A Little Hatred
A Little Hatred | Joe Abercrombie
6 posts | 2 read | 9 to read
From New York Times bestselling author Joe Abercrombie comes the first book in a new blockbuster fantasy trilogy where the age of the machine dawns, but the age of magic refuses to die. The chimneys of industry rise over Adua and the world seethes with new opportunities. But old scores run deep as ever. On the blood-soaked borders of Angland, Leo dan Brock struggles to win fame on the battlefield, and defeat the marauding armies of Stour Nightfall. He hopes for help from the crown. But King Jezal's son, the feckless Prince Orso, is a man who specializes in disappointments. Savine dan Glokta - socialite, investor, and daughter of the most feared man in the Union - plans to claw her way to the top of the slag-heap of society by any means necessary. But the slums boil over with a rage that all the money in the world cannot control. The age of the machine dawns, but the age of magic refuses to die. With the help of the mad hillwoman Isern-i-Phail, Rikke struggles to control the blessing, or the curse, of the Long Eye. Glimpsing the future is one thing, but with the guiding hand of the First of the Magi still pulling the strings, changing it will be quite another...

Well. The last readathon I tried was for @MrBook #litsypartyofone a couple weeks ago. I dutifully started my timer and my book. Read my first book and then got an unexpected family visit. I think by the time I remembered the timer it was about two days later. However this time I am stuck in bed in a cast so I‘ll try it again! (Never give up!). Thanks to hosts @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 and @jb72

gradcat Have you broken your leg? Or is that a sock? I can‘t tell for sure, but that looks like a cast to me. So sorry if it is...but the good news? Maybe you‘ll have lots of down time for the Readathon. Good luck, and I hope it doesn‘t hurt too much! ♥️♥️♥️ 3w
Cinfhen Hi!!!!! How are you holding up???? Email me.....I‘m waiting for the rest of the story 😘😘 3w

Emilymdxn Hope you‘re doing okay! I hope the time resting helps your recovery, and books and Litsy keep you entertained 3w
Bklover @gradcat @squirrelbrain @emilymdxm I had surgery on both feet last Friday. Only the right foot is in a cast- have to keep weight off it for eight weeks. Not much pain and my kids are waiting on me hand and foot. I‘m kind of assuming I will tire of this soon. Looking forward to lots of reading time for now though 😘😘 3w
Bklover @Cinfhen I haven‘t forgotten! I‘ll be writing you soon. Have fun this weekend with your roommate! (edited) 3w
gradcat @Bklover I‘m sorry for you—two feet at the same time—wow! But please try to enjoy the “my kids are waiting on me hand and foot”—you deserve it! ♥️👍😅 3w
EadieB @Bklover Sorry you are laid up in bed after surgery but the good thing is lots of reading time and your children waiting on you. But like you said 'could get old.' At least pain isn't too bad as pain could be very uncomfortable. Can you use crutches? Can you sit up in a chair when you get tired of laying down? 3w
Copwithabook That seriously sucks- glad you can see that very bright silver lining of reading time! 3w
MamaGina I completely empathize—I broke my leg earlier this year and was non-weight bearing for three months, it‘s not fun at all! I wish you fast & complete healing 🤓 3w
Bklover @EadieB I have a knee scooter and a wheelchair. Both from a neighbor. The wheelchair is difficult because my leg hangs down which causes pain. I LOVE my knee scooter (google it if you haven‘t seen one!). I‘m really meant to keep it elevated pretty much all the time though so I‘ll have lots of bed-time! I had a bone fusion in my right foot which takes quite a while to heal. I am sooooo glad it‘s done though!😘 3w
Bklover @Copwithabook Thanks for the kind words. We‘ll see how optimistic I‘m feeling in a few weeks! I have a bed full of pets keeping me company though❤️😉 3w
Bklover @MamaGina Oh no! So glad you have healed up! Thanks for the kindness- this is a very good time to have Litsy friends to keep me company!💗 3w
jb72 Oh no! Wishing you fast healing vibes! Years ago I broke my leg and dislocated my ankle. Two surgeries later I have a plate in my leg. The whole flat on back got old quick. I‘m so glad you are getting some read time in this weekend! 3w
Bklover @jb72 Thanks! I can‘t imagine what non-readers do! 3w
Andrew65 Sorry to hear about the cast. Good luck with the Readathon. 😊 3w
EadieB @Bklover Probably watch TV. 3w

🎧 Billed as book one in The Age of Madness trilogy but I believe it‘s all set in one world that includes two previous trilogies. This is not YA. The F word shows up within the first 30 seconds, there‘s significant blood, sex, violence and adult situations but it caught me as I love humor and there is a good collection of laughs! Awesome in audio as you hear the sarcasm! It feels a bit DND but maybe that‘s just me. I enjoyed it. A lot. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/3

Bklover Just started this one- enjoying it so far! 3w
Twainy I really enjoyed the audiobook! 3w
