    One of the best reads I have had in years. I like the evilness of the hero, and the fact that main characters can die. Not your typical fantasy book.

    this is one of my all time favourite books. i actually felt my heart rate increase while i was reading it, i guess the events of little jorgy's life can do that for a person.
    anyway i enjoyed reading your article, very concise.

    You need to fix the link for the books. I clicked on the book image, got sent to Amazon, but was sent to two books that are not the Prince of Thorns. Please fix. Your description makes me want to read the books. Thanks.

    Love this whole series. Very dark, very fun. The main character is both confusing, disturbing, and oh so captivating!

    I just finished these two books after seeing the recommendation here and can't say enough good things about them. The setting is dark and imaginative. The characters are well written and the protagonist well developed. The story is told with a lot of flashbacks, which may turn off some, but I think it works well here with the narrative style. Great books.

    One of the best anti-hero (Villainous?) characters I've read in a while.

    I love how Jorg, unless otherwise prompted into doing so, does not commit evil deeds for pleasure. He's simply unyielding and unrelenting when it comes to his ultimate goal; power, and allows nothing and nobody to stand in his way.

    I think most of the hate for this series stems from the first few chapters, which are quite brutal but a great introduction to our set of not-so-heroic characters.

    The best fantasy series in a long time. It should be ranked much higher in this list. The third book is out and does justice to the series.
    Just Awesome!

    This needs to be higher. Not only is Jorg one of the best characters I have come across in fantasy reading, but the writing is so much better than most of the others on this list.

    It's been a long time since I've been reading a book and truly wished it wouldn't end. And off the top of my head I can't remember a fantasy series where each installment was better than the previous one. But both are the case for these books.

    Brilliant books, loved the characters, their wittiness, the pop culture references...everything about it! Just finished reading all three and its too bad the story ends here - I'd have loved to read more. Please add similar books! Urban fantasy and Steven Ericsson comes to mind.

    I just finished the last in the series ("Emperor of Thorns"), and for my money the series is made even better by the fact that he FINISHED it; he even writes in the afterword that he was told by many people to "just keep it going" and basically print money - but he kept to his vision of a finished trilogy.
    Best fantasy series I've read since Abercrombie.

    This is one of the better, less predictable fantasy novels out there. Much has been said above about the main protagonist, Jorg, and his ruthlessness make him, for some, less than lovable. Here I just want to point out how incredibly beautifully written the series is. The prose is very sharp, very witty, and eminently memorable; much more mature and simply much better than some of the schlock otherwise on this list.

    I read about 50 pages, based on reviews. Not very good. The main character just not believable in development and plot worse already in those pages. The foundation was not there. Not top 25.

    Don't know how these books made the list. They read as though written by a 15-year old boy. The 'darkness' of the character Prince Jorg borders on the comical, his actions often nonsensical. Avoid these books. You'll be better off.

    Agreed, mostly. The first book, contrary to popular opinion so far as I've seen, I enjoyed more than the others. But all of them struck me as plodding, with a main character who miraculously survives everything by being a determined, stubborn, evil person with a pathological lack of fear. It's not credible. And the world building falls flat. Obviously this is a minority opinion, but IMHO.

    PRICE JORG has a keen intellect and is a master of the tactical. His evil streak is legendary and I found it amusing that he felt bad about a dead dog..

    this book is horrible...

    I am a solid fantasy reader, i am slowly reading through most of this list, including wheel of time (yes the entire serious - ps: loved it!)

    this book does not belong here... the idea is... yes ok interested but personally iv read more complex story structures and followed easily (as i said following all the links of wheel of time, even though the twists are not hard to keep up with in the book, just the sheer volume of story really) however trying to follow this writing style was really hard or perhaps thats boring? the style read fragmented and disjointed. it is very poetic in places and i truly enjoyed that, the darkness was also enjoyable.

    i love a dark gritty hero but to use the word hero here is... well not warranted. there is no hero.

    bad ass boarder line psychopathic heros like in "hero's must die" are amazing. Here in this book you will read from the bad guys point of view, that is the only way i can describe it. this might sound interesting but its really not because its attempting to paint over this by TRYING to relay it as the hero.

    the hero is scared (excuse the pun, readers joke) from effect of child hood drama. sure i get it, but that doesnt make him any less of a F-wit. he cares nothing for anyone even his only two friends. you could debate there is moments were he does, but you would have to debate it and you would never be able to prove it past a soft opinion.

    all in all this is the only book thus for on this list I will not continue to read the serious of.

    disappointed to say the least

    read this book in a single day it was that good, It very refreshing to read a fantasy book not who's has to become some great paragon and save the world from a evil wizard. it about a very bad and witty evil man taking it over.

    Ridiculous. The premise itself is good. An alternative world,much like our own with some sci-fi elements and magic. The Broken Empire is a great setting, with dark forces, knights, monsters, legends. One could easily take a known fairy or legend and implement it in the world with a little twisting (which also happens in the books).

    The bad:
    The characters are shit. Really, there is no better word for it.

    Jorg himself is quite comical. He is so eeeeevil and daaark that I had to often roll my eyes and laugh. He is supposed to be a genius, but his plans are so one sided they usually succeed because he got lucky (once again). He tries to be very controversial, liek the first scen where he rapes some farmers daughters, it just felt unnatural, it also did not fit him at all, it was a scene for controversies sake, which is unfogivable imo.

    He is not a believable character either, I finished the book but the twist did not make his actions any more believable. How did a 10 year old boy become the leader of a band of murderers and rapists? Why did they accept him as a leader, certainly not because of his martial proves or intelligence. Also he is 14 when he returns home. Really? Oh yeah and then he finishes his beer and is like, "This alcohol did nothing to me, because I am so hardcore!" it's liek the book was written for 14 year olds by a 14 year old. The whole -look at me I am evil and dark- motive is almost on every page and it makes every single one of Jorgs actions comical. Like when he /spoiler kills a whole castle with the red future-dust. He is like "No biggie, I never said I would conquer a castle full of people!" and his man are like "Oh Jorg, always so silly!".

    If you read the book like it's a sitcom and a parody of other gritty-fantasy than it's quite good. Otherwise it's shit.
