Book Review: Prince of Fools by Mark Lawrence

Prince of Fools

Genre: Dark Fantasy/Grimdark
Series: Red Queen’s War
Author info: http://www.marklawrence.buzz/

“I find that the main thing about success is the ability to act in the moment. A hero attacks in the moment; a good coward runs in it. The rest of the world waits for the next moment and ends up as crow food.”
― Mark Lawrence, Prince of Fools

To be honest I was a bit scared of being disappointed by this book after reading the reviews about Jalan since I’m a huge fan of Jorg and Jalan is Jorg’s complete opposite. But I’m far from being disappointed after reading it and Jalan has a new fan now.

He’s not Jorg but he’s quite a charming character and his companion Snorri is awesome in many levels. Believe me, Snorri makes up for the lack of Makin and the other brothers here. Jorg makes a cameo with his brothers, albeit briefly, it’s a sweet surprise for the Jorg fans. The Silent Sister has serious charisma and Dr. Taproot, our old friend from The Broken Empire has a much longer part and fun dialogues.

Verdict: Superb book, awesome characters and a damn good journey story with Mark Lawrence’s amazing prose.

Rating: 5/5 Roman Solidus.
