Book Description

31 Oct 2013 Low Town

Low Town: the worst ghetto in the worst city in the Thirteen Lands.

Good only for depravity and death. And Warden, long ago a respected agent in the formidable Black House, is now the most depraved Low Town denizen of them all.

As a younger man, Warden carried out more than his fair share of terrible deeds, and never as many as when he worked for the Black House. But Warden's growing older, and the vultures are circling. Low Town is changing, faster than even he can control, and Warden knows that if he doesn't get out soon, he may never get out at all.

But Warden must finally reckon with his terrible past if he can ever hope to escape it. A hospital full of lunatics, a conspiracy against the corrupt new king and a ghetto full of thieves and murderers stand between him and his slim hope for the future. And behind them all waits the one person whose betrayal Warden never expected. The one person who left him, broken and bitter, to become the man he is today.

The one woman he ever loved.

She who waits behind all things.

Product Description


Praise for TOMORROW, THE KILLING:"With THE STRAIGHT RAZOR CURE, Polansky pushed the envelope of modern fantasy. With TOMORROW, THE KILLING, he tears through the envelope and pushes for horizons yet unseen." (Myke Cole, author of Control Point)

'In TOMORROW, THE KILLING, Polansky shows us he is no one-book wonder... If you haven't read Polansky yet, you must remedy this ASAP. He writes gripping, addictive stories with a grim eloquence...Very, very highly recommended. Polansky is definitely among my new favourite authors. Essential reading.' (

Polansky is a deft, sensitive dramatist with the blackest sense of humor--and LOW TOWN is brilliant proof. Polansky has managed to craft an assured, roaring, and rollicking hybrid, a cross-genre free-for-all that relishes its tropes while spitting out their bones. And he does it all while spinning one hell of a gripping mystery. Much like its grim, perversely charismatic antihero, LOW TOWN stakes a narrow turf--then completely owns every inch of it. (The AV Club on THE STRAIGHT RAZOR CURE)

Imagine that Quentin Tarantino, possessed by the ghost of J.R.R. Tolkien, did an eight-ball of cocaine and wrote a novel to be read by the late Johnny Cash. LOW TOWN is something like that, only better. (52 Book Reviews on THE STRAIGHT RAZOR CURE)

Book Description

The third novel in Daniel Polansky's brilliant dark fantasy Low Town series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing 2 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of the Low Town series and was eagerly anticipating this new release and I'm very pleased to say that 'She Who Waits' doesn't dissapoint in any way.

All Wardens chickens are coming home to roost at once and this time it's becoming more and more difficult for him to see a way out. Low Town as a place once again comes alive and gives a wholly convincing backdrop to the story which along with a varied and engaging cast really pushes the story along.

The sarcastic and caustic tone is once again front and centre with the hint of violence underlining every exchange, and when it does erupt it is always hard hitting.

It's not for the faint hearted but the ending is stunning and even though you may expect what's coming I was completely floored by the execution. Overall I can't emphasise enough what a brilliant addition to a brilliant series this is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific. 26 Jun 2014

Follows on seamlessly from the previous two excellent titles and brings a logical finale to the series.
Can't wait for his next work although I shall miss the perils and plots of Low Town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great end to the trilogy! 12 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed all of the Low Town novels this being no exception. A great grim dark romp filled with the usual intrigue and cut throat action that has been central to my enjoyment. The characters are likable even when they are being swines. If you enjoy the likes of Abercrombie or Gemmel jump into the Low Town series and you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best. 6 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have never written a review on here but having read the last instalment in this awesome series I felt I had to add my recommendation.

Well written, gripping and a bloody good ride that ends in a brick wall.

4.0 out of 5 stars I just love this series 22 Jan 2014
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Daniel is one of those authors who exploded onto the scene a couple of years ago. His writing was fresh, it had great pace and when added to a writing style that really takes his fantasy world into a unique position all round generates a story that really keeps you glued.

Throw into this a great cast, cracking dialogue and of course an overall arc that keeps you guessing and to be honest I was more than a happy reader. Cracking.
