I've moved on to the second book in Abercrombie's First Law series. I really liked the characters in the first, but I'm getting the feeling that I'm losing touch with these books. One thing I don't like is that the fight scenes seem like they get the bulk of his attention...really wish he'd invest some of that energy into the surroundings, world mythology, or non-fisticuff character interaction.
It just seems like a waste of some really interesting characters (who are now lifeless or being largely ignored in the second book). I'm not sure where this series is going, but I'm hoping it picks up. If anyone's made it through all 3, any clues are appreciated. I'll ditch this thing if I have to, I'm crazy enough to do it.
I just finished the second about a month ago. I had a maybe 4-6 month break between the first and the second book so I had forgotten most things.
The second was pretty good although the ending was the definition of anti-climatic.
I'll pick up the third from the library eventually, but I'm not interested in it if it's going to be more of a court-politics vs battle agaisnt the eaters.
