The Devils by Joe Abercrombie




About The Devils

A brand-new epic fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Joe Abercrombie, featuring a notorious band of anti-heroes on a delightfully bloody and raucous journey

Holy work sometimes requires unholy deeds.

Brother Diaz has been summoned to the Sacred City, where he is certain a commendation and grand holy assignment awaits him. But his new flock is made up of unrepentant murderers, practitioners of ghastly magic, and outright monsters. The mission he is tasked with will require bloody measures from them all in order to achieve its righteous ends.

Elves lurk at our borders and hunger for our flesh, while greedy princes care for nothing but their own ambitions and comfort. With a hellish journey before him, it’s a good thing Brother Diaz has the devils on his side.



Praise For The Devils


“The Devils is just an incredibly fun, incredibly action-packed and, by the end, incredibly affecting book. It slammed the living shit out of me.”
—Tamsyn Muir, New York Times bestselling author of Gideon the Ninth


Praise for the works of Joe Abercrombie


“Bloody and relentless.”
-George R. R. Martin

“Bold and authentically original.”
-Jeff VanderMeer

“If you’re fond of bloodless, turgid fantasy with characters as thin as newspaper and as boring as plaster saints, Joe Abercrombie is really going to ruin your day. A long career for this guy would be a gift to our genre.”
-Scott Lynch

“Imagine The Lord of the Rings as directed by Kurosawa.”
-Lev Grossman

“Magnificent, richly entertaining.”

“There is a gritty edge to his world and an awareness of the human cost of violence that is very contemporary.”
-The Times

“[Abercrombie has] begun breaking his own rules. And succeeding wildly at it. … [R]arely has Abercrombie had so much fun while rollicking through his colorful cast’s foibles and witty dialogue—and rarely has he dished out so much straight-for-the-heart poignancy.”
-The A.V. Club

“Abercrombie writes fantasy like no one else.”
-The Guardian
