Summary

A volume of short stories by the best-selling author of The Broken Empire series, Mark Lawrence
This is a collection of 14 stories of murder, mayhem, pathos, and philosophy, all set in the world of the Broken Empire.
Within this audiobook, you will find tales of men such as Red Kent, Sir Makin, Rike, Burlow and the Nuban, telling of their origins and the events that forged them. There is Jorg himself - as a child of six, as a teenage wanderer and as a young king. And then there is a tale about Prince Jalan Kendeth - liar, cheat, womaniser and coward.
To the new listener: welcome to a lawless world, where wit and sword are the most useful weapons, and danger lurks as much in candlelit palaces as in dark alleys and dense woodland. To those who have already journeyed with Jorg, we hope you will enjoy renewing old acquaintances with your favourite characters.

Vikings sound like Dracula

The narrator's grasp of accent leaves something to be desired. Apart from that the performance is quite good, but a lot of the dialogue is done in generic foreign voice. A pity.

Entertaining

If you liked the Prince of Thorns and Prince of Fool trilogies then this short story collect will be right up your street. It is narrated by Sean Ohlendorf again so a lot of the voices are recognisable, though he didn't narrate the Thorns books.
Overall it's great to hear about some of the secondary characters and get a lot more back story to them, as well as the world building in general. And some of the fun little crossovers, or Easter Eggs if you want, are a lot of fun too.
