4.5/5

What happens when you find out after traveling with a bunch of people you took to be lovable antiheroes that they were, in the end, just plain evil? This is an interesting question that doesn't often come up in grimdark despite the fact it is a series based around the principle of there being no good people and only various shades of black. One instance this happened with me was the FIRST LAW TRILOGY where Glokta, after being one of the most fascinating sympathetic characters for two books, eventually revealed himself to be irredeemable.

The Price of Faith (The Ties That Bind #3) 05, Mar

3.5/5

THE PRICE OF FAITH is the third volume of THE TIES THAT BIND and the end of that trilogy set in Rob Hayes' fantastic sword and sorcery world. It has events which are bound to tick some readers off and bound to excite others. Is it worth the purchase? In the end, I leave it up to my review to let readers decide.

The Colour of Vengeance (The Ties that Bind #2) 19, Feb

5/5

THE COLOUR OF VENGEANCE is the sequel to THE HERESY WITHIN and the second novel of THE TIES THAT BIND trilogy by Rob J. Hayes. It follows the adventures of the Black Thorn, a murderous bandit who is possibly the strongest man in the world but utterly unable to control himself or his tempers. The Black Thorn has been betrayed by his fellows and is not going to stop until he gets his revenge.
