Beskrivning av boken

Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and increasingly bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer extraordinaire, 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, shallow, selfish and self-obsessed, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

And Logen Ninefingers, an infamous warrior with a bloody past, is about to wake up in a hole in the snow with plans to settle a blood feud with Bethod, the new King of the Northmen, once and for all - ideally by running away from it. But as he's discovering, old habits die really, really hard indeed . . .

. . . especially when Bayaz gets involved. A bald old man with a terrible temper and a pathetic assistant, he could be the First of the Magi, he could be a spectacular fraud, but whatever he is, he's about to make the lives of Glotka, Jezal and Logen a whole lot more difficult . . .

Vad andra tycker

Recensioner av The Blade Itself

Att en människa kan ha så många klockrena röster att välja mellan, som passar sina karäktärer så perfekt. Helt otroligt. Den Första Lagen är min favoritserie. Läser eller lyssnar om den vart femte år ungefär.


Great story and a fantastic reader


Väldigt bra, även andra böcker i serien.


Great story and Steven Pacey is a phenomenal narrator! Just give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.
