Dancer s Lament first book in Path to Ascendancy series is not a preuel It s the first book of a new series set in the early history of the Malazan Empire Distinction very important to indicate less we woke Ian s ireBut in all seriousness it is my hope that when finished people in future will start Malazan Book of the Fallen series from this book instead of Gardens of the Moon written by Steven Erikson While this book stands on its own without any need of your prior knowledge to be read it will hopefully invoke both interest to explore this world further and also give much needed and endlessly complained about introduction to abrupt start of Steven Erikson s Gardens of the Moon Less anyone ever again utters those heretic words such as I don t understand or I m lost and this is hard etcBut again seriously even after three reads of the main series while reading this book I found myself surprised with my lack of understanding of certain things and events both of which this book explained and clarified to me and prepared me for next one This is my first read of Ian s book and I honestly didn t know what to expect It s no secret that I hold dear and very close to my heart Malazan Book of the Fallen series and consider it as a peak of epic fantasy and best it has produced in history of the genre And that s the uite unfair reason why avoided Ian s previous books in which story is parallel and overlaps that of main series For some twisted reason I feared my opinion and enjoyment would be sullied if it happens that Ian fails to deliver But now that I m reading chronologically everything that was written about this world I wanted to embrace every single thing in it and enjoy journey with everything it has to offerAfter finishing this book I think I m even excited about this journey if that was possibleDancer s Lament is different than main series and Kharkanas preuels First and foremost in its approach Focus of this book is to tell personal story of very few POV characters just three actually where conseuences of their actions are almost immediate and glaringly obvious to reader It s also written without that romantic philosophical prose which was shockingly apparent especially after archaic prose in Kharkanas there is constant feeling of progress without characters and yours pondering throughout It s less metaphoricalWhich doesn t mean it lacks depth It s simply a matter of angle of approach to this world Story and Characters Story is set in inland city Li Heng of Central Malazan Empire s continent uon Tali The city itself is under the rule of powerful sorceress Shalamant known as The Protectress and her coterie of five magesTogether they give resistance to the siege of Li Heng under ambitious king of Itko Kan Chulalorn and constant infiltration of the city with his assassins Nightblades as well as whip sword wielding bodyguards sent on a diplomatic mission In the city is also young Dorin trained assassin trying to work his way up in criminal underground and gain reputation despite his young appearance and there is also Wu seemingly a charlatan or very incompetent mage trying to gain access to secrets of a certain misplaced and forgotten Warren Realm of magic Dorin s relationship with Wu is as funny and precious as that of Cotillion s with Shadowthrone That s all I m going to say about thatWe follow three POV characters and each separately provides us with glimpses of different parts of the storyWith already mentioned Dorin we see how Li Heng s simple citizens cope with siege as well as exploration of magic realm with his uite unfortunate crossings with Wu We get to experience battles those sieges inevitably bring through the eyes of mage Silk as well as other side s perspective of the conflict with whip sword Kanese girl Iko All of them in their own experiences of the world around them get to grow shape and change their views first and foremost of themselves then of the people and in the end of the world itselfBeside them one of the most interesting characters was definitely The Protectress herself At first glance she seems like another bland and overpowered character but when she sees certain elder Warren resurfacing with realization what that means and which Son might be summoned to inspect this occurrence you would think she is paralyzed with fear And if you are familiar with history of the world you ll notice it s not just fear that makes her eyesight fall but deep shame and regrets of injustice long time ago committedYou ll find yourself empathetic to her characterAs for other

CHARACTERS ¼ Dancer's Lament Taking Malazan fans back to that troubled continent's turbulent early history The opening chapter in Ian C Esslemont's epic new fantasy seuence the Path to Ascendancy trilogyFor ages warfare has crippled the continent as minor city states baronies and principalities fought in an endless round of hostilities Only the alliance of the rival Tali and uon cities could field the resources to mount a hegemony from coast to coast and thus become known as uon TaliIt is a generation since the collapse of this dynasty and regional powers are onc. Dancer s Lament is the first of Ian C Esslemont s Malazan novels that I have read and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience It is the first installment of the Path to Ascendancy trilogy The book is linear that the previous series entrants that I have read written by Steven Erikson It is story driven and less about the world building however it still contains a large cast of dramatis personae and the book is complemented by some amazing and very memorable set piecesThe action follows the stories and point of views of three characters Dorin Rav Dancer enough said Iko a female sword dancerguard and Silk a vain mage and how they are affected by a war that takes place at Li Heng and also the inner politics of the city s underworld The point of view I found the most intriguing was of course Dancer s Mainly to see the foundation of his relationship with a certain shadowy mage known as Wu in this story but you know who this person is and about Dancer s past and training Wu and Dorin s banter right from the start is great At some points they seem like a married couple bickering however you see the underlining current of respect being built between them throughout the novel In some books you can dislike certain POV perspectives and almost speed read those parts I didn t have this problem with any of these characters In fact knowing that these other characters are involved in later ICE books other readers may find extra layers of awesome in their sections that I couldn t see I don t want to say too much about the plot I do not want to reveal anything to my unfortunate American cousins where this hasn t been released yet What I will say though is a lot of the characters are very cool and likable Ullara a bird loving stable girl Shalmanat the protectress of the Li Heng and even the notorious feared beastly creature that haunts the radius of the city One point I have to say is awesome is when we realise where the name Dancer originated fromSome people have posted gripes with the way that Ian writes and his skill not being anywhere near that of Steven Erikson I had no problem with his pace descriptive nature the way he presented the world s ideology history magic and it was a story that I devoured Maybe his writing has improved but I am looking forward to reading other books of his Return of the Crimson Guard is high on my priorities to read now I am intrigued also to see how some of the characters introduced to me here who aren t as freuent in Erikson s novel s such as the Crimson Guard behave and develop in ICE s other books Would this be a good entry point for the whole Malazan world for a new reader Perhaps Due to the limited amount of POV s and the many stunning events make this a good stand alone read Maybe I take it for granted though as I am aware of the history magical systems etc that would be lost confusing on a new reader and they may be out of their depth I d recommend going the normal route with Erikson first but if you like the sound of this review and you haven t read Malazan by all means take a gamble and let me know what you think I can t wait for the next installment Thank you Ian Peace xwwwyouandibookswordpresscom
