By

Rating
The final novel in the First Law Trilogy by" New York Times" bestseller Joe Abercrombie. Logen Ninefingers might only have one more fight in him -- but it's going to be a big one. Battle rages across the North, the king of the Northmen still stands firm, and there's only one man who can stop him. His oldest friend, and his oldest enemy: it's time for the Bloody-Nine to come home. With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war. A secret struggle in which no one is safe, and no one can be trusted. As his days with a sword are far behind him, it's fortunate that he's deadly with his remaining weapons: blackmail, threats, and torture. Jezal dan Luthar has decided that winning glory is too painful an undertaking and turned his back on soldiering for a simple life with the woman he loves. But love can be painful too -- and glory has a nasty habit of creeping up on a man when he least expects it. The king of the Union lies on his deathbed, the peasants revolt, and the nobles scramble to steal his crown. No one believes that the shadow of war is about to fall across the heart of the Union. Only the First of the Magi can save the world, but there are risks. There is no risk more terrible, than to break the First Law...

Reviews

"Pointed, driven, and sharp." ""Locus "on "Red Country""" "Magnificent, richly entertaining" "Time on "The Heroes""" "Imagine The Lord of the Rings as directed by Kurosawa." "Lev Grossman, Wall Street Journal on "The Heroes""" "New, fresh, and exciting." "The "Independent "(UK)"" "If you're fond of bloodless, turgid fantasy with characters as thin as newspaper and as boring as plaster saints, Joe Abercrombie is really going to ruin your day. A long career for this guy would be a gift to our genre."--Scott Lynch, author of The Lies of Locke Lamora "Abercrombie has written the finest epic fantasy trilogy in recent memory. He's one writer that no one should miss."--Junot Diaz "Bold and authentically original."--Jeff VanderMeer "Bloody and relentless."--George R. R. Martin on Best Served Cold "Exhilarating... Abercrombie's knack for wit and grit holds your attention throughout, and his eye for character means that there's heart as well as muscle."--SFX (UK) "New, fresh, and exciting."--The Independent (UK) "[Abercrombie has] begun breaking his own rules. And succeeding wildly at it. ... [R]arely has Abercrombie had so much fun while rollicking through his colorful cast's foibles and witty dialogue - and rarely has he dished out so much straight-for-the-heart poignancy."--The A.V. Club "Imagine The Lord of the Rings as directed by Kurosawa."--Lev Grossman, Wall Street Journal on The Heroes "Magnificent, richly entertaining"--Time on The Heroes "Pointed, driven, and sharp."--Locus on Red Country
