Folks, this guy is sort of new and I want to make sure his series gets out there, cuase it's really good. The books are "The Blade Itself", "Before They Are Hanged", "Last Argument of Kings". The characters are quite complex and the storyline has a lot of twists and turns. It kept me avidly turning the pages. I like it that the characters are not just "good" or "evil" they have a portion of both, makes them more believable to me. I'd like to think I'm one of the "good" guys but since I've never been: A king of a country (despite my fervant belief I should be!), A barbarian warrior ( I'm a teensy bit out of shape for it now), or a powerful Magi ( I have neat trick where I make bacon disappear real fast, but I don't think it qualifies) , who knows how might act? Seriously though, this a great Fantasy series, if you like em a bit dark, and you'll be missing out if you don't give 'em a try.
