The Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence


Started King of Thorns by Mark Lawrence this morning. Yay!

As if I need to praise this series. (There will be spoilers, so... turn away now.)
The Broken Empire trilogy is fantastic for a fantasy series. It is fantastic for a post-apocalyptic series. It is fantastic as a book, period. I can't sing its praises enough. The first one, Prince of Thorns was amazing, with a break neck pace, dry, dark humor, and a nuke. A fucking nuke.
Buy these. Run out now. Buy these now. You're still here. Go.
My son, three, saw the cover for King and wanted that read as a bedtime story. No. Maybe when he's four.
Mark Lawrence has a winner on his hands, here, and I'm excited to see what he'll come up with next.
