The Heroes (Compact Disc)

Special Order

Staff Reviews

Some fantasy novels are filled with elves, unicorns, and magical talking tableware. This is not one of those novels! Abercrombie's book is like a kick in the gut to stale, old fantasy and brings the swords back into the swords and sorcery genre.



Joe Abercrombie, the author of the epic First Law trilogy, returns with a tale about violence and ambition, gruesome deaths and betrayals, and the brutal truth that no plan survives contact with the enemy.

Praise For…

"The Heroes is Joe Abercrombie doing what he does best but better than ever before: gritty, violent, morally ambiguous and darkly funny fantasy with a streak of intelligent cynicism." ---The Wertzone
