"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?" Download and start listening now!

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

    " 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 | 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 | 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 | 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 | 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. "
