Best Served ColdBest Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


The plot summary makes it sound like a spaghetti western: A mercenary is betrayed, tortured, and left for dead, her brother killed. After a long arduous recovery, the mercenary resolves to take revenge, killing the seven men responsible. However, the novel is set against a dark fantasy world, a bloody, violent world constantly at war. I liked the action and the wicked black humor of the book, and they kept me going through its considerable length and sometime redundancy. However, I never felt really connected or concerned with any of the characters, simply wondering whose death was next or whether it'd be more gruesome than the last. Enjoyable, but probably a bit long.
