From official release/information:
The second book in Erikson's Tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen series. Deadhouse Gates is the follow up to Erikson's successful Gardens of the Moon, which told the tale of the Bridgeburners and introduced us to the world of the Malazan Empire. This book continues those tales while adding complications to just about every story line the plot touches. The basic story revolves around the Malazan army and it's need to cross a continent in order to get away from a pursuing horde. The horde is not what it appears, the desert they need to run through is not what it appears and there's a lot more going on than it seems.
