Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Toll the Hounds: The Malazan Book of the Fallen 8 by Steven Erikson, read by Michael Page. 

In Darujhistan, the saying goes that Love and Death shall arrive together, dancing....

It is summer, and the heat is oppressive, yet the discomfiture of the small rotund man in the faded red waistcoat is not entirely due to the sun. Dire portents plague his nights and haunt the city's streets like fiends of shadow. 

Assassins skulk in alleyways, but it seems the hunters have become the hunted. Hidden hands pluck the strings of tyranny like a fell chorus. Strangers have arrived, and while the bards sing their tragic tales, somewhere in the distance can be heard the baying of hounds. All is palpably not well. And in Black Coral, too, ruled over by Anomander Rake, Son of Darkness, something is afoot - memories of ancient crimes surface, clamouring for revenge, so it would seem that Love and Death are indeed about to make their entrance....

This is epic fantasy at its most imaginative, storytelling at its most exciting.

Erikson does it again.

While some books in this series are more moving than others, Erikson never fails to engage the reader on every page. All the masochistic sorrow you know and love is here for your listening pleasure.

One of the better ones in the series

There have been ups and downs across this series, some books being more of a wade rather than an keen interest to know what happens next. This however is not one of those. You want to know what is going to happen, who is going to do what, trying to guess intrigue where you can and also trying not to get to attached to characters (especially since whiskeyjack). The brings together many characters that had previously gone on their own journeys and has you rooting for all of them.

I love Michael page as a narrator, having chosen books just because he narrates
