« Each land in the world produces its own men individually bad – and, in time, other bad men who kill them for the general good. » Emerson Hough
« This is Abercrombie’s best book to date. His writing is sharper than the swords his characters wield and the new setting allows Gritty Fantasy’s father to ramp up the pace!. » Marc Aplin, Fantasy Faction

They burned her home.
They stole her brother and sister.
But vengeance is following.
Shy South hoped to bury her bloody past and ride away smiling, but she’ll have to sharpen up some bad old ways to get her family back, and she’s not a woman to flinch from what needs doing. She sets off in pursuit with only a pair of oxen and her cowardly old stepfather Lamb for company. But it turns out Lamb’s buried a bloody past of his own, and out in the lawless Far Country, the past never stays buried.
