  2. 3.5 5 StarsEmperor of Thorns marks the conclusion of The Broken Empire trilogy and I must say, despite my lukewarm and dislike towards the first and second book, I end up enjoying the last book in the trilogy than I expected.Jorg, now 20 years old, is on his way to become the Emperor of the Broken Empire but there s a looming threat that s coming for him and the Broken Empire itself, the Dead King EoT managed to wrap the main storyline wonderfully, the entire climax of the trilogy between Jorg [...]

  3. I failed my brother I hung in the thorns and let him die and the world has been wrong since that night I failed him, and though I ve let many brothers die since, that first pain has not diminished The best part of me still hangs there, on those thorns Life can tear away what s vital to a man, hook it from him, one scrap at a time, leaving him empty handed and beggared by the years Every man has his thorns, not of him, but in him, deep as bones The scars of the briar mark me, a calligraphy of vio [...]

  4. You may be wondering why how I am reviewing a book that is not due to be published for several months The answer is I couldn t wait, in ways than one.I ve written about Mark Lawrence before I reviewed the first book in this series, Prince of Thorns, on my blog a couple years ago I enjoyed it so much I happily offered quotes to Mark s publishers to be used on the second volume, King of Thorns, even before I d had a chance to read it I secured an advance copy of KoT, but again was too busy to get [...]

  5. Mark Lawrence likes to claim that authors are not their characters, but I think we need to look at the facts.Jorg Ancrath 1 Single mindedly takes the world by storm.2 Spreads his wit among other things, blood and guts included.3 Flips everything on its head, traditions, magic, you name it.4 Encourages blasphemy and the slaughter of innocents.5 Will stop at nothing to reach his goals of claiming the title of Emperor.Mark Lawrence 1 Single mindedly takes the fantasy world by storm.2 Spreads HIS wi [...]

  6. Emperor of Thorns is Mark Lawrence s greatest work up to date The Wheel of Osheim is out If i come back from Congression and I m still not Emperor, I m not going to be in the mood for excuses Emperor of Thorns, just like it s predecessors, is featuring two different POVs of the same character One in the past, covering the time period between the events of the second and third book, while the other, in the present, is following Jorg s tale in the path of conquering and uniting the Broken Empire, [...]

  7. Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths ReviewsPrince of Thorns was a seminal work in the fantasy genre Jorg Ancrath a sociopathic protagonist who became both loved and reviled seemingly in equal measure The cry for More Thorns overpowering Quickly, Mark Lawrence turned Thorn s into an epic trilogy a rousing tale of madness, mayhem, machinations, and meditations on the human condition And with this final volume, the author has gifted readers with a fitting conclusion, remaining true to Jorg s destruc [...]

  8. Dark times call for dark choices Choose me Jorg of Ancrath, the Prince of Thorns, the boy who would be emperor, is back at long last Our maliciously fascinating antihero is finally on his way to the holy city of Vyene Escorted by the legendary Gilden Guard, Jorg is ready to make his way to Congression, the gathering of all the Hundred taking place every four years where they come together in the emperor s palace to choose who among them shall take up the ever vacant throne of the Broken Empire.B [...]

  9. reread 09 07 NEW WEEK SAME CRAZY GUY I might be predictable Sorry about that Book 1 Prince of Thorns Book 2 King of Thorns Original review February 2015Sorry guys I thought about some fancy way to write this review and it seems that I just couldn t Maybe, one day, when I ll reread it because of course I m going to reread it, I mean, JORG for Pete s sake, maybe this day I ll be able to find, I don t know, a A travel map review of his journey through Europe, because YES, I totally sought the place [...]

  10. I am completely blown away What a great ending to a great series Jorg is on his way to Congression knowing he must become Emperor and unite the Hundred against the Dead King Jorg knows that only united will they be able to stand against him.As with the other books in the series, the author bounces between several time periods to tell this story The process creates a captivating world dominated with strong characters you can t help but enjoy Jorg than any other shines I was never sure if I loved [...]

