Prince Yarvi has vowed to regain a throne he never wanted. But first he must survive cruelty, chains and the bitter waters of the Shattered Sea itself. And he must do it all with only one good hand. The deceived will become the deceiver. Born a weakling in the eyes of his father, Yarvi is alone in a world where a strong arm and a cold heart rule. He cannot grip a shield or swing an axe, so he must sharpen his mind to a deadly edge. The betrayed will become the betrayer. Gathering a strange fellowship of the outcast and the lost, he finds they can do more to help him become the man he needs to be than any court of nobles could. Will the usurped become the usurper? But even with loyal friends at his side, Yarvi's path may end as it began - in twists, and traps and tragedy.… (mer)

Not as dark as Abercrombie's previous books, and it suffers for it. The motivations of the characters are not super compelling, and the characters are not as deep. ( )

I read an interview about halfway through reading this book where Mr. Abercrombie mentions it's part Lion King and part Odessey. It's absolutely true from when Simba, sorry Yarvi, is thrown from a tower by his deceitful uncle (this is at the beginning) to Nothing being the name of one of his companions. Still, he manages to make the story fresh with a big twist at the end.
His characters are the best part of his books and I enjoyed Yarvi and his associates, whether shipmates or enemies. It's a fun read, not especially fantasy except for some mention of elves, but still interesting. ( )

Medieval fantasy without magic. The main character is well developed and interesting, and the plot moves quickly. A number of the characters and events are fairly standard fantasy tropes, but woven smoothly into the story. And while a few of the twists were predictable, it had a few that were harder to spot in advance.

Overall, I very much enjoyed this book. It is violent, graphically at times, but far less so than some of Abercrombie's other work. ( )

I received an ARC of this novel through Netgalley.com by the publisher, Random House Publishing Group - Del Rey Spectra, in exchange for a review.

I have been a fan of Joe Abercrombie since his THE FIRST LAW series. That being said, I dove right into this story as soon as I got my hands on it, and I was not disappointed. This is a shorter than usual tale that Abercrombie shares with us, of the revenge sworn to be taken by a prince who has a malformed hand. Thrust into the King's throne suddenly due to the murder of his father, and older brother, Yarvi is introduced to regicide, though barely escapes with his life. Once he escapes, he is caught by slavers, and his tale begins.

This is the basic story of revenge for the death of one's father (and family, plus being the rulers of the land), added in with the tale of growing up handicapped in a world where being less than hale is as good as being dead. Yarvi's tale shares how his training for the Ministry (similar to a priesthood, giving up all claims/family, yet serving as an advisor for a king) helped him escape his death, make friends, and complete his revenge oath.

This story was shorter than previous novels by Abercrombie, and thus was a pretty fast read. Being shorter in length, the characters were still pretty well developed and the story contained enough plot twists to keep me wondering how, and when, it would all come full circle. Another good story by Joe. ( )

Another winner from Joe Abercrombie. Great characters and story. Can't wait for the next one. ( )
