We are very excited to announce that we have acquired a new epic fantasy trilogy from Broken Empire author Mark Lawrence.
Jane Johnson said: “I’ve spent 30 years working in the SF and Fantasy field, but in all that time I have never been so excited about any debut writer as I was when I first read Mark Lawrence. In just three short years he has established himself as the most talented rising star in the genre, with an intense and groundbreaking fantasy trilogy that’s as likely to make you shout with laughter as with fear. He’s a mathematician who writes like a poet, a rocket-scientist who brings to bear on his work both precision and gigantic leaps of imagination.”
The first novel in the Red Queen’s War trilogy, Prince of Fools, is set in the same world as the Broken Empire series and features popular character Prince Jal. Tenth in line to the throne, Jal’s fearsome grandmother rules over the bloodstained kingdom, leaving the prince free to pursue his debauched pleasures, until a chance encounter with Snorri ver Snagason leads him on an epic journey across half the Broken Empire and uncovers a secret war the old queen has been waging for decades.
Prince of Fools will publish in June 2014. Look out for advanced reading copies, coming soon!
