Short Abercrombie is the best Abercrombie

3 stars

This collection of short to very short stories ties directly into the First Law universe. As a complement to the main arcs, they are an unmitigated good read, highlighting Abercrombie’s strengths (compelling characters and a master’s sense for a scene’s mood) without giving him the room to play to his favourite weaknesses (cynicism and crypto-antisemitic conspiracy threads). On their own, they will probably not do much for you.
