The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart by Jesse Bullington

The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart by Jesse Bullington is many things. It is profane, disgusting, perverted, stomach turning, rude, dark, funny, and I loved it. In the same vein of Joe Abercrombie’s Best Served Cold the reader is given a “hero” that isn’t the characteristic likable do-gooder we are all used to. In Jes...

Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs (Mercy Thompson)

Mechanic Mercy Thompson is woken at 3am by a vampire calling in a favour. He has to deliver a message to a fellow undead and needs a witness that won't be notic...

Let me start by making one thing very clear: Joe Abercrombie has a very special gift with words. He is capable of writing beautifully vivid or dangerously horrific scenes with the same quality. I enjoyed ‘The Blade Itself’ well enough, though sadly not enough to continue reading the following two books in the trilogy (“one day&...
