    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.

    More fecund than any book of its kind. No other writer has a menagerie of fleshed out characters like Erikson.

    In just a few short years, Richard K. Morgan has vaulted to the pinnacle of the science fiction world. Now he turns his iconoclastic talents to epic fantasy, crafting a darkly violent, tautly plotted adventure sure to thrill old fans and captivate new readers.

    "Great book, same as Takeshi novels but fantasy"
    Overall

    It's amazing to me that the people who like other works by Morgan don't like this one because of the sexual content. Most of his work has explicit sexual content! This just happens to be the first that portrays flesh touching flesh were both the subjects involved have the same plumbing, his other works are just as sexually explicit. It's also amazing to me that such intricate and complicated subject matter can be liked or disliked purely on the basis of what shape the sexual subjects body parts have. I wonder how readers would have felt if one of Morgan's virtual reality sex scenes from his Takeshi novels were done with two men entering the virtual reality construct but one of them taking on the aspect of a woman and having hetero style sex with the other man, would that still be gay sex? Would people still be offended? It's a shame such a great book, which "The Steel Remains" is, should be criticized with such nonsense. If you like Morgan's other books, almost all of which have some explicit sexual content, you will like this one too, unless of course you are bigoted towards homosexuals.
