Reaper's Gale (Malazan Book of the Fallen, Bk. 7) : The Letherii Empire is in turmoil.

And the venal self-serving courtiers who claim the emperor's ear seem intent on waging all-out war against the empire's neighbours. And there is the matter of the Edur fleet that draws ever closer. Amongst its warriors are Karsa Orlong and Icarium Lifestealer and their presence alone means that blood will be spilled. But a small band of fugitives seeks a way out. One of their company, Fear Sengar, hunts the soul of Scabandari Bloodeye, for with its help they might halt the Tiste Edur and save the emperor, his brother. However Silchas Ruin, brother of Anomander Rake, also travels with them. He carries wounds made by the blades of Scabandari, and seeks revenge. There will be a reckoning - and it will be on an unimaginable scale...
