Best Served Cold
Why this book?
The author is a heavy hitter in dark fantasy and the title says it all, Best Served Cold. Glancing at the title, I immediately thought of revenge and this story takes the cake. Joe takes you on an adventure that you wish would not end, cold-hearted characters willing to go to any length to fulfil his story and their personal agendas. His eye for detail leads you to feel as if you are walking with each of them on their journey. Don’t expect the expected because he has an imagination to conjure the most extraordinary villains and surprising heroes. Plots that don’t always have happy endings. The UK author translates his storyline into a brilliant narrative that will make you put his book on the shelf as it waits for the second. For once you have read a Joe Abercrombie book, you will want to read more.
