    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"
    "Finally it is here."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend "Gardens of the Moon" to anyone who enjoys epic fantasy. This book is fast paced, with great characters. Just as complicated as George R.R. Martin, and Robert Jordan, but with a much faster pacing. The Magic is unique, and you can tell that Steven Erikson was a professor of anthropology.

    This is Grade A fantasy at its best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The pacing of the story, it covers a lot of ground. I also have love for the Bridgeburners.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Quickben, and Kalem get ambushed by Anomander and company on the rooftops.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Certain characters made me laugh, but it is a serious book.


    Any additional comments?

    Please get the other 9 books of the main series on Audible asap!! ohh... and all the novellas of the Malazan world by Steven Erikson, and the ones by Ian C. Esslemont
