Superior Glokta has a problem. How do you defend a city surrounded by enemies and riddled with traitors when your allies can by no means be trusted, and your predecessor vanished without a trace? It's enough to make a torturer want to run - if he could even walk without a stick.

Logen Ninefingers, infamous barbarian, has finally run out of luck. Caught in one feud too many, he's on the verge of becoming a dead barbarian - leaving nothing behind him but bad songs, dead friends, and a lot of happy enemies. Nobleman, dashing officer, and paragon of selfishness, Captain Jezal dan Luthar has nothing more dangerous in mind than fleecing his friends at cards and dreaming of glory in the fencing circle. But war is brewing, and on the battlefields of the frozen North they fight by altogether bloodier rules.

Acadia, the last human city. For 200 years, vicious creatures have laid siege to the city, leaving the land rough with the bodies of the fallen. For Cojax, training to become a defender of the city is his greatest ambition. That all changes when a girl from outside the city walls appears - from a land that supposedly held no life. Her presence threatens to undermine the entire society, putting Cojax in an impossible situation. He must now choose between what is right and what is necessary for humanity to survive.

A good continuation of the first HOWEVER, I don't think I can recommend the other books. while this book was interesting and the over idea was funny its rather short and makes you want to get the next one, wherein lies my conundrum and is why I write this review for the second. The other books after and including this one close to the end just degrade into gross out humor, the plot wanes and the main characters seem to get worse. It made me sad that I had bought the others after listening to them. Anyway that's my opinion.

Tim and his friends find out the hard way that you shouldn't question the game master, and you shouldn't make fun of his cape. One minute, they're drinking away the dreariness of their lives, escaping into a fantasy game and laughing their asses off. The next minute, they're in a horse-drawn cart surrounded by soldiers pointing crossbows at them.
