Publisher's Summary

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.

Their journey will take them across the barren plains to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feud, duel and massacre, high into the unmapped mountains to a reckoning with the Ghosts. Even worse, it will force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune, and his feckless lawyer Temple, two men no one should ever have to trust....

    "More First Law excellence"

    Joe Abercrombie has really created something special with the First Law. I've never enjoyed another series as much. Hope one day he'll write another.

    "The best expanded First Law book so far"

    the western style works well with Joe Abercrombie unforgiving narratives. if you like abercrombie's style of Storytelling, you will probably like this book. I would venture to say it is the best First Law book so far, even better than the original trilogy.

    "Great book, even better narration"

    Abercrombie and Pacey are some of the best at what they do. If your wondering if this is worth your time/money, don't. this is a great story and Pacey is the King of Voices. I would recommend reading The First Law Trilogy if you haven't though, it's not necessary but I promise that you will enjoy this one more afterwards. everything Abercrombie writes is gold.

    "Great Characters and action"

    I loved the flawed characters and love the fact that characters from the other books in this book. Seeing the characters aged, as we all do, and what they have gained through their life experience. Some have grown, like Lamb/9 Fingers, in their prospect about themselves and life. Nicomo Cosca, he only becomes worse. But I love Nicomi. He provides great humour with his comments on life and reactions.
    I like the way Joe Abercrombie writes his characters as they make the story and build the interest in the story . The characters give the colour to the story line. The more real the character the more interesting the story for me.
    I totally enjoy Steven Pacey's narration. I am glad the latest Joe Abercrombie's books are being narrated by Pacey.

    "Two awesome dudes"

    Abercrombie and Pacey-
    I wish the two of you could produce content together as fast as I can listen to it. Brilliant, poignant, caustic, rhetorically skilled writing. A voice so diverse I could swear it was performed by a cast of hundreds. If you like interesting characters who do interesting things and who have interesting insights into themselves and their world, then listen to this book. And if you want to catch up on old, nine fingered friends, you might fancy this one as well. Thank you, Mr. Abercrombie, for making me laugh, making me think, making me worry, and even making a grown man shed a tear for what feels like the tortured life of an old, if fictional, friend.
    With literary love,
    Adam

    "Great story"

    I'm a truck driver and I can't sit down and read like I used to. I love how gritty Joe Abercrombie's books are. it really satisfies the adult fantasy fan in me. Pacey brings life to the characters just like I was reading the book myself.

    "Red Country.. and no country for old men..."

    If Joe Abercrombie wrote a Western this would be it. it has all the trappings of a classic Western story told through the lens of the first law trilogy. It also is as grim and dark as ever. Death and murder abound.. and it feels like the movie no country for old men.

    The killing gets done, but nobody's happy about it.

    Enjoy it for what it is, and it isn't. B+/A- work overall.

    "amazing"

    joe you the man. to really appreciate his work you need to read/listen to all of these books. each ties in with others with multiple refrences to earlier books. If i were to pick an order of books it would be ; the first law trilogy, best served cold, heroes, then red country. reason is chronological order and references that you would only get if you had read the previous. but by no means think that each of joes books could not stand alone. all have different plots and main story lines. joes genious lies in creating an evolving world and dynamic characters where no one is truly good or evil and the world doesnt simply end because a particular story is done. nor does the world revolve around a single person. in the words of my favorite character joes world....has to be realistic. has to be lol
