    [PDF/EBOOK] (Kellanved's Reach) BY Ian C. Esslemont Review Kellanved's Reach 25 stars? Weak What a letdown At least 50% or of the book is about the origin stories of Crimson Guard characters that I care nothing about The parts with Kellenved and Dancer were great and I enjoyed those but the rest was just weak And this isn't really a spoiler I don't think but Dancer and Kellenved don't ascend by the end of the book I feel a bit cheated

Review Kellanved's Reach

Kellanved's Reach Free read ß 2 Ian C. Esslemont ¹ 2 Free read The incessant war between the bickering city states of uon Tali rages So engrossed are the warring lords and princes in their own petty feuds that few notice that an upstart mage from Dal Hon has gained control of the southern seas But some powers are alarmedAnd in the meantime as Purge and Tali indulge in what seems like a their never ending game of war a mercenary caught up in the fight between the two states suddenly refuses to play along and causes all sorts of chaos Simultaneously a pair of escapees fr. Right I m going to start with some opinions they re intrinsically linked and maybe slightly controversial but that s ok because I m up for an argument or two So don t read these books before Erikson s Malazan Book of the Fallen and if you don t have a passion for that series and the big name characters in it that borders on an unhealthy obsession don t bother with them at all Every part of what makes these preuels worth reading is the chance to experience what comes before seeing where characters come from how they meet the way they get their namesnicknames what they re like before or as they become legend There s a thrill in reading hints about who someone is and guessing or knowing the answer before it s given There s trepidation in registering the fractures that are going to crack wide enough to shatter worlds shake the gods swallow armies and end lives on an uncountable scale There are meaningful layered conversations that can only be understood in reference to what comes afterwards and there are silly jokes that work in the same way The seeds of destruction are laid out before the reader here and we know they end For fans it s hard to resist As for the plot that surrounds it all it s light and often fun but limited in what it achieves It s easy enough that it feels like it should be an entry point to a series which some might see as overly complicated or unapproachable HOWEVER it is not please see above for details The hill I m going to die on start with Gardens of the Moon or just read something else you enjoyEven though this is still described everywhere as far as I can see as a trilogy Kellanved s Reach doesn t feel like the end of anything Whether that means books in the Path to Ascendancy or the arbitrary creation of another series title to cover what comes next who knows but there s still so much ground to cover There was certainly a hell of a lot of time spent on introducing new characters if there s not going to be from them soon It was problematic for this instalment in any case taking away the focus from Kellanved and Dancer They are the glue that held together Dancer s Lament and Deadhouse Landing after all it is predominantly their path to Ascendancy that we re supposed to be following They fade in and out of the picture in this book see what I did with a bucket load of new characters taking their place Obviously many of those were cracking additions but honestly the structure couldn t take the weight And this is the essential problem with Esslemont s writing and the relative shortness of his books neither allow for the necessary depth Everything just that bit too clunky and repetitive I m not sure how many times we re reminded that Dancer makes sure to take his trusty length of ropeyes we get it Once is enough It s part of a general lack of consistency some things said again and again others rushed through The ending seemed like it was going to be a proper Malazan style climax thenwasn t So not only is there not enough time to do each of the storylines properly the time spent on each isn t always utilised that well This is particularly evident in the later part of this instalment jumping from one thing to the next and barely managing to get the highlights down There s no emotion here save that we carry with us and it s kinda shoddy for the author to rely on that All this sounds like I didn t much enjoy the book which I did but it worries me that things are already starting to slide The first two books were unabashed fun this one tries to do too much with too little and doesn t hit the mark I hope whatever comes next picks that energy back up because otherwise the impact of all the hugely important stuff just around the corner is going to be non existent It s genuinely going to be sadder to read it like that than it it would be to not have it at all Here s hoping thenARC via Netgalley

Kellanved's Reach Free read ß 2 Ian C. Esslemont ¹ 2 Free read Om Castle Gris make their way across this ravaged landscape of flame and butchery Their intention to seek out the legendary Crimson Guard And then there's Kellanved who could not care less about any of this petty politicking or strategy or war Something other and altogether mysterious has caught his attention and he together with a reluctant and decidedly sceptical Dancer traverse continents and journey through the Realms in pursuit But this ancient mystery that has so captivated Kellanved is neither esoter. Book 1 5Book 2 5Book 3 375Just when I thought ICE had it all worked outThe problem is you have dozens of legendary characters and you try to wrap things up in a 350 page book If I could describe this book in one word it would be smattering A smattering of Heboric a smattering of Blues Skinner Dassem Shimmer Surly Urko Catheron TCG Silk Greymane Dujek Whiskeyjack ToolWTF These are characters who could have their own books I understand he wanted this as a compliment to Empire and to set up those events but he needed to think BotF as well If the first book was Dancer s and the second was an ensemble of the main old guard this was just spread too thinly It was still enjoyable because any Malazan will be but some of the events and explanations were almost YA in feel I did love the throne of Telann scene the meeting of the Moranth and TCG part

Kellanved's Reach Free read ß 2 Ian C. Esslemont ¹ 2 Free read Ic nor ephemeral No it is of an altogether darker and dangerous hue It involves the Elder races themselves and specifically certainly alarmingly the semi mythic and universally dreaded Army of Dust and BoneSurely no one in their right mind would be so foolish as to embark on a journey from which none have returned Well no one except Kellanved that is Returning to the turbulent early history of what would become the Malazan Empire here is the third awesome chapter in Ian C Esslemont's new epic fantasy seuenc. 25 starsHm This was a weird one I feel like I m one of the few Malazan fans who feel a bit meh about the Path to Ascendancy seriesMy criticism of this might seem contradictory This book follows a lot of different characters and there were uite a few I did not really care about and whose storylines I found boringThe thing is the book felt too short to me Huh she found it too short but boring I feel like the characters and storylines did not have enough room to develop The book often felt rushed and key elements happened way too uickly for my liking This made it hard to really connect to and care for the characters This book could have easily been twice as longAlso I feel like this book was targeted at readers who have read both MBotF and the Malazan Empire series I have not read the latter and I buddy read this with some of the Malazan enthusiasts at Fantasy Buddy Reads They picked up a lot of things I did not and I think this diminished my reading enjoymentAs for the writing I can t say that Esslemont s writing is bad in this one but there is something about it that does not work for me I can t put my finger on it thoughThere were some great moments and scenes I really enjoyed where I felt the fascination for this world but unfortunately those were muddied by a lot of rushed scenes I wish the book had focused on those storylines I enjoyed and had spent time developing themThe rest of the seriesDancer s Lament 25 starsDeadhouse Landing 3 5 4 stars
