Highly recommended - a funny, finely-wrought, terrifically energetic work of high fantasy. Seek it out (Joe Hill)
Before They Are Hanged is an excellent sequel from an author writing compelling, character-driven, adult fantasy, for readers who want to be entertained as well as challenged. (SFF WORLD)
In my opinion, Joe Abercrombie possesses all the qualities that made David Eddings such a powerhouse during the 80s and 90s. Before They Are Hanged is a satisfying sequel which should establish Joe Abercrombie as one of the bright new voices of the genre. (FANTASY HOT LIST)
Before They Are Hanged grabs you and drags you along. (SFF SITE)
Dark, deeply ironic and full of character gems that will appeal to your cynical side, Before They Are Hanged is as brilliant as its predecessor. (John Berlyne SF REVU)
"We're right there in the heads of these dudes, thanks to the author's style of showcasing their thoughts. His knowing turn of phrase means that situations often appear ironic, with peripheral characters verging on the Dickensian. This follow-up is crammed with unexpected betrayals, murders and liaisons, often catching us off guard." (Dave Bradley SFX)

The last book I enjoyed. This book I thoroughly enjoyed!
One of my fave narrators brings to life a colourful story full of real characters and exciting conflicts. Brutal battles and tormenting tortures mixed with hilarious relationships and fabulous settings. This series is building by the book, I can feel it, and I want more!
Love all of the POV characters, an absolute joy...
Bayaz continues his quest to the far West, Major West tries to survive a disastrous war in Angland, and Inspector Glotka, the torturer, tries to do his masters' bidding and save bits of the Union from collapse.
Contains some black humour and painfully realistic fight scenes.
