5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read
I have been lucky to read this before release date. I was so impressed with how Joe could write such an intriguing & epic top draw fantasy that read with such grace and simplicity. It was like he said, let's cut the crap & just give readers an honest in your face fantasy, which has all the fun & drama of game of thrones but reads as effortlessly as a harry potter book. I...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 9 July 2014
This review is from: Half a King: free sampler (Shattered Sea, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I have been lucky to read this before release date. I was so impressed with how Joe could write such an intriguing & epic top draw fantasy that read with such grace and simplicity. It was like he said, let's cut the crap & just give readers an honest in your face fantasy, which has all the fun & drama of game of thrones but reads as effortlessly as a harry potter book. I won't give anything away because I respect it has not been released yet. But if you love fantasy you need to read this as an adult it will take just a few hours of your time but you will feel the satisfaction of reading one of your great 600 page tomes that sit on your shelf, if you have never read fantasy or are a teen who would like to start this is a great starting point.
This was my first Lord Grimdark book & certainly won't be my last, certainly one of my new favourites, cannot wait until winter for part 2.

I'm loving Joe's stuff these days. I thought the 'Bloody Nine' was one of the best characters in a long while and i reckon this could be a fantastic trilogy based on this first part.
A good story with conflicted characters and what i love most is that the plot doesn't rely on a characters stupid mistakes or ridiculous decisions.
Keep 'em coming Joe.
BTW Joe i also live in Bath and can be found down the Hat and Feather or The Bell sometimes. I'll buy you a pint if i see you.

Abercrombie has not lost his touch, or his sense of humour. Love the book and the characters. I would highly recommend this to any of Joe Abercrombie's fans.

I thoroughly enjoyed the humour and refreshing angle taken on Abercrombie's The First Law Trilogy, so have always picked up his books after this and have not been disappointed since, this is very much the case for this extract as well.

I would strongly recommend this or any other books from the Abercrobie range, if you enjoy fantasy books with humour, witty dialogue and clever intertwining plots.
