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 They burned her home. 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 an alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune, and his feckless lawyer Temple, two men no one should ever have to trust. This novel also represents the return of Logen Ninefingers, one of Abercrombie's most beloved characters. Get A Copy.

Say one thing for Abercrombie, say he knows how to make me love his book even when the setting of the book is Western. I have to mention one thing about the setting of this book before I start my review, I truly despise Western stories.

Here's a few example for famous movies, 3: Sucks, Assassination of Jesse James? I got a fever because of how bad it was, Hateful Eight? Fell asleep, and much more Say one thing for Abercrombie, say he knows how to make me love his book even when the setting of the book is Western. Red Country is the third and final book in the First Law stand-alone trilogy or in other words The Great Leveller collection , the year is now AU, six years after the previous book, 'The Heroes' and thirteen years after the end of the main trilogy, and now the setting of the book is located on the Western continent of the World, Far Country.

All the books in the standalone trilogy followed a simple premise as the main plot and there's no exception for this book as well. There are no surprises in the plot, the book is divided into five parts; the second part, however, is insanely boring and tedious to read. The reason why it felt so boring, I think it's due to the reason that Abercrombie himself stated this was his hardest book to write and he felt burned out during the time of writing this and imo, it can be felt in some parts of the book here and there.

I felt at times somewhat uninspired. Somewhat burned out. Taking your disappointments and your failures, your guilt, and your shame, all the wounds received and inflicted, and sinking them in the past. Starting again. Damning yesterday and facing tomorrow with your head held high.

Times change.

It's those that see it coming, and plan for it, and change themselves to suit that prosper. One duel scene in particular between Lamb and Golden is bloody amazing. Plus, the great climax and ending of this book sealed the deal to make me overlook the problems I had with the book. Red Country is a great conclusion to the standalone trilogy and I must say, it was bittersweet and satisfying for me. I'm concluding this review with another mandatory beautiful quote post: Best Served Cold: View all 40 comments.

You couldn't pay me enough money to read one I even try to deny it with my movie choices, but again, some of my all-time favorites are westerns Tombstone and to Yuma.

Why is that? Why do I think I hate them and secretly love them? I even lived in Wyoming for a time. I'm seriously asking this! I must be crazy Westerns. I must be crazy.

Red Country , as I mentioned, is a western and a darn good one at that. It's not a shoot 'em up western, because they have no guns, it's more of a pioneer trek across uncharted lands and their inherent difficulties and dangers It, very simply, follows the trek of Shy South and her pseudo-father, Lamb, after they return home to find their friend hanged and Shy's much younger brother and sister taken.

The only option, then, is to follow. It quickly becomes apparent that Lamb is much more than "[s]ome kind of coward" and readers of Abercrombie's earlier works will almost immediately recognize who he is the cover doesn't hide much from the discerning eye either for that matter. Okay, he's not that lowly, he just thinks that about himself and having recently finished law school it's nice to have a lawyer who isn't terribly unlikeable! Usually, we get this treatment. Temple is far too easy for my liking to relate to.

He's the type of guy who always goes for the easy way, even taking the easy way when he knows it will only become the hard way. I'm sure there are a few others who may be able to relate as well. It's just too easy to take the easy way isn't it? Even when he knew it was the wrong way. Especially then, in fact, since easy and wrong make such good company.

Even when he had a damn good notion it would end up being the hard way, even then. Why think about tomorrow when today is such a thorny business. Cosca's band of mercenaries is charged with rooting out rebellion, but what they do is anything but.

They pray upon destitute towns, killing with abandon. One of the things that makes Red Country great is that Abercrombie gives us the very interesting interaction between Temple and Shy, one who takes the easy way out with another who does her best, usually meaning hard work, no matter the situation.

For me, this was the interaction of what I am compared to what I wish to be. It really got me thinking about looking for excuses and just getting things done. I'm in a position where I can easily blame all my problems on the fact that I don't get much sleep The easy way tends only to help yourself.

