Description

Read by Steven Pacey, and featuring Joe Abercrombie narrating 'Freedom'. This audio edition also includes an interview with Steven and Joe.

The Union army may be full of bastards, but there's only one who thinks he can save the day singlehanded 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....

Sharp Ends combines previously published award-winning tales with exclusive new short stories. Violence explodes, treachery abounds and the words are as deadly as the weapons in this rogue's gallery of sideshows, backstories and sharp endings from the world of the First Law.

Should be read last, so things come full circle

It is a very good collection of stories that expends the context of the trilogy and the stand alone books. This is why in my opinion it should be read last. Charachthers are very well build and some familiar faces get another layer of their personality exposed. Comic relief is there, as expected and things fall into place nicely from a narrative perspective. Again should be read last to fully enjoy it (after the first trilogy and the stand alone books).

Kickass short stories

Should have been longer, and more stories about chev and javra to see what happened on the last crusade together. Also really liked the last story where it changed characters rapidly 😀

Not his best work

What did you like best about Sharp Ends? What did you like least?

Joe style ++
The stories --

What was most disappointing about Joe Abercrombie’s story?

He just does not write great short fiction. Not his fault.

Have you listened to any of Steven Pacey and Joe Abercrombie ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Excellent performance as usual.

Do you think Sharp Ends needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

NO...

So, so good!

It's been awhile since Joe's last book and with all the other books I have read in between, I had forgotten just how much I love his work! Just about everything else pales by comparison. I enjoyed catching up with these characters from previous stories, they feel like old friends.

Recommended for Abercrombie Fans

In my opinion, this Book can only be recommended and fully appreciated for & by those who read the First Law series by Joe Abercrombie (The Triology & the three stand alone books). This book contains a series of short stories (some interconnected) of this world where some of the characters from the novels are revisited and some new interesting ones are introduced. Sadly, some of those stories wich are dedicated to two characters reads a little bit like fragments of a novel that could it have become. Nontheless I liked it very much. All the Joe Abercrombie-ingredients like the black humor, the conan'ish Fantasy Style and the good character-writing you find in here, voiced excellently by the narrator Steven Pacey, and one chapter passably by Joe Abercrombie himself ;)

Welcome to Joes directors cut and miniseries

It's like I say in my title... Sharp ends has a lot of the feel I get from watching cutscenes and mini series from a TV production...
And a whole new plotline.
I enjoyed it immensely

The best Fantasy I've ever seen!

As always the symbiosis between Joe Abercrombie and Steven Pacey is just unbelievably immersive. A world coming to life within your head!

Sprecher Super, Geschichten so la la

Der Sprecher ist wie immer super!

Die Geschichten sind gut aber ich hatte gehofft, mehr von Sand dan Gloktar zu erfahren. Er hat zwar seinen Auftritt aber dieser ist doch recht kurz geraten. Aus der gesamten Serie ist er der absolut spannendste und interessanteste Charakter.
