That’s not the only new development in the Malazan series. Below, we reveal the full cover for the forthcoming Malazan novel Forge of Darkness by Steven Erikson!

Enter the New York Times bestselling Malazan universe at a time that sets the stage for all the tales already told. Erikson returns this fall with a trilogy that takes place millennia before the events of the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

The Forge of Darkness introduces readers to Kurald Galain, the warren of Darkness, and tells an epic tale of a realm whose fate plays a crucial role in shaping the world of the Malazan Empire.  It’s a conflicted time in Kurald Galain, the realm of Darkness, where Mother Dark reigns. But this ancient land was once home to many a power… and even death is not quite eternal. The commoners’ great hero, Vatha Urusander, is being promoted by his followers to take Mother Dark’s hand in marriage, but her Consort, Lord Draconus, stands in the way of such ambitions.

The impending clash sends fissures throughout the realm, and as the rumors of civil war burn through the masses, an ancient power emerges from the long dead seas. Caught in the middle of it all are the First Sons of Darkness, Anomander, Andarist, and Silchas Ruin of the Purake Hold. Steven Erikson brings to life this ancient and important tale set in the world he introduced in the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
