Publisher's Summary

Shy South comes home to her farm to find a blackened shell; her brother and sister have been stolen and she's going to have to return to her bad old ways if she's ever going to see them again. She sets off in grim pursuit with only her cowardly old step-father Lamb for company. But it turns out he's hiding a bloody past of his own. None bloodier.

Their journey will take them across the lawless plains, to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feuds, duels and massacres, and high into unmapped mountains to a reckoning with ancient enemies, and force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune...and a man no one should ever have to trust…

Steven Pacey is best known for his role as Del Tarrant in the third and fourth seasons of the sci-fi series Blake's 7.

He has worked extensively in Theatre, TV and film for many years and in 2009 played opposite Graham Norton in La Cage Aux Folles at London's Playhouse Theatre. He has read numerous audiobooks including Joe Abercrombie's First Law Trilogy, Best Served Cold and The Heroes, and abridged titles by Matthew Reilly.

    "Abercrombie at his almost best."

    I listen to many audiobooks to pass the time while I work, and Joe Abercrombie's never fail to hit the spot. Stephen Pacey really gives a masterful performance in his narration, and puts nearly all other narrators to shame. Add this to the fact that Jow Abercrombie writes some of the most exciting, gritty and gruesome fantasy fiction around, and you've got a real winning combination.



    While perhaps not quite as good as his previous book 'The Heroes', 'Red Country', that is more a reflection on just how good a novel that was. Red Country still deserves its 5 star rating and is full of Abercrombie's trademark mix of bleakness, violence and humour. The western setting works well, and fits Abercrombie's writing style like a glove. Though all the characters are interesting and three dimensional, it is a couple of larger than life recurring characters that really steal the show.



    A thoroughly exciting adventure, and the audiobook format works especially well. I encourage you to get it, even if you have read the book.

    "Cowboys and Fantasy"

    I know there aren't actually any cowboys in this but it has the feel of a Wild West / Fantasy novel combination about it - and theres nothing wrong with it! I liked it - its a supplemntary book to the First Law series and has some of the characters reprising their roles so if you liked the First Law then its a good book to add to your library, I found it easy to slip back into the characters and Steven Pacey's reading was familiar and put me at ease with the new (and old) characters very quickly.

    "great book and narrator"

    It took me a few chapters to get into the heart of this book, but then I could not stop listening to it. Great to see old characters again and another wonderful book from Mr Abercrombie

    "A fantasy western"

    From the music at the beginning we are back with Abercrombie's other novels, and his First Law Trilogy. A gold rush brings chaos and murder to Square Deal,and Shy South's farm is burned, her brother and sister stolen away. We are into Western themes of search and revenge, with characters from his other books appearing again, including Nine Fingers, Nicomo Cosca and his mercenaries.

    Steven Pacey is an excellent reader, maintaining consistency over all the books.
