This 3-book set of paperback novels includes the below titles:
Half a King (ISBN 9780804178419): Prince Yarvi has vowed to regain a throne he never wanted. But first he must survive cruelty, chains, and the bitter waters of the Shattered Sea. And he must do it all with only one good hand. Born a weakling in the eyes of his father, Yarvi is alone in a world where a strong arm and a cold heart rule. He cannot grip a shield or swing an axe, so he must sharpen his mind to a deadly edge. Gathering a strange fellowship of the outcast and the lost, he finds they can do more to help him become the man he needs to be than any court of nobles could. But even with loyal friends at his side, Yarvi learns that his path may end as it began — in twists, and traps, and tragedy.
Half the World (ISBN 9780804178433): A girl desperate to avenge her dead father, Thorn lives to fight. But when she is accused of murder, only the deeply cunning Father Yarvi can deliver her from execution, and he has a price. Soon Thorn is crossing half the world to find allies against the ruthless High King — and learning harsh lessons of blood and deceit. Beside her on the journey is Brand, a young warrior who hates to kill and believes himself a failure — though a chance at redemption is at hand. And so is an opportunity for Thorn to no longer be a pawn in the hands of the powerful, and carve her own path once and for all.
Half a War (ISBN 9780804178464): Princess Skara has seen all she loved made blood and ashes, leaving her with only words. But the right words can be as deadly as any blade.
Father Yarvi has risen from crippled slave to king’s minister, using his cunning to make allies of old foes and broker an uneasy peace. But now the ruthless Grandmother Wexen has raised the greatest army since the elves made war on God — and installs as its leader a man who worships Death.
Thorn Bathu and the sword-bearer Raith are born to fight, and perhaps die. Brand the smith and Koll the wood-carver would rather stand in the light. But when Mother War spreads her iron wings, she may cast the whole Shattered Sea into darkness.
