    Bitter and merciless war is coming to the frozen north. It's bloody and dangerous and the Union army, split by politics and hamstrung by incompetence, is unprepared for the slaughter that's coming. Lacking experience, training, and in some cases even weapons, the army is scarcely equipped to repel Bethod's scouts, let alone his elite forces. In the heat-ravaged south, the Gurkish are massing to assault the city of Dagoska, defended by Inquisitor Glokta.

    They burned her home. They stole her brother and sister. But vengeance is following. Shy South hoped to bury her bloody past and ride away smiling, but she'll have to sharpen up some bad old ways to get her family back, and she's not a woman to flinch from what needs doing. She sets off in pursuit with only a pair of oxen and her cowardly old step father Lamb for company. But it turns out Lamb's buried a bloody past of his own. And out in the lawless Far Country the past never stays buried.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters. Joe has created some great ones. When tackling books of this size ultimately its the characters that drive the story. The humor in the books is great also. something I think alot of fantasy stories lack. Joe`s wry,cynical humor is just great. Then of course there is the action. I would say "gritty", is a great way to describe it. overall Red Country has all the esentials of a truly entertaining, and often insightful book.


    What does Steven Pacey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is as good as i have heard. I was glad to see him back for Red Country.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Wanted to? I almost did. About two days.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone interested in a fun,thoughtful story, cant go wrong here. I would recomend starting with "The First Law" trilogy, so u can know each characters backstory. But isnt essential. You wont be lost.
