House of Chains Malazan Sam Burley

We’re no stranger to The Malazan Empire here and we are big fans of the artist Sam Burley. When we saw that Subterranean Press was releasing an illustrated edition of the fourth volume of Malazan Book of the Fallen, House of Chains (which is already sold out, unfortunately) we had to get a better look. Sam certainly delivered the epic in these! Click through to see some gorgeous art!
