I’ve just discovered Joe Abercrombie‘s trilogy of ‘The First Law’ and read the first two books in a couple of weeks! ‘The Blade Itself’ and ‘Before They Are Hanged’.
Fantastic, bitter fantasy with a twist of dark humour. My sister Harple will devour these. I must remember to hand them over when she stays with us this weekend.
My friend Dan brandished ‘The Sword of Shannara’ at me with a grimace. I could have saved him the money. It’s a blatent plagarisation of J.R.Tolkein and rubbish to boot. I never got past the second chapter it annoyed me so much.
