From the critically acclaimed author of THE BROKEN EMPIRE series comes a brilliant new epic fantasy series, THE RED QUEEN'S WAR. 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. PRINCE OF FOOLS is the first book in the series.

'A savage voice which is telling you a good jest while trying to drown you in story' ROBERT LOW (Author of the Kingdom Series and the Oathsworn Series) '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' YA and Carnegie-shortlisted author ANTHONY MCGOWAN Praise for The Broken Empire: 'Dark and relentless, Prince of Thorns will pull you under and drown you in story. A two-in-the-morning page turner. Absolutely stunning... jaw-dropping' ROBIN HOBB 'Excellent - on a par with George R.R. Martin' CONN IGGULDEN 'Lawrence's poetic prose is amazing, far and away the best of the modern fantasy authors' PETER V. BRETT 'A hard-edged tale of survival and conquest in a brutal medieval world, well told and very compelling' TERRY BROOKS
