About the Author

Joe Abercrombie was born in Lancaster in 1974, spent much of his youth in imaginary worlds, and left school with a good idea of how to make stuff up. After graduating from Manchester University he worked as a TV editor, but he never stopped making stuff up, and his first book, The Blade Itself, was published in 2006. He has since written eight more novels and a collection of stories in his First Law and Shattered Sea series. He lives in Bath with his wife Lou and their three children Grace, Eve and Teddy, and makes stuff up full-time.

Reviews

"[Abercrombie] might have his most important series of novels yet."--Locus
"A critical, compelling epic fantasy loaded withwonderfully drawn characters, the bloodletting tempered with sharp social commentary anda touch of satire . . . . It doesn't feel like a stretch to say Abercrombie's on his way to writinganother masterpiece of epic fantasy."--B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

"Abercrombie continues to do what he does best . . . Buckle your seat belts for this one . . . . A vivid and jolting tale."--Robin Hobb, New York Times bestselling author.
"Abercrombie examines the effects of social upheaval and the use and abuse of power through the viewpoints of a large cast, from kings, princes, warriors and seers to businessmen and women; the characterization is little short of brilliant. The plot is labyrinthine, with trademark Abercrombie twists and turns and reversals of fortune. He writes of slum life with graphic realism, and his rendering of battle scenes is to die for."--The Guardian
