In this sprawling fantasy epic of the Malazan empire at war with its enemies and itself, the first of a projected 10-volume series, Canadian newcomer Erikson offers many larger-than-life scenes and ideas, but his characters seem to shrink to fit the story.


So you are recommending a series that is 10 books in length. Is seen as having weak characters. Has 7-9 books over 1000 - 1200 pages. Yet saying that The Ice and Fire series will be too long and that its far reaching in its attempt to tell a story? Seems like your just frustrated with not having all the books available as opposed to really caring about length or wide story spanning.
