Savaged by the K'Chain Nah'Ruk,
the Bonehunters march for Kolanse, where waits an unknown fate.
Tormented by questions, the army totters on the edge of mutiny, but
Adjunct Tavore will not relent. One final act remains, if it is in her
power, if she can hold her army together, if the shaky allegiances she
has forged can survive all that is to come. A woman with no gifts of
magic, deemed plain, unprepossessing, displaying nothing to instill
loyalty or confidence, Tavore Paran of House Paran means to challenge
the gods -- if her own troops don't kill her first. Awaiting Tavore and
her allies are the Forkrul Assail, the final arbiters of humanity.
Drawing upon an alien power terrible in its magnitude, they seek to
cleanse the world, to annihilate every human, every civilization, in
order to begin anew. They welcome the coming conflagration of slaughter,
for it shall be of their own devising, and it pleases them to know
that, in the midst of the enemies gathering against them, there shall be
betrayal. In the realm of Kurald Galain, home to the long lost city of
Kharkanas, a mass of refugees stand upon the First Shore. Commanded by
Yedan Derryg, the Watch, they await the breaching of Lightfall, and the
coming of the Tiste Liosan. This is a war they cannot win, and they will
die in the name of an empty city and a queen with no subjects.
Elsewhere, the three Elder Gods, Kilmandaros, Errastas and Sechul Lath,
work to shatter the chains binding Korabas, the Otataral Dragon, and
release her from her eternal prison. Once freed, she will be a force of
utter devastation, and against her no mortal can stand. At the Gates of
Starvald Demelain, the Azath House sealing the portal is dying. Soon
will come the Eleint, and once more, there will be dragons in the world.
And so, in a far away land and beneath indifferent skies, the final
cataclysmic chapter in the extraordinary 'Malazan Book of the Fallen'
begins. "From the Trade Paperback edition."
