Half a War

2015, Joe Abercrombie


Shattered Sea is a young adult fantasy series written by the British author Joe Abercrombie, a trilogy of novels published by Del Rey in the United States and Harper Voyager in the UK.

The story follows the exploits of Yarvi, a young prince of Gettland with a disabled hand. When his father dies, Yarvi is elevated to the throne but faces a struggle to keep it as others conspire to take it from him. Initially, the main point of view character, the second book moves to two new characters, Thorn and Brand, while Yarvi remains as a central character. In the third book, three new point of view characters (Princess Skara, the Vansterland warrior Raith and Father Yarvi's apprentice Koll, who features throughout the second book also) are introduced.
