    Default The First Law Trilogy

    The trilogy is written by Joe Abercromie. The three books are:

    The Blade Itself
    Before they are Hanged
    The last Argument of Kings

    I'm currently reading the third book and I loved the series so far. I strongly recommend it.

    I tried the first one and found the writing to be pretty weak, but maybe it's worth another try. I always thought the covers looked cool.

    Perhaps not the best writing, but I've seen worst. It also took me a little while to get into it, but in the middle of the first book, I was hooked and I could not put it down.

    I would say this series is worth reading just for Inquisitor Glokta. One of the most interesting characters I've ever come across.

    Yes, he is awesome. I'm a big fan of Logen as well.
