Great female protagonist - strong lead. I'm a sucker for flawed characters right now and Joe Abercrombie writes the best of them. The story is hard, gritty, gruesome, full of twists and turns and is probably one of the strongest revenge novels I've ever read. You don't have to read the trilogy first, but it helps to fill in some backstory.

I'm torn between choosing Richard Morgan or Joe Abercrombie as the best dark fantasy writer out there right now. Joe has more novels out, but Richard made an amazing showing with the Steel Remains.
