Some people have been put off by Jorg's relentless nastiness and lack of any sort of respect for others. He's also been accused of being a misogynist, but I don't think that's right. He will use/kill anyone for his own ends. It doesn't matter if they are male or female. For me one of the joys of the books is gradually getting an understanding of why he is the way he is through learning about key events in his past.
The way Lawrence splits the Jorg's story into different timelines that are told concurrently is very interesting, and keeps the different elements nicely separated until the denouement of each book.
In terms of the setting I like the way what initially seems to be a fantasy setting quickly reveals itself to be a future Europe after a thermonuclear war and gradually incorporates more and more sci-fi elements. It's nice to have an explanation for how the "magic" works, even if we never really learn specifics.
All in all I really enjoyed both books, and the fact that I kept reading King of Thorns until nearly 4am in order to get to the end one night should tell you what you need to know about how engrossing I found them. It's been a good while since the last time that happened to me.
How will it all end ...?
Great characters form the story and kept me wanting to read just one more page.
My only criticism is that perhaps too many of the characters are rather one dimensional and that the author did not need to try and explain the existence of his world but otherwise easy to suspend disbelief and enjoy!

A really gripping story with really interesting characters. It's an odd experience reading a book where you have no characters that you're supposed to like. Read morePublished on 20 Oct. 2014 by Doug Johnson

I chose a star because the author feels he's spinning some tale of grandeur where all he's creating is a confusing yarn of gobbledegook. Read morePublished on 15 May 2014 by oladipo animashaun
