The Trouble With Peace

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
September 2020
21 hours 57 minutes
A fragile peace gives way to conspiracy, betrayal, and rebellion in this sequel to the New York Times bestselling A Little Hatred from epic fantasy master Joe Abercrombie.

Peace is just another kind of battlefield . . .

Savine dan Glokta, once Adua's most powerful investor, finds her judgement, fortune and reputation in tatters. But she still has all her ambitions, and no scruple will be permitted to stand in her way.

For heroes like Leo dan Brock and Stour Nightfall, only happy with swords drawn, peace is an ordeal to end as soon as possible. But grievances must be nursed, power seized, and allies gathered first, while Rikke must master the power of the Long Eye . . . before it kills her.

Unrest worms into every layer of society. The Breakers still lurk in the shadows, plotting to free the common man from his shackles, while noblemen bicker for their own advantage. Orso struggles to find a safe path through the maze of knives that is politics, only for his enemies, and his debts, to multiply.

The old ways are swept aside, and the old leaders with them, but those who would seize the reins of power will find no alliance, no friendship, and no peace lasts forever.

Nothing I haven’t come to expect from Abercrombie and Pacey. Amazing character-based fantasy with clever dialogue, tense action, and high stakes. No easy ending or deus ex machina here.

The best so far. This is phenomenal in every part of it. Story. Narration. The world building is so good in this installment. The characters grow and change in true Abercrombie fashion. Top- notch all around!

Love the duo of Joe Abercrombie and Steve Pacy they both do an excellent job of bringing this series to life. The only criticism I have is that the audio cuts out at certain parts of the story. But this series is incredibly dark and fascinating. The insights in to politics and the parallels one could draw from our current political climate make it all the more interesting. It has romance and adventure that all, "Turn to shit". Good books.

Another great book by Abercrombie. I was a little disappointed in some of the characters but that's not speaking bad about the book I had complete buy-in and was interested to find out what happened. The narration by Packet once again was excellent.
