New York Times bestselling author Joe Abercrombieas thrilling new series continues in the follow-up to Half a King, which George R. R. Martin hailed as aa fast-paced tale of betrayal and revenge that grabbed me from page 1 and refused to let go.a 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, Gettlandas 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?

With eye-popping plot twists and rollicking good action, Half a King is definitely a full adventure.aaRick Riordan aEnthralling! An up-all-night read.aaRobin Hobb aPolished 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.aaBrent Weeks aHalf a King can be summed up in a single word: masterpiece. Itas a coming-of-age story. Itas a Viking saga. Itas a revenge tale and family drama and the return of the prodigal son. But most of all, itas 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.aaMyke Cole aHalf a King is full of all the adventure Iave come to expect from Abercrombie and a tenderness I never knew he had.aaSam Sykes From the Hardcover edition..
