After wresting back control of his kingdom from those who murdered his family, Jorg sees the land erupt with hundreds of battles fought by lords and petty kings.

Still no Unicorns ,,, but

Any additional comments?

Still Dark ,,,,Brooding and Violent but a much deeper plot. I like this book a lot better than the first book and i really liked the first.Seemed a bit less harsh with deeper characters.

The back story is great. Builders Sons,, Book of Kirk.. Took me longer than it should have to figure it out :) If you like The First Law books by Joe Abercrombie or The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks you will like these books. I am downloading Emperor of Thorns now.

I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Great sequel!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

James Clamp returns with a masterful reading of Mark Lawrence's "King of Thorns." One of my favorite audiobook performances.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like Jorg...and I hate him. I guess that's why I like him. He's complicated, but not arbitrarily so.

What does James Clamp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Clamp manages distinct voices for each character and is very consistent. He breathes a kind of personality into Jorg that I might have missed if I were just reading it on my own.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Jorg wrestles with the unintended effects of his necromancy (trying not to give too much away).
