King Jorg Ancrath is twenty now - and king of seven nations. His goal - revenge against his father - has not yet been realized, and the demons that haunt him have only grown stronger. Yet no matter how tortured his path, he intends to take the next step in his upward climb. For there is only one power worth wielding... absolute power. Jorg would be emperor. It is a position not to be gained by the sword but rather by vote. And never in living memory has anyone secured a majority of the vote, leaving the Broken Empire long without a leader. Jorg has plans to change that - one way or the other. He's uncovered even more of the lost technology of the land, and he won't hesitate to use it. But he soon finds an adversary standing in his way, a necromancer unlike any he has ever faced - a figure hated and feared even more than himself: the Dead King. The boy who would rule all may have finally met his match...

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.

Reviews for Emperor of Thorns (#3 Broken Empire)

Praise for Prince of Thorns: '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 'Excellent - on a par with George R.R. Martin' CONN IGGULDEN '[A] morbidly gripping, gritty fantasy tale.' Publishers Weekly 'Lawrence's poetic prose is amazing, far and away the best of the modern fantasy authors' PETER V. BRETT
