The Fair

Joe Abercrombie’s The Heroes

Here's what we can learn from Abercrombie: Pacing, Narrative, and Cadence. Not only does the author have a firm technical grasp of all these elements, but he works them like magic into The Heroes. He uses all of these to add to the whole of his novel (the whole is greater than the sum of its parts) and creates something that can make reader's blood pump like no other book can.
