9780007550234: Half the World (Shattered Sea, Book 2)

A classic coming-of-age tale set in a vivid and richly imagined world from Sunday Times bestselling author Joe Abercrombie.

‘Joe Abercrombie is probably the brightest star among the new generation of British fantasy writers’ The Times

‘Joe Abercrombie is doing some terrific work’ George R.R. Martin

HALF A KING – the first of three standalone but interconnected novels aimed at younger readers – will be published in summer 2014. A classic coming-of-age tale, set in a brilliantly imagined alternative historical world reminiscent of the Dark Ages with Viking overtones, the book tells the story of Yarvi, youngest son of a warlike king. Born with a crippled hand, he can never live up to his father’s expectations of what a real man should be and his destiny is not the throne but the Ministry, not the sword and shield but the book and the soft word spoken.

But when his father and brother are killed, Yarvi is propelled to kingship and must sit in the Black Chair, between gods and men, and half a man must find a way to rule as half a king. Thus begins a gripping switchback ride of a tale that will carry Yarvi far beyond his kingdom, from the heights of royalty to the depths of slavery, during the course of which he must find better ways to fight than with a sword, and learn the lessons that will make him a man.

Product Description:

‘Grabbed me and refused to let go’ George R.R. Martin

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 murderer by the very man who trained her to kill.

SOMETIMES A WOMAN BECOMES A WARRIOR

Fate traps her in the schemes – and on the ship – of the deep-cunning minister Father Yarvi. 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 her gruelling journey is Brand, a young warrior who hates to kill. A failure in his eyes and hers, he has one chance at redemption.

AND WEAPONS ARE MADE FOR ONE PURPOSE

Will Thorn forever be a tool in the hands of the powerful or can she carve her own path? Is there a place beyond legend for a woman with a blade?

Product Description:

‘Grabbed me from page one and refused to let me go’ George R.R. Martin

Brand was raised on the rat-infested streets of the poor quarter. Powerfully strong and trained in combat, fighting is his best skill. Trouble is, he doesn’t like killing people …

Born to a wealthy house, Thorn Bathu has defied the odds and chosen to train as a warrior. The obstacles she has encountered have made her tough and defensive – suspicious of everyone she meets.

Thrown together for Father Yarvi’s mission to gain allies in the coming war, Brand and Thorn will travel across the known world into the teeth of terrible danger. They will be forced to use everything they have learned in the training ground, but will that be enough to stay alive?
