Six people wake up in a spaceship to see their own gruesomely murdered bodies floating in the air around them. Since everyone else is either asleep or a million light years away, they only have each other to suspect. This is a fun, thought-provoking page-turner that keeps heaping on the suspense.

I love me some Grimdark fantasy and Joe Abercrombie is a master of the genre. The First Law trilogy introduces the reader to a world of divided loyalties, harsh justice, and good old-fashioned people-getting-hit-with-sharp-metal-objects fun. Highly recommended.

Django Wexler, besides having an awesome name, knows how to immerse a reader into his world. Though this book can rightly be considered a military fantasy novel, complete with intriguing strategies and compelling tactics, The Thousand Names really shines in terms of its characters and the complex world that swirls around them. This is the first book in what is sure to be a series I put all other books aside for as they come out.

A murderer is loose in Hell. Normally this wouldn't overly concern Thomas Fool, one of Hell's Information Men, but these particular murderers are severe even by demonic standards. And with a delegation from Heaven poking into things and a populace of emboldened human souls running riot through the city, the beleagured detective has his work cut out for him. Brutal, intriguing, and inventive, Simon Kurt Unsworth's vision of a hell redefining itself for a new generation is a compelling mystery with teeth. And more than a few horns....

I've read this graphic novel three times and have found at least four new things lurking in the background each time. Closer to Hill Street Blues than Heroes, Alan Moore's superhero cop tale is just plain fun to spend time with.
