Best Served Coldby Joe Abercrombie
Synopses & Reviews
War may be hell, but for Monza Murcatto, a solider of considerable fortune; it's a damn good way of making money too. Her victories have made her popular - a shade too popular for her employer's taste. Betrayed and left for dead, Murcatto's reward is a broken body and a burning hunger for vengeance.
Whatever the cost, seven men must die.
Joe Abercrombie takes the grand tradition of high fantasy literature and drags it down into the gutter, in the best possible way. --- Time
Abercrombie is both fiendishly inventive and solidly convincing, especially when sprinkling his appallingly vivid combat scenes with humor so dark that it's almost ultraviolet. --- Publishers Weekly
A satisfyingly brutal fantasy quest. BEST SERVED COLD? Modern fantasy doesn't get much hotter than this. --- Dave Bradley, SFX
Abercrombie has written the finest epic fantasy trilogy in recent memory. He's one writer that no one should miss. --- Junot Diaz on The First Law Trilogy
After Grand Duke Orso decides to dispose of sister-and-brother mercenaries Monzcarro and Benna Mercatto, Monzcarro narrowly avoids her doom, and forges a gruesome plan of revenge.
