In the final novel in the Broken Empire Trilogy, the boy who would rule all may have finally met his match...
King Jorg Ancrath is twenty now—and king of seven nations. His goal—revenge against his father—has not yet been realized, and the demons that haunt him have only grown stronger. Yet no matter how tortured his path, he intends to take the next step in his upward climb.
Jorg would be emperor. It is a position not to be gained by the sword but rather by vote. And never in living memory has anyone secured a majority of the vote, leaving the Broken Empire long without a leader. Jorg plans to change that. He’s uncovered the lost technology of the land, and he won’t hesitate to use it.
But he soon finds an adversary standing in his way, a necromancer unlike any he has ever faced—a figure hated and feared even more than himself: the Dead King.
Customer ReviewsSee All
One of the best series I’ve read, period. Joins Erikson, Martin, Herbert, and Cook on my shelf for re-reading.
Dark and glorious
This series is intentionally conflicted and dark. It definitely should not be read by kids. It’s vile enough at times that it probably shouldn’t be read by anyone. The corruption permeating the story and the hero are disturbing but resonate. The truth of a hero that is doing it all to feed his own appetite for revenge and glory is a story not often told and never told this well.
How it should be!
What an incredible story. Written by a truly talented author who isn’t afraid to give the world a hero who is as flawed, dark, yet real human being. Thank you for loving your characters and readers enough to give your work the end it deserved where so many others have failed. I can’t say enough good things about this series, so I won’t keep trying.
