Review quote

`There are special rewards in store here for readers of the Broken Empire series. Highly recommended' ROBIN HOBB `Mark Lawrence is the best thing to happen to fantasy in recent years' PETER V. BRETT `Marks an unbroken and steady ascent to the top of my favourite-fantasy pile. Lawrence gets better with each book he writes' MYKE COLE `Reminds me of when I first discovered Gemmell and Hobb and I can't wait for the next instalment' DAVID CHADWICK `The brisk adventure and black magic will leave readers eager for the next chapter in the series' Publisher's Weekly `Lawrence improves with every book he writes and if he keeps on like this, we may have to turn the ratings system up to eleven. Magnificent, and highly recommended' Starburst Magazine `Mark Lawrence should be commended on another excellent book of The Red Queen's War trilogy that gives enough information to make the reader want more' Impulse Gamer `The dialogue is a humorous, frightening lullaby that flawlessly depicts this dark, disturbing universe and its meticulously constructed characters, both friends and fiends' RT Book Reviewsshow more

About Mark Lawrence

Mark Lawrence was born in Champagne-Urbanan, Illinois, to British parents but moved to the UK at the age of one. He went back to the US after taking a PhD in mathematics at Imperial College to work on a variety of research projects including the `Star Wars' missile defence programme. Returning to the UK, he has worked mainly on image processing and decision/reasoning theory. He says he never had any ambition to be a writer so was very surprised when a half-hearted attempt to find an agent turned into a global publishing deal overnight. His first trilogy, The Broken Empire, has been universally acclaimed as a ground-breaking work of fantasy. Mark is married, with four children, and lives in Bristol.show more
