Buckle your seat belts for this one -- Robin Hobb A Little Hatred is Abercrombie at his very best: witty, wise, and whip-smart. Masterfully plotted, the story begins at a simmer and soon boils over. Best of all, however, is the sprawling cast of morally ambiguous, foul-mouthed, sex-crazed, arse-scratching, unwittingly heroic characters, who are written with the stark and savage honesty Joe does so well. I had high hopes for this book, and it exceeded them all. * Nicholas Eames, author of KINGS OF THE WYLD * Brutal, unforgiving, and terribly fun. Everything awesome readers have come to expect from Joe Abercrombie. * Brian McClellan, author of SINS OF EMPIRE * Abercrombie squeezes your heart till it matches his beat. No one writes with the seismic scope or primal intensity of Joe Abercrombie * Pierce Brown * Both the magic and the class struggle are subtly handled by Abercrombie, while the humour is delightfully rough. It's a tremendous book, as if Friedrich Engels and Terry Pratchett had agreed to collaborate in rewriting George RR Martin. * MORNING STAR * All told within a complex, fascinating plot that will keep you up long after bed time. The perfect escape from the topsy- turvy world that we're living in at the moment. -- Natasha Harding * The Sun * He writes of slum life with graphic realism, and his rendering of battle scenes is to die for. -- Eric Brown * The Guardian * The intricately woven story never slackens its merciless grip as we follow our heroes and heroines through battlefields, boardrooms and bedrooms to their destinies - deserved and undeserved alike. * Daily Mail * Gripping and intriguing. * STARBURST MAGAZINE * Abercrombie has created one of the most magnificent, unforgettable casts of characters to ever grace the pages of a fantasy book * Grimdark Magazine * This book is exceptional. Indisputably, spectacularly, criminally good. Clever, funny, and packed with cutting commentary, it's well worth the wait. * FANTASY BOOK REVIEW * Joe Abercrombie's powerful voice raises the bar in any literary genre. Fantasy fans are beyond fortunate he chose this one * Myke Cole, author of The Armored Saint * Rife with emotion with wit to spare, both honed to an effortlessly fine edge.

They pulled me in. Well-developed world. Unique, compelling characters. I like them so much that when I got to the end of the second book and found out the third book wasn't going to be out in the US for another three months, I experienced a fit or rage, then a fit of depression, then I ate some lunch and had a bit of lay down' -- Patrick Rothfuss on the First Law trilogy A tale of brute force and subtle magic set in a world on the cusp of an industrial revolution . . . a vivid and jolting tale. * ROBIN HOBB * Goddamn magnificent * Adrian Tchaikovsky * Highly recommended - a funny, finely-wrought, terrifically energetic work of high fantasy.
