'Abercrombie writes fantasy like no one else' Guardian PRAISE FOR THE FIRST LAW TRILOGY 'Delightfully twisted and evil' Guardian 'Abercrombie has written the finest epic fantasy trilogy in recent memory. He's one writer that no one should miss' Junot Diaz, Pulitzer Prize Winner 'The books are good, really good. They pulled me in. Well-developed world. Unique, compelling characters' Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Name of the Wind PRAISE FOR BEST SERVED COLD 'Joe Abercrombie's BEST SERVED COLD is a bloody and relentless epic of vengeance and obsession in the grand tradition, a kind of splatterpunk sword 'n sorcery COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO, Dumas by way of Moorcock. His cast features tyrants and torturers, a pair of poisoners, a serial killer, a treacherous drunk, a red-handed warrior and a blood-soaked mercenary captain. And those are the good guys ... The battles are vivid and visceral, the action brutal, the pace headlong, and Abercrombie piles the betrayals, reversals, and plot twists one atop another to keep us guessing how it will all come out. This is his best book yet' George R.R. Martin, author of A Game of Thrones PRAISE FOR THE HEROES 'It's a magnificent, richly entertaining account of a single three-day battle - complete with balletic Kurosawan violence - that leaves behind no heroes, only survivors' Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians, in Time MagazineCríticas:
‘Abercrombie writes fantasy like no one else’ Guardian
‘This is my favourite Abercrombie book yet’ PATRICK ROTHFUSS
‘Joe Abercrombie is fast becoming my favourite writer. HALF A KING is a remarkable achievement — thrilling, enthralling, and relentless. The action is frenetic, the characters are as sharp as the blades they wield, and the humour is biting. It's sure to garner him a whole new legion of fans’ DEREK LANDY
‘Perhaps his most technically proficient novel yet, I dare you to read the first chapter and try not to turn the next page. Some wondered if what makes Joe Abercrombie so different would survive the transition to YA. Abercrombie fans, have no fear: Polished and sharp, the un-adult-rated Abercrombie is still unadulterated Abercrombie’ BRENT WEEKS
‘Enthralling. An up-all-night read’ ROBIN HOBB
‘HALF A KING can be summed up in a single word: Masterpiece’ MYKE COLE
‘With eye-popping plot twists and rollicking good action, HALF A KING is definitely a full adventure’ RICK RIORDAN
