Publisher's Summary

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.

Humorous, witty, violent.

Humorous, witty, violent.

Joe Abercrombie's books set in the world of the 'First Law' have it all, great characters and storylines brought to life by Steven Pacey, who, in my opinion, is the greatest audiobook narrator in the business.

The combination of Abercrombie's writing and Pacey's narrative always leaves me impatiently waiting for the next Instalment. I have trawled through audibles catalog, hoping to find something that comes close to these, but sadly, nothing quite hits the mark.

Fantastic stories, fantastically narrated

I've spent the last week in a state of bliss, with a smile on my face, drinking in the world of The First Law, so amazingly delivered by Steven Pacey. Great collection of stories, brimming with humour, which kept me smirking, and laughing out loud on busy trains; I got odd looks, but I pitied them for not being party to the witty retorts & gags.
