Editorial Reviews


"Bloody and relentless."George R. R. Martin on Best Served Cold

"Bold and authentically original."Jeff VanderMeer on The Blade Itself

"If you're fond of bloodless, turgid fantasy with characters as thin as newspaper and as boring as plaster saints, Joe Abercrombie is really going to ruin your day. A long career for this guy would be a gift to our genre."Scott Lynch on The Blade Itself

"Imagine The Lord of the Rings as directed by Kurosawa."Lev Grossman, Wall Street Journal on The Heroes

"Abercrombie continues to do what he does best . . . Buckle your seat belts for this one . . . . A vivid and jolting tale."Robin Hobb, New York Times bestselling author.

"Abercrombie squeezes your heart till it matches his beat. No one writes with the seismic scope or primal intensity of Joe Abercrombie."Pierce Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Highly recommended - a funny, finely-wrought, terrifically energetic work of high fantasy. Seek it out."Joe Hill

"Rife with emotion with wit to spare, both honed to an effortlessly fine edge. A Little Hatred is the joy of watching a master of the craft with his tools at their sharpest."Sam Sykes, author of Seven Blades in Black

"A Little Hatred is Abercrombie at his very best: witty, wise, and whip-smart. Masterfully plotted . . . . I had high hopes for this book, and it exceed them all."Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld

"Brutal, unforgiving, and terribly fun. Everything awesome readers have come to expect from Joe Abercrombie."Brian McClellan, author of Sins of Empire

"Joe Abercrombie's powerful voice raises the bar in any literary genre. Fantasy fans are beyond fortunate he chose this one."Myke Cole, author of The Armored Saint

"With expert craft, Abercrombie lays the groundwork for another thrilling trilogy."Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Abercrombie unerringly juggles a large cast of multifaceted, morally ambiguous characters, each embroiled in their own complicated story."Booklist (starred review)

"Say one thing for Joe Abercrombie, say that he's a master of his craft."Forbes

"A critical, compelling epic fantasy loaded with

wonderfully drawn characters, the bloodletting tempered with sharp social commentary and
a touch of satire . . . . It doesn't feel like a stretch to say Abercrombie's on his way to writing
another masterpiece of epic fantasy."
B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

"A Little Hatred may be the most

accomplished work from a writer who many already consider a master."
SFF World Review

Editors' pick: Abercrombie digs into the moments when lives are changed and then sets his characters on even tougher paths. Military grimdark fantasy at its finest."— Adrian Liang, Amazon Editor
