Red Country by Joe Abercrombie

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

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 step father 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.

Their journey will take them across the barren plains to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feud, duel and massacre, high into the unmapped mountains to a reckoning with the Ghosts.  Even worse it will force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune, and his feckless lawyer, Temple, two men no one should ever have to trust…

Peer & Press Reviews

Abercrombie rings the changes with his sixth novel, tipping his hat to the Western genre but continuing his mission to drag fantasy, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century with his characteristic mix of gritty realism, complex characterisation, set-piece scenes of stomach-churning violence and villains who are as fully rounded as his flawed heroes…  Abercrombie writes fantasy like no one else: Red Country is a marvellous follow-up to his highly praised The Heroes.

Eric Brown, The Guardian

This is not the epic fantasy of your fathers.  Abercrombie has attempted something quite audacious – he’s essentially written a Western in the style of one from Clint Eastwood’s classic period, but set it in an epic fantasy world.  And, darn, if he doesn’t pull it off…  Red Country reads like neither a Western nor a fantasy novel, but something new, fresh and exciting.

David Barnett, The Independent
