The Sanctuary of the Redeemers is a vast and desolate place - a place without joy or hope. Most of its occupants were taken there as boys and for years have endured the brutal regime of the Lord Redeemers whose cruelty and violence have one singular purpose - to serve in the name of the One True Faith. In one of the Sanctuary's vast and twisting maze of corridors stands a boy. He is perhaps fourteen or fifteen years old - he is not sure and neither is anyone else.

This is definitely a book to recomend, filled with grit and with the true motives of most characters swaying with the plot beautifully.

The end is coming. Logen Ninefingers might only have one more fight in him but it’s going to be a big one. Battle rages across the North, the King of the Northmen still stands firm and there’s only one man who can stop him. His oldest friend and his oldest enemy. It’s time for the Bloody-Nine to come home. With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war. A secret struggle in which no-one is safe and no-one can be trusted.

I was put onto this series by a friend and I have to say, I loved it. The character work is beautiful and although I guessed most of the endings and twists, the flavour was amazing. If you're looking for a gritty dark fantasy with political intrigue, listen to this series. The reader also does a very good job and I look forward to hearing more works read by Steven Pacey.
