More about Erikson books... posted 01 June 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionMore about Erikson books... by Murrin, Peralogue

Well, the fifth book is pretty much set apart from the rest of the series so far. A different continent, a different cast, and only small references to things that go on elsewhere. There's a PoV character from House of Chains, but MT is set before that book so it won't spoil the storyline.
It may however be better to have read Memories of Ice first - MT has references to characters and events that were introduced or occured in the third book of the series - although relatively minor. The one major-ish spoiler might not even be understood until MoI is read and so probably wouldn't spoil much at all.
So I guess it wouldn't matter much if you read Midnight Tides first (as long as you still read MoI before HoC), but personally I'd think it better to wait for MoI first. view post
