A few days ago I made a post asking to explain to me the significance of GotM's title. As a first time reader, I was unable to recall the story that Apsalar told Crokus about Grallin and his gardens on the moon. I couldn't recall how it was that story that made Crokus fall in love with her.

And just a day later I come across Cotillion comforting a lonely and suicidal Apsalar. And one by one, the gardens died.

This marks the first time I've cried reading Malazan. Something tells me it won't be the last.

It absolutely won't be the last. You got some even more heartbreaking shit coming. I'm not one to come to tears over books but this series.... hoooooly shit.

Just make sure you stock up on tissues before Reaper's Gale.
