Hardboiled in the same way that Joe Abercrombie books are. Very enjoyable...
I've noticed that a lot of fantasy now has a steampunk feel about It (Anthony Ryan, Brian McClellan etc), and the technology / industriaslisation aspect makes things more interesting (alongside 'systems of magic')... Maybe the genre had moved beyond Tolkien - I enjoyed researching Matchlocks and other arcane firearms whilst reading Blackwing.
So if you liked Sand dan Glokta's caustic besides, you should enjoy this.
