    Inhaltsangabe

    Springtime in Styria. And that means war. There have been nineteen years of blood. The ruthless Grand Duke Orso is locked in a vicious struggle with the squabbling League of Eight, and between them they have bled the land white.

    While armies march, heads roll and cities burn, behind the scenes bankers, priests and older, darker powers play a deadly game to choose who will be king. War may be hell but for Monza Murcatto, the Snake of Talins, the most feared and famous mercenary in Duke Orso's employ, it's a damn good way of making money too. Her victories have made her popular - a shade too popular for her employer's taste.

    Betrayed, thrown down a mountain and left for dead, Murcatto's reward is a broken body and a burning hunger for vengeance. Whatever the cost, seven men must die.

    Defenatly worth a hearthrough

    Full of dark sarcatic humour and wisdom. Betrayl is only a handspan away and not one charakter is onedimantionel.

    Simply glorious

    Wie hat Ihnen Steven Pacey als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

    Steven Pacey is the most amazing narrator I have ever had the great pleasure listening to. He effortlessly gives unique voices to dozens of characters, finds the perfect pitch for every mood in the book and adds immense additional quality to any book he narrates. I am indebted to him for countless hours of great entertainment!

    Amazing Novel

    I really loved this novel! I've got more than once hitted by surprise while I listened to this amazing story. Full of humour, action and most importantly understandable "real" protagonists, is this grimdark fantasy world a wonderful experience l enjoyed so much. The speaker made this novel even more lively. His different tunes of voice and power is remarkable.

    Still one of the best books I've ever enjoyed.

    Perfect Characters, flawed but consistent humans in a world that doesn't care,
    Perfect Worldbuilding and a perfect arc.
    The overall war of the wizards and their sideshow machinations as beautifully incorporated as the characters arcs all going full circle.
    The way the story twists your perception bit by terrible bit... And the meta position at the end... Do you think you deserve better?
    Damn I love abercrombie.
    And 4 books into my third run of all hsibworks, this is still my favorite book.
    Shivers my second most favorite character arc just after thorn bathu.
    Also he is as of now, the only one in all of his books.
    Th am you Joe for writing like that
    Thank you mister pacey for being such a great narrator.

    not as strong as the First Law Trilogie.

    Its brutal and dark - just as I like it - but it doesn't reach the quality of the first 3 books. still a good listen. The narration is top of the line still

    Entertaining enough

    i personally don't enjoy stories where everybody is or atleast acts an asshole. towards the end, complexity in the characters started to filter out. but the first half felt like a slog of needlessly visceral scenes and dialogue.
    But it managed to amuse me now and then, even if it didn't catch my interest until the end.

    Nowhere near as good as The First Law

    This book made me realize, there _is_ such a thing as too grimdark. At least for me. I'm saying this as someone who loved The First Law trilogy. I even (maybe especially) loved it's ending. Best Served Cold however, is something else entirely. The characters are all (with possible exception of one) very unlikeable. There's not much meat to the plot either.

    On the plus side, I should say the characters are (as you might expect from Joe Abercrombie) fleshed out remarkably well even though they're unlikable, and that's probably the only thing that made reading the book bearable for me.

    All in all, if you're thinking about reading (listening to) this because you liked The First Law, there is a good chance you'll be disappointed.

    His best so far

    Der Autor versteht es eine realistische, düstere Atmosphäre aufzubauen in der sich seine Charaktere schlüssig und gut gezeichnet bewegen. Auch wenn die Storyline um die Thematik "Rache" nun nicht gerade das Rad neu erfindet, so macht sie dennoch Spaß.

    Steven Pacey is great as always.

    I want to begin by saying that Steven Pacey is the greatest narrator I've heard so far. The book was in my opinion somewhere below excellent.
