Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid twisted way to end for some twisted characters It was a bit rushed in the end but I felt it was a good conclusion to the series and does the characters justice in that, they really don't get any justice at all...poor Jezel...poor Logan

Editorial Reviews

'This grim and vivid sequel to THE BLADE ITSELF transcends its middle volume status, keeping the reader engaged with complicated plotting and intriguing character development. Abercrombie leavens the bloody action with moments of dark humor, developing a story suffused with a rich understanding of human darkness and light'-PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY on BEFORE THEY ARE HANGED
