They burned her home.
They stole her brother and sister.
But vengeance is following.
Shy South hoped to bury her bloody past and ride away smiling, but she´ll have to sharpen up some bad old ways to get her family back, and she´s not one to flinch from what needs doing. She sets off in pursuit with only a pair of oxen and her cowardly old setp father Lamb for company. But it turns out Lamb´s buried a bloody past of his own. And out in the lawless Far Country the past never stays buried.
Their journey will take them across the barren plains to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feud, duel and massacre, high into the unmapped mountains to a reckoning with the Ghosts. Even worse, it will force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune, and his feckless awuer Temple, two men no one should ever have to trust . . .
´Red Country reads like neither a Western nor a fantasy novel, but something new, fresh and exciting´ The Independent
´There´s jaw-dropping violence, twists, turns and character arcs that prompt the occasional muted cheer. Abercrombie is fast supplanting George R.R. Martin as the standard by which all contemporary epic fantasy should be measured.´ Pornokitsch
