Prince of Thorns

Prince of Thorns - Mark  Lawrence Subjectively: I liked it.
Slightly more objectively: Well-written on the whole, interesting tale (i.e. I'll probably do 5 stars for Amazon and the like).

Unfortunately,I just can't identify with (i.e. care about) a character like Jorg, which is always what I'm on the the lookout for. I saw potential for him to develop in a likeable way... but, then, perhaps he isn't meant to. This is a character study as much as an adventure, and I'm OK with that, I'm just not going to fall in love with it.

There is a certain "coolness" about a character that can be totally ruthless, though. It interests me enough that at this point, I'm more than a little willing to read more....
