Subterranean Press Book Description:
Dust jacket and full-color interior illustrations by Jon McCoy.
We’re pleased to announce the signed, limited edition of Joe Abercrombie’s Half the World, the second book in his new trilogy, The Shattered Sea. We’re going to continue with the production values of Half a King, as these two books represent the best thing Joe’s ever written.
The book will be oversize (7*10), printed in two colors on 80# Finch. When the trilogy is finished, we plan to offer an exclusive slipcase to house all three volumes.
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 murderer by the very man who trained her to kill.
Sometimes a woman becomes a warrior
Fate traps her in the schemes—and on the ship—of the deep-cunning minister Father Yarvi. 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 her gruelling journey is Brand, a young warrior who hates to kill. A failure in his eyes and hers, he has 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? Is there a place beyond legend for a woman with a blade?
