I am not rating this book for the simple reason of not finishing it. I like Grimdark a lot but for whatever reason this book did not connect with. I struggled with the first one and reluctantly picked this one up. I don't have to like your characters but you have to give me a reason to keep reading. I couldn't find any and decided to move on. I won't punish the book with a bad rating because I think the author can write. it just wasn't for me.

Same thoughts as I had in book one. But less violence toward women and a whole lot of really beautiful prose. Heavy on the philosophy and existential crisis, but no lack of action! I also love the time weave in this one... it's hard to get that right, but Lawrence did it beautifully here. It'll be interesting to see where Jorg ends up, so I'm on to the final installment! ( )

After going through the whole series it is very hard to write a review of just one book so I decided to make one for all three - Prince, King and Emperor of Thorns (The Broken Empire)

What Mark Lawrence has done in this series is just amazing. I started reading “Prince of Thorns" half- hearted with only one review given by my wife :) She told me I should definitely give this book a chance as it was something I had never read before. After finishing it (within a week) I have to say she was right! The story itself is great, well written and thought out and Jorg is an exceptional character! I’m 100% sure you will hate that guy at the beginning… then you will start understanding him. And exactly at the time when you start to like him BOOM Mark comes up with an idea which makes you hate him again :) It not just Jorg of course. The rest of characters in this book are also great and memorable. They really complete Jorg’s story and make the read even more interesting. And the way Mark goes with the story… Really, really good book!

I cannot spot big differences between “Prince” and following it “King” and “Emperor”. I read some reviews of these two books but just out of curiosity. When you finish book one, especially such a great one like “Prince”, you do not really need any review to convince you to grab another one. Yes, it is truth that you can never be sure if next book is as good as previous one and if the story is not going to become boring, predictable or just stupid… Well it is certainly NOT what happened here. All books in this series are just great and each one complete the other. I have to admit I had no clue what was going to happen at the end of the story and, unlike some other readers I read the reviews of, I did not guess who the Dead King really was… Maybe if I had had some time to think about that when I was reading I would have guessed, but the truth is that I just devoured these books :) I had great time with all of them and I’m sure I will read that story again :) I own now all of them on my Kindle and printed versions were already ordered :)

Every book lover knows that feeling - when you finish reading an exceptionally good book you feel empty knowing there is nothing more. The ending of “The Broken Empire” brought me such filling… I’m just happy Mark keeps woking hard and there are new books, new characters coming :)

Thank you Mark for these books!!!!

One of countless great quotes from The Broken Empire:

“I think maybe we die every day. Maybe we're born new each dawn, a little changed, a little further on our own road. When enough days stand between you and the person you were, you're strangers. Maybe that's what growing up is. Maybe I have grown up.” ( )

Some outlandish things happen, that are quite ridiculous, neh?

Oh yea, this is fantasy after all. Very engaging, and an interesting take on the medieval world in some future time.

4.5 stars if I could. ( )

In genre reading I tend to look first to story or character, pushing aside the need for beautiful prose and clever structures. I want to be transported to another world, to experience the impossible. King of Thorns does this, but it also does so much more,
