Waiting on Wednesday – Half the World

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon

Abercrombie is one of my favorite authors and Half a King is probably hands down my favorite book that has been categorized as Young Adult. I am really looking forward to the next in the series.


Title: Half the World


Author:  Joe Abercrombie
Expected publication: February 12th 2015
Publisher: Harper Voyager
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 pawn in the hands of the powerful, or can she carve her own path?
