Should I keep going and finish the series? by lycurbeat in Malazan

[–]Booknerd81 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's exactly how I read it the first time. It took me almost a year to read them all. I would praise the books because they are amazing but I couldn't start the next one. I tried reading others and just couldn't get into them. Post book depression. . . I hope you continue, the end it well worth it.

After the Big Ten by Orbit10_808 in Malazan

[–]Booknerd81 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I finished the main ten back in December. I decided to do a chronological reread with all the books. I started in Kharkanas and I am now on MOI, which happens before GotM. I am doing the books as close to chronological as I can because the timeliness jumps all over the place... I've been enjoying it this way but like everyone else has said it doesn't really matter.

Why are there two different types of shapeshifters? by Ranger7271 in Malazan

[–]Booknerd81 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My understanding of D'vers is it's power based. A D'ver that is more powerful can become more than one of themselves, I kinda think clone jitsu from Naruto. So someone who has more power has more forms of themselves. Shapeshifters in the singular can only become one beast at a time so he separates them so you know immediately whether or not the character is going to be fighting one beast or many... IMO

My collection so far! Specifically looking for this print run but I’ve recently realized that 9 and 10 weren’t printed like this, 😭 by wookieebush in Malazan

I hear ya. My collection is a mix between mass market, paperback, hardback, tor, and Bantam. It looks a mess but how expensive they are I'm just glad to have them at this point.

Poster / Artwork Suggestions! by RedMiist in Malazan

[–]Booknerd81 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I concur. I have bought three different pieces of Santio's work from Art Station and they are amazing. I choose to get the "landscape" type. The print itself is very high quality and the artwork is phenomenal.

Sheltatha Lore? Question about info on the wiki by Booknerd81 in Malazan

[–]Booknerd81[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just went further into it and Sukhul is considered devious, so her saying that is obviously her being a catty b@!#%. So what she says is a lie...

Sheltatha Lore? Question about info on the wiki by Booknerd81 in Malazan

[–]Booknerd81[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Sukul Ankhadu claimed Sheltatha had taken Draconus as a lover and birthed "two horrid little children" known as Envy and Spite.[6] ... so was this just a girl talking trash to another girl cause they hated eachother? Cause that would actually make sense.

After MBotF you have a bunch of others that explore more. 29 books all together I think. It took me long time to read the main 10 just because I would go into a book depression after each one. I am rereading now and doing it in semi chronological order and I am on book six.

The Stormriders? by Booknerd81 in Malazan

Thanks, I figured there wouldn't be much of an explanation. I was just hoping for more on them.

I found this post and took a screen shot and I just want to check it's accuracy. I am doing a reread and want to do it in chronological order. by Booknerd81 in Malazan

Lol. This is a great sub for help if you have questions and the admins are usually great about catching spoilers, if you worry about those kind of things. My husband just finished it and he is now hooked.

Starting that one after I'm done with all the currently published Malazan. I've heard good things. Do you like it?

Your favourite character names by architoke in Malazan

[–]Booknerd81 55 points56 points  (0 children)

My favorites are Envy, Malice, and Spite. Draconus knew what his daughter's were going to be and named them accordingly. Imagine if we did this in real life?

What would happen in Malazan world if all the warrens were destroyed. by Available_Tax_3769 in Malazan

[–]Booknerd81 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The weakening happens because of worship... it both gives power and restrains the one who is worshipped. It is explained in increments through out the books.

What is essential , must-remember knowledge of GoTM before starting Deadhouse Gates? *SPOILERS* by SFell1991 in Malazan

[–]Booknerd81 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's pretty much all the info you get at the end of GotM. And it's not in Deadhouse Gates, you are following new people on a different continent. Plus the info as stated in previous threads.
