WAR. POLITICS. REVOLUTION.
THE AGE OF MADNESS HAS ARRIVED . . .

'Funny and sardonic, violent and compelling' Guardian

'A tale of brute force and subtle magic on the cusp of an industrial revolution ... Buckle your seat belts for this one' Robin Hobb

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

On the battlefields of the North, the next generation of would-be heroes rushes to make the same bloody mistakes as the last.

While the age of the machine dawns, the age of magic refuses to die. One might glimpse the future, through the curse of the Long Eye, but changing it is another matter altogether.

The chimneys of industry rise, the cities seethe with opportunity, and even kings must kneel before the new power of the banks. But in the slums, anger is brewing, and soon it will boil over with a rage that all the money in the world cannot control . . .

Introducing a cast of unforgettable new characters, A LITTLE HATRED begins a new First Law trilogy which will have you gripped from the very start ...

Anmeldelser

«All told within a complex, fascinating plot that will keep you up long after bed time. The perfect escape from the topsy- turvy world that we're living in at the moment.»

Natasha Harding, The Sun

«Both the magic and the class struggle are subtly handled by Abercrombie, while the humour is delightfully rough. It's a tremendous book, as if Friedrich Engels and Terry Pratchett had agreed to collaborate in rewriting George RR Martin.»

MORNING STAR

«

[it] gives us incipient industrialisation, a refugee crisis, violence, politics and magic, all handled with darkly funny aplomb.

»

Publishers Weekly starred review

«The books are good, really good. They pulled me in. Well-developed world. Unique, compelling characters. I like them so much that when I got to the end of the second book and found out the third book wasn't going to be out in the US for another three months, I experienced a fit or rage, then a fit of depression, then I ate some lunch and had a bit of lay down'»

«The intricately woven story never slackens its merciless grip as we follow our heroes and heroines through battlefields, boardrooms and bedrooms to their destinies - deserved and undeserved alike.»

Daily Mail

«He writes of slum life with graphic realism, and his rendering of battle scenes is to die for.»

The Guardian

«Goddamn magnificent»

Adrian Tchaikovsky

«Abercrombie has created one of the most magnificent, unforgettable casts of characters to ever grace the pages of a fantasy book»

Sam Sykes, author of Seven Blades of Black

«Joe Abercrombie's powerful voice raises the bar in any literary genre. Fantasy fans are beyond fortunate he chose this one»

Myke Cole, author of The Armored Saint
