The final novel in the First Law Trilogy by New York Times bestseller Joe Abercrombie.

Logen Ninefingers might only have one more fight in him—but it’s going to be a big one. Battle rages across the North, the king of the Northmen still stands firm, and there’s only one man who can stop him: his oldest friend, and his oldest enemy. It’s time for the Bloody-Nine to come home.

With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war, a secret struggle in which no one is safe, and no one can be trusted. As his days with a sword are far behind him, it’s fortunate that he’s deadly with his remaining weapons: blackmail, threats, and torture.

Jezal dan Luthar has decided that winning glory is too painful an undertaking and turned his back on soldiering for a simple life with the woman he loves. But love can be painful too—and glory has a nasty habit of creeping up on a man when he least expects it.

The king of the Union lies on his deathbed, the peasants revolt, and the nobles scramble to steal his crown. No one believes that the shadow of war is about to fall across the heart of the Union. Only the First of the Magi can save the world, but there are risks. There is no risk more terrible than to break the First Law.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The sword & sorcery trilogy that began with The Blade Itself and Before They Are Hanged comes to a violent, sardonic, and brilliant conclusion.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “You should always end with the best…Last Argument of Kings is the textbook example of this theory in practice. The third in Joe Abercrombie’s debut fantasy series…[features] wry dialogue and tough, interweaving plot lines.”


Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lorena | 2/13/2014

    " I ripped through the first two books in this series months ago, but delayed reading the conclusion...not because I thought it wouldn't be good, but because I knew it would be DEVASTATINGLY good (emphasis on the devastating), and I had to psych myself up to find out what happened to everyone. I was not wrong. The last book in the series was fantastic, and also exceedingly bleak. And there's nothing I would change about it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ashley | 2/10/2014

    " Disappointing ending to an otherwise enjoyable series. I really felt at the end " why did I read this. Nothing at all changed" the status quo was exactly the same at the end as the beginning. Some may enjoy the symmetry. I found it utterly unsatisfying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Derek | 2/6/2014

    " An excellent end to the series. There was enough resolution to satisfy all the loose threads left hanging, but enough open-endedness in a couple of areas where there were clearly a couple of openings left for future stories. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jason | 1/28/2014

    " No spoiler alerts here, so no worries there. I honestly finished the series feeling very much like it was rapidly wrapped up and manufactured to have an ending with a forced plot twist (or twists). The direction the characters took and the overall ending was inconsistent with the way they were written to beging with. I honestly felt completely unsatisfied with its completion and how unbelievable the motivations and actions and honestly down right bipolar personality shifts some of the characters seem to exhibit. It was as if they were totally different people. The author has real talent but the ending was awful...honestly. Trying to do this with no spoilers but had to share. "
