What the movie should have been all along. I started the book and couldn't put it down. Matthew Stover filled in the answers that the movie left without remedy. this is a "must read" for every Star Wars fan!

In Darujhistan, the city of blue blue fire, it is said that Love and Death shall arrive dancing. It is summer, and the heat is oppressive, but for the small, rotund man in the faded red waistcoat discomfiture is not just because of the sun. All is not well. Dire portents plague his nights and haunt the city streets like fiends of shadow. Assassins skulk in alleyways, but the quarry has turned, and the hunters become the hunted. Hidden hands pluck the strings of tyranny like a fell chorus.

Amongst those with power, nuance is the sign of mastery. This novel peels back the quivering epidermis of deity to reveal that the spirit of hope is humanity itself. This book is the best of the Malazan series and it stands amongst a paltry few as a spire in the crown of Epic Fantasy.
