The ravaged continent of Genabackis has given birth to a terrifying new empire: the Pannion Domin. Like a tide of corrupted blood, it seethes across the land, devouring all. In its path stands an uneasy alliance: Onearm’s army and Whiskeyjack’s Bridgeburners alongside their enemies of old - the forces of the Warlord Caladan Brood, Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii mages, and the Rhivi people of the plains. But ancient undead clans are also gathering; the T’lan Imass have risen. For it would seem something altogether darker and more malign threatens this world. Rumors abound that the Crippled God is now unchained and intent on a terrible revenge. Marking the return of many characters from Gardens of the Moon and introducing a host of remarkable new players, Memories of Ice is both a momentous new chapter in Steven Erikson’s magnificent epic fantasy and a triumph of storytelling.

After making it through Deadhouse Gates, and that gut wrenching ending of the Chain of Dogs, Erickson kicks me in the feels yet again with this one. Well done, off to House of Chains!
This...the apex of storytelling and weaving of plots. Worth every minute. I've cried. I've laughed. I've cheer. I've roared. I've done all these things in response to this epic tale.
I am baffled that one human could create such a monstrously huge and complex work. I am delightfully lost within it... but so intrigued that I am determined to find my way. The narration is beyond professional, an absolute talent.... I wait for certain characters simply for the sound of them. All other epic fantasy is merely the base for this mountain.
While "Deadhouse gate" was 100% pure misery, "Memories of Ice" was so much more balanced. Still horrific and extremely brutal at times, but also some much needed relief from the bloodshed in the form of love, heartbreak, friendship, compassion and redemption. Well worth the effort.
Great story that is heightened by Ralph Lister's amazing awesomeness. You forget that you are listening to one dude. First rate.
