Sleeping Beauty by Mark Lawrence

August sees the release of Emperor of Thorns, completing this chapter of  books. Mark has written a fine blog on this, in which he says it has been a journey. Jorg does not at first appear to be the most appealing of protagonists: a charming but amoral young thug, hardened against the suffering of others to a terrifying degree. But as the books unfold, we come not only to respect him but in the end to root for him; even to love him. That’s a trick not many seasoned novelists could pull off, let alone a debutant in the field.

If you need something to tide you over until Emperor of Thorns hits shelves in August, Mark has written a brilliant short story, featuring Jorg, which can be downloaded, for free, from the link below.
