Tear Jerker: The First Law

  • You'd think the book would harden the reader's heart to the point of invulnerability, but there are a few moments that manage to sting. Like any time the Named Men hold a funeral.
  • Nicomo Cosca's death in Red Country definitedly counts, despite his evilly affable villany during the book.
  • The end of Before They Are Hanged, specifically the Dogman's final words at Threetree's grave. Back to the mud, old man. Fare you well.
