Publisher's Summary

Once they were a band of mercenaries who shook the pillars of the world through their cunning, their closely guarded alchemical brews and stone-cold steel. Whoever met their price won.

Now, their glory days behind them and their genius leader in hiding, the warriors known as the Twenty are being hunted down and eliminated one by one. A lifetime of enemies has its own price.

Grim..Bleak..Brilliant

A Brutal tale..no likable characters..Graphic violence..And for all that a wonderful,innovative world.Well worth a read if you want something that's different from the norm in fantasy and is a dark journey even for the grimdark genre.

ok

Good story, made confusing by far to many characters feels like the ending to a long series which would have worked as the characters would have grown beforehand but maybe that was the idea, some original ideas and we'll worth a listen but game of thrones it isn't.
