In the third novel in the Broken Empire Trilogy, the boy who would rule all may have finally met his match...
King Jorg Ancrath is twenty now—and king of seven nations. His goal—revenge against his father—has not yet been realized, and the demons that haunt him have only grown stronger. Yet no matter how tortured his path, he intends to take the next step in his upward climb.
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 plans to change that. He’s uncovered 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.

From the Paperback edition.

Loved Ebro single one of these books. Jorg is a right bastard, but one I can get behind.

Great ending to a terrific trilogy. Each book in this series pulled me in quickly and had me reading late into the night. I was impressed by the style and flow of the story and the unique characters within. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a different take on the fantasy genre, although not for the squeamish.

Loved reading about Jorg Ancrath & the Brothers. Wish it hadn't ended but it did. If you like GoT, you'll enjoy this trilogy.

I'm floored by the ending. In shock. Sad the series is over. What a fantastic read! Hope I can find as much excitement in the next book by Mr Lawrence.
