Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Bonehunters: The Malazan Book of the Fallen 6 by Steven Erikson, read by Michael Page. 

The Seven Cities Rebellion has been crushed. Sha'ik is dead. One last rebel force remains, holed up in the city of Y'Ghatan and under the fanatical command of Leoman of the Flails. The prospect of laying siege to this ancient fortress makes the battle-weary Malaz 14th Army uneasy. For it was here that the Empire's greatest champion, Dassem Ultor, was slain and a tide of Malazan blood spilled. A place of foreboding, its smell is of death. But elsewhere, agents of a far greater conflict have made their opening moves. 

The Crippled God has been granted a place in the pantheon, a schism threatens and sides must be chosen. Whatever each god decides, the ground rules have changed, irrevocably, terrifyingly, and the first blood spilled will be in the mortal world. A world in which a host of characters, familiar and new, including Heboric Ghost Hands, the possessed Apsalar, Cutter, once a thief now a killer, the warrior Karsa Orlong and the two ancient wanderers Icarium and Mappo, each searching for such a fate as they might fashion with their own hands, guided by their own will. 

If only the gods would leave them alone. But now that knives have been unsheathed, the gods are disinclined to be kind. There shall be war, war in the heavens. And the prize? Nothing less than existence itself...

Here is the stunning new chapter in Steven Erikson's magnificent Malazan Book of the Fallen - hailed as an epic of the imagination and acknowledged as a fantasy classic in the making.

More of what you love from Malazan BotF

Every Malazan book is long and sometimes you catch yourself thinking, 'I have no idea what is going on'. This in no way detracts from a superb performance or a brilliant story. What is primarily military fantasy, weaves in various other elements that are equally as gripping, politics, magic, exploration, mystery, philosophy. The love stories are a bit weak.

2nd sadest moment in malazab

I liked it, suffers somewhat from the usual incomprehensable yet pivotal fight at the end which you end up having to listen to ten times and a few characters who I've done so little in the books that I have no idea who they are but still a great book... ? it's as good any Elric story mine, but the author proves he can do short stories too in the kerbello and broach (?) stories (the healthy dead is great!)

Great read.

If you are this far in i need not explain the excellence.
needless to say another classic episode of the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
