Half a King (Shattered Sea, #1)Half a King by Joe Abercrombie

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


(I'd give it 3 and a half stars if I could.)

Prince Yarvi was born with a bad arm and plans to take the oath of a minister and renounce his small claim to the Black Chair. However, his dreams are quickly dashed when his father and brother are both killed and he is to assume the chair. But he is quickly betrayed and vows revenge. The first book of a planned trilogy, this an entertaining, fast-moving, action-packed fantasy adventure novel. I found it a little predictable, but Abercrombie does have a good sense of character and some snappy dialogue.

[I received this through Netgalley but the book was officially released on July 15, 2014.]
