Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Reaper's Gale: The Malazan Book of the Fallen 7 by Steven Erikson, read by Michael Page. 

All is not well in the Letherii Empire. Rhulad Sengar, the Emperor of a Thousand Deaths, spirals into madness, surrounded by sycophants and agents of his Machiavellian chancellor, while the Letherii secret police conduct a campaign of terror against its own people. The Errant, once a farseeing god, is suddenly blind to the future. Conspiracies seethe throughout the palace, as the empire - driven by the corrupt and self-interested - edges ever closer to all-out war with the neighbouring kingdoms. And the great Edur fleet - its warriors selected from countless peoples - draws ever closer. Amongst them are Karsa Orlong and Icarium Lifestealer - each destined to cross blades with the Emperor himself. That yet more blood is to be spilled is inevitable....

Against this backdrop, a band of fugitives seek a way out of the empire, but one of them, Fear Sengar, must find the soul of Scabandari Bloodeye. It is his hope that it might help halt the Tiste Edur and so save his brother, the Emperor. Yet travelling with them is Scabandari's most ancient foe: Silchas Ruin, brother of Anomander Rake. And his motives are anything but certain - for the wounds he carries on his back, made by the blades of Scabandari, are still fresh. Fate decrees that there is to be a reckoning, for such bloodshed cannot go unanswered - and it will be a reckoning on an unimaginable scale....

A brutal, harrowing novel of war, intrigue and dark, uncontrollable magic, this is epic fantasy at its most imaginative, storytelling at its most thrilling.

Fantastic

Michael Page is a master of his craft. Perfectly performing the scruffy deadpan humour of the malazan soldier to the buried rage of a god.

Keep a list with names at hand to follow who is who though. It sure gets confusing at times. Epic tale it is nonetheless.

The preformer was excellent and the book is great. A little hard put down though.

What a great MBotF this is.

One of my favourites of the series so far, and I've completely loved nearly them all. The story is terrific - the character arcs continue in ways you don't see coming - the gory battles are, as always, right on point.

Better than previous ones

This was a good listen, yes you have some confusion of similar sounding names but the context usually clarifies it for you. Fan favourites are still making appearances and you have what feels like the start of the culmination from the previous books, plot lines coming together and as ever some emotional moments.

I would thoroughly recommend this book, up there with the quality of the first book

Best Malazan Book Yet

I thoroughly enjoyed this one, for a change the ending didn't feel rushed unlike most of the series, it has all your favourite characters, one good battle scene and plenty of humour.
