‘The courtyard was suddenly filled with shadows, a strange crackling sound ripping through the air—
And a fifth figure was among the four Edur sorcerers now, grey-clad, gloved, face hidden in a rough hood. In its hands, a rope, that seemed to writhe with a life of its own. Cutter saw it snap out to strike a sorcerer in one eye, and when the rope whipped back out, a stream of blood and minced brains followed. The sorcerer’s magic winked out and the Edur toppled.
The rope was too fast to follow, as its wielder moved among the three remaining mages, but in its twisting wake a head tumbled from shoulders, intestines spilled out from a gaping rip, and whatever felled the last sorcerer happened in a blur that left no obvious result, except that the Edur was dead before he hit the ground.’

Recimo da je Malazan saga serijal epske fantastike novije generacije (nakon ere Howard-a, Tolkien-a, Jordan-a i ostalih iz te stare škole), i da se u potpunosti razlikuje od svega što sam do sada pročitao. Erikson je jednostavno postavio neke nove standarde u žanru, i mislim da će još dugo ostati nenadmašan.
Ako si u prilici da pročitaš seriju, iskreno ti je preporučujem.
