The fifth book of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, Midnight Tides continues what has so far been an excellent epic fantasy series with no sight of slowing down. I love that I’m five books in and the typical “wow, this is decelerating and becoming incoherent and aimless” thing just hasn’t happened. At all. I also love that this book, while featuring some earlier characters, was filled with almost entirely new ones. And, while I’ve found that state of things irritating in the past, I loved it.
Also, this book was hilarious. Far and away the most funny of the series yet.
If you like epic fantasy and you’re not reading this, you’re wrong.