Before I get any further in this review, I must admit that the only other Abercrombie I've read is his The First Law trilogy, but this book made it quite easy to jump back to old times. Having studied as a lawyer, I've learned that you can argue anything you want, so while I can't compare Abercrombie's newest to his last two offerings, I can find a place for myself. For those who have only read The First Law, you're in for another treat. Obviously, I need to get back in the saddle, so to speak, and one of the things I've really missed is how quotable Abercrombie is.

These lines just jump off the page and make you think about them long afterward. As Oscar Wilde has said, "Quotation is a serviceable substitute for wit. To have the world against you and pick your path regardless - there is courage. While as blunt and ill-tempered as any of the best of Abercrombie's characters, she is so great because she does what it takes no matter what those around her think.

Even someone as behind in his Abercrombie reading as me knows there are a few things you can expect in any Abercrombie novel. Is there lots of action?

Yes, although it has a bit of a slow start, but I remember The Blade Itself being similarly slow and similarly excellent. Blood, guts?

Definitely, mainly encompassed by one word, "Lamb. Yes, as mentioned above. Low magic? Yup, you could argue none in fact. Great characters? Abercrombie doesn't focus on the world building, although that gets accomplished well enough along the way, he's more about the characters and their relationships. This isn't really a world you want to live in anyway, although if you look around yourself you might just find out you're not far away. Detailed world-building, however, does not belong on the list of "Abercrombie-isms.

This was a great reminder that I need to read more Abercrombie and soon. Red Country manages not only to be a stellar fantasy, but ranks with the best of the western genre as well. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid eat your heart out. Feb 24, Robin Hobb rated it it was amazing. A somewhat Westernized setting for this fantasy set in Abercrombie's world.

Very enjoyable to catch up with some character friends as well. And of whom or what they did, I shall say nothing! Read for yourself. One of the many things that Joe Abercrombie excels at is the character cameo. A turn of the page and the reader enters the point of view of what might seem a minor character.

But in a space of the few paragraphs, the character takes on dimension, flesh, ambitions, a past, and a life. One ca A somewhat Westernized setting for this fantasy set in Abercrombie's world.

One can perceive that while we are eager to follow the tale of Lamb and Pit and Ro, this intersection shows us that every character inhabits a thread of story that is equally complex and possibly as compelling.

An excellent read, even if it did intrude into my sleep time as a nightmare. The best stories are the ones that don't let go of your mind. View all 5 comments. Shy South a former highway robber with a golden heart gave up on her violent ways and took up farming.

The joined a band of mostly old geezers called Fellowship and the geezers did what geezers are best at: T Shy South a former highway robber with a golden heart gave up on her violent ways and took up farming.

The problem I mentioned is the biggest one: There was exactly one event which could be called exciting and this would be really stretching it for each hundred of pages.

Do not believe me? Let me count spoilers, obviously: One of my friends mentioned in his review you could easy skip tenths of pages and resume reading without getting lost. I wholeheartedly agree. To add insult to the injury, Shy as the main character is the most 2-dimensional one ever to grace any Abercrombie's novels.

This is from a guy whose main strength is great fleshed out characters. There is one probably the most awesome character from the original trilogy present.

How do you make this person boring? Voila, another boring character. The person in question feels right at home in geriatric hospital - I mean Fellowship. I never thought I will say this about any Joe Abercrombie's book, but this one is unbelievably boring.

The author himself mentioned he had troubles writing it, and it clearly shows. I am really surprised at high rating the novel has and had to check several times whether I read the same one as the people who gave it 4 or 5 stars.

They join a fellowship and head to the mining town of Crease.

During their travels, Shy is forced to confront her own checkered past and finds that her stepfather has a past of his own On the heels of finishing A Dance with Dragons, my jones for dark fantasy with morally ambiguous characters was not sated so I turned to Red Coun When Shy South and her cowardly stepfather Lamb return home to find their farmhand dead and Shy's two siblings missing, they venture into the Far Country to find them.

On the heels of finishing A Dance with Dragons, my jones for dark fantasy with morally ambiguous characters was not sated so I turned to Red Country. Red Country is my first Joe Abercrombie book and won't be the last.

Red Country promoted as being a fantasy western and I'd say that's fairly accurate. It's a story of revenge and redemption, two staples of the Western genre, and the trip across the Far Country to Crease has a very western feel to it.

