Editorial Reviews

Review

Prince of Thorns is the best book I’ve read all year...[Lawrence] pulls you in and doesn’t let go.”—Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Skull Throne
 
“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. There is never a safe moment in Lawrence’s debut.”—Robert Redick, author of The River of Shadows
 
“Dark and relentless, the Prince of Thorns will pull you under and drown you in story. A two in the morning page turner.”—Robin Hobb, author of Assassin's Fate
 
“[A] morbidly gripping, gritty fantasy tale.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Vivid…smooth and compelling...gritty and full of wonder. This book is brilliant.”—Galaxy Book Reviews
 
“Disturbing, beautiful, chaotic, poetic, haunting, exhilarating.”—Fantasy Faction
 
“Without a doubt the most original and most memorable fantasy debut of 2011. It’s difficult to imagine how another book could top this one.”—RisingShadows.net
 
“2011 is turning into another year for impressive genre debuts, but at this point Prince of Thorns is arguably the most impressive and stunning...Highly recommended.”—SFFworld.com
 
“Defies the conventions of epic fantasy by invoking them only to take a savage delight in tearing them apart.”—Locus

 

About the Author

Mark Lawrence is a research scientist working on artificial intelligence. He is a dual national with both British and American citizenship, and has held secret-level clearance with both governments. At one point, he was qualified to say, “This isn’t rocket science—oh wait, it actually is.” He is the author of the Broken Empire trilogy (Prince of Thorns, King of Thorns, and Emperor of Thorns), the Red Queen’s War trilogy (Prince of Fools, The Liar’s Key, and The Wheel of Osheim) and the Book of the Ancestor series (Red Sister).
