Book Recommendation: Dancer’s Lament by Ian C. Esslemont

Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 9.20.36 AMIan C. Esslemont has been one of my favourite authors since his debut novel Night of Knives and remains so with Dancer’s Lament. I could not put it down. In fact I dedicated an entire Monday (which I never do as I should have been writing and blogging) to the reading of this book. I do not regret it.

Two pages in and I was laughing. Ian C. Esslemont perfectly captures the characters we first met in the works of Steven Erikson. Dancer’s Lament is a thrill ride packed with humour and hard won lessons. It is everything fans of the Malazan Empire have come to love. I recommend it to both long time readers of the series as well as to new ones, as it stands alone as the first book in a trilogy.

Once you get started with this series you wish it never stops.
