    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!"
    "I can't believe I have to wait for the next book!"

    Story
    Where does Forge of Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right at the top. The production is great, the narrator is engaging and consistent. Erikson is at his most philosophical and his prose is deliciously dark, but at times still warm and humorous.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Draconus. He is the beating heart of the book for me.


    What about Daniel Philpott’s performance did you like?

    The most important thing about a narrator for me is that they make it easier, not harder, to follow the storyline. Philpott does this.
