Description

Lawrence brings his highly acclaimed epic fantasy series - The Broken Empire - to its devastating conclusion.


The path to the throne is broken - only the broken can walk it


The world is cracked and time has run through, leaving us clutching at the end days. These are the days that have waited for us all our lives. These are my days. I will stand before the Hundred and they will listen. I will take the throne no matter who stands against me, living or dead, and if I must be the last emperor then I will make of it such an ending.


This is where the wise man turns away. This is where the holy kneel and call on God. These are the last miles, my brothers. Don't look to me to save you. Run if you have the wit. Pray if you have the soul. Stand your ground if courage is yours. But don't follow me.


Follow me, and I will break your heart.

Review quote

Praise for Prince of Thorns:


'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


'[A] morbidly gripping, gritty fantasy tale.'
Publishers Weekly


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