Ngā whakaahuatanga whakarei nā Syndetics:

Mark Lawrence brings to a thrilling close his epic trilogy of a boy who would be king, a king who would desire an empire--and an empire on the edge of destruction…

King Jorg Ancrath is twenty now--and king of seven nations.

His goal--revenge against his father--has not yet been realized, and the demons that haunt him have only grown stronger. Yet no matter how tortured his path, he intends to take the next step in his upward climb.

For there is only one power worth wielding…absolute power.

Jorg would be emperor. It is a position not to be gained by the sword but rather by vote. And never in living memory has anyone secured a majority of the vote, leaving the Broken Empire long without a leader. Jorg has plans to change that--one way or the other. He's uncovered even more of the lost technology of the land, and he won't hesitate to use it.

But he soon finds an adversary standing in his way, a necromancer unlike any he has ever faced--a figure hated and feared even more than himself: the Dead King.

The boy who would rule all may have finally met his match...

Desiring to be emperor of the Broken Empire, young King Jorg Ancrath of the seven nations must face an adversary standing in his way, a necromancer unlike any he has ever challenged -- a figure hated and feared even more than himself: the Dead King.

Library Journal Review

In a far-future Europe, only relics of technology remain and dark magic dominates a pitiful and war-torn feudal world as a ruthless, damaged boy attempts domination of the scraps left behind. Lawrence's (King of Thorns) trilogy ender finds Jorg at 20, already king of seven kingdoms, ready to reembark on his quest for revenge and eager to take charge of all Europe. This is a complex tale, dependent on previous episodes. Parallel stories occupy present and past, with additional flashbacks in dreams and minor scenes with ancillary viewpoint characters. The story is violent, but not gratuitously so. James Clamp wends his way through the many twists and turns with an understated dramatic performance. The careful listener will be well rewarded. VERDICT Of particular interest to those waiting for another episode of George R.R. Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire," this trilogy belongs in most fantasy collections. ["Fans of epic and military fantasy should enjoy this tale," read the review of the Ace: Berkley hc, LJ 8/13.]--Janet Martin, Southern Pines P.L., NC (c) Copyright 2014.
