Sharp Ends was introduction to the World of the First Law. There’s ‘grimdark’ fantasy done well (and often) in this series of short stories.
For me, as a newcomer, it was a chance to meet interesting people and match as many of them die. It was a chance to meet interesting people and wonder, when they managed to survive, what their role is in the main series. It was a chance to explore a dangerous world.
In this exclusive extract from the book, from a short story called Wrong Place, Wrong Time you also get a chance to take a look. You can download the first chunk of the story over at Geek Syndicate and the next, without download, at Upcoming 4 Me.
Or, if you don’t want to track down extracts, you can buy Sharp Ends: Stories from the World of The First Law from Amazon today.
