The Malazan Re-read of the Fallen - Nok, Ch. 5

Amanda and Bill are up to Chapter Five of Night of Knives in their Malazan re-read:

Do you know that this book is reminding me a little of the story behind the classical music piece Night on a Bare Mountain? The idea of one man (Temper) being sorely tested by demons and sprites on the night of a witches’ Sabbath. There are also hints of Night of the Long Knives from history. The idea of a night of terror, where it seems as though the dead walk. Very, very atmospheric.
