"Waiting On" Wednesday #172: Half the World by Joe Abercrombie!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Half the World
(Shattered Sea, #2)

Sometimes a girl is touched by Mother War. 

Thorn is such a girl. Desperate to avenge her dead father, she lives to fight. But she has been named a murderer by the very man who trained her to kill. 

Sometimes a woman becomes a warrior. 

She finds herself caught up in the schemes of Father Yarvi, Gettland’s deeply cunning minister. Crossing half the world to find allies against the ruthless High King, she learns harsh lessons of blood and deceit. 
Sometimes a warrior becomes a weapon. 

Beside her on the journey is Brand, a young warrior who hates to kill, a failure in his eyes and hers, but with one chance at redemption. 

And weapons are made for one purpose.
Will Thorn forever be a tool in the hands of the powerful, or can she carve her own path?

Half a King is one of the best books I've read in 2014, and definitely one of the best YA epic fantasy I've ever read, so of course, I can't wait for more. I was actually surprised that we will follow other characters, yet at the same time, that makes me even more excited, because I know it will be just as awesome as the previous book. Joe Abercrombie rocks!

  3. I still need to read Half a King. The YA tag has made me hesitant, but I've heard so many good things about him . . .

    Here's my WOW

    1. Well, you shouldn't hesitate at all. Half a King wasn't like any YA book I've ever read, it didn't feel like YA, that's what it made it so awesome! Though, the book itself was pretty awesome, too ;) I can't wait to read more by Abercrombie!
