  1. Wow. What can I say. I'm not good at being able to convey what I'm feeling, but I'd like to try. Let me start by saying that I have NOT read AMoL, just yet. I've had some health issues, and I've just been able to get back around to catching up on certain hobbies. The fact that I HAVEN'T yet read the book is where my heart is, at the moment. I just wanted to say that WoT has been some part of my life for 20+ years now. I started reading it as an early teenager. And last year, when this last installment that would finally wrap up our great story was set to finally come out, I wasn't real
  3. Two: Son is 11. Daughter is 12.
  4. *shrugs* These competitions are just a contest of what book has the most fans anyway. 99% of the voters will vote for any character they recognize, regardless of what character is actually better, which is the reason why WoT and ASOIAF characters do so well in it every year. I guess its fair. Quick Ben, another Malazan, won last year. Beating Vin from Mistborn in the finals. They didnt want Malazan to win two years running. But they also shouldnt have even entered Rake into the battle at all. They should have stepped it down to Khalam or Karsa Oslong.
  5. ....... You. Please. http://www.dragonmount.com/forums/topic/69563-the-fall-of-the-son-of-darkness/ Thank. You.
  6. Moraine defeats Anomander Rake in the 2012 Suvudu Cage Match. Although STRICTLY IMPOSSIBLE, somehow Moraine comes out on top. So for those of you that are unfamiliar with Anomander Rake, the title The Son of Darkness might make you think of an evil character. Nothing could be further from the truth. In the Malazan world, Dark is just another aspect of the Universe. The stereotype of Light meaning good, and Night even evil is not the case here. The various aspects of the universe are such as Dark, Light, Shadow, Life, Death, etc. Each have the full spectrum of good to evil aligned chara
  7. Honestly guys. There's no chance Moraine could win against Rake. I'm just as much the adoring,.worshipping fan of WoT as everyone else on our forum, but its just impossible. Anyway. I'm curious. How many of you are familiar with Anomander Rake? And by that I mean truly know his character, having read at least through Toll the Hounds, book 8. You don't really get a true understanding of him until the end of Toll the Hounds. So I guess I'm wondering if there's ANYONE whos read both series and still thinks Moraine can win. Also see my new thread on this battle. GOTO: http://www.dragonmount.
  8. Yeah, but in Malazan, Karsa Oslong tells Samar Dev, "I'll split you in two." And he's not talking about with his sword. Not the metal one, anyway. And that makes Malazan > ASoFaI.
  9. I don't remember him being in Elantris, but he was def in Warbreaker. And of course appeared quite a lot in Kings.
  10. Yeah. I finished Reapers gale a bit ago. Gonna actually try to find Night of Knives somewhere, if I can't, guess ill grab Toll The Hounds.
  11. I guess he could have ascended in Rakaru, but I just figured he did when the rest of the BBS did. But even if he ascended 100 years ago, that's still new in comparison to hundreds of thousands of years. He's still a pimp, tho. And I now something is up with him. Cuz Hedge asked something like "How long you think those souls are gonna want to stay hidden" inside him. But I agree as far as the "theme" you're talking about goes. And I was wondering, if the Errant is the elder version of Oponn, then who is the "younger" version of Mael?
  12. Mmmmmm, Swedish Women. Here in the States, we think Swedish Women are hot. Oh, and Asians. Rock Hill, South Carolina Located almost directly on the border of North Carolina. 10 minutes south of Charlotte, NC. 3 hours north of a city called Charleston, South Carolina, which many of you should recognise, as it was the home of one Robert Jordan. (Whom I've met!)
  13. SPOILER ALERT. Yeah. And they had help finishing them off by those Imass Soletaken. But still. QB is a newly ascended ascendant, and he literally dropped 3 OTHER, even older ascendants, who also happen to be Soletaken Dragons, right out of the fn sky like a bag of bricks. And those pebbles he used. Are they just part of his normal magics or did someone help him by giving him those stones.
  14. It's ok, Im past Beaks part. Almost done with the book. Yeah, that was a good scene. Side note: QB was always a baddass imo, but what he did there near the end of the book against YouKnowWho x 3, was over the top. Spoiler alert. And Hedge. How baddass is grenading a fn dragon. Lol. You gotz magikz firez? Say hello to my lil friend, Mr Cusser. Kaboom. KaThx. KaBye. KaDriveThruPlz. Three fn ancient ascendant dragons vs two Bridgeburners.
  15. Come on, now! I'm only about half way thru Reapers gale, and Beak is still around, that's why I thought she meant someone else. Only reason I even read the spoiler part was because id finishes Bonehunters. Poor Beak. Either she confused the book or the character, cuz a few sad things do happen to main characters in Bonehunters. I just want to add. Karsa is pure baddassness. His character is developing in the perfect direction. "I'd split you in two." But is he not growing more powerful each day? I mean he gets his ass kicked all over the place when he first leaves his village or whatev
  16. I checked two Books a Millions. I'll check Barnes n Noble.
  17. Neither bookstore I've been to have anything by Esslemont. I've been reading the Malazan books by Erickson, and I've just finished Bonehunters. Was wanting to get Night of Knives. But they had nothing. Anyone else having trouble finding these books? I went ahead and for Reapers Gale instead. Read about a 1/4 of it last night. Series is so good.
  18. I know. I doubted either was gone for good. Especially where one of them ended up being drug into. And the other, well, what better way to go than against potentially one of the most powerful creatures around. I couldn't find ANYTHING by Esslemont at the book store . Was gonna get night of knives or whatever, but got reaper's gale instead.
  19. Just finished The Bonehunters. I hate this damn series. I hope I never see another Malazan book as long as I live. They're both dead! Both of them! Why dear god, why? My spirit is broken RL. I've lost my way. I shall now become to our world, what Icarium was to Malazan. Which means I shall require someone to follow me around and hit me over the head when I start bustin' caps with, what will most likely be, a Nerf Launcher. Those were my two fav chars. And one my super favorite. I've fallen into despair.
  20. Yeah, I've only recently heard of him. I wanted to read ICEs first book before I started Bonehunters, but I'm almost done with Bonehunters so ill read it next. Have been hearing that reading his first book fits in nice right before Bonehunters, but oh well. Hopefully right after will suffice. It's kind of bad ass, actually. Having these two authors have their characters cross over into each others paths and histories.
  21. Yeah, sorry for the format of the extract. I did it on a cell phone, and seem to be without options on the formatting. I like that chapter. I think the writing is perfect. And I absolutely love it when Karsa smashes things. Thanks for at least replying. A completely different, 180 degree turn opinion is the way of the world. Now if I can only get a few more tongues a waggin'.
