    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.....

    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to like this book and the one before it so much. It has a great story-concept, as rich and deep as Song of Ice and Fire any day. Sadly though I find that this book takes more effort than I can sustainably exert to follow its twists and turns. Am I falling into dementia? Perhaps. Thankfully though I can enjoy the likes of Sanderson, Rothfuss and Martin. I've tried to determine the problem and I think it comes down to attention as I've said. I like to listen to books while driving and hiking, exerting continuous partial attention and still enjoying the experience. Sadly this series of books is opaque to me.
