"Reaper's Gale"

This is book 7 of the "Malazan Book of the Fallen". Book 6, "The Bonehunters", was okay, but definitely the weakest in the series so far. "Gale" winds up the plotline begun in "Midnight Tides", but I'm sure we haven't seen the last of Tehol Beddict, Bugg and their friends.

There are a lot of character deaths in this one, though. Unlike George RR Martin, who sort of kills his characters pointlessly, these are definitely meaningful, and they hurt. On the minus side, Erikson can't write romantic love to save his life; all such relationships really seem to spring out of nowhere.

I really like this series a lot, and after the next 3 books there are still at least three more in this universe.
