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 Sykesshow more
