Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain and shallow, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

Violent and well written. A little slow to ramp up but worth it. Great range of voices used by the voice actor, no struggle to tell who is who like some reads.

Decent post apocalyptic storyline. Some parts are very descriptive while others could of been more so.
