Half a War (Shattered Sea #3) by Joe Abercrombie
Release Date: July 16, 2015
Words are weapons
Princess Skara has seen all she loved made blood and ashes. She is left with only words. But the right words can be as deadly as any blade. She must conquer her fears and sharpen her wits to a lethal edge if she is to reclaim her birthright.
Only half a war is fought with swords
The deep-cunning Father Yarvi has walked a long road from crippled slave to king’s minister. He has made allies of old foes and stitched together an uneasy peace. But now the ruthless Grandmother Wexen has raised the greatest army since the elves made war on God, and put Bright Yilling at its head – a man who worships no god but Death.
Sometimes one must fight evil with evil
Some – like Thorn Bathu and the sword-bearer Raith – are born to fight, perhaps to die. Others – like Brand the smith and Koll the wood-carver – would rather stand in the light. But when Mother War spreads her iron wings, she may cast the whole Shattered Sea into darkness
Yay, July is close! Because I can’t wait to read the last book of Joe Abercrombie’s awesomely epic fantasy series. Each book is from a new character’s POV, so this is a series you don’t need to read in order, which is always a plus. I do recommend reading HALF A KING and HALF THE WORLD because they’re amazing. I recommend this series if you like gritty fantasy.
