    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....

    If you could sum up Emperor of Thorns in three words, what would they be?

    Visceral, Methodical, Brilliant


    What did you like best about this story?

    In this story we see Jorg as an adult and Mark Lawrence does a good job of conveying the characters growth between the novels. At first I was a little put out by some of the story taking place 5 years prior. But after a while, you realize that the tale he is telling is from five years ago but his recounting is from the adult point of view. It is very well done. Overall a great book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    "Dear Lady, I killed them from youngest child to oldest woman. And when I was done, I blunted three axes dismembering their corpses. I am Jorg of Ancrath, I burned ten thousand in Gelleth and didnt think it to many."


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

    Yes!
