Summary (From the publisher):

The ravaged continent of Genabackis has given birth to a terrifying new empire: the Pannion Domin. Like a tide of corrupted blood, it seethes across the land, devouring all who fail to heed the word of it's elusive prophet, the Pannion Seer. In it's path stands an uneasy alliance: Dujek Onearm's Host and Whiskeyjack's veteran Bridgeburners - both now outlawed by the Empress - alonside their enemies of old, including the grim forces of Warlord Caladan Brood, Anomander Rake, Son of Darkness, and his Tiste Andii, and the Rhivi people of the Plains. Outnumbered by the Seer's army of zealots and struggling to put aside their differences, it is vital they get word to potential allies, including an unknown mercenary brotherhood, the Grey Swords, who have been contracted to defend the city of Capustan against the fanatic hordes.

But more ancient clans too are gathering. In answer to some primal summons the massed ranks of the undead Tīlan Imass have risen. For it would appear something altogether darker and more malign threatens the very substance of this world. The Warrens are poisoned, and rumours abound of the Crippled God, now unchained and intent on a terrible revenge...

Marking the return of many key characters from Gardens of the Moon and introducing a host of remarkable new players, Memories of Ice is the momentous new chapter in Steven Erikson's magnificent epic fantasy and a triumph of storytelling.

Blurbs:
  • "A truly astonishing novel, a triumph of the storytellerís art . . . If you consider yourself to be a fan of the very highest quality fantasy fiction, then hereís what you have to do. Read the first two volumes if you havenít done so already, then read this one. Then tell me that Steven Erikson isnít one of the very best damn fantasy writers youíve ever read." Alien online
  • "If any work is truly deserving of the accolade epic, it is the writing of Steven Erikson. Vast in scope and imagination, spanning continents and cultures as diverse and multi-faceted as any to be found in fantasy, Erikson readily towers over every author writing military fantasy today . . . Homeric in scope and vision, Erikson interweaves stories and characters upon a grand stage that not only captures but competes for the readerís attention . . . But what really sets the authorís writing apart, aside from his rich and vivid use of language and description, his unparalleled management of action and gripping combat, his compassion towards hip characters, or the sheer scale of his imagination and mythic vision, are the secondary and thematic elements running beneath . . . themes of loss and redemption, religion and the sacrifice of love, identity, heroism and what it means to be human ... Erikson has infused new life into one of the oldest traditions of fiction . . . Along with Gardens of the Moon and Deadhouse Gates, Memories of Ice offers all the rewards the word epic so often conjures and fails to deliver. Read and expect to be overpowered, not only by a story that never fails to thrill and entertain, but by a saga that lives up to its name, both intellectually and in its dramatic, visually rich and lavish storytelling."
