Kolanse was a region to the east of the continent of Lether, past the Wastelands[1] and the Glass Desert.

Estobanse Province, was the richest land of the Kolanse, thriving on springs. The southern kingdoms suffered from droughts, however.[2] Overfarming of thin topsoil led to spreading desertification that left Kolanse teetering on the edge of starvation.[1]

Several decades before the start of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, Kolanse had experienced a series of cyclically expansionist regimes which drove the tribes of Lether's plains westward against the frontier of the Letherii Empire. Following a civil war, Kolanse retreated into isolation.[3]

It was revealed that Adjunct Tavore was secretly leading her army, the Bonehunters, from the west, through the Glass Desert to Kolanse in order to free the Crippled God who was chained there.

Her brother Ganoes Paran infiltrated the North citadel (called North Keep by the Forkrul Assail) to attack from the north.
