Jardins da lua

Editora Arqueiro

Desde pequeno, Ganoes Paran decidiu trocar os privilégios da nobreza malazana por uma vida a serviço do exército imperial. O que o jovem capitão não sabia, porém, era que seu destino acabaria entrelaçado aos desígnios dos deuses, e que ele seria praticamente arremessado ao centro de um dos maiores conflitos que o Império Malazano já tinha visto.Paran é enviado a Darujhistan, a última entre as Cidades Livres de Genabackis, onde deve assumir o comando dos Queimadores de Pontes, um lendário esquadrão de elite. O local ainda resiste à ocupação malazana e é a joia cobiçada pela imperatriz Laseen, que não está disposta a estancar o derramamento de sangue enquanto não conquistá-lo.Porém, em pouco tempo fica claro que essa não será uma campanha militar comum: na Cidade do Fogo Azul não está em jogo apenas o futuro do Império Malazano, mas estão envolvidos também deuses ancestrais, criaturas das sombras e uma magia de poder inimaginável.Em Jardins da lua, Steven Erikson nos apresenta um universo complexo de cenários estonteantes e ações vertiginosas que mostram por que esta é considerada uma das maiores sagas épicas."Em termos de construção de universo e ambição narrativa, O Livro Malazano dos Caídos é talvez a série mais significativa da última década." – Boston Globe

The Seven Cities Rebellion has been crushed. Sha'ik is dead. One last rebel force remains, holed up in the city of Y'Ghatan and under the fanatical command of Leoman of the Flails. The prospect of laying siege to this ancient fortress makes the battle-weary Malaz 14th Army uneasy. For it was here that the Empire's greatest champion Dassem Ultor was slain and a tide of Malazan blood spilled. A place of foreboding, its smell is of death.

But elsewhere, agents of a far greater conflict have made their opening moves.
The Crippled God has been granted a place in the pantheon, a schism threatens and sides must be chosen. Whatever each god decides, the ground-rules have changed, irrevocably, terrifyingly and the first blood spilled will be in the mortal world.

A world in which a host of characters, familiar and new, including Heboric Ghost Hands, the possessed Apsalar, Cutter, once a thief now a killer, the warrior Karsa Orlong and the two ancient wanderers Icarium and Mappo--each searching for such a fate as they might fashion with their own hands, guided by their own will. If only the gods would leave them alone. But now that knives have been unsheathed, the gods are disinclined to be kind. There shall be war, war in the heavens. And, the prize? Nothing less than existence itself...

Here is the stunning new chapter in Steven Erikson magnificent Malazan Book of the Fallen--hailed as an epic of the imagination and acknowledged as a fantasy classic in the making.

All is not well in the Letherii Empire. Rhulad Sengar, the Emperor of a Thousand Deaths, spirals into madness, surrounded by sycophants and agents of his Machiavellian chancellor. Meanwhile, the Letherii secret police conduct a campaign of terror against their own people. The Errant, once a farseeing god, is suddenly blind to the future. Conspiracies seethe throughout the palace, as the empire - driven by the corrupt and self-interested - edges ever-closer to all-out war with the neighboring kingdoms.

The great Edur fleet--its warriors selected from countless numbers of people--draws closer. Amongst the warriors are Karsa Orlong and Icarium Lifestealer--each destined to cross blades with the emperor himself. That yet more blood is to be spilled is inevitable... Against this backdrop, a band of fugitives seek a way out of the empire, but one of them, Fear Sengar, must find the soul of Scabandari Bloodeye. It is his hope that the soul might help halt the Tiste Edur, and so save his brother, the emperor. Yet, traveling with them is Scabandari's most ancient foe: Silchas Ruin, brother of Anomander Rake. And his motives are anything but certain - for the wounds he carries on his back, made by the blades of Scabandari, are still fresh.

Fate decrees that there is to be a reckoning, for such bloodshed cannot go unanswered--and it will be a reckoning on an unimaginable scale. This is a brutal, harrowing novel of war, intrigue and dark, uncontrollable magic; this is epic fantasy at its most imaginative, storytelling at its most thrilling.
