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.

Recommended for Abercrombie Fans
In my opinion, this Book can only be recommended and fully appreciated for & by those who read the First Law series by Joe Abercrombie (The Triology & the three stand alone books). This book contains a series of short stories (some interconnected) of this world where some of the characters from the novels are revisited and some new interesting ones are introduced. Sadly, some of those stories wich are dedicated to two characters reads a little bit like fragments of a novel that could it have become. Nontheless I liked it very much. All the Joe Abercrombie-ingredients like the black humor, the conan'ish Fantasy Style and the good character-writing you find in here, voiced excellently by the narrator Steven Pacey, and one chapter passably by Joe Abercrombie himself ;)

Welcome to Joes directors cut and miniseries
It's like I say in my title... Sharp ends has a lot of the feel I get from watching cutscenes and mini series from a TV production...
And a whole new plotline.
I enjoyed it immensely
