Publisher's Summary

Prince of Fools, The Red Queen's War: Book One had all "the hallmarks of [Mark Lawrence's] storytelling and writing style which made The Broken Empire trilogy such an incredibly addictive read" (Bibliosanctum.com). Now The Liar's Key continues the story of the unusual fellowship between a rogue prince and a weary warrior....
After harrowing adventure and near-death, Prince Jalan Kendeth and the Viking Snorri ver Snagason find themselves in possession of Loki's Key, an artefact capable of opening any door and sought by the most dangerous beings in the Broken Empire - including The Dead King. Jal wants only to return home to his wine, women, and song, but Snorri has his own purpose for the key: to find the very door into death, throw it wide, and bring his family back into the land of the living. And as Snorri prepares for his quest to find death's door, Jal's grandmother, the Red Queen, continues to manipulate kings and pawns toward an endgame of her own design....

Never disappoints

Very enjoyable, always kept me guessing, as to what sort of disaster he will get Into next and what sort of ridiculous predicament he will have to deal with.
All in all fantastic stuff

A Different Novel Then we are Use to

Mark Lawrence does it again. He writes an antihero that teeters on the brink of us as readers hating and loving him at the same time. Jal is very different from Jorgg from the thorns trilogy, but he is still not the typical hero we are use to in a fantasy novel. His antics continue in this second novel of The Red Queen's War trilogy, and if anything they are more outrageous and hilarious then before. However, this novel does not have the pace of the story in the first novel, there is more setup time and a little less action. However, the plot is intricate as always with many different forces playing for position on the game board. One must pay close attention to keep up with what is happening, and the small hints that are dropped for events to come. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, but I do believe that parts of the ending were kind of predictable and it does suffer from middle novel slowness in a trilogy. Despite these problems it does end with a bang and leaves me anxiously waiting for the final book. Also, the narrator does a spectacular job with the novel, and captures the character of Jal perfectly, making him more hilarious and reddiculous. I would definitely recommend reading this novel and I hate the fact that I have to wait another year for the next installment.
