    The follow-up to Mark Lawrence' s thrilling debut novel Prince of Thorns, King of Thorns continues the tale of antihero Jorg Ancrath. After wresting back control of his kingdom from those who murdered his family, Jorg sees the land erupt with hundreds of battles fought by lords and petty kings. More daunting still, he faces an enemy many times his own strength. Jorg may not be able to win this battle in a fair fight, but he wields a rage and cunning that just might even the odds.

    Stephen says: "Great sequel!"
    "A good continuation"

    What did you love best about King of Thorns?

    The main character begins an evolution in this book, I think. But stays cynical, ruthless and darkly human.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of King of Thorns?

    It was a fun ride of memories stored away and other wise forgotten


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good continuation of the first book, and does not leave a great cliff hanger, which I hate in some developing series. The protagonist develops in this book, but no wild hooks in personality, just seemed gradual, but un-completed. Really looking forward to the next book.
