Joe Abercrombie is a British author of fantasy fiction, best known for the First Law trilogy. Finding that his day job as a freelance film editor left him with a lot of time on his hands, Abercrombie began writing the first novel in an epic fantasy trilogy. That novel became The Blade Itself, published to widespread acclaim in 2005 and followed by Before They Are Hanged and Last Argument of Kings in 2007 and 2008 respectively. The series comprised the First Law trilogy, and Abercrombie went on to pen three standalone fantasy novels also set in the same world. In 2014, Abercrombie branched out into Young Adult fiction with Half a King, the first in a Viking-inspired series called Shattered Sea. Two further volumes in the series have thus far been written. His latest series, The Age of Madness, is a trilogy that returns to the First Law world.
Conspiracy and betrayal run rampant in this energetic piece of high octane fantasy, the second instalment in Abercrombie’s magnificent The Age of Madness trilogy.
