Book Synopsis



The second novel in the wildly popular First Law Trilogy from New York Times bestseller Joe Abercrombie.

Superior Glokta has a problem. How do you defend a city surrounded by enemies and riddled with traitors, when your allies can by no means be trusted, and your predecessor vanished without a trace? It's enough to make a torturer want to run -- if he could even walk without a stick.

Northmen have spilled over the border of Angland and are spreading fire and death across the frozen country. Crown Prince Ladisla is poised to drive them back and win undying glory. There is only one problem -- he commands the worst-armed, worst-trained, worst-led army in the world.

And Bayaz, the First of the Magi, is leading a party of bold adventurers on a perilous mission through the ruins of the past. The most hated woman in the South, the most feared man in the North, and the most selfish boy in the Union make a strange alliance, but a deadly one. They might even stand a chance of saving mankind from the Eaters -- if they didn't hate each other quite so much.

Ancient secrets will be uncovered. Bloody battles will be won and lost. Bitter enemies will be forgiven -- but not before they are hanged.

Review Quotes




Lord of the Rings as directed by Kurosawa.--Wall Street Journal on The Heroes

[Abercrombie has] begun breaking his own rules. And succeeding wildly at it. ... Rarely 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

Abercrombie has written the finest epic fantasy trilogy in recent memory. He's one writer that no one should miss.--Junot Diaz

Bloody and relentless.--George R. R. Martin on Best Served Cold

Bold and authentically original.--Jeff VanderMeer on The Blade Itself

Compelling characters, a complex plot, and style to burn.--Strange Horizons on The Blade Itself

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)

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 on The Blade Itself

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

New, fresh, and exciting.--The Independent (UK)

Pointed, driven, and sharp.--Locus on Red Country
