Summary

From the critically acclaimed author of Prince of Fools comes the second volume of the brilliant new epic fantasy series The Red Queen's War.
"If you like dark, you will love Mark Lawrence. And when the light breaks through, and it all makes sense, the contrast is gorgeous." (Robin Hobb)
The Red Queen has set her players on the board…. Winter is keeping Prince Jalan Kendeth far from the longed-for luxuries of his southern palace. And although the North may be home to his companion, the warrior Snorri ver Snagason, he is just as eager to leave. For the Viking is ready to challenge all of hell to bring his wife and children back into the living world. He has Loki's key - now all he needs is to find the door.
As all wait for the ice to unlock its jaws, the Dead King plots to claim what was so nearly his - the key into the world - so that the dead can rise and rule.

Great

The Liars Key is a great follow up to Prince of Fools, starting a few months after the events of the first book. I really enjoyed it, the main characters develop and we learn more about the history of them, and their families. And the inclusion of a few new ones are interesting and bring a lot to the story.

There is more world building too which is very welcome as I find the World this series is set in quite wonderful. Lastly the narrator is excellent, bringing more accents and life to the characters which really increases the enjoyment while listening.
