"The Broken Empire" minireview 14. July 2014 Marius-Gheorghe books (0) This is such a pleasant surprise. A terrific fantasy trilogy with a "anti hero type" main character. Dark, violent and visceral this is basically the exact opposite of common "high fantasy" novels. The storytelling is succinct and to the point, just right not to get in the way of the action. A great story of revenge and redemption with a touch of madness thrown in. Wholeheartedly recommended and personally i'm really looking forward to what Mark Lawrence is writing next.
