    After centuries of stasis, the island kingdom of Charis began to defy the edicts of the Church of God Awaiting - egged on, some say, by the mysterious warrior-monk Merlin Athawes. Now, in the wars and intrigues that have cascaded from Charis's declaration of independence, the populous Republic of Siddermark is sliding into chaos.

    Story

    The storyline is well done, but I cant help but wonder if we will ever get to the Gbaba at this rate. Also the narration was terrible I know many people found the last book less than satisfactory but compared to this fellow the last books was great. It seems he hasn’t gone back over the previous novels and heard how previous narrators have pronounced the various name and place's.

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Story

    Well this book is everything you have come to expect from Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson the narration is great and all the questions that you had from the series have been answered. I don't know what else to tell you in regards to this book so as not to give any part of the story away other than it was an excellent conclusion to the wheels of time.

    Story
    (3226)

    Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain and shallow, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

    Steven says: "Steven Pacey is magnificient."
    "But still......"
    Overall

    This trilogy is well written and the narration isn’t half bad, the premise of the books is well thought out and the characters are portrayed well. However, after the first and second books you see a lot of bad characters and like most books you expect justice or at least a better state of affairs to occur by the time the end comes around. But instead at the end of the three books evil has not only prevailed over good but what was thought as good is just as evil as it was fighting, not to mention nothing truly getting resolved.
    All is all Joe Abercrombie takes you on a good adventure and keeps you enthralled throughout but at the end instead of a nice clean package your left a little bitter and sad. I suppose it is a far more accurate account of human behavior than many fantasy novels portray but still........
