The boy who would be king has gained the throne...

At age nine, Prince Honorous Jorg Ancrath vowed to avenge his slaughtered mother and brother—and to punish his father for not doing so. At fifteen, he began to fulfill that vow. Now, at eighteen, he must fight for what he has taken by torture and treachery.

Haunted by the pain of his past, and plagued by nightmares of the atrocities he has committed, King Jorg is filled with rage. And even as his need for revenge continues to consume him, an overwhelming enemy force marches on his castle.

Jorg knows that he cannot win a fair fight. But he has found a long-hidden cache of ancient artifacts. Some might call them magic. Jorg is not certain—all he knows is that their secrets can be put to terrible use in the coming battle...

King of Thorns
Average rating
4.4 / 5
Exciting and unpredictably evil. Great!
January 6th, 2015
This sequel may be better than the first book and I certainly read it faster. I'm loving Lawrence's clear mastery over vindicating the antihero. The characters are wonderfully crafted, grown and carved away from the plot. So enjoyable.

Epic journey and war
July 28th, 2014
This book improves on the first and I love how the author cleverly narrates a battle in a day, with constant flashbacks to an epic journey and memories locked away, being released bit by bit. I enjoy every single character created, mourn the passing of each. I thank the author for his intelligence and imagination, and look forward to his next book and many more.

More mature than Prince of Thorns
October 23rd, 2013
It's a great sequel to the Prince of Thorns. More of the same, with the main character maturing (with the author, no doubt). Looking forward to read Emperor of Thorns.
