Waiting on Wednesday – Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating..

I haven’t posted a WoW in a while, but when I saw the cover for Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence, I decided it was time to play the waiting game again.  This spring I broadened my reading horizons, and I am consuming a little bit of everything, and this dark fantasy looks sooo good!  I love fantasy novels, and not too long ago, they were all I would read.  It is funny how my reading patterns have changed over the years…

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?

In stores August 2011

    Prince of Thorns has been on my TBR list for a while as well – it sounds fantastic!

    I cheated and went with a double WOW this.

    I am tempted to add this to my TBR it sounds good and I like high fantasy and I love the art on the cover which I think is by Jason Chan. I wish the text on the cover was better though but I’ll shut up about that now.
