This is the first book in the trilogy and it's the lowest price it has ever been. The other books are still full price.
The First Law series by Joe Abercrombie are among the highest rated fantasy books released in the last years. The full series consists of a trilogy, three stand-alone novels and a number of novellas set in the same world.
I bought this as it is said to appeal to fans of 'A Song of Ice and Fire'/'Games of Thrones'. Expect character-driven fantasy, morally ambiguous characters and graphic action scenes.
