On the Letherii continent the exiled Malazan army commanded by Adjunct Tavore begins its march into the eastern Wastelands, to fight for an unknown cause against an enemy it has never seen. The fate awaiting the Bonehunters is one no soldier can prepare for, and one no mortal soul can withstand - the foe is uncertainty and the only weapon worth wielding is stubborn courage. In war everyone loses, and this brutal truth can be found in the eyes of every soldier in every world. Destinies are never simple. Truths are neither clear nor sharp. The Tales of the Malazan Book of the Fallen are drawing to a close in a distant place, beneath indifferent skies, as the last great army of the Malazan Empire seeks a final battle in the name of redemption. Final questions remain to be answered: can one's deeds be heroic when no one is there to see it? Can that which is unwitnessed forever change the world? The answers await the Bonehunters, beyond the Wastelands...show more

Back cover copy

In war everyone loses. This brutal truth can be seen in the eyes of every soldier in every world. On Letherii, the exiled Malazan army prepares to march into the eastern Wastelands to fight for an unknown cause against an enemy it has never seen. The fate that lies in wait for the Bonehunters is one no soldier can prepare for - and one no mortal soul can withstand. Their foe is uncertainty and stubborn courage the only weapon worth wielding. They are resolved to make a defiant and heroic last stand in the name of redemption but can deeds be heroic when there is no one to witness them? And can that which is not witnessed change the world? Destinies are rarely simple, truths never clear. The only certainty is that time is on no-one's side - for the Deck of Dragons has been read, unleashing a power that none can comprehend. And so, in a faraway land and beneath indifferent skies, the penultimate chapter in the awesome Malazan Book of the Fallen begins. . .show more
