EMPEROR OF THORNS
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
Lawrence ends his majestically epic and magical post-apocalyptic trilogy like it started: with bloody yet beautiful prose. He unwraps more clues to the past with dialogue that chills and characters you’d not want to meet in nightmares, where heroes are dark and evil fiends darkest of all. This book will go down as one of the best ever. Bravo!
In an empire whose builders have long since self-destructed but whose ghosts remain, King Jorg’s set to claim the empty throne. This path — like the last — is littered with the bodies of his enemies. The life of his son has given his brutality a purpose: to bring his kingdom into a future better than that of his broken past. Alliances are tricky at best and deadly at worst for this former prisoner of thorns, because every face could be the last face he ever sees. (ACE, Aug., 448 pp., $25.95)
