    1. I have all of the individual books, but chose to review the compendium to make it easier. I LOVE Joe's writing style. It is gritty, sarcastic, witty, and humorous. The characters are rough but likeable. I love the idea of revenge, and most of his books center around this theme. II can't put his books down when I have them. I remember when his first book was published, I was in Afghanistan, and HAD to have the other two. I was praying my package didn't get blown up (it didn't). I highly recommend [...]

    3. I read the first three stories in this collection (1500 pages out of a total 3000+) and if you like grim heroes, foolish kings, Machiavellian political machinations, and some rather graphic torture sequences, these are the books for you.I started out enjoying the series, but by the third book "Last Argument of Kings" most of the charm had worn off. My biggest complaint was that the characters never really grew. So, worth reading overall, but I don't think I'll be going any farther.


    4. A masterpiece, The First Law Trilogy was great, fantastic characters and gripping stories. The Three Stand Alone novels, each different and each brilliant in their own way, the gripping Best Served Cold tale of vengeance, the interwoven tales of The Heroes battle, and the western story of Red Country. All of it Grim and Dark, but riveting. Well worth the time. Eagerly awaiting more.


    5. I enjoyed this authors works immensely. My first question when finished was, is he writing more in this world? Great characters, very gritty and real. Just enough magic and fantasy creatures. Some dark things happen. The winners often turn out to be realShits! Lots of violence, very gritty and realistic. Interesting romances and well written love scenes.So all in all a great set.


    6. I think Fritz Leiber would've enjoyed Joe's books: darkly comic and realistic about the trials of swords and magic fantasy world, Joe creates interesting stories and characters. It was only with the last book (6th) that the writing began to degrade in quality, which in itself is an accomplishment!


    7. This was a filler series for me while waiting for Mr. Martin's next book. And the author quickly became my favourite. Everything he has written in this world is outstanding.


    8. I couldn't put these books down! If you want to lose yourself in an amazing realm with characters that keep you turning the pages, read these books
