The Shattered Seas trilogy has worked its way into a very exclusive group of my favorite fantasy novels of all time. James Dashner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner

Sometimes a girl is touched by Mother War.
Thorn is such a girl. Desperate to avenge her dead father, she lives to fight. But she has been named a murderer by the very man who trained her to kill.
Sometimes a woman becomes a warrior.
She finds herself caught up in the schemes of Father Yarvi, Gettland s deeply cunning minister. Crossing half the world to find allies against the ruthless High King, she learns harsh lessons of blood and deceit.
Sometimes a warrior becomes a weapon.
Beside her on the journey is Brand, a young warrior who hates to kill, a failure in his eyes and hers, but with one chance at redemption.
And weapons are made for one purpose.
Will Thorn forever be a pawn in the hands of the powerful, or can she carve her own path?
Praise for 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
Splendid . . . Abercrombie has a knack for building characters with pathos and wit. . . . The fast-paced story draws readers along while setting up what promises to be an explosive final showdown. Publishers Weekly
Clever, exciting and unexpected. SFF World

Praise for Joe Abercrombie s Half a King
Half a King is my favorite book by Joe Abercrombie so far, and that s saying something. Patrick Rothfuss
As in all Abercrombie s books, friends turn out to be enemies, enemies turn out to be friends; the line between good and evil is murky indeed; and nothing goes quite as we expect. With eye-popping plot twists and rollicking good action, Half a King is definitely a full adventure. Rick Riordan
Enthralling An up-all-night read. Robin Hobb
Polished and sharp, perhaps his most technically proficient novel yet . . . I dare you to read the first chapter and try not to turn the next page. Brent Weeks
Half a King can be summed up in a single word: masterpiece. It s a coming-of-age story. It s a Viking saga. It s a revenge tale and family drama and the return of the prodigal son. But most of all, it s this: a short time alongside people as weak and blundering as we are and, in the midst of it all, as heroic. Far too short a time, as it turns out. What a wonderful book. Myke Cole
Half a King is full of all the adventure I ve come to expect from Abercrombie and a tenderness I never knew he had. Sam Sykes
