‘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
Joe Abercrombie was born in Lancaster on the last day of 1974, the son of an English teacher and a sociologist. He spent much of his youth in imaginary worlds, and left school with a good idea of how to make stuff up. He moved to the big city, learned to brew tea, and ended up as a TV editor, working on documentaries, events and concerts for bands from Iron Maiden to Coldplay. But in the darkness of the night he was still making stuff up, and his first book, The Blade Itself, was published in 2006. He now lives in Bath with his wife Lou and their three children Grace, Eve and Teddy and makes stuff up full-time.
Fantastic read, couldn't put it down. Downloaded the second book before I finished the first and now waiting eagerly for number three to be released next month.Published 1 day ago by Garry Edge
Very well put together and accessible. This is the first book I've picked up in a while and I must say I loved it. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Mr W Mahmud
Didn't realise it was aimed at the YA market; I'd previously enjoyed all his other books. Good plot, nice twists, well paced, but I missed a bit of Glokta's dark humour.Published 2 days ago by RW
Joe Abercrombie does not sit with the greats of modern fantasy. As the guardian critic noted, his prose is at times clumsy. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Gruffalo
The Blade Itself series was very good. Exciting, funny, quirky. This is a children's book,formulaic and thin.
I wonder if this writer has only one real story in him.
story line difficult to follow. due to the number of characters with unusual names.Published 4 days ago by quacker
