Loving this series. :)
