    The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting, and bloody confrontations with ancient and implacable sorcerers. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen’s rule remains absolute, enforced by her dreaded Claw assassins. For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, their lone surviving mage, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities, yet holds out.

    Adnan says: "An engrossing yet demanding high epic"
    "Too many characters, too little depth"

    Any additional comments?

    The plot was well done, drawing all the lines together in a satisfactory conclusion. Too many times, however, the author would move on to another character and I'd have to try to remember who it is, their position in the plot, and any emotional investment I have for them. Often as not, there wasn't any of the last. None of the characters felt explored as deeply as would have been enough to keep my interest.

    If you can keep multiple story lines together without effort and like plot driven book, you'll probably like this. If you like a focused work that highlights a character through their choices and mistakes, you'll probably want to move on.

    Pressed into service when World War II breaks out in the Pacific, the USS Walker---a Great-War vintage "four-stacker" destroyer---finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover---and emerges somewhere else.

    AudioAddict says: "The cover is a little misleading"
    "Decent escapist fun!"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    A good distraction, but not earth shattering literature. The characters were a little two dimensional, interpersonal and logistical problems a little too easily resolved.
