The return of the mercenary company, the Crimson Guard, could not have come at a worse time for a Malazan Empire exhausted by warfare and weakened by betrayals and rivalries. Indeed, there are those who wonder whether the Empress Laseen might not be losing her grip on power as she faces increasing unrest as conquered kingdoms and principalities sense freedom once more.

as good if not better than the Best of Erickson's work. I had my doubts about another writer building in this world but those doubts have been dismantled with the skill of Dassem himself.
