Waterstones Says

The Age of Madness trilogy concludes in spectacular style, as riots engulf Abercrombie’s finely wrought world and the Weaver’s ultimate plan comes to chilling fruition.

Concluding the Age of Madness trilogy, The Wisdom of Crowds brings the series which is revolutionising fantasy to its stunning conclusion...

Chaos. Fury. Destruction.

The Great Change is upon us . . .

Some say that to change the world you must first burn it down. Now that belief will be tested in the crucible of revolution: the Breakers and Burners have seized the levers of power, the smoke of riots has replaced the smog of industry, and all must submit to the wisdom of crowds.

With nothing left to lose, Citizen Brock is determined to become a new hero for the new age, while Citizeness Savine must turn her talents from profit to survival before she can claw her way to redemption. Orso will find that when the world is turned upside down, no one is lower than a monarch. And in the bloody North, Rikke and her fragile Protectorate are running out of allies . . . while Black Calder gathers his forces and plots his vengeance.

The banks have fallen, the sun of the Union has been torn down, and in the darkness behind the scenes, the threads of the Weaver's ruthless plan are slowly being drawn together...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Highly recommended - a funny, finely-wrought, terrifically energetic work of high fantasy. Seek it out.' - Joe Hill

'Joe Abercrombie is doing some terrific work.' - George R. R. Martin

'Delightfully twisted and evil.' - The Guardian

'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

'Witty, Bloody and fun.' - Nicholas Eames

'A vivid and jolting tale.' - Robin Hobb

'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

“Wonderfully Dark & Twisted Fantasy”

A satisfying conclusion to both the book & the series. In typical fashion, there is a a strong dose of betrayal, death & intrigue as the story is nicely concluded. I love that there was still some surprises... More

“One of my favourite reads of 2021!”

Reading The Age of Madness trilogy has been an eye-opening experience for me. While I enjoyed The First Law Trilogy and Best Served Cold, those books didn't blow me away. I was hoping that Age of Madness would... More

“A fitting end to a great series”

The Wisdom of Crowds is a thrilling end to a wonderful, yet tragic series of fantasy novels that I have enjoyed from the very start. With a great encompassing cast of characters, political turmoil and intrigue, and... More
