Memories of Ice is the third book of the Malazan Book of the Fallen. It’s good. I didn’t find its battles as drawn out and tedious as the tale of Coltaine in the second book. It didn’t seem to be hell-bent on the themes of submission and abuse, either, which was a bonus. It did a lot to enhance the texture and back-story of the majority of the characters we met in the first book, while also doing a good job of further confusing and complicating the systems sketched out in the first two books. I finished it wanting more and feeling that I understood both more and less at the same time. Will keep reading this series, for sure, as should you, if you like epic fantasy. 9/10.
