The Red Queen is dreaded by the kings of the Broken Empire as they dread no other.

Her grandson Jalan Kendeth - womaniser, gambler and all-out cad - is tenth in line to the throne. While his grandmother shapes the destiny of millions, Prince Jalan pursues his debauched pleasures.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A savage voice which is telling you a good jest while trying to drown you in story'
ROBERT LOW (Author of the Kingdom Series and the Oathsworn Series)

'Really excellent, gritty fantasy - I'm trying to avoid comparison with GAME OF THRONES, but I'm afraid it's right there. But funnier. Very funny indeed'
YA and Carnegie-shortlisted author ANTHONY MCGOWAN

Praise for The Broken Empire:

'Dark and relentless, Prince of Thorns will pull you under and drown you in story. A two-in-the-morning page turner. Absolutely stunning... jaw-dropping' ROBIN HOBB

'Excellent - on a par with George R.R. Martin' CONN IGGULDEN

'Lawrence's poetic prose is amazing, far and away the best of the modern fantasy authors' PETER V. BRETT

'A hard-edged tale of survival and conquest in a brutal medieval world, well told and very compelling' TERRY BROOKS

“Brilliant start to a new series”

This book takes what was great about the broken empire trilogy and gives us a main protagonist that has a completely opposite personality. Some may not like him but I for one think love the new character as he shows... More

“Dreadful - a terrible book”

This book is awful. The main problem is the central character - which is not helped by the book being written in the first person. Writing in the first person brings a much greater sense of kinship with the... More
