Product description

Review

Praise for King of Thorns

"This dark and gritty fantasy adventure should please fans of military fantasy and no-frills action."--Library Journal

"The whole book is really like one action scene that doesn't end...King of Thorns is epic fantasy on a George R. R. Martin scale, but on speed."--Fixed on Fantasy

"An excellent novel...King of Thorns is very good, more complex, perhaps more ambitious than Prince of Thorns."--sffworld.com

"A tour de force. 'Impressive' doesn't even begin to describe its content. Truly a phenomenal series so far."--Choice Book Reviews

"
King of Thorns is a novel that solidifies Mark Lawrence's place as one of fantasy's most talented authors."--Fantasy Faction

"This is a dark story that demands attention from its readers but also rewards them immensely for their attention in the end. Read King of Thorns to be shocked and awed by the boy who would be king."--Fantasy Book Critic

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Mark Lawrence is married with four children, one of whom is severely disabled. His day job is as a research scientist focused on various rather intractable problems in the field of artificial intelligence. He has held secret level clearance with both US and UK governments. At one point he was qualified to say 'this isn't rocket science ... oh wait, it actually is'.

Between work and caring for his disabled child, Mark spends his time writing, playing computer games, tending an allotment, brewing beer, and avoiding DIY.
