Prince of Fools by Mark Lawrence

The Red Queen is old but the kings of the Broken Empire fear her as they fear no other.

Her grandson Jalan Kendeth is a coward, a cheat and a womaniser; and tenth in line to the throne.  While his grandmother shapes the destiny of millions, Prince Jalan pursues his debauched pleasures.  Until he gets entangled with Snorri ver Snagason, a huge Norse axe man, and dragged against his will to the icy north.

In a journey across half the Broken Empire, Jalan flees minions of the Dead King, agrees to duel an upstart prince named Jorg Ancrath, and meets the ice witch, Skilfar, all the time seeking a way to part company with Snorri before the Norseman’s quest leads them to face his enemies in the black fort on the edge of the Bitter Ice.

Experience does not lend Jalan wisdom; but here and there he unearths a corner of the truth.  He discovers that they are all pieces on a board, pieces that may be being played in the long, secret war the Red Queen has waged throughout her reign, against the powers that stand behind thrones and nations, and for higher stakes than land or gold.

From the critically-acclaimed author of The Broken Empire series comes a new epic fantasy trilogy, The Red Queen’s War.

Peer & Press Reviews

A savage voice which is telling you a good jest while trying to drown you in story.

Robert Low, author of the Kingdom Series

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

Really excellent, gritty fantasy – I’m trying to avoid comparison with Game of Thrones, but I’m afraid it’s right there.  But funnier.  Very funny indeed.

Anthony McGowan, author of Rook
