    Path to Ascendency trilogy, a Malazan prequel by Ian Esslemont Will Contain Spoilers.

    Ian C Esslemont; Path to Ascendancy

    On book two and loving this series. From Kellanved and Dancer's first meeting, the story of their rise to power. A few familiar faces in the first book and even more in the second. I hadn't realised how much I missed the Malaz universe.

I do have a few critiques though: 1) I miss erikson's humour. 2)The disruption that basically ended the battle between the Crimson Guard and the Malazans...
