From the critically acclaimed author of THE BROKEN EMPIRE series comes a brilliant new epic fantasy series, THE RED QUEEN'S WAR.

I'm a liar and a cheat and a coward, but I will never, ever, let a friend down. Unless of course not letting them down requires honesty, fair play or bravery.

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
