The two of them are a lot of fun to read about. From their first meeting to their final story together more than a dozen years later, their relationship has weathered through countless adventures, challenges and hardships. Alas, other tales were not so memorable, and there were more of these than I would have liked. Still, I have to stress that the majority of the stories in here were decent to good. In fact, reading this book only managed to further sharpen my desire to read another full-length Abercrombie novel perhaps, even one about the dynamic duo of Shev and Javre?
