Malazan Book of The Fallen

You guys ever read/heard about of any of these books? They're Amazing.

From wikipedia:

"The Malazan Book of the Fallen is an epic fantasy series written by Canadian author Steven Erikson, published in ten volumes beginning with the novel Gardens of the Moon, published in 1999. The series was completed with the publication of The Crippled God in February 2011. Erikson's series is complex with a wide scope, and presents the narratives of a large cast of characters.[1][2][3][4] Erikson's plotting presents a complicated series of events in the world upon which the Malazan Empire is located. Each of the first five novels is relatively self-contained, in that it resolves its respective primary conflict; but many underlying characters and events are interwoven throughout the works of the series, binding it together."

 

The author manages to create such a complex world, with not only the typical elements we see in fantasy but also a very in-depth descriptions of different cultures, religions, in both human and non-human societies, it's such a great trip to read.

I suggest you give it a try and don't mind the first book much, 'cause everyone agrees it's the worst of the series but it gets better after it. The story is also very complex with a lot of characters and different sub-plots so it's a bit difficult to follow and you have to reach the books multiple times, but the author manages to bring it back and wrap it up at the end. I enjoyed these books more each time i read it. I'm on the third reread of book 6 right now.
