Inhaltsangabe

The end is coming.

Logen Ninefingers might only have one more fight in him, but it’s going to be a big one. Battle rages across the North, the King of the Northmen still stands firm and there’s only one man who can top him. His oldest friend and his oldest enemy. It’s time for the Bloody-Nine to come home.

With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war - a secret struggle in which no-one is safe and no-one can be trusted. His days with a sword are far behind him. It’s a good thing blackmail, threats, and torture still work well enough.

Jezal dan Luthar has decided that winning glory is too painful, and turned his back on soldiering for a life with the woman he loves. But love can be painful too, and glory has a nasty habit of creeping up on someone.

While the King of the Union lies on his death bed, the peasants revolt and the nobles scramble to steal his crown. No-one believes that the shadow of war is falling across the very heart of the Union. The First of the Magi has a plan to save the world. But there are risks. There is no risk more terrible, after all, than to break the First Law.

great story, brilliantly told

Another great Book of the series. Love the dark humour and that the characters can not be simply put in the good/bad category. If you like a character or not, depends on how much and what kind of bad side of a personality you can take and still sympathise. And Steven Pacey did a great job again.

Steven Pacey

Steven Pacey is the best narrator I've ever heard to this day. Great work and many thanks to the team behind the First Law audiobooks.

And so it ends

The trilogy comes slowly to an end with some unhappy surprises. Partly no fun to hear, but still gripping.

my all-time favourite

This is by far the best narrator performance I've ever heard. Incredible how colourful Pacey brings all the different characters to life.
The story is the best book of Abercrombie in my opinion. Very well developed and in the end all threads come together.
I love the lack of heroes the biting sarcasm and the deep black humour.
Everytime I'm out of a good audio book I fall back on this one and listen to it all over again. Not one minute wasted.

Big Bang with a Sour Taste

Abercrombie finished the trilogy with a big bang. Fierce battles, fights full of blood and gore, vicious intrigues, treason and dark magic are the ingredients of the dramatic finale. The story is action packed and takes a couple of surprising twists and turns, but sometimes it felt wrong to me, too many unanswered questions and inconsistencies.

The war in the North leads to dramatic scenes. Marshal West, Logan and his friends show incredible bravery in the fight against Bethod, king of the north. There is a culminating duel between Bethod's champion, the Feared and Logan, which will decide the outcome of the war, but after the fighting is done, the story fades away and leaves a lot of open ends.

The war against the Gurkish invasion brings the Union close to extinction. Glokta pulls the strings behind the scene and uses all his skills and resources to safe the union, but in the end its fate is unclear as ever. The prophet and his man-eaters took a blow, but might return again.

In general Abercrombie's heroes are a prickly lot.
Logan is a great fighter, but his uncontrolled violence and rage make him a threat for enemy and friends alike.
Bayaz becomes more and more sinister and his arrogance and lust for power become more and more obvious and his motives more and more dubious, the gap to the dark forces becomes very narrow.
Ferro, the vicious female fighter simply fades out of the story. The little romance between Logan and her takes a very disappointing ending as well.
Jezal, who showed some promise in the second book, remains a coward and fool
Glokta is the only positive surprise. Regardless of his repulsive exterior and the cruelty, he shows as inquisitor, he becomes or is the only one, who wants to do the right thing. He even shows compassion and believe it or not, even love.

The end of the trilogy left me a little bit frustrated. In some parts the closure seemed to be forced, in others simply unfinished. All in all, the last book is the weakest of the trilogy.
