  1. The humor in this book was superb. And you are right, he knows how to write. This was crazy polished and so very tight for a first book. I kinda loved it.

  2. "maturesmirk" :) I am liking the term "grimdark" less lately because I see people apply it to books that I don't think really quite fit what I think of as grimdark, it's starting to lose its meaning for me (and in all fairness, not sure it was every well defined to be begin with). This one sounds fun :)

    1. Yeah, what was once a very small (and entirely valid) niche has become a catch-all for anything outside the high/epic fantasy realm.

  3. I want to read this one! Another maturesmirk that comes out tomorrow, Cold Counsel, takes on high-fantasy grimdark from a wholly non-human vantage. Ferocious fun that never takes itself quite too seriously. Let me k ow if you'd be interested, and I can get a copy sent your way.

    1. Cold Counsel, eh? Another one that wasn't on my radar - I need to check that one out.

  4. Ha ha, "maturesmirk" love it! This is actually up next on my pile and after reading your review I'm very excited to get started:-)

  5. I'm liking that 'maturesmirk' handle. Totally going to have that one - I'm a bit tired of the whole grimdark description - too over used by far.
    This book seems to be enjoying excellent reviews. I will definitely add it to my list.

    1. In my book, if you laugh out more than once, it most certainly ain't grimdark. :)

  6. I need something like this in my life right now - just finished The Grey Bastards for SPFBO which was excellent, and something tells me this will be a similar style. I like dark, and I also like that dry sort of humor. And if de Castell has a blurb for this, that's a good sign to me indeed...
