Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Omg, make it stop."

    I should have listened to the negative reviews. They warned me that the book was incredibly confusing and self-indulgent, and they were right. After listening to several huge volumes of this series, I still don't know what is happening. The author does a truly horrible job of making events clear. He is a good with words, but bad at storytelling. I give up on this series.

    "Best in series"

    This book is the best in the Mazalan series, in my opinion. I've read them all but this is the only one I've listened too/read three times. Awesome characters, superb story telling.

    "what game of thrones could be..."

    ...if it weren't violence porno. I don't get the sense from reading his blog that Steven Erickson likes being compared to other authors, so sorry for that click bait summary. The Malazan series is phenomenal and Memories of Ice is where I got hooked and couldn't put it down.

    "Best of the first 3"

    the first two books were well-written epic tales. Book 3 keeps all that was good in the first two,, and adds better pacing, more twists and turns, more epic battles, and the characters finally take their interactions to the next level. If you like the first two books, I would think you would love this one. even if you thought the first two were a little slow or rambled, I believe you will find this book excellent.

    Story
    "Ok, now I understand...three books in"

    Steven Erikson really comes in to his own in this book. Where the first one was information overload of a very alien world and felt like stepping into the warren of chaos, the third book in the series weaves a more cohesive and understandable plot with a more conventional narrative structure. One of my criticisms of the previous two books is the excessive amount of climaxes; they leave the reader with little grounding in how epic or meaningful they really are. Memories of Ice builds to a single finale that is phenomenal. While there is tragedy in this book, it is not as heart wrenching (or torturous) as the second and Erikson does a great job providing comic relief throughout. I found myself laughing aloud on multiple occasions. The character development is top notch with several hundred thousand years of it on some of the characters. There is thoughtful dialogue in this book, as in the second. The characters give meaningful reflections on their experiences (highly quotable stuff here). I want to buy the hard copies of the second and third (I have the first) just to use them as a reference to all the great quotes on their pages. I didn't mind how long it was. There's too much good stuff in it. As my title says, it took a few long books to really understand what happened in the first. This is more a criticism of the first than this one. I'm going to keep on with this series. Ralph Lister does a fantastic job with the reading. He has a large range of character voices that is needed with such a large cast of characters. It certainly helped with the comprehension of what was happening. One criticism I have of his telling is that he doesn't pause between different parts of the story. I had to rewind often because the transition to talking about events half a world a way was too smooth.

    "Amazing book!"

    I absolutely love this series. 5 stars for Mr. Erickson! After book 2's slow start I was worried "Memories of ice" would follow suit, but This book is riveting right from the beginning and never eases up. I give Lister 4 stars. Lister is an amazing narrator, he did such an amazing job in the previous two books of the series. He has the ability to perform numerous voices, but I found (unlike in other books) there were multiple times in which the distinguished voice he set for certain characters would swap with the other character's in dialogue, which made some dialogue slightly confusing--I had to rewind on a couple occasions. What makes Erickson' books so amazing is how much depth all of his characters have. My only wish is that Audible enlists multiple narrators for these books, one male and one female, to help emphasize some of that depth.

    "Spectacular"

    There is no competition. Erikson is in a class of his own, and Lister brings his full cast to life.
