Description

Introducing a cast of unforgettable new characters, A LITTLE HATRED is the start of a brand new trilogy set in the world of the First Law which will have you gripped from the very start . . .

War. Politics. Revolution.
The Age of Madness has arrived . . .

The chimneys of industry rise over Adua and the world seethes with new opportunities. But old scores run deep as ever.

On the blood-soaked borders of Angland, Leo dan Brock struggles to win fame on the battlefield, and defeat the marauding armies of Stour Nightfall. He hopes for help from the crown. But King Jezal’s son, the feckless Prince Orso, is a man who specialises in disappointments.

Savine dan Glokta – socialite, investor, and daughter of the most feared man in the Union – plans to claw her way to the top of the slag-heap of society by any means necessary. But the slums boil over with a rage that all the money in the world cannot control.

The age of the machine dawns, but the age of magic refuses to die. With the help of the mad hillwoman Isern-i-Phail, Rikke struggles to control the blessing, or the curse, of the Long Eye. Glimpsing the future is one thing, but with the guiding hand of the First of the Magi still pulling the strings, changing it will be quite another . . .

Publisher Review

Abercrombie continues to do what he does best . . . Buckle your seat belts for this one -- Robin Hobb A Little Hatred is Abercrombie at his very best: witty, wise, and whip-smart. Masterfully plotted, the story begins at a simmer and soon boils over. Best of all, however, is the sprawling cast of morally ambiguous, foul-mouthed, sex-crazed, arse-scratching, unwittingly heroic characters, who are written with the stark and savage honesty Joe does so well. I had high hopes for this book, and it exceeded them all. * Nicholas Eames, author of KINGS OF THE WYLD * Brutal, unforgiving, and terribly fun. Everything awesome readers have come to expect from Joe Abercrombie. * Brian McClellan, author of SINS OF EMPIRE * Abercrombie squeezes your heart till it matches his beat. No one writes with the seismic scope or primal intensity of Joe Abercrombie * Pierce Brown * Witty, bloody and fun. * NICHOLAS EAMES * The books are good, really good. They pulled me in. Well-developed world. Unique, compelling characters. I like them so much that when I got to the end of the second book and found out the third book wasn't going to be out in the US for another three months, I experienced a fit or rage, then a fit of depression, then I ate some lunch and had a bit of lay down' -- Patrick Rothfuss on the First Law trilogy A tale of brute force and subtle magic set in a world on the cusp of an industrial revolution . . . a vivid and jolting tale. * ROBIN HOBB * Highly recommended - a funny, finely-wrought, terrifically energetic work of high fantasy. Seek it out -- Joe Hill
