Half a War by Joe Abercrombie

Half a War by Joe Abercrombie

August 24, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Half the War concludes the journey we embarked on with Yarvi in Half a King, bringing his tale to its stunning conclusion and reminding us why we love to read Abercrombie's stories so much.

The introduction of new characters might throw off some readers, but just as I really liked...

I’ve never read anything like this before, and while I enjoyed Red Country, it will be a while until I’m in the mood for a similar read again. A Western-come-Fantasy, it’s packed with interesting characters, a vivid landscape, and blood, so much blood. Shy South. A gritty character if there…
