By K. J. Parker (Electronic Book, 2013)

In a world he does not know, Poldarn's future is uncertain. Pursued by invisible enemies and haunted by the demons of his past, nobody can be trusted-not even himself, it seems. Attempting to piece together his own life from whatever scattered fragments he can find and dreams that hide as much as they reveal has brought him nothing but trouble. Now all he craves is peace. But will he find it on the island he believes to be his childhood home? Or will this place hold more terrors for him to confront?

  • "[Sharps] is a ripping good adventure yarn, laced with frequent barbed witticisms and ace sword fighting... Parker's settings and characterizations never miss a beat, and the intricate political interplay of intrigue is suspenseful almost to the last page." (Publishers Weekly).

  • "Courtly intrigue, intelligent prose, and complicated plotting." --- graspingforthewind.com on The Folding Knife

    "I have reviewed books before that I thought might someday be found to have achieved greatness.... But I am trying to be precise in my use of the word when I tell you that K.J. Parker is writing work after work that demands to be placed in that category. " --- Orson Scott Card on The Engineer Trilogy

    "It's a dark, bleak and fiercely intelligent portrait of the human condition." --- SFX on The Company

    "Imagine Lost meets The Italian Job...a masterfully planned and executed book, one that builds on ever-revealing characterization and back-story, leading slowly yet inexorably to its final conclusion." --- SFF World on The Company