  11. A wonderful, surprising, and worthy ending to the Thorns trilogy If you ve followed Jorg Ancrath through the first two books, it shouldn t shock you that Jorg does not give you the ending you might expect, but it s an ending that makes perfect sense As with the past two volumes, this book jumps around in time, from Jorg s journey to the seat of the empire to vote for a new emperor, back to his earlier journeys through Hispania and Afrique in search of power and answers Looming on the horizon is [...]

  12. This novel helped me reach a new milestone in my life, and that is to enjoy listening to audiobooks I ve written several reviews of how much I hated audiobooks, but I believe James Clamp helped me realize how amazing audiobooks are Add in the fact that this is an amazing novel with a terrific plot and characters Kudos to Mark Lawrence for ending a trilogy the right way.My journey with this trilogy was rough I enjoyed the first novel very much, but the second left a bitter taste in my mouth It to [...]

  13. This was a fantastic conclusion to what has turned out to be a very good series It was a fantastically entertaining ride and Mark Lawrence succeeded in wrapping up all the ongoing story arcs in style Every four years members of The 100 meet in the holy city of Vyene, the heart of the Broken Empire, to vote For over a century that vote has ended without anyone having the majority needed to claim the title of emperor This time Honorous Jorg Ancrath is determined to see a different outcome Jorg tra [...]

  14. for whilst the holy may fail in any moment, the damned may in any moment reach for redemption This book, and this series, are unlike anything that I have read in a very long time I think that the expectation that these are high fantasy needs to be removed because I don t think it fits into that category, and if you read expecting that, you may be disappointed Mark Lawrence brings us into a world that has been broken in many ways Physically, it has been destroyed by a people known as the Builders [...]

  15. If you must run, have something to run toward, so it feels less like cowardice And if you must run to something, why not make it the empire throne Something suitably distant and unobtainable After all, getting everything you wish for is nearly as dire a curse as having all your dreams come true.Good and thought provoking book and a fitting ending to trilogy, although it didn t blow my mind the way King of Thorns did Whilst I enjoyed the story for the most part except the gruesome bits I found co [...]

  16. The Review thefoundingfields 2013 07 A stunning conclusion to the Broken Empire Trilogy Easily one of the best books of 2013 and a book that s well worth the wait The Founding FieldsIf I had to make a most anticipated list of Novels coming out this year, Emperor of Thorns would be in the Top 5, there s no question about it Mark Lawrence really impressed me with the first two books in the trilogy, both of which I own in hardback so that I knew that Emperor of Thorns was always going to be a relea [...]

  17. The Broken Empire trilogy is an amazingly well written, witty, rich with action and magic dystopia A multitude of well developed, twisted and unique characters is what, in part, makes this series so interesting.We start our journey among a bloody brotherhood of the road, dumbfounded by disturbingly crude and grim narration of their atrocities, committed with unsettling triviality LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN I ve noticed a lot of readers complaining about the unnecessary and extreme violence of the f [...]

  18. I ve never done this before I ve never gotten a book ahead of its publication date You can t leak the ending You can t spoil it So, what do you say What do I say In my previous reviews of Prince of Thorns and King of Thorns I brought up scenes I liked and wrote about Lawrence s use of modern science to make these books than a fantasy I even wrote about the chronological structure, but I m not going to do that now.I m going to tell a story instead.When I was sent a DM over twitter asking if I wa [...]

  19. I ve made several manic recommendations to friends to read the Broken Empire Trilogy and whenever they ask Why or What is it about I find myself hard up against a roadblock.By roadblock I mean giant choking lump in my throat every time I think about this series Weird, given it isn t some navel gazing, chic lit, sob story, wah wah examination of the world focussing on how we could and should be better humans In fact, it s gory, unapologetic and painful Sometimes even sickening But the Broken Empi [...]

