There's more than enough reviews about this book that dive deep into the protagonist's likeability or lack thereof. I'm not going to go there - if you've decided to pick this up, you probably already know most of it by now, and you have to make your own decision. In any case: Did I enjoy it? I thi...

Auf die Frage hin, welche Autor_innen Mark Lawrence inspirierten, seinen Debütroman „Prince of Thorns“ zu schreiben, antwortete er „A Clockwork Orange“ von Anthony Burgess. Hätte ich das gewusst, hätte ich vielleicht eher zu diesem Roman gegriffen, denn ich liebe die Geschichte des zum Gutmenschen k...

I know what you're thinking right now: WHO ARE YOU? Yes. I came back. I am alive...kinda. In case you guys do remember me,let me start with the reason I've been missing for so much time. The reason is a huge mix of work,breakdowns and a car accident that BROKE MY ARM AGAIN. IT'S THE SECOND TIME ...

4 starsThis was a fun read. I was looking for something to fill the GoT void, and while I don't think this is anything like Game of Thrones, I did think it was a fast, exciting read. Jorg is an interesting character because he drifts more in the evil column than the good. He's unpredictable, bitte...

The only thing that Jorg desires more than killing people on a whim is revenge. He wants reparation and he will do anything to get it. He wants to get over the nightmare that haunts every moment of his life, but no matter how much he tries, the nightmare repeats itself in his mind over and over agai...

I originally read Prince of Thorns in 2011. I just re-read it (3/15) for the Group Challenge for the r/Fantasy discussion group. My original review left a lot out, so here's a new review.“Tell me, tutor,' I said. 'Is revenge a science, or an art?” The world has been left a deserted wasteland after t...

Not a bad book, but the sheer psychopathy of the main character, Jorg, is just chilling. The whole country seems to be full of psychopaths too.Not bad but I have no urge to finish out this series.

This was something completely different. I'd had this book and it's two sequels on my 'to acquire' list for a while and was pleased when my son gave me the whole trilogy for Christmas. I had been warned, however, that the first book, at least, was very dark and the main character not very likable,...

I thought I'd have liked this book better. I wished I had. But mostly I'll file it in my "OK" category.The ruthlessness of the world depicted here was quite appealing (despite being appaling, yes that's so totally intended, and I'm not even ashamed). One may despise the protagonist and his band of "...

First off. This series is what most people would call grimdark. All three books, especially the first are very bleak and the characters described have few, if any, redeeming features. The story follows a young teenager who roams the earth in a post-apocalyptic aftermath (a thousand year prior). Ra...
