I didn't find anything particularly 'Young' about it. I really enjoyed it, great books.

I really do need to go back and re-read the First Law Trilogy.

Personally I recommend the lot in one lovely long trawl (as I did recently thanks to the kindle collection) - First Law trilogy, Best Served Cold, The Heroes, Red Country. Utterly mesmerising.

Oh yeah! So good second day time round. Racing through the first book when I can at home. Golkta is such a great character closely followed by the rest of course. You just don't want the Golkta sections to end.
