Its already become my second favorite series behind The Black Company and superseding Game of Thrones. Its fantasy without the apparent goods and evils of something like Wheel of Time. Its incredibly well written and set in a excellent fantasy world with an already awesome cast of characters. If you havent read The Black Company, I'd recommend maybe starting off with those, as they're shorter, easier to get into but really sell the idea of grey morality in the same way that Malazan does. I cant recommend it enough if you like grey fantasy, or any for that matter.
