I'm really happy with this, as I had planned to only start this trilogy when all books were released. The other two are here on the shelf, waiting to be read. Psyched!

@Alucard: maybe to add to your dedicated thread (although I know that it is meant for 2018 releases).

How do you guys feel about this release? I heard lots of good stories about this trilogy. Are you excited about this?

I’ve read the first and second books of this trilogy, I enjoyed them both but I felt the second one wasn’t as good as the first. I would love to go into more detail, but I can’t remember why I felt that way.

I think I will start the first of the trilogy at the end of the year so that I have the first 2 finished by the time book 3 is released.

Meh, P2A is middling at best. Considering that this is outselling Kharkanas to the point AWIS has been infedinitely delayed, my faith in the Empire is damaged.

I've been meaning to get to this prequel trilogy, but I think I'll also wait till early next year so I can just read them consecutively.

Do you mean the prequel series, or Malazan in general?

Oh, yeah, I mean just this prequel series. I've read the 10 Malazan novels, Esslemont's accompanying novels, and Forge of Darkness. The first two of this trilogy, Fall of Light, and the Bauchelain and Korbal Broach short novels are what I still need to read.
