5.0 out of 5 stars If you only ever read 3 ? 25 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you only ever read 3 fantasy books ?. the Fantasy/Sci-Fi genre isn't for everyone but this Trilogy is so much more than mere Fantasy. The books are full of characters that you are never quite sure whether to like them or loathe them ( Black Dow, brilliant ), there are no bona fide heroes as such,( well not to my mind anyway ) but that's part of the reason that makes this Trilogy so good. The complexities of the characters and the plots and wisecracks throughout make it compelling reading, the main characters are so strong and interesting that it make take 15 books or so to reach a conclusion. I have read the 5 books ( THE HEROES, BEST SERVED COLD ) by Joe Abercrombie and they are up there with the best Fantasy/Sci-Fi books ever written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing... Until the end 28 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyed these books, could hardly put them down at one point. Barely noticed it was a trilogy, one book just flowed into another, without the normal reintroduction to the plot that you normally get with multi part novels. I loved all the characters, found the story enthralling, fast paced and action packed, and the writing style suited me perfectly (detailed, but not over descriptive). Then I got to the final chapters, and it all fell apart. The main themes suddenly end with very little explanation or detail, plot holes are hurriedly filled with out of place 'twists', and the character stories finish at best implausibably, or more often with no conclusion at all. I can't tell if the author was planning more books so leaving his options open, or simply reached the publishers word count and wrapped things up ASAP. Either way it left me feeling disappointed and cheated, and turned a 5 star epic into a 3-4 star decent effort. What a shame

5.0 out of 5 stars A new fantasy voice worth reading 9 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is so difficult to find fantasy novels that are not derivative or superficial. This is the first I have come across in a long while that is unique and inventive and fun. It has the adult sensibilities of the Game of Thrones series without the soapish claptrap. You will lose your heart to every character, even the sadistic, sociopathic torturer! A must read of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class 18 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyable page turners, grounded in the nitty-gritty horror of violence but alleviated with humour and with an interesting cast of characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars readable 16 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read these and they were ok. Good for readability, so I would say good for airplane type situations. Perhaps I am just a bit down on fantasy books but this is one for those who are fantasy fans. I would not recommend it to anyone who was not already an enthusiast.

Fantastic. Surely cannot be the end. Waiting to read the next book. Will it be the same people in it or perhaps not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, strange ending ...
The characters are not black and white. You actually do not know during the entire book who to "cheer for". The ending was bit surprising and weird. Read more

This is an ok read, but not the best. Some of the characters are entertaining, particularly Glokta, Logen Ninefingers and Ferro, but the rest lack depth and blur a little too... Read more

Read it again in short order and yes it can be a bit sickening in places, but that's life in a violent society. Read more
