Description

Shy South comes home to her farm to find a blackened shell; her brother and sister have been stolen and she's going to have to return to her bad old ways if she's ever going to see them again. She sets off in grim pursuit with only her cowardly old step-father Lamb for company. But it turns out he's hiding a bloody past of his own. None bloodier.

Their journey will take them across the lawless plains, to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feuds, duels and massacres, and high into unmapped mountains to a reckoning with ancient enemies, and force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune...and a man no one should ever have to trust…

Steven Pacey is best known for his role as Del Tarrant in the third and fourth seasons of the sci-fi series Blake's 7.

He has worked extensively in Theatre, TV and film for many years and in 2009 played opposite Graham Norton in La Cage Aux Folles at London's Playhouse Theatre. He has read numerous audiobooks including Joe Abercrombie's First Law Trilogy, Best Served Cold and The Heroes, and abridged titles by Matthew Reilly.

Brilliant story

Not a big fan of westerns, but this manages to blend the fantasy, betrayal, characters and all else perfectly into the west.

Do not read the review of Luke from Japan

Thank god Luke I read your review after finishing the book. I can't understand why did you include such a spoiler without an alert dude. I would report you, but after voting negatively the button disappeared.
Very good book guys. If you aren't familiar with Mr. Abercrombie's books you should start with the first law trilogy, and after that continue with Best served cold, The heroes and finally Red country.

A pleasant read

Did not expect to see another book by Joe Abercrombie so soon after The Heroes and was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon it by chance. As others have noted, Steven Pacey is a remarkable narrator and would make a mediocre story sound superb. So much the better when the story is a decent one.

There are many parallels in Red Country to the colonization of the Americas, which adds an interesting tone to the story and at least for me, makes it easier to picture the world around the main characters. Storytelling is quite good, albeit the pacing is a little slow, events less grandiose and I would have, personally, enjoyed seeing more tie-ins into the previous books. I'm now more hopeful about hearing more about the fates of many of the old characters, though. There is a long time span between The last argument of kings and Red country along with plenty of characters and events to expand upon, so maybe we shall see another book detailing that time period more closely from the perspective of characters we haven't heard of for a long time.

Only gave the story four stars, because it doesn't quite stand up to the first law trilogy. You just have to be realistic about these things. ;)

My favorite character

I tend not to read books more than once. I’ve read this one twice and now listened to it as well. The Bloody Nine is my favorite literary character. I have now realise that when listening to a book the characters come over according to the emphasis given to them be the narrator, so my experience has been quite different as a result, which I’m still adjusting to. So with that in mind there was only one aspect that niggled me: the narrator when saying the word “grimaced” repeatedly pronounced it as “ghri-maced” as opposed to the only way I’ve ever heard it pronounced, which is “ghri-mussed”. Otherwise I quite enjoyed the experience.

Excellent performance by Steven Pacey.

Another excellent performance by Steven Pacey. Although this is probably my least favorite book in the first law world (not sure why really, it just is), the standard is ser very high.

Best one yet!

Besides the first law trilogy this is without a doubt the best of the books. Glad to hear more about Ninefingers and Cosca, some of my favorites from the first law books. Highly recommend it!

Best yet!

I loved the first three of the First Law books, then I felt Best Served Cold and Heroes didn't quite reach those heights, but then I listened to Red Country. This was my favorite of them all.

Western fantasy - Unforgettable adventure

Whoa, yippiaiyee! At first I wasn't sure if Joe had taken a good turn going this way West with the series. Then I forgot about thinking and could only listen, spellbound as the miles went by and the prairies changed little, like humanity in these series.

Joe Abercrombie tackles the big questions of life with little everyday situations and very human characters. One of the best book series I've read/listened, definitely! Thank you!

Good stuff

Listened the first law series and extra books based on the world created in them and have to say I enjoyed them all. Have to be realistic - the series was the better part and these additional books don't quite get to the same level.

Funny, moving and bloody

I loved this book. Great sequel to the First Law series. All the best things from the original books plus new deep and amusing characters.

interesting but not surprising

a main character is back, that's yeih. other than that it's a cliche western in a fantasy world. it's quite alright, but don't expect too much, if you already read the trilogy first law.

Western im Fantasy-Gewand

Ich liebe den blutigen Neuner, abet das erinnert mich zu sehr an John Wayne oder Karl May.
Wer drauf steht, wird gut bedient.
Die Charaktere sind gut gezeichnet, einzelne Kapitel sehr spannend (und blutrünstig).
Wer Abercrombie bis hier gefolgt ist, sollte den Abschluss dieser Trilogie trotz Westerflair nicht verpassen.
Gelesen ist das Hörbuch super!

Wild West in Fantasysetting

Nur ungern widerspreche ich George R. R. Martin, aber ich finde nicht, dass dies Joe Abercrombies bestes Buch ist. Dies mag daran liegen, dass ich für "Western" als Gendre wenig Begeisterung empfinde. Dies ist dieses Hörbuch jedoch - ein Westernroman in Fantasysetting.
Jedoch muss man auch zugestehen, dass vom generellen Setting abgesehen, die Charaktere schön gezeichnet sind und die Story spannend erzählt wird. Man trifft alte Bekannte wieder und begibt sich auf eine Reise voller Blut, Schweiß, Habgier und dem Fünkchen Menschlichkeit, die Abercrombies Bücher zu dem machen was sie sind: Spannende, kurzweilige Unterhaltung.
