If you like Joe Ambercrombie style work - great characters, rough and raw, bad language, but always great twists with a very good narrator - you'll like this book. :-)

From the start, the character of Dug grabbed me. Very real feel. Spring, the young girl, reminds me a lot of Arya Stark, only more witty. Sometimes the similes got a little over done, but nevertheless very imaginative. You feel the tension when you're supposed to and laugh when the author wants you to. The main character's back story was woven into the plot bit by bit, keeping you interested in Dug's past without distracting from the main thrust of the plot.
It's gruesome and lots of harsh language and scenes. I grimaced at some of the torture scenes. Not for the young.
The narrator was perfect. Being a yank, I love hearing fantasy in British accents. For a first novel, this was a very good entry. Glad I gave it a chance.
