Read full description of the books:



The First Law Trilogy probably ranks in my top five debut trilogies of all time. Joe Abercrombie hits the ground running-- this series is nowhere near novice level. It's slick, dark, wonderfully cynical, and has some of the best bash-you-in-the-face fight scenes I have ever read.

The plot is nothing original, mind you, but the characterization definitely is. Unlike much of the Sword and Sorcery fantasy, Abercrombie's characters are deeply personal for the ultimate reason that they are almost always completely self-absorbed. While Jezal, Glokta, Ninefingers and the rest are caught up in plots concerning the destruction/creation/start/end of the the republic/the universe/world as they know it, there is no worrying about saving the world in these novels. There is not much compassion, and Abercrombie disposes of pretty feelings like heroism and self-sacrifice altogether. Even better, he does away with all the black-and-white morality and gives us nothing but wonderful, shifting, twisted shades of gray.

Plot does get a little draggy and unfocused near the middle, but by that time I was so invested in the characters to care. Besides, Abercrombie ends the entire thing by spectacularly defying my expectations and going out with a bang (MILD SPOILER: or in one character's case, with a spectacular nosedive made even more spectacular by its relationship with the beginning of the series)

If you're sick and tired of noble characters agonizing over how to defeat the Dark Lord, give this one a try.
