Editorial Reviews


“Drop whatever else you’re reading and start the Broken Empire trilogy...[Emperor of Thorns] is told in a vivid prose filled with profound reflection and brilliant metaphor. Every sentence is carefully crafted, a work of art and a pleasure to read.”—Peter V. Brett, international bestselling author

“Simply said, The Broken Empire is a brilliantly written series. Every sentence is just a pure joy to read and carefully crafted. Numerous words like wordsmith and modern fantasy poet spring to mind but you should just find it out for yourself. A perfect ending to a brilliant trilogy and an unpredictable, ruthless and poetic literary masterwork of a great mind.”—Fantasy Book Review

“A conclusion that is not only emotional and satisfying, but clever and unexpected, a fascinating twist within the concept of the narrative...Mark Lawrence has written a brilliant and enthralling tale—a trilogy that has gripped from the first scene to the very last.”—Starburst Magazine

“Lawrence ends his majestically epic and magical post-apocalyptic trilogy like it started: with bloody yet beautiful prose. He unwraps more clues to the past with dialogue that chills and characters you’d not want to meet in nightmares, where heroes are dark and evil fiends darkest of all. This book will go down as one of the best ever. Bravo!”—RT Book Reviews
