Joe Abercrombie is a master of the genre
When it comes to blood and guts in fantasy - there's nobody better versed than Joe Abercrombie.
The Trouble with Peace is a magnificent read that will leave fans begging for more
The first book in this new series was great. This is even better...one of my books of the year
It's smart. It's witty. This is an absolutely top-notch work of fantasy
Memorable characters, spellbindingly ferocious action, twists that scare a pretzel and gallows humour to die for, The Trouble with Peace mauls expectations to serve up a sublime sequel that's even better than it's showstopper of a predecessor
Clever dialogue and sharp humour...Without a doubt one of my favourite books of 2020
The Trouble with Peace is effortlessly brilliant. Joe Abercrombie has created something truly amazing and I can't wait for the next book
I thoroughly enjoyed this new addition to the Abercrombie canon - lots of action as always, with a wry humour and plenty of intrigue
Brutal, grim, and often so very compelling, The Trouble with Peace is a totally unputdownable grimdark story
I had insanely high expectations for the sequel. But The Trouble with Peace met pretty much all of them.
My heart raced, my jaw dropped multiple times and I was left astonished! Say one thing for Abercrombie, say his books should come with a health warning!
Fabulously written, nail-bitingly plotted, it lays bare the best and worst of human nature.
A breakneck- speed fantasy book that brings in all the elements of a political thriller, action romp and reflective memoir. Job well done.
Nimble, brutal and hilarious, it's Abercrombie leading us into bloody war, so all bets are off!