Crease has a setup not unlike the town from Fistful of Dollars or Yojimbo, if you prefer. Lamb and Shy riding out into the unmapped country to find their missing loved ones is straight out of a lot of westerns.

Without giving too much away, it also reminds me of Unforgiven quite a bit once Lamb mans up and shows his true colors. It's nice to see fantasy that strays from the rut of medieval pseudo-European quest stories.

The characters are an interesting bunch. Shy is a woman wondering why she managed to escape justice for her dark past. Lamb is a Northern barbarian trying to keep a promise he made to a dead woman.

Temple is a lifelong screw up trying to turn things around. Cosca, one of the antagonists, is pretty lovable for a villain. They are far from the average fantasy cast and this is far from an average fantasy tale.

Joe Abercrombie's books are known for being dark and gritty. What people rarely mention is that they have a fair amount of dry humor and clever imagery in them as well.

The quotable lines are surprisingly frequent. What I'm trying to say is that Abercrombie's writing was a lot more enjoyable to me than that of a lot of fantasy writers. Also posted at Shelf Inflicted View all 19 comments. Dec 27, Felicia rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love me some Abercrombie, his style is so snarky and detailed and dirty.

I love how with a few sentences he can fill out a minor character so well that you actually feel sorry when they're killed in passing. If you've read his other books you'll recognize several characters, but you don't REALLY need to read the others to get into this. If you don't like Westerns move along doggy, but this is worth reading for sure. The setting is a little odd and out of place with what we have seen before. This series always felt somewhat Norse-like to me with a warrior culture under threat from a more technologically advanced Southern state with some dark fantasy elements and wizards thrown in.

And now we had a western setting? This is one big mash up ideas, too many, which make the entire situation difficult to conceptualise: Although the world building is off centre, the characters are on point as always.

Shy South is an extremely hard woman both in body and temperament. She does not take crap form anyone and has her own skewed sense of justice. Her family have been stolen by slavers, so she hunts them down herself: She is so well written; she is angry, tough and has a plot deserving of her.

She has the unassuming Lamb by her side. He is even tougher than Shy and can take one hell of a beating. There is no evil side per say, everyone exists in a self-serving neutral state and this is a theme he replicates here, though they never seemed to belong together in this story or this setting.

I found it hard to get into because of the lack of suspense that is apparent in his previous books. I remember reading an article or a blog post online a while ago that stated how much the author struggled to write this book. When will my order arrive?

For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. Sandra Brown. Don't miss the spine tingling suspense and tantalizing romance in this thriller about a daring pilot caught in a race against time from 1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown.

Rye Mallett, a fearless "freight dog" pilot charged with flying cargo to far-flung locations, is often rough-spoken and all business, but soft on regulations when they get in the way of meeting a deadline. But he does have a rock-solid reputation: So when Rye is asked to fly into a completely fogbound northern Georgia town and deliver a mysterious black box to a Dr. Lambert, he doesn't ask questions. As Rye's plane nears the isolated landing strip, more trouble than inclement weather awaits him.

He is greeted first by a sabotage attempt on his plane that causes him to crash land, and then by Dr. Brynn O'Neal, who claims she was sent for the box in Dr. Lambert's stead. Despite Rye's "no-involvement" policy when it comes to other people's problems, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to the intrigue surrounding his cargo. Soon Rye and Brynn are in a treacherous forty-eight-hour race to deliver the box before time runs out.

With everyone from law enforcement officials to hired thugs hot on their heels, they must learn to trust each other so they can protect their valuable cargo from those who would kill for it.

There is a constant barrage of social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate.

So, we learn to hide our struggles and protect ourselves from shame, judgment, criticism and blame by seeking safety in pretending and perfection. Based on seven years of her ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. These are the gifts that bring love, laughter, gratitude, empathy and joy into our lives. Rising Strong: When we own our stories, we get to write the ending.

The Call to Courage! Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability—the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome—is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall.

It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people—from leaders in Fortune companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents—shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up.

She asked herself, What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common?

The answer was clear: Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague.

Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness.
