    The First Law was a key book in terms of the Dismas Hardy series -- how the lives of important characters evolve -- and also tackles issues of corruption. As usual, it was rich with action and human complexities. The reader, however, managed to present the book in a manner that all but removed the subtleties of Lescroart's skills.   The First Law is the closest book series I know to A Song of Ice and Fire. With a bit less drama and internal monologues - although there, but in smaller extent, and less characters to follow. But what it lacks in those it gains in action/5.
