Before They Are Hanged : Joe Abercrombie :
In the south, Glokta is sent across the sea to help fortify the besieged city of Dagoska against the Gurkish. In the north, Bethod has managed to forge the unruly Northmen into powerful fighting force. As Threetrees and Dogman lead them back to the rest of the army, West quickly begins to fall for Cathil.
West eventually regroups with the Union Army. However the cost is high, with Threetrees and Cathil going "back to the mud". In the south, as Glokta prepares Dagoska for the ensuing siege, it quickly becomes clear that there is a traitor within the city ruling council. When a Gurkish emissary arrives demanding a peaceful handover of the city, Glokta takes the opportunity to torture the names of the traitors out of him; Carlot dan Eider and the Governors ' son.
This victory is a pyrrhic one, as the Gurkish forces begin to breach the city and Glokta almost gets murdered by an Eater.
Glokta barely escapes with his life, though he is credited with defending the city for much longer than expected. Under pressure from the Arch Lector , he is forced to extract a confession from an innocent man. Kings of the Wyld. Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne 1. An Echo of Things to Come.
