Lots of quality bloody nine death and terror. if you liked the other books in the series, you'll love this one.
Another great story by Abercrombie, and another flawless performance by Steven Pacey! I have listened to many, many audiobooks and Pacey is a phenomenal reader! From Shy to Lamb (Logen) to Temple, Sweet or Cosca, Pacey brings them all to life and you always know which character is speaking. A great all around listen from The First Law world!
This book was amazing. I love the dialogue and the thoughts the characters struggle with. It was gritty and it makes you smile and laugh. It provokes thoughts and meaningful understanding. However you should read all the prior First Law books first. They all build on each other very well.
Familiar characters and new in a story that will suck you in. Only problem I have is that I finished it and was left wanting more.
Joe Abercrombie has really created something special with the First Law. I've never enjoyed another series as much. Hope one day he'll write another.
the western style works well with Joe Abercrombie unforgiving narratives. if you like abercrombie's style of Storytelling, you will probably like this book. I would venture to say it is the best First Law book so far, even better than the original trilogy.
Abercrombie and Pacey are some of the best at what they do. If your wondering if this is worth your time/money, don't. this is a great story and Pacey is the King of Voices. I would recommend reading The First Law Trilogy if you haven't though, it's not necessary but I promise that you will enjoy this one more afterwards. everything Abercrombie writes is gold.
