The second book in the Broken Empire series, Lawrence takes his young anti-hero one step closer to his grand ambition. To reach greatness you must step on bodies, and many brothers lie trodden in my wake. I've walked from pawn to player and I'll win this game of ours, though the cost of it may drown the world in blood... The land burns with the fires of a hundred battles as lords and petty kings fight for the Broken Empire. The long road to avenge the slaughter of his mother and brother has shown Prince Honorous Jorg Ancrath the hidden hands behind this endless war. He saw the game and vowed to sweep the board. First though he must gather his own pieces, learn the rules of play, and discover how to break them. A six nation army, twenty thousand strong, marches toward Jorg's gates, led by a champion beloved of the people. Every decent man prays this shining hero will unite the empire and heal its wounds. Every omen says he will. Every good king knows to bend the knee in the face of overwhelming odds, if only to save their people and their lands. But King Jorg is not a good king. Faced by an enemy many times his strength Jorg knows that he cannot win a fair fight. But playing fair was never part of Jorg's game plan.

Library Journal Review

When he was nine years old, Prince Jorg vowed to avenge the murders of his mother and brother and to punish his father for failing to do so. Now, at 18, King Jorg rules in his father's place and must concentrate on holding his kingdom against invading armies who greatly outnumber his own forces. When he discovers a hidden chamber beneath his castle, Jorg realizes that he possesses the means to wield great power against his enemies, if he dares to take the risk. VERDICT The first volume of Lawrence's trilogy, Prince of Thorns, was an Internet sensation before it saw print. This new installment in the life and times of Jorg Ancrath features the true coming-of-age of a warrior king. Reminiscent in tone of Glen Cook's "Chronicles of the Black Company" series, this dark and gritty fantasy adventure should please fans of military fantasy and no-frills action. (c) Copyright 2012.
