So, I’m very much in the minority not being utterly in love with Mark Lawrence’s The Broken Empire Trilogy - too dark for me - but I could tell the writing was excellent so decided to give this second trilogy a try.
The Prince of Fools kept me entertained, but not enthralled, so I downloaded the second instalment with more of a “let’s see how it goes” attitude, rather than a “I can’t wait for this!” attitude...........turns out that this was the clincher to convert me to a fan :) What a book! What a story!
I felt this one had more cohesive rhythm than the first, with plenty of characters to love a lot more than Jalan Kendeth, who I have a strong love/hate feeling towards, and for me these were the crucial elements to keep me listening and keen to find out where this was going.
The writing is absolutely superb, with plenty of clever comedy and poetic turn-of-phrase intermingled with each other and the narration is some of the best I’ve heard, comparable to Steven Pacey, Nathaniel Parker and Sean Barrett, all of whom I think are masters at bringing a story to life.
Off to download number three.....
