Abercrombie's A Red Country's synopsis

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Joe Abercrombie posted an update about the writing of his latest novel, so far known as A Red Country (it's a working title). The book, some kind of Fantasy western will be set in the Old Empire, still from Abercrombie's First Law world,  now has a synopsis.  Sadly for the folks waiting for a return of Logen, there's no mention of him. At least, Nicomo Cosca is back!  Here you go:
“Shy South comes home to her farm to find a blackened shell, her brother and sister stolen, and knows she’ll have to go back to bad old ways if she’s ever to see them again.  She sets off in pursuit with only her cowardly old step-father Lamb for company.  But it turns out he’s hiding a bloody past of his own.  None bloodier.  Their journey will take them across the lawless plains, to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feuds, duels, and massacres, high into unmapped mountains to a reckoning with ancient enemies, and force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune, a man no one should ever have to trust…”

Joe also wrote (in comments), that it take place 15 years after trilogy, and 6 years after The Heroes. So it's possible be about Logen and his daugther. But i do doubt, that it is good idea, i'd rather read his novell/serries in a new setting.
