did not like it
bookshelves: fantasy

** spoiler alert ** Actually I really liked this book. So much so that I read the second book and then waited for the third.

And the bad guys won! After thousands of pages my payoff was the bad guys win and the good guys die. Honor is worthless. Just look out for yourself.

These are the "hip and cool" books that "turn fantasy on its head". BullS^&t.

These books are well written. I applaud Abercrombie for his craft, but his message is just not one I support on any level.
