Joe Abercrombie's The First Law: The Blade Itself #2

Barbarian Logen Ninefingers is struggling to stay alive in the barren and lawless North, while Inquisitor Glokta is struggling to enforce the law in the corrupt heart of civilisation. Captain Jezal dan Luthar, meanwhile, is struggling to maintain his interest in the yearly fencing Contest, win the highest position with the least quantity of work, and keep his hands off his best friend's unconventional sister...

The Blade Itself is the first novel in Joe Abercrombie's The First Law trilogy. It combines the best of fantasy -- adventure, mystery, magic, and an epic scale -- with realism, cynicism, visceral action, plenty of surprises, a focus on vivid characters, and a heavy dose of black humour. Murderous conspiracies rise to the surface, old scores are ready to be settled, bloody battles will be won and lost, and the line between hero and villain is sharp enough to draw blood. Unpredictable, compelling, and wickedly funny, The First Law is noir fantasy with a real cutting edge.
