This might just be Squidapus' favorite Abercrombie book now. I could barely pull his tentacles off this tale of a fallen viking prince seeking revenge. This is Abercrombie's greyest book to date; none are all good or bad. He does an amazing job with keeping things grim without stepping into overbearing. Yarvi is a great character who is put into a horrible situation and has reactions you can understand even if it hurts seeing him harden himself.
