Summary
"New York Times bestselling author Joe Abercrombie delivers the stunning conclusion to the epic fantasy trilogy that began with Half a King, praised by George R.R. Martin as "a fast-paced tale of betrayal and revenge that grabbed me from page 1 and refused to let go." Words are weapons. Princess Skara has seen all she loved made blood and ashes. She is left with only words. But the right words can be as deadly as any blade. If she is to reclaim her birthright, she must conquer her fears and sharpen her wits to a lethal edge. Only half a war is fought with swords. The deeply cunning Father Yarvi has walked a long road from crippled slave to king's minister. He has made allies of old foes and stitched together an uneasy peace. But now the ruthless Grandmother Wexen has raised the greatest army since the elves made war on God, and put Bright Yilling at its head--a man who worships only Death. Sometimes one must fight evil with evil. Some--like Thorn Bathu and the sword-bearer Raith--are born to fight, perhaps to die. Others--like Brand the smith and Koll the wood-carver--would rather stand in the light. But when Mother War spreads her irons wings, she may cast the whole Shattered Sea into darkness. Praise for Joe Abercrombie's Half a King "A fast-paced tale of betrayal and revenge that grabbed me from page 1 and refused to let go."--George R.R. Martin "Tremendously entertaining. lightning-fast and filled with a wonderful collection of rogues, villains and two-faced bastards. From the first chapter [Abercrombie] wastes no time as the reader is swept up in a gripping tale of betrayal and revenge."--SciFi Now "Once this plot has its teeth in you, it will not let go. Abercrombie's masterly storytelling means that everything, from the characters you come to love and despise to the sprawling world that is explored, is enthralling."--Fantasy Book Review Half the World "An excellent page-turner. full of drama and energy."--New York Daily News "Another entertaining burst of battle, magic and political machinations from the always reliable Joe Abercrombie. a thoroughgoing blast, a violent, beautiful rabbit hole of craft that is well worth disappearing into."--Shelf Awareness "Compelling. [Thorn] makes Katniss Everdeen look like Dorothy Gale."--Chicago Tribune"--
