I have read all of his books and loved them all. the narrator of this book does most all of his books and is phenomenal!
If anyone does it better than JA and Steven Pacey, I don't know who they are. If you have never read any of the First Law books, don't start here, as some story threads get finished off that start in earlier books. But if you are trying to decide if you want to listen to something by Abercrombie, you can't get much better than this.
If you're into this world then get it. definitely worth the listen if for nothing else than to hear the fine narration of Steven Pacey. Abercrombie has became very predictable for me. Figure out a way to have a really climatic journey (i.e. hope for a happy ending) towards an eventual anti-climatic results (i.e. somewhat depressing ending). It's not that I don't like the method, it's just gotten a bit redundant at this point. However, abercrombie does have a tiny suprise ending. He doesn't necessarily do the opposite, but it isn't the same old method. if this was an isolated story I would tell people to pass, but considering most, if not all, people reading this have read the series and want another journey with Logan Ninefingers then you got to listen this leg of the series. Basically if you like Logan, General Cosca, or you just really enjoy the series as a whole then buy. If none of these apply to you then pass.
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.
