DESCRIPTION

Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and increasingly bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer extraordinaire, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain, shallow, selfish and self-obsessed, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men. And Logen Ninefingers, an infamous warrior with a bloody past, is about to wake up in a hole in the snow with plans to settle a blood feud with Bethod, the new King of the Northmen, once and for all - ideally by running away from it. But as he's discovering, old habits die really, really hard indeed......especially when Bayaz gets involved. A bald old man with a terrible temper and a pathetic assistant, he could be the First of the Magi, he could be a spectacular fraud, but whatever he is, he's about to make the lives of Glotka, Jezal and Logen a whole lot more difficult...

The world of Joe Abercrombie it told in superb detail, where multiple cultures are ... "The Blade Itself is a page-turner powered by a combination of gritty, fast-paced action and juicy doses of cynicism." Edge Magazine "It's funny, violent, and brilliant. Imagine if Quentin Tarantino wrote a sword & sorcery novel." Unshelved Book Club "Fast-paced, deeply sarcastic, spitefully witty and well observed.

During a break between jobs he began writing The Blade Itself in 2002, completing it in 2004. Abercrombie lives in Bath, Somerset with his wife and three children.
