Re: Before They are Hanged - Joe Abercrombie
It's a terrific book, and a terrific series. You're in for a treat. I'm reading the third one (Last Argument of Kings) myself, and it's all good.
By the way, which cover do you have? The original paperbacks, with the parchment-like cover, are awesome. Best looking cover of any book I own. Unfortunately, I was only able to find it for The Blade Itself; I have the other two in Mass Market Paperback, which aren't nearly as attractive.
