Joe Abercrombieâ€™s first novel, The Blade Itself slipped under my radar for a long time. Somehow I had missed a novel that many named 2006â€™s best debut novel. I rectified this mistake recently by tracking down the novel and proceeding to read it, love it and write it a rather glowing review.
So it was with much excitement that I picked up the sequel, the recently published Before They Are Hanged, eagerly looking to dive back into Abercrombieâ€™s world. A world full of despicable, charming, dastardly, funny and downright evil characters. Before They Are Hanged, and especially those aforementioned characters, didnâ€™t let me down… too much.
