Fall of Light is the long-awaited sequel to the first book in The Kharkanas trilogy (which is a prequel to the Malazan Book of the Fallen series) by Steven Erikson. I couldn’t wait to read this book after devouring Forge of Darkness.
Civil war is now ravaging through Kurald Galain, and the Tiste are thrown into chaos, forced to choose sides in a war no one wants – or to reject both sides altogether. The three Purake brothers upon whom shoulders rest the duty of protecting Mother Dark and everyone under her rule are split. Anomander is looking for his grief-stricken and estranged brother Andarist, while Silchas Ruin is forced to rule in Anomander’s stead. And Urusander’s army is moving towards Kharkanas, to mete out what they believe is justice.
