Last Argument of Kings by Joe Abercrombie

944076#3 in The First Law trilogy

The conclusion to an adventurous, inventive, and bloody trilogy with fascinating characters and complex plots.

Say one thing for Joe Abercrombie – he knows how to spin a good yarn. This final book in the First Law trilogy hits all the notes. The odd combination of travelers has returned from the end of the world and now it’s back to regular life which means, of course, war. Final conflict is imminent and Abercrombie builds it detail by bloody, fantastic detail. Most of the main characters continue to develop in interesting and sometimes unexpected ways. The ending is satisfying without being too wrapped up or too open-ended. A thoroughly enjoyable high-action, high-stakes adventure series in which each book is a gem.
