    I m going to do something that s a little disrespectful and start this review by talking about another fantasy series that I ve enjoyed A Song of Ice and Fire That series rules It has everything I ve wanted in a series since Tolkien but there s one thing to be said about it, neither good or bad, that is a big part of its impact it is da

    4.5 5 stars The Blade Itself was my first entry into a grimdark fantasy novel that I highly enjoyed on this reread, I loved it even Once you ve got a task to do, it s better to do it than live with the fear of itBack in October 2016, the only reason I stumbled upon this bloody marvelous trilogy was that, as many other readers did, I was loo

    Anton Chekhov famously said that if an author mentions a gun, it had better go off at some point, a point often attributed to Raymond Chandler who at least practiced this rule The same goes for fantasy writers Fantasy doesn t need to be all blood and whirling blades, but if a fantasy writer straps a broadsword to a character s side, it had bett

    I was up until half five yesterday morning reading intensely to finish off this story I didn t write the review then as it would have been a tired, mumbled mess with little to no eloquence and it wouldn t have included any cool sounding words Let s see how I get on now after a good nights sleep Prior to reading this, I had completed Abercrombie s S

    Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths ReviewsAs I ve mentioned in other reviews, Joe Abercrombie is a fantasy author who all my real life friends have raved about for years and insisted that I read From their proselyting, it seemed that my life would not be complete without sampling Lord Grimdark s wares So, in order to save myself from some accursed fate

    So, let s cast the characters for our novel, shall we Of course, boss, Mr Abercrombie, sir Where is the run of a mill farmboy with a great destination I m afraid he ran of the mill, met a goblin Now rots in a ditch Oh, how unfortunate Indeed, boss, indeed Let s see What about the maiden fair in need of rescue from a dragon Apparently she ate the dragon Now she

    gritty visceral unapologetic and darkly humorous everything you could ever want from a story like this.its safe to say this is primarily a character driven novel, which is fine by me because every character is brilliant it has quite the ensemble cast each has their own secrets, histories, and quirks making it quite the experience getting to know each of them not a

    So this was one of my most anticipated reads Grimdark fans from all over offer up this book as one of the best in the genre, and so that understandably rocketed my expectations And this was not a bad book by any means In fact, as soon as I started I was told multiple times that I could liken the first book of The First Law series to a giant prologue, and I think that

    Joe Abercrombie certainly knows how to write some disturbingly likable characters In any other book the protagonists would be the bad guys Logan Ninefingers is a brutal warrior who goes into insane blood rages where he kills anything, and everything, near him Yet, weirdly, he is also a wise and sensitive soul San Dan Glocka is a torturer whose heart is pure malice, yet so
