Inhaltsangabe

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. And Logen Ninefingers, an infamous warrior with a bloody past, is about to wake up 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 hard....especially when Bayaz gets involved. An 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 Glokta, Jezal, and Logen a whole lot more difficult....

Great series but not so great start

This book begins a great series. Unfortunately the book itself is not that good. It takes half the book over 10 hours, before you even get the first hints of anything resembling a plot, and more than two thirds through the book before even one of the main characters get anything resembling motivations for any of the things they do. By the end of it though, things are going great, there is a plot, and characters have motivations for what they do, and you can not wait to the get the next part.

The narrator is doing a good job. He misses few a paragraph pauses making scene-changes confusing, but he is still well above average.

Amazing characters and a brilliant narrator

Story:
What seems like a decent fantasy-story quickly becomes one of the best you will ever hear - not because it has a fancy story with twists and turns, but because every single character has a some kind of an extremely big quirk. There are no shiny heroes you can rely upon, no knights on white horses, no typical moralizers, but likeable and at the same time hateable anti heroes. And that's what this book is mainly build around.
Narrator:
Though at the beginning Steven Pacey seems hard to listen to (a bit too monotone and fast when he is "just" narrating), he excels later on, when he develops the characters. Almost always you know which person is talking, because each one is impersonated brilliantly by him and this is - so far - the best narrator I've experienced.
