Just refund the book back to a credit and then buy the book with that credit again. you may need to log out and log back in for your android/iphone audible app but this will allow you download the audiobook without issue.
Absolutely amazing story and voice acting. This is my 4th Joe Abercrombie and Steven Pacey book and I can't wait to experience the next one. What will I do when I've reached the end of all the books... Start over and enjoy them all again I guess!!!
If you love grimdark or gritty fantasy give this book a read. You will not be disappointed. Multidimensional characters, intriguing plot and a very thin line between Heroes and Villains.
Note I give it little stars, because from the series it is the weakest book. It feels as there was no peak of the story or even main point. Still compared with other books by different authors it is ok.
Great story, got to meet one of my favorite characters again. The performance / voice talent was tremendous ; really brought me into the world of the book.

"Red Country" was a fantastic standalone book in "The First Law" universe. It ties in old and new characters with an interesting story and good action. If you enjoyed "The First Law" trilogy, then you will definitely love this book. However, make sure you read the original trilogy followed by the standalone book "Best Served Cold" and then the standalone book "The Heroes" before jumping into "Red Country." Otherwise you will miss out on a lot of important details. All of these books follow the same time line, so don't skip ahead. As always, the narrator did an amazing job! Highly recommend! A+++++++
First, I don't recommend listening to this without having first read The First Law trilogy. You will get much more enjoyment out of this book after finishing the other three.
Secondly, Abercrombie' has a visceral, immersive storytelling ability second to none. It took an hour of listening to his first book in the series to realize that this is as real as fantasy gets. I hate to use the word "fantasy" here, because it's acquired a fanciful connotation over the years that is absolutely not present here. "Red Country" does not disappoint. The figures and personalities within are an amalgam of simultaneous selflessness and selfishness, major strengths and despicable flaws—much like real life, while there are protagonists and antagonists, there are no good guys and bad guys. Simple, complex, and brutal. 5/5
Steven Pacey is a wonder as a narrator. As anyone who has listened to thousands of hours of narration realizes, the narrator can make or break a book, regardless of the skill of the author. Pacey goes above and beyond what is merely adequate—the characters come to life with his wide range of voices and his ability to convey emotions. 5/5
