Before They are Hanged (The First Law book 2) Review


War has started between the major powers of the Circle of the World.

Midderland’s Union of Adua has sent its regiment north to Angland to battle King Bethod’s army. The nobles see this war as just a game for glory, but they will learn just how tough the Northmen truly are. Not forgetting the land to the south, Superior Glokta is sent to the city of Dagoska in Gurkhul to defend it from the gathering Gurkish forces. There he will experience, for the second time, the might of emperor Uthman-ul-Dosht, but not before finding the traitor from within the city. And the First of the Magi leads a group of adventurers to the edge of the World to break the First Law.

Before They are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie continues the First Law trilogy with great settings, long journeys, lots of action, and a few awesome spells thrown in for good measure, making it even more enjoyable than the first book. Continue reading
