Half A War
Release Date: 16 July
512 pages | Hardback/ ebook Author: Joe Abercrombie Publisher: Harper Voyager
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
