Críticas:

Advance praise for "Half a King"

"A fast-paced tale of betrayal and revenge that grabbed me from page 1 and refused to let go."--George R. R. Martin

""Half a King" is my favorite book by Joe Abercrombie so far, and that's saying something."--Patrick Rothfuss

"As in all Abercrombie's books, friends turn out to be enemies, enemies turn out to be friends; the line between good and evil is murky indeed; and nothing goes quite as we expect. With eye-popping plot twists and rollicking good action, "Half a King" is definitely a full adventure."--Rick Riordan

"Enthralling! An up-all-night read."--Robin Hobb

"Polished 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."--Brent Weeks

""Half a King" can be summed up in a single word: masterpiece. It's a coming-of-age story. It's a Viking saga. It's a revenge tale and family drama and the return of the prodigal son. But most of all, it's 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."--Myke Cole

""Half a King" is full of all the adventure I've come to expect from Abercrombie and a tenderness I never knew he had."--Sam Sykes

A fast-paced tale of betrayal and revenge that grabbed me from page 1 and refused to let go. George R. R. Martin
The Shattered Seas trilogy has worked its way into a very exclusive group of my favorite fantasy novels of all time. The pacing is perfect, the characters deep and true and real, the world rich and authentic, the plot full of twists and turns. Perhaps my favorite part is that no one is purely good or evil: Each and every character has layers upon layers that are a joy to discover. I tore through all three books and truly hope that someday Joe Abercrombie returns to this magnificent, captivating world. James Dashner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner
Tremendously entertaining . . . lightning-fast and filled with a wonderful collection of rogues, villains and two-faced bastards . . . From the first chapter [Joe Abercrombie] wastes no time as the reader is swept up in a gripping tale of betrayal and revenge. SciFi Now

Once this plot has its teeth in you, it will not let go. . . . Abercrombie s masterful storytelling means that everything, from the characters that you come to love and despise, to the sprawling world that is explored, is enthralling. Fantasy Book Review
Abercrombie s Shattered Sea is a fantastic yet believable backdrop to Yarvi s struggle, a vivid imaginary land. The Seattle Times

Intriguing characters . . . nonstop action. Chicago Tribune

Reseña del editor:

A classic coming-of-age tale set in a vivid and richly-imagined world from Sunday Times bestselling author Joe Abercrombie. 'A fast-paced tale of betrayal and revenge that grabbed me from page one and refused to let go' GEORGE R.R. MARTIN Prince Yarvi has vowed to regain a throne he never wanted. But first he must survive cruelty, chains and the bitter waters of the Shattered Sea itself. And he must do it all with only one good hand. Born a weakling in the eyes of his father, Yarvi is alone in a world where a strong arm and a cold heart rule. He cannot grip a shield or swing an axe, so he must sharpen his mind to a deadly edge. Gathering a strange fellowship of the outcast and the lost, he finds they can do more to help him become the man he needs to be than any court of nobles could. But even with loyal friends at his side, Yarvi's path may end as it began - in twists, and traps and tragedy...
