Book Review — The Blade Itself (First Law #1) by Joe Abercrombie

The Blade Itself (The First Law, #1)The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oops, I read this trilogy too quickly to review each volume properly, so check out The Last Argument of Kings for my thoughts on the whole thing.

I thought there was a little something off with The Blade Itself, and it didn’t make me excited like I had hoped. The pacing and tension wasn’t quite right, and some of the characters seemed more caricatures than anything.

Inquisitor Glotka saved the day.
