Quotes & Awards

  • “Dark and relentless, Prince of Thorns will pull you under and drown you in story. A two-in-the-morning page turner. Jaw-dropping.”

    Robin Hobb, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Vivid…full of wonder. This book is brilliant.” Galaxy Book Reviews
  • Prince of Thorns is one of this year’s most anticipated fantasy debuts; and now I know why! It’s incredible.”

    Civilian-Reader.blogspot.com

  • “This is a lean, cold knife-thrust of a novel, a revenge fantasy anchored on the compelling voice and savage purpose of its titular Prince…Thoroughly recommended.”

    Neal Asher, British science fiction writer

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kara | 2/17/2014

    " Will dwell on this and then review... maybe 2.5 stars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shasta | 1/8/2014

    " There's antihero and then there's an unlikable, unsympathetic character that you can't root for. Unfortunately, Jorg is the latter and therefore I couldn't like this book as much as I wanted to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Billy | 1/3/2014

    " This was a fun, fast read filled with lot's of pulpy violence, dark humor and self loathing. If you liked The First Law series you'll probably like this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jjlupa | 12/30/2013

    " That is Glen Cook level savagery. You probably should stay awry from this unless you can take some anti-hero in your books. Still I loved it for it's rawness. It seems like you would need some courage to publish something like this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cory nielsen | 12/12/2013

    " great book, a little on the dark side. Not for kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gemma | 11/30/2013

    " I loved this novel, I thought it was great. If you can get through the first few chapters and actually get into the story, it's amazing! It was written really well and I can't wait for the next book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 11/13/2013

    " Again with the "bad boys who can't help but be good". Brilliant magical system, brilliant plot, brilliant foreshadowing, brilliant characters, even if it's a little bloody at times. Anxiously awaiting the end of the trilogy, and hoping to all higher powers that be that this will only be a trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 9/6/2013

    " Having a hard time putting it down and getting some work done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten Forrester | 7/5/2013

    " Page 73.....I'm loving it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 KÄ™stutis Kisielis | 1/29/2013

    " Good book. I feel David Gemmell influence. Not heroic side, but bloody side. Also idea about our future (just like Jon Shannow series). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Markham | 1/29/2013

    " An interesting book indeed. A character that you probably shouldn't like but you have to see things from his point of view as there isn't any other choice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andre | 11/28/2012

    " A teenage-prince-coming-for-his-crown story that has enough differences with the usual take on it to be an interesting approach/experience. I don't know if this will translate into a serie that will keep me reading (how will the story/characters evolve?) but Prince of thorns was a good start. "
