Publisher's Summary

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.
Narrated by Steven Pacey and featuring Joe Abercrombie.

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.

What was most disappointing about Joe Abercrombie’s story?

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

Excellent performance as usual.

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