Description
Hailed as "epic fantasy on a George R. R. Martin scale, but on speed" (Fixed on Fantasy), the Broken Empire trilogy introduced a bold new world of dark fantasy with the story of Jorg Ancrath' s devastating rise to power. Now, Mark Lawrence returns to the Broken Empire with the tale of a less ambitious prince The Red Queen is old but the kings of the Broken Empire dread her like no other. For all her reign, she has fought the long war, contested in secret, against the powers that stand behind nations, for higher stakes than land or gold. Her greatest weapon is The Silent Sister��� unseen by most and unspoken of by all. The Red Queen' s grandson, Prince Jalan Kendeth��� drinker, gambler, seducer of women��� is one who can see The Silent Sister. Tenth in line for the throne and content with his role as a minor royal, he pretends that the hideous crone is not there. But war is coming. Witnesses claim an undead army is on the march, and the Red Queen has called on her family to defend the realm. Jal thinks it' s all a rumor��� nothing that will affect him��� but he is wrong. After escaping a death trap set by the Silent Sister, Jal finds his fate magically intertwined with a fierce Norse warrior. As the two undertake a journey across the Empire to undo the spell, encountering grave dangers, willing women, and an upstart prince named Jorg Ancrath along the way, Jalan gradually catches a glimmer of the truth: he and the Norseman are but pieces in a game, part of a series of moves in the long war��� and the Red Queen controls the board.

        April 14, 2014
        A not-so-heroic prince is trapped in a deadly mission that could decide the fate of the kingdom in this trilogy opener set in Lawrence���s alt-European Broken Empire world. Prince Jalan Kendeth, 10th in line for the throne and a self-described coward, has few life ambitions beyond drinking, gambling, and wenching. But the Dead King is raising a vast army that threatens Jalan���s home of Red March. Jalan���s grandmother, the Red Queen, has a secret weapon: a mysterious sorceress called the Silent Sister. Jalan knows the Silent Sister is capable of horrors, but that knowledge doesn���t protect him when he and enslaved Norse warrior Snorri ver Snagson are caught in one of her spells. Bound by magic, the two men become unlikely traveling companions. Shrewd Jalan and honorable Snorri make a marvelous team, lightening a very dark story with wry humor. The brisk adventure and black magic will leave readers eager for the next chapter in the series.

      • content: Unfazed by unusual characters, creatures, and happenings, narrator Tim Gerard Reynolds reads this tangled saga without hesitation. Prince Jalan Kendeth, grandson of the Red Queen, tenth in line for the crown, teams up with Snorri ver Snagason, a smart and hulking Norseman, as they attempt to head off an army of undead creatures that threaten the kingdom. This adventure is imbued with humor, endless dialogue, and tortuous twists. Kendreth's droll attitude is captured perfectly by Reynolds. Crude language and graphically described murder scenes are interspersed with long narratives of warring and heroism. Reynolds adds accents to differentiate each character, varying his intonation and pacing, and capturing the excitement of strange new lands. M.B.K. �� AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
