BOOK ONE IN THE BROKEN EMPIRE TRILOGY

“Prince of Thorns
deserves attention as the work of an iconoclast who seems determined to turn that familiar thing, Medievalesque Fantasy Trilogy, entirely on its head.”—Locus 


When he was nine, he watched as his mother and brother were killed before him. By the time he was thirteen, he was the leader of a band of bloodthirsty thugs. By fifteen, he intends to be king...

It’s time for Prince Honorous Jorg Ancrath to return to the castle he turned his back on, to take what’s rightfully his. Since the day he hung pinned on the thorns of a briar patch and watched Count Renar’s men slaughter his mother and young brother, Jorg has been driven to vent his rage. Life and death are no more than a game to him—and he has nothing left to lose.

But treachery awaits him in his father’s castle. Treachery and dark magic. No matter how fierce his will, can one young man conquer enemies with power beyond his imagining?

first 2 books were lovely but the thirth kinda felt rushed. there were no hints i think to the end of the plot in the first 2 books and only in the 3th did we get hints on how this would end. Maybe i am typing this cous i felt unsatisfied with the ending so don't mind me

I just finished the trilogy. Mark has a unique style of writing. A striking lack of similarity to anyone else. The greatest compliment I can make to Mark is that I recommended the books to my brother who is the most well read sci fi critics I know. He will love them.
