Joe Abercrombie opens up his bag of tricks once again to remind us why we fell in love with this series in the first place. The characterisation, the exquisite narrative, and the worldbuilding are what you would come to expect from Abercrombie. More insight, more joy, and of course a large helping of depravity and mischievousness.
e Age of Madness trilogy. The Wisdom of Crowds started off at such a heightened state of terror that it caused my neck to prickle with anxiety from the beginning. This novel takes off at breakneck speed and does not let up. It might be one of the most brutal Abercrombie books that I’ve read. Honestly, this whole trilogy took off into a level of brutality that is a completely new flavor than the previous novels. That’s saying something— Abercrombie is well known for his unbridled savagery in his writing. It was chaotic, messy, heartbreaking, and a hell of a ride
Will from Gollancz reached out to David about FanFiAddict joining a reread of The Age of Madness in preparation for the release of The Wisdom of Crowds with our blog specifically covering The Trouble With Peace, Chapters 1-9. Needless to say, I dropped everything I was doing and jumped at the chance to take part.
Once again Abercrombie astounds his readers with his no holds barred imagination. The master of Grimdark himself proves once again that his attention to detail is his greatest skill.
