I really like Mr Kernick, but I'm not sure this is his best work. It's full of the usual tension and has you glued to the book yet again. But I can't help feeling this was written to meet a deadline, or similarly rushed in some sense. Don't get me wrong, I am as usual happy I've read it and it did keep me gripped. I just felt something was missing from thid book, such as the black humour which is normally not so bleak, or a less jaded view of the human condition.
I'm still happy I read this book, just not as happy as I felt I would be. Perhaps the subject matter makes me biased though.
I will still recommend him though.

4.0 out of 5 stars A simple pleasure, 3 Sep 2013
This book, last in the series of the Broken Empire takes us to Jorg as an adult. It does drop back to his wanderings when still a teenager, but the beauty of the book is in the way this brutal yet complex character has evolved.
Without trying to give too much away, there is a final meeting between the dead king and Jorg, but the twists in the tale are wonderfully wrought, and I for one look forward to reading more from Mark Lawrence in the future brothers.

I have this on my phone and tablet, and couldn't be happier with how it works, it's simplicity of user interface, and what it does for my battery life.
