UK cover art for Joe Abercrombie's RED COUNTRY


Here's the gorgeous UK cover art for the forthcoming Red Country by Joe Abercrombie. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

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 a woman to flinch from what needs doing. She sets off in pursuit with only a pair of oxen and her cowardly old stepfather 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 lawyer Temple, two men no one should ever have to trust. . .

It sounds almost like a fantasy version of True Grit. Good as that was, I'd definitely be interested to read this!

It's almost like True Grit set in a fantasy universe. And for that exact reason, this sounds like something I'd love to read.

I remember when Joe first started talking about this he used a lot of old Western material as his research. I think it's intended to be a bit of an homage to the Western Abercrombie style. I think he'd definitely appreciate the True Grit comment.

Am I the only one who thinks this sounds a bit too much like Best Served Cold?
