This is supposed to be Abercrombie for the young adult market. Well this "older adult" is quite happy with it too!
Not quite as gritty as the First Law Trilogy, but equally engaging and raw, and still enough blood and guts to satisfy an Abercrombie fan.
Roll on book 2......

As an enthusiastic listener to Joe Abercrombie's stories I was sadly disappointed by this one. The story is quite 'thin' and the characters largely a rehash of the ones you find in his other books. Despite that I am hopeful that it is an opening for a much better story line as the series proceeds. The narration, whilst good, is not as captivating as the narration in his other audio works by (I think) Stephen Pacey.

Abercrombie doesn't disappoint. Good story, if a bit rudimentary. The speak is not great. But ok.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
It was a good story, and i would like hear the rest of the shattered see novels. Yes time well spent!
Would you be willing to try another one of Ben Elliot’s performances?
Not really, i thought he was dead pan and missed some of Joe Abercrombies humor
