BOOK ONE IN THE BROKEN EMPIRE TRILOGY

“Prince of Thorns
deserves attention as the work of an iconoclast who seems determined to turn that familiar thing, Medievalesque Fantasy Trilogy, entirely on its head.”—Locus 


When he was nine, he watched as his mother and brother were killed before him. By the time he was thirteen, he was the leader of a band of bloodthirsty thugs. By fifteen, he intends to be king...

It’s time for Prince Honorous Jorg Ancrath to return to the castle he turned his back on, to take what’s rightfully his. Since the day he hung pinned on the thorns of a briar patch and watched Count Renar’s men slaughter his mother and young brother, Jorg has been driven to vent his rage. Life and death are no more than a game to him—and he has nothing left to lose.

But treachery awaits him in his father’s castle. Treachery and dark magic. No matter how fierce his will, can one young man conquer enemies with power beyond his imagining?

4.5 stars

Usually I don’t like these fantasy war and gore books, but the anti-hero is addicting and downright scary. Would have been a 5 star but for the raping and burning people alive parts, thankfully short lived.

WotW hole.

This is a very good read, albeit very dark, but with under tones that emphasize humanity, especially towards the end. Very good storyline, complex plot, interesting style, entertaining dialogue, and strong action. If you liked The Name of the Wind, The Warded Man, or the Night Angel trilogy, you will enjoy this book.

Horrific

Literally opens with the lead 13 year old boy raping two girls and then setting them on fire.
