    Forge of Darkness takes listeners to Kurald Galain, the warren of Darkness, and tells of a realm whose fate plays a crucial role in the fall of the Malazan Empire and surrounds one of the Malazan world’s most fascinating and powerful characters, Anomander Rake. It’s a conflicted time in Kurald Galain, where Mother Dark reigns above the Tiste people. But this ancient land was once home to many a power...and even death is not quite eternal. The commoners’ great hero, Vatha Urusander, longs for ascendency and Mother Dark’s hand in marriage, but she has taken another Consort, Lord Draconus.

    Michael says: "A Precursor Epic Fantasy - A Rewarding Beginning!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Forge of Darkness the most enjoyable?

    I'm a huge fan of Steven Erikson and his mythic, Malazan, decalogy so, naturally, an appointment with Forge of Darkness was on my calendar. His twisting depths of narrative never cease to enthral, and this is no exception. I am an avid reader but thoroughly enjoy the freedom an audiobook can grant.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Wonderful detail, the intricate unfolding of character relationships, with the customary amount of humour, and the beautiful mythic, overall plot. What is not to like?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Well, there is the matter of the continuity and correct pronunciation of names from the previous books, which does seem careless given the amount of loving fans who surely will have noticed this. It would be well worth while obtaining a list of correct pronunciations from Erikson himself to finally end the confusion amongst the different narrators of his works.
