The follow-up to Mark Lawrence's thrilling debut novel Prince of Thorns, King of Thorns continues the tale of antihero Jorg Ancrath. After wresting back control of his kingdom from those who murdered his family, Jorg sees the land erupt with hundreds of battles fought by lords and petty kings. More daunting still, he faces an enemy many times his own strength. Jorg may not be able to win this battle in a fair fight, but he wields a rage and cunning that just might even the odds.

    " Much better than the first. "

    " I give 5 stars, because there aren' t any more to give. My favorite 'new' author now. His use of language borders on poety. While reading I catch myself looking around, unable to believe I'm the only one experiencing it. I have never thought I'd be saying anything like this before, but anything else wouldn't be honest. I wish he had more books in the marketplace, so I could rush out and read more of his writting. Obviously, I am looking forward to the next one. "

    " Better than the first book, which took too long in developing the character into someone you'd like to read about. Sure, he was pretty badass - but I didn't like him in the first book. "

    " The PoV and prose sells this for me - and that's even before going into the character 'The King' Honorous Jorg Ancrath. It's different, and no it's not for everyone. If you want shining heroes on horseback riding in to save the day...go elsewhere. If you want bloody minded blackhearts willing to do whatever to get their way...then read on! "

    " Well. A definite step up from the previous book (better character development and interesting situations, primarily). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 1/20/2014

    " I rarely review anything, and I always aim to keep it short. The characters fantastic. The language is beautiful. The story is grim and compelling. I eagerly await the third book. "

    " Too bad Mark cannot write these as fast as they are read. Could not put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 1/2/2013

    " Amazing book, love this world and its characters. Its a horrible cruel world that makes perfect sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heath | 10/17/2012

    " I just could not get into this book. It is written well and it has some great one-liners. But those few great lines are not worth reading this entire book, at least not to me. It's a hit and miss. Either you love it or it just does nothing for you. Good luck. "
