The fi­nal in­stal­ment

in The Shat­tered Sea se­ries is the per­fect end­ing to an out­stand­ing YA tril­ogy. Mother War has spread her wings over the Shat­tered Sea and Fa­ther Yarvi is de­ter­mined to up­hold his oath of vengeance against Grand­mother Wexen and the High King.

Once again there are new point- of- view char­ac­ters, which may cause a lit­tle dis­ap­point­ment for some, but you’ll grow to love Raith, Koll and Skara as much as you loved Yarvi, Brand and Thorn, whom you’ll still see plenty of in the back­ground. Joe Aber­crom­bie has long been the master of grim and gritty fan­tasy, but Half A War proves that he’s got all the skills of a master ro­mance writer. The bat­tles are bloody, the twists are shock­ing and the deaths are heart­break­ing. Bri­die Ro­man
