Having now read all three books I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that Mark Lawrence is a legendary fantasy writer. He had me at hello! I would recommend this book to anybody who loves fantasy. Rather gory in places admittedly, but in the bleak, desolate world of the Broken Empire believe me that's the least of your concerns. I loved Jorg, so dark and tormented. In fact, every character was beautifully developed. Mark Lawrence is now certainly on my favourite author list! Enjoy!!!
