    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.....

    Story
    If you could sum up Deadhouse Gates in three words, what would they be?

    No mercy, ever.


    What did you like best about this story?

    These characters, their struggles, so heart wrenching... Oh Coltaine, oh Duiker.. Mappo. I made a mistake by reading Memories of Ice and listening to Deadhouse Gates at the same time, since they took place at the same time... so without spoiling anything, someone's fate was already known ...but it didn't matter; I was held by the narrative entirely.


    What does Ralph Lister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This guy is fucking amazing. There is only so much someone can do with dozens and dozens of characters to voice and keep things distinct and he did that and more. I'm tempted to listen backwards from this book to the beginning of the saga if Lister is the guy behind the voice on them.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    So many moving moments. But Duiker saving the toddler outside the gates of Aren and his final scene of the book are a toss up.


    Any additional comments?

    Mind blown, I had forgotten how good an audiobook could be. Thank you Erickson, Lister and Audible.
