Publisher's Summary

Lawrence brings the Broken Empire series to its devastating conclusion.
The path to the throne is broken - only the broken can walk it. The world is cracked and time has run through, leaving us clutching at the end days. These are the days that have waited for us all our lives. These are my days. I will stand before the Hundred and they will listen. I will take the throne no matter who stands against me, living or dead, and if I must be the last emperor then I will make of it such an ending.
This is where the wise man turns away. This is where the holy kneel and call on God. These are the last miles, my brothers. Don't look to me to save you. Run if you have the wit. Pray if you have the soul. Stand your ground if courage is yours. But don't follow me. Follow me, and I will break your heart.

"Dark and relentless, Prince of Thorns will pull you under and drown you in story. A two-in-the-morning page turner. Absolutely stunning... jaw-dropping" (Robin Hobb)

A good, dark and original story.

I just wish there was more, but then again I feel as though it finished just the way it was supposed to. Definitely recommended, it's well worth listening to.

Indelible

Up there with GRRM & Joe Abercrombie as a fave author. Have listened, twice to the whole trilogy . Fantasy? Sci-fi? Don't categorise, just enjoy the exceptional writing and wonder at how the whole trilogy's arc comes to a neat and fitting conclusion that actually provides satisfying closure.

Joe Jameson's brilliant narration is a joy in itself, his voice for Jorg is so fitting, plus he manages to come up with such apt and varied voices for the myriad of other characters. Would love to hear his take on A Song of Ice and Fire...

In short, these 3 books resonate in your mind long after they've been finished. They simply glisten.....

Almost

This is the conclusion in a 3 book story that at times promises much but too rarely doesn't deliver. It builds and builds at times and you think or you hope that its going to kick off but sadly no.
After finishing the series l felt slightly let down, going in I was hoping for something similar to the Blade Itself series of books by Joe Abercrombie, however its nowhere near the same quality.
A very average read/listen and definitely not worthy of a second.

Brilliant

A truly great fantasy series and brilliant narrator to boot. My only negative thought is dwelling on the fact that it's over.

Well rounded

I enjoyed seeing where the author was going with this third installment. I rate it as a well arounded third book to close out the trilogy. Bringing the same level of action, humor and thrill as the first two books.
