Anyway. Here's what I know so far about The Blade Itself:
It's the first of the First Law trilogy.
Berserk loves it and recommended it to me years ago.
It's written by Joe Abercrombie.
It's very "down to earth."
Hm... It has lots of words in it.
There you go. I basically know nothing about it. So, that being said, it's time for me to make some predictions.
We'll be introduced to the main character in the first chapter.
Someone will be trying to kill the main character by the end of the second chapter.
Five people will die by the end of the book.
The blade that's mentioned in the title will be mentioned in the book by the end of the third chapter.
The main character will need to find the blade before the antagonist does.
There will be a love interest that tries to stop the protagonist from achieving their goal.
For most of the book, the protagonist will be working alone against multiple villians.
The protagonist will trust a lot of people that end up working for the antagonist.
The book will not end on a happy note.
And now, I'm off to go read the first chapter. Or the prologue, if the book has one.
The way this works, after I read it, I'll come back and write my review, which will probably have summaries and will definitely have spoilers. If you've never read this book, you should in theory still be able to follow along with my reviews, but just know that if you then read the book later, you'll already know everything... Just so you're all warned. I'll be back in an hour or two with the first review I have. Yay!
Also, feel free to keep recommending books to me for Rocky Reads. I'll choose the order of them based on how glowing your recommendations are, and even if I start to get a hundred books that I won't have time to do a Rocky Reads for, I will definitely at least still read all the books anyone recommends.
Oh, and I know my blog name is Samara, but my COPE name is Rocky. And Rocky Reads sounds much better in my head than Samara Reads. In case you were wondering where Rocky came from.
