Look out, this is Battle Fantasy at its best. Fans of Joe Abercrombie will feel right at home—particularly fans the kick-ass Monza in Best Served Cold. The twisting plot of ambition and revenge is full of tough female characters—they are intelligent commanders, vicious fighters, ruthless plotters and no one is surprised that they’re also women. It’s also refreshingly non-heteronormative, and the story is full of inventive narcotics, creative demonology, and twisted religious fanatics. It’s a wild ride.
