Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“No one writes with the seismic scope or primal intensity of Joe Abercrombie.” Pierce Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Abercrombie’s work is dark and gritty and filled with black humor and grim observations about human nature.” Forbes
“Digs into the moments where lives are changed, often for the worse, and then sets his characters on paths that are only going to get tougher before they get better…Military grim-dark fantasy at its finest. Amazon.com
“Abercrombie expands the First Law fantasy universe with a new epic saga of war and power set in a world where the industrial age is rising…With expert craft, Abercrombie lays the groundwork for another thrilling trilogy.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“In this brutal fantasy…Abercrombie unerringly juggles a large cast of multifaceted, morally ambiguous characters…This unflinching depiction of human nature becomes slow-motion tragedy on a grand scale, shot through with moments of humor, excitement, and hope.” Booklist (starred review)
“Abercrombie, a longtime favorite of fantasy readers known for page-turning and immersive reads, begins a brand-new dark fantasy series with A Little Hatred…This is the start of something awesome.” Kirkus Reviews
