A late reveal that questions his 'agency' might leave room for redemption, but on reflection he finds he has no regrets. Well, I do, for sticking through to the end to find nothing redeeming about this story of a murder-hobo seeking revenge and a throne, for no explained reason. The author is a talented writer but his story leaves much to be desired - try 'Best Served Cold' by Abercrombie for a solid revenge tale, and scoundrels you can both love and hate.
I was very confused when I started the book. I thought it was supposed to be about a prince trying to recover his throne. However as I read the first chapter it seemed to be about a murderer and rapist.
Then I started chapter two and it was the same POV from the same villain.
If it had been an unknown author, I probably would have stopped at that point. So I kept reading. And it kept getting better.
And better. The writing is excellent. The story is engrossing.
The world building is intriguing. Lawrence writes terrific action scenes to top it off. Be forewarned, the book is very grim and very dark. Prince Jorg starts off as a completely unsympathetic character and at the start I wasn't sure I was going to like this book.
The more I read though, the further I got sucked in.
There are times he's difficult to understand, he goes from cold to hot at the blink of an eye, he's surrounded himself with the worst of the worst and he takes lives without flinching. Sounds fairly horrible, right? As you read on it becomes clear that a childhood tragedy and the manipulations of magic have had a huge hand in shaping him to be who he is and while it's not always "okay" it's understandable.
The best part of his personality is his wit, in my opinion. At this point I can't wait to read the next book in the series because I just have to know what happens next. The writing is solid and the characters are compelling although I do think our anti-hero was probably written about four years younger than he should be considering his abilities.
If you're looking for a new fantasy series consider this one, bearing in mind that the world of the Prince of Thorns is a brutal, bloody place. After having read both this one and the second in the series, I feel like this one had a much stronger second act but at the same time a weaker third act.
Not saying it didn't complete the story in a way that fit the narrative, but there was a twist that was created as a result of the post-modern out of order story telling he tends to use which didn't deliver as much as it could have.
The prose is unique and less purple-prose than the second book by far. This all that, I recommend any fan of fantasy to read this. I already have the third one in the Broken Empire Series started.
Not bad. Jorg is an interesting MC, certainly unique in that his sort of character-type in other stories is always the side guy or villain rather than the main protagonist in this one, which is the point of course. And rather than turn evil, like some Star Wars prequel story, Jorg was always this way.
I will say this, Mark puts a lot of effort into the way he writes and how Jorg comes across through words, and I have to admire his ambition, but I couldn't help but feel like Jorg was just perpetually lucky rather than clever.
