Review: Trilogy of Thorns - Mark Lawrence



The Darkside launched a single edition that corresponds to the books Prince of Thorns (2013), King of Thorns (2014) and Emperor of Thorns (2014). This special edition is fantastic. With a great finish, golden pages and a worn cover, it is, without a doubt, one of the best works of the publisher.

The book is not far behind. With an engaging history, it stands between Fantasia and Dystopia. I'm not going to say where the story is in order not to break the reader's surprise, but it is totally surprising.

Prince of Thorns, the first book in the series, serves as a presentation of this universe, where the seas have risen and several countries no longer exist. You can already get an idea of the style of criticism that the story brings. In addition to this presentation of local geography, we have the story of the protagonist and his journey through the crown. In this new world, magic is confused with old technology, giving the reader a lot to think about our past and future.

The second book, King of Thorns, is more stopped and turned in the character's past. It may seem boring, but no. It is a part of the story needed to get to know a little more about Jorg. The author takes this break, even necessary, so that we can dive deeper into his universe. These are parts that we asked ourselves in the first book.

And finally all doubts will be answered in the third and last book, Emperor of Thorns. Jorg has a growth as a person. From an anti hero, if we can call him that, to a man who has learned to see not only the world, but the people around him.

The Thorns Trilogy it is beyond a book to read and keep in your collection. It is a book that brings discussions about physics, the environment, how we see our own technology like nuclear, holography and so many others. An adventure that not only serves to entertain you, but also to teach.

The work is one of the best Dystopian Dark Fantasies written among current books. Great for RPG fans and who like big searches, whether for adventurers or for themselves.
