Lawrence brings the Broken Empire series 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.


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’

‘Excellent – on a par with George R.R. Martin’

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

‘Lawrence’s poetic prose is amazing, far and away the best of the modern fantasy authors’

About the author

Mark Lawrence is married with four children, one of whom is severely disabled. His day job is as a research scientist focused on various rather intractable problems in the field of artificial intelligence. He has held secret level clearance with both US and UK governments. At one point he was qualified to say 'this isn't rocket science … oh wait, it actually is'.
Between work and caring for his disabled child, Mark spends his time writing, playing computer games, tending an allotment, brewing beer, and avoiding DIY.

    I loved and hated these three books in equal measure, to me that is the best kind of literature.

    I don't think I've ever been engrossed in a book series so much. Read from book 1-3 in less then a week. Might do it again..

    This is a fantastic read, the mix of old and new, supernatural and mechanical is beautifully done. Ending it on a high note is a master stroke.

    By Womboski
    This book, the finale to the broken empire is dark, twisted and most of all full of power and enchantment. If you've ever held a dark thought Jorg will show you up 10-fold.
  • Great final book to awesome trilogy

    Unique style of writing kept me hooked since the prince of thorns and Jorg would have to be one of the best main characters ever dreamt up! Left me wanting more! Can not wait to see the authors next creation. I hope he sticks in the fantasy genre
