Adrian Selby's 2nd novel, (and no, I haven't read his debut one), is quite...different.
And in a good way.
Selby reminded a lot of Joe Abercrombie. His style is a lot like that.
Winter Road is a heady read, and we'll worth your time. Excellent read.
In short, this is a fantasy world with no magic, no fantasy monsters, but relies heavily on plants.
Plants of different types. Fightbrews are drinks mixed with blending of plants to transform you into a super-enhanced fighter. Petty cool.
The characters are interesting and varied. Love the Oskoros! Nuff said.
This book definitely made me interested in looking for his first book.
