She’d worked over the sums, and thirty-three would leave something towards Ro’s books once they’d fixed the barn’s leaking roof and got a breeding pair of pigs to replace the ones they’d butchered in winter. Maybe they could stretch to some seed too, try and nurse the cabbage patch back to health. She was grinning, thinking on what she could put right with that money, what she could build.

Talk about Red Country


Trex
Well there it is. I've read all of Joe's First Law books. Well, almost. I know that there's a short story collection floating around out there, the aptly titled 'Sharp Ends'. I'm going to save that one for some hellish Winter night when I really need some Abercrombie. With these three stand alone books (Best Served Cold, The Heroes, Red Country) Joe has solidified his place on my favorites shelf. He is an incredible Fantasy author, now I just need to pick which book to put on there. Regardless of which I choose, it will stand as a representative for his work on the First Law as a whole.

Now, Red Country. Fantastic book. Just great. A fun and wicked romp across the World of the First Law's 'Wild West'. New character fill the Near Country and are accentuated by the return of some old ones, one in particular that I was immensely pleased to see (though this character is never referred to by their true name, you'd have to be blind to misunderstand who we're dealing with here).

Joe's strength has always been his characters, this book is no different. They occupy a bleak world, filled with some nasty folks, and they deal with it the best they can. Sometimes you realize the characters you thought were the 'good guys' have been the nasty ones all along. Joe is good at that. He's good at bringing even the smallest character, with the least screen time, to life. It leaves things with a sort of open feel, like he could dive back in and write more about any section of the world and any small character he'd like at any time. Speaking of which, I've recently been made aware that Joe is hard at work on another trilogy set in the First Law World, further down the timeline. That news is the cherry on top of this read, and I'm eagerly awaiting it.

It's like a spaghetti western with swords.

Story:
After returning home to her farm, headstrong Shy South and her hulking but sullen step-father Lamb, discover that they've been raided. With their farm burned to the ground, and the children missing, they set off to hunt down the kidnappers. The party eventually teams up with a wagon train of desperate prospectors as they trek across the plains searching for gold in them thar hills. Their adventure takes them across a wild frontier full of natives, mercenaries, the inquisition, and betrayers. A few characters from the First Law Trilogy return and it's great to see them. There are some twists and turns and people get what's coming to them.

World:
The world is similar to the old west, but the characters carry swords instead of guns. Gunpowder and a cannon type weapon are introduced in this book and there's no magic. With the themes of natives, a gold rush, wagon trains, a small dirt-water town, it feels more like a western, than a fantasy book.

Characters:
Shy South is hard as nails, enjoys a good drink, and can negotiate a banker to tears.
Temple is a man of many talents, but his cowardice holds him back.
Dab Sweet is a legendary scout far past his prime.
Lamb is a shy giant of a man, who avoids confrontation... until pushed too far.
The characters are all fun to read and they play off of each other with witty dialogue and dry humor.

Writing Style:
Joe Abercrombie is known for his gritty writing style, bloody violence, dark humor, and not-so happy endings. Everything in this book is dirty, dusty, covered in puke, blood, or excrement. But that's just the way it is on the frontier. The action is extremely violent and bloody. The humor is dry. And at times, the story takes an unexpected turn away from things that are predictable and climactic, to throw the reader a curve ball.

Action:
This book has less action than the other Abercrombie books, but there are raids, horseback battles, brawls, duels, and skirmishes. The action is bloody and there's a bit of gore. It's well written and you feel the characters struggle, the impact of the blades, and the injuries afterwards.

Maturity: Adult
There's sex, swearing, adult themes, drinking, puking, killing, beating, decapitating, dismembering, and downright ornery characters.

Overall:
This is a very good book. The pace is uneven, but when there isn't any action, it's enjoyable to read the characters interacting with each other. The action is violent. The dialogue is funny. The humor is dark. The setting is right out of the gold rush. The characters are shockingly ruthless... but true to their motives.

If you enjoyed Joe Abercrombie's books, you'll like this one, even though it's much more western than medieval fantasy. If you haven't read the First Law Trilogy, just know that you'll get a lot more out of this book if you read that first. It's not completely necessary, but it helps!

The front of the book has a quote saying "Abercrombie at the top of his game." I'd have to agree with that. At this point if you are looking into this book, you probably have read the others in the First Law world. If you wonder if he loses steam or talent at all, don't worry. Like the quote says he's at his best.

The book focuses around some new characters: Shy, Lamb and Temple. Shy South has some skeletons in her closet but is generally a good person trying to get her brother and sister back and will travel into the Far Country to get them back. Lamb is like her step dad and Shy will be the first to tell you that he's a coward but Lamb goes along on the trip being that he promised their mom that he would look after them. Temple is a man who's worked a bit of everything most recently being lawyer and he has a nagging conscience. There are some familiar characters that are featured in the book such as Cosca, Friendly, Shivers and yes the return of Logen Ninefingers!

This book is just great. Its in the same world but you can defiantly forget and think its a western at times. It has a gang of outlaws, bar fights, a caravan of wagons across the plains, savage natives called Ghosts, miners looking for a fortune of gold, and bloody disputes in a boom town.

You can expect the same in this book that you find in Abercrombie's other books: a great story, interesting and flawed characters, surprises, a world that's not black and white but grey and of course bloody great action. Oh and once again, the return of The Bloody Nine himself !!!

So again if you have any doubts about this book, you don't need to worry. Its as good as his other books or better.
