| Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie |
Finally! We have another cover reveal and oh my, this really is a good ‘un. Gollancz and Lord Grimdark himself have recently revealed the UK artwork for Sharp Ends, a collection of short stories from The First Law Universe, and I fully expect to be overwhelmed by a multitude of bastards, rogues and dubious characters. And if that wasn’t enough, we also get to return to one of my favourite characters (from one of my favourite authors) of all time – Sand dan Glokta. Just take a look at this beautiful cover… it might just be my favourite of Abercrombie’s ever expanding repertoire.

| Synopsis |
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 . . .
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 side-shows, back-stories, and sharp endings from the world of the First Law.
