King of Thorns Audiobook by Mark Lawrence Streaming Online
King of Thorns is the second audiobook in The Broken Empire Audiobook trilogy written by Mark Lawrence. Lawrence takes his young anti-hero one step closer to his grand ambition. To reach greatness you must step on bodies, and many brothers lie trodden in my wake. I’ve walked from pawn to player and I’ll win this game of ours, though the cost of it may drown the world in blood…The land burns with the fires of a hundred battles as lords and petty kings fight for the Broken Empire.
This is a lean, cold knife-thrust of a novel, a revenge fantasy anchored on the compelling voice and savage purpose of its titular Prince. There is never a safe moment in Lawrence’s debut.
Prince Honorious Jorg Ancrath vowed when he was nine to avenge his slaughtered mother and brother – and punish his father for not doing so. When he was fifteen, he began to fulfill that vow. Now he is eighteen – and he must hold on by the strength of arms to what he took by torture and treachery.
King Jorg is a man haunted: by the ghost of a young boy, by a mysterious copper box, by his desire for the woman who rides with his enemy. Plagued by nightmares of the atrocities he committed, and of the atrocities committed against him when he was a child, he is filled with rage.
And even as his need for revenge continues to consume him, twenty thousand men march toward the gates of his castle. His enemy is far stronger than him. Jorg knows that he cannot win a fair fight.
But he has found, in a chamber hidden beneath the castle, ancient and long-lost artifacts. Some might call them magic. Jorg is not certain – all he knows is that the secrets they hold can be put to terrible use in the coming battle…
Why should you listen to King of Thorns?
I think King of Thorns Audiobook Mp3 is my favorite book in an excellent trilogy because the odds are so severely against our anti-hero Jorg. Brutal and very well written. I cannot say enough great things about it and listening to King Jorg’s tale while I’m driving, painting, at work and when I can’t sleep is awesome.
The stakes are high and the plot twists are perfect. Having killed his uncle and secured a small kingdom in the mountains, young Jorg now faces a powerful, charismatic enemy – the Prince of Arrow – who seems destined to unite the Broken Empire.
The action jumps back in forth in time, from the siege of Jorg’s capital to several years before, showing us how Jorg traveled the empire and gathered his resources to fight a seemingly impossible battle.
In my opinion, this audiobook solidifies Mark Lawrence as a solid name in my book collection and he can be sure that any book even nearly matching the first two will have a spot reserved.
Pitch black, unpredictable, thrilling, shocking and bloody compulsory read. I just can’t find enough words for praise!
