Hedge by Johntocaelpiano

Artist's comments:

So this is a picture of one of the most heartbreaking, most glorious, most badass, most BRIDGEBURNER moment in the entire Malazan Book of the Fallen series (up to this point). Hedge, who had never really been more than a supporting character whose main features were that he had a weathered face, liked to blow things up, and... well just read:

The K'Chain Che'Malle seemed to flow as it raced over the rubble, blades lifting.

Hedge looked up - to find himself four paces away from the charging reptile.

Picker heard him grunt, a muted momentary sound -

The sapper threw the cusser straight down.

The K'Chain Che'Malle was already swinging - two huge blades descending--

The explosion beat them clean.

Hedge, along with the rest of the Bridgeburners, ascends to High House Death and takes his role as the Mason. What an amazing series. Steven Erikson, you make me wish I payed more attention to my anthropology professor. Though he was a bit of a hippy and had us watch the Animatrix...

Hedge, K'Chain Che'Malle, and the Malazan Book of the Fallen series are copyright Steven Erikson, Tor Book, etc
