Presenting the final part of his critically acclaimed Shattered Sea series, fantasy sensation Joe Abercrombie takes to the stage to discuss Half a War.
The concluding volume of the Shattered Sea trilogy returns us to the epic, war-torn world of the bestselling Half a King and Half the World as old friends and foes align on the sides of good and evil -- Father Yarvi, whose hard-earned peace is under threat, and the ruthless Grandmother Wexen, whose grand army marches on with Bright Yilling at its head. With endorsements by such science fiction and fantasy luminaries as George R R Martin, Rick Riordan and Derek Landy, Abercrombie's action-packed and morally ambiguous plotting is set to come to a thrilling head.
Lancaster-born Abercrombie has gone from runner at a TV production company to freelance film editor, to full-time fantasist with a string of hugely successful books to his name. Finalist for the John W. Campbell Award for best new writer, the author debuted in 2005 with The Blade Itself, followed by Before They Are Hanged and Last Argument of Kings.
Witty yet dark and ambiguous, Abercrombie's work has come to redefine modern fantasy. Join us for this fascinating insight into the author and his worlds, and to celebrate the close of the Shattered Sea trilogy.
