I loved this book sooo much! The character Jorg is fascinating! He is truly an evil character yet he can still manage to be so well-loved by the reader. However, this is also why this book isn't for everyone; for some, there is just too much violence, rape and general evilness from the 'protagonist' but that's also why some people love it. One of the reasons I loved this book so much is because I felt the control that Jorg had, over the whole book no matter how despairing the events might seem; he always seemed to have the confidence that he will come out on top and I believed in him the whole way through. There are books that are defined by its well developed settings and overall plot, and there are books defined by its engaging characters. Mark Lawrance's Prince of Thorns is definitely both; I am in love with its characters and the Prince of Thorns world!
