Sometimes a girl is touched by mother war
Thorn is such a girl. Desperate to avenge her dead father, she lives to fight. But she has been named murderer by the very man who trained her to kill.
Sometimes a woman becomes a warrior.
Fate traps her in the schemes - and on the ship - of the deep-cunning minister Father Yarvi. Crossing half the world to find allies against the ruthless High King, she learns harsh lessons of blood and deceit.
Sometimes a warrior becomes a weapon.
Beside her on her gruelling journey is Brand, a young warrior who hates to kill. A failure in his eyes and hers, he has one chance at redemption. And weapons are made for one purpose. Will Thorn forever be a tool in the hands of the powerful or can she carve her own path? Is there a place beyond legend for a woman with a blade?

Ce que les auditeurs disent de Half the World
Best book in the trilogy
This story and its two pov characters were fun. More character development and adventure than in the first book. The narration of the audiobook still dosn´t convince, although i got used to it a little.
Joe is always a great Read.
I can really recommend the Series. Many surprises wait for you here. 😉 Honest brutal clear cut and well told
