Not too long ago I wrote how the beginning of Prince of Thorns made me uncomfortable. But after reading several very complimentary reviews I have to acknowledge that I have probably totally misjudged this book. I can live with being wrong-- but I can't stand the idea that I might have been unfair.
So, in the interest of fairness, I'd like to offer a copy of "Prince of Thorns" for giveaway (courtesy of Penguin Books) so that you may have the chance to read the book for yourself. I also need to give a quick nod to Mark Lawrence-- a great guy who showed nothing but respect for my point of view.
A stunning fantasy debut from a major new talent!
When he was nine, he watched his mother and brother killed before him. By the time he was thirteen, he was the leader of a band of bloodthirsty thugs. By fifteen, he intends to be king...
It's time for Prince Honorous Jorg Ancrath to return to the castle he turned his back on, to take what's rightfully his. Since the day he was hung on the thorns of a briar patch and forced to watch Count Renar's men slaughter his mother and young brother, Jorg has been driven to vent his rage. Life and death are no more than a game to him-and he has nothing left to lose.
But treachery awaits him in his father's castle. Treachery and dark magic. No matter how fierce, can the will of one young man conquer enemies with power beyond his imagining?