  20. Thank you Mark for this great and amazing trilogy.I recommend this to everyone It got it s own magic, something I can t pin out.RTC Damn you university

  21. This whole series is fantasticdark and disturbing and extremely well written I would recommend this series to both fantasy and non fantasy readers alike.

  22. Dark times call for dark choices Choose me For all you Jorg haters out there, that one line, that simple declaration, sums up The Broken Empire better than anything I might be able to coax from my tired brain Yes, for the second night in a row, a book has gotten its hooks into me and demanded I stay up far too late reading the final 200 pages Fortunately, Emperor of Thorns delivered in almost every respect, defiantly answering my every conflicting emotion resulting from its predecessor, King of [...]

  23. Every man has his thorns, not of him, but in him, deep as bones.Satisfactorio final de saga En algunos momentos se me hizo aburrido, algo lento de a ratos Algunas partes para m estuvieron de m s o se alargaron demasiado Otra cosa que no me agrad tanto fue el cambio en Jorg En este tomo la magia, lo que lo hac a tan especial, se perdi un poco Lo not m s bueno y bondadoso.Por lo dem s, excelente La prosa de Lawrence me volvi a maravillar, hay bastantes escenas picas que me dejaron totalmente aturd [...]

  24. Emperor of Thorns was a satisfying conclusion As the title of the book suggests, the inimitable Honorous Jorg Ancrath, was paving the way to getting himself crowned emperor of the broken empire at the Congression at the Gilden Gates of Vyene where the Hundred gather every four years to vote The reason why the empire stayed broken till today was simply because no one ever managed to swayed a majority vote However, this is Jorg we re talking about, and this young man really knows how to play his h [...]

  25. I unfortunatley lack the time to elaborate, so I ll make this short.Thank you Mark Lawrence, for oneGLORIOUStrilogy I m absolutely confident that had the books weren t dark enough to diminish their audience, they were as popular as other awesome mainstream series Sanderson s, Rothfuss s, Lynch s, etc The biggest non spoiler question in these books is howin helldo we get to root and dare I say, love for Jorg s success That awful murderer, rapist, monster It s what I am, and if you want excuses, c [...]

  26. The cover I just LOVE the cover it suits Jorg perfectly However, I can t help thinking of The Coronation of Napoleon by Jacques Louis David at the Louvre, Ok not the original, but the first sketch David did In that sketch, Napoleon didn t allow the Pope to put the crown on his head, he did it himself, so yeah, Napoleon crowning himself, same as little fictional Jorg.

  27. Brilliant though unexpected ending for one of the most beautiful and violent fantasy series I have ever read Everything fits perfect, from de characters destinies to the plot s ending And the SF elements are also perfectly integrated, making this story even intriguing Despite Jorg Ancrath being despised by a lot of people, I think he is the most interesting character ever to step between the pages of a book Highly recommended.

  28. I don t write reviews but now i am writing one so you might ask yourself why am i writing for this books specially Ok this review isn t for Emperor Of Thorns but it is a review for the whole Broken Empire Trilogy with no spoilers even for Prince Of Thorns This trilogy doesn t have quarter the attention it deserves These books are awesome and poetic Mark s writing style is unique it reminded me of the beauty of the Kingkiller Chronicles books even if the Broken Empire is one of the darkest series [...]

  29. Emperor of Thorns was surprising and satisfyingly predictable in a lot of ways Talking about a final book in a series is always difficult, cause I don t want to give away any plot details.For me personally the whole trilogy reads like a fever dream and in hindsight I would consider it the best approach to read it back to back, cause the gap for me between the books might have been too big to get all the little details and hints I could have probably figured out a few things and themes sooner, th [...]

  30. This book is a weird one, and this series is a weird one because the whole way through reading this I never felt that I truly comprehended everything That s not to say I was so confused I didn t get it but it is to say that there s multiple plot lines and different timelines which all weave in and out of one another In this book we are following Jorg once as he journeys to petition for becoming the Emperor That s the first plotline, and it s the plotline which takes place two years after the en [...]
