Review: Half The World by Joe Abercrombie

by Ben

I think Abercrombie has done it again. This is another great book, right up there with Before They Are Hanged and The Heroes. The sequel to Half a King, Half The World is entertaining, funny, frustrating and full of little twists and turns. What is the most genius about this book is that while Father […]

Review: Half a King by Joe Abercrombie

by Ben

Abercrombie’s world is usually full of swearing, sex and violence. Now the thought of Abercrombie doing a YA book gave everyone pause. Can he do YA? What would it be like? Abercrombie without swearing, sex and minimal violence? Can it be so? Prince Yarvi is studying to become a minister; an adviser, historian, intellect and […]

Win a copy of Half a King by Joe Abercrombie

Half a King is Job Abercrombie’s latest book. He’s know for gritty and gore with lovable characters that you love to hate, but can’t. If you’ve read his books you know what I’m talking about, Glokta…Nicomo! Thanks to Harper Collins NZ we have 5 copies of Half a King to give out to NZ Residents. However, […]
