Nearly every character you've come to loathe over the past 3 books has some role to play. The grand scheme isn't the best, but it's hardly the point. This is where you finally get the pay off grudges, plots and punishments left undone in book 2. Narration is exceptional.
Great addition to a good series. Many good characters developed well. Excellent fight scenes especially with the bloody nine.
If you're a fan of the darker side of epic fantasy, this series will be a garunteed favorite. Abercrombie masterfully creates a world, not of good and evil, but of necessity and reproduction. Good men become villains, and monsters appear more earnest than their grotesque appearance would suggest in the final notch in the First Law Series.
A very well written almost poetic epic journey. Each verse was timeless and every arch type explored topped with intrigue and unexpected turns. I will most likely read it again and save the passages that are quotable and useful in daily life. Highly recommend!
The story is fantastic (although a little more language then I personally care for). However, not only does the author have an incredible sense of humor lived out through the different characters. The narrator does a beyond amazing job of switching between voices and capturing the essence of what I imagine these characters to sound like. Well done all around!
I liked it better than game of thrones. Game of thrones kind of drags on with big parts in between while this keeps you interested the whole time. This one has a good conclusion and answers all your questions. It was a good book and series.
One of the greatest tales ever told. Characters are lovable and lasting. At the end of the story you are left wanting more. Wanting to hear what became of these epic pillars of virtue and morality.
