Product description

Review

"The battles are vivid and visceral, the action brutal, the pace headlong, and Abercrombie piles the betrayals, reversals, and plot twists one atop another to keep us guessing how it will all come out. This is his best book yet." --- George R.R. Martin

"Joe Abercrombie takes the grand tradition of high fantasy literature and drags it down into the gutter, in the best possible way. Monza is a beautiful mercenary who has sworn to kill the seven men who tried to kill her. No elves, no wands - just lots of down-and-dirty swordplay." --- Time

"Abercrombie is both fiendishly inventive and solidly convincing, especially when sprinkling his appallingly vivid combat scenes with humor so dark that it's almost ultraviolet." --- Publishers Weekly

Book Description

Violent, bloody and fast-paced; this is the ultimate revenge fantasy by bestselling author Joe Abercrombie.

Read the first law trilogy, enjoyed it, bought this hoping for more of the same. It's not there I'm afraid. I didn't really connect with any of the characters, Shivers felt like a watered down bloody nine, other characters felt pointless (Day, Friendly) and Monza was too one dimensional to really feel anything for. I felt a little cheated by the 'twist' at the end too, I was hoping for a battle royale clash with Shenkt, and got nothing. Meh

I can safely say that Joe Abercrombie delivers every time. I have not read one of his books that have left me feeling disappointed at the end. I don't know if it should have but Best Served Cold had some great laugh out loud moments for me. All the characters were larger than life. Utterly Briiliant

Was non stop bloody fights in a land where everyone is fighting everyone. To be fair the main character was not a bad person just life pushed her to do what she did. Enjoyed this new book with new and old faces. I like a book with a nice ending.

This author has a great style building good characters. I loved the first law trilogy. These are as good as the others.

Vivid characters, blunt wit, blood and gore, no slop sex, wise words and a happy ending. Hard to put this one down. What were Ishri and Shenkt?

Like all of Abercrombie's books, took a little time to get through. Had to keep taking breaks to look around and reassure myself not all is bad in the world

Worth seeing through to the end, though
