Joe Abercrombie is a master of the genre * Lev Grossman *
When it comes to blood and guts in fantasy - there's nobody better versed than Joe Abercrombie. * The Sun *
The books are good, really good. 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
The Trouble with Peace is a magnificent read that will leave fans begging for more * Starburst *
The first book in this new series was great. This is even better...one of my books of the year * SFF World *
It's smart. It's witty. This is an absolutely top-notch work of fantasy * Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews *
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 * Novel Notions *
Clever dialogue and sharp humour...Without a doubt one of my favourite books of 2020 * The Bibliophile Chronicles *
The Trouble with Peace is effortlessly brilliant. Joe Abercrombie has created something truly amazing and I can't wait for the next book * The Bookbeard's Blog *
I thoroughly enjoyed this new addition to the Abercrombie canon - lots of action as always, with a wry humour and plenty of intrigue * Ramblingmads *
Brutal, grim, and often so very compelling, The Trouble with Peace is a totally unputdownable grimdark story * I Should Read That *
I had insanely high expectations for the sequel. But The Trouble with Peace met pretty much all of them. * The Fantasy Inn *
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! * The Fantasy Hive *
Abercrombie squeezes your heart till it matches his beat. No one writes with the seismic scope or primal intensity of Joe Abercrombie * Pierce Brown *
Brutal, unforgiving, and terribly fun. Everything awesome readers have come to expect from Joe Abercrombie. * Brian McClellan, author of SINS OF EMPIRE *
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 *
Abercrombie continues to do what he does best . . . Buckle your seat belts for this one -- Robin Hobb
