April brings two background / origin stories we’ve been hoping to read for a LONG time.
Title: Sharp Ends
Author: Joe Abercrombie
Series: World of the First Law
Release Date: April 26
Sharp Ends is a collection of 13 short stories set in the world of The First Law, ranging from 10 years before the events of book #1, The Blade Itself, and ending after the conclusion of standalone Red Country.
While we’re sure all 13 are fantastic, we are particularly excited about reading the background stories for two of our favorite anti-heroes of all time: Inquisitor extraordinaire Sand dan Glokta AND the rage-induced schizophrenic Logan Ninefingers!
How did the brave Colonel (turned torturer) act before his capture, and what was the Bloody Nine like during his really crazy days? We can’t wait to find out!
…..did we mention there’s also a Bremer dan Gorst story?
Watch HQ’s First Law Primer:
Curnden Craw and his dozen are out to recover a mysterious item from beyond the Crinna. Only one small problem: no one seems to know what the item is.
Shevedieh, the self-styled best thief in Styria, lurches from disaster to catastrophe alongside her best friend and greatest enemy, Javre, Lioness of Hoskopp.
And after years of bloodshed, the idealistic chieftain Bethod is desperate to bring peace to the North. There’s only one obstacle left – his own lunatic champion, the most feared man in the North: the Bloody-Nine . . .
