The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie.
The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie. An interesting twist on the
'reinvented Middle Ages' Sword and Sorcery genre. Very dark, with
some passages that you don't want to read while eating, but also very
quirky, humorous, and with believable characters. Shown from the
points of view of individual characters, its still well-written enough
not to be confusing. The first book in a trilogy.
