Publisher Description

Sharp Ends is the ultimate collection of award winning tales and exclusive new short stories from the master of grimdark fantasy, Joe Abercrombie.

Violence explodes, treachery abounds, and the words are as deadly as the weapons in this rogue's gallery of side-shows, back-stories, and sharp endings from the world of the First Law.

The Union army may be full of bastards, but there's only one who thinks he can save the day single-handed when the Gurkish come calling: the incomparable Colonel Sand dan Glokta.

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 . . .

A Character Author Focusing on Characters

If you’ve read the First Law trilogies, you know Abercrombie is at his best when he spins a story through multiple perspectives. Abercrombie takes to anthologies like a fish to water and he could not have done better. This book is incredibly satisfying to fans of the series as it wraps up storylines, introduces new characters, and provides brief glimpses into backstories that have yet to be explored. If you are a fan of the First Law trilogies, this is as vital a read as the Blade Itself and Best Served Cold.

Excellent

I normally don't care for short stories. I like to be in it for the long-haul. But anything by Joe Abercrombie, and I'm willing to read it. Once again Joe does not fail to satisfy! Gritty, bloody, darkly funny. Highly recommended.
