    Jorg would be emperor. It is a position not to be gained by the sword but rather by vote. And never in living memory has anyone secured a majority of the vote, leaving the Broken Empire long without a leader. Jorg has plans to change that - one way or the other. He’s uncovered even more of the lost technology of the land, and he won’t hesitate to use it. But he soon finds an adversary standing in his way, a necromancer unlike any he has ever faced - a figure hated and feared even more than himself: the Dead King. The boy who would rule all may have finally met his match....

    Just Marvel Me says: "Entire Adoration"
    "A very fitting climax to a great series"

    Story
    Where does Emperor of Thorns rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At position 1. You finally understand Jorg, and learn about his traumas. You really feel for him, although he is a complete bastard in most of the book. There are some really strong scenes, and they put events in the previous books in a new light. I also really like the non-sentimental way lifes of main characters are handled. Take brother Michael for instance, after surviving great trials, he gets hit by an arrow in a random skirmish. And that's kind of the end of that. Death and changes come quickly, and no one is immune. The story arc was very well thought out as well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really liked Jorg, In this book, one comes to understand why he is as he is. He is maturing, and for the first time starts to question himself in more fundamental ways, Rike is unfortunately not as visible as before.


    Have you listened to any of James Clamp’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. Good performance, although I preferred the narrator in the first two books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.
