From official release/information:
A very impressive debut fantasy by British author Joe Abercrombie. Reviewed this issue and highly recommended.
"Murderous conspiracies rise to the surface, old scores are ready to be settled, and the line between hero and villain is sharp enough to draw blood. Unpredictable, compelling, wickedly funny and packed with unforgettable characters, The Blade Itself is noir fantasy on the cutting edge." - cover blurb.
