Giveaway : King Of Thorns (signed hardcover) – Mark Lawrence
When you have a blog, sometimes you have the opportunity to give something amazing away. And today I have the opportunity to do a giveaway of a signed hardback of King of Thorns (With many thanks to Mark Lawrence for providing the book). That’s what I call a wonderful book to get (see for my review of this great book here).
In Book One of the Broken Empire, Mark Lawrence brought to life the “morbidly gripping” (“Publishers Weekly”) story of a boy in search of power and vengeance. Now, in “King of Thorns,” that boy’s journey into manhood takes him to the dark depths waiting within his soul… The boy who would be King has gained the throne… Prince Honorous Jorg Ancrath vowed when he was nine to avenge his slaughtered mother and brother–and punish his father for not doing so. When he was fifteen, he began to fulfill that vow. Now he is eighteen–and he must hold on by strength of arms to what he took by torture and treachery. King Jorg is a man haunted: by the ghost of a young boy, by a mysterious copper box, by his desire for the woman who rides with his enemy. Plagued by nightmares of the atrocities he committed, and of the atrocities committed against him when he was a child, he is filled with rage. And even as his need for revenge continues to consume him, twenty thousand men march toward the gates of his castle. His enemy is far stronger than him. Jorg knows that he cannot win a fair fight. But he has found, in a chamber hidden beneath the castle, ancient and long-lost artifacts. Some might call them magic. Jorg is not certain–all he knows is that the secrets they hold can be put to terrible use in the coming battle…
RULES: The giveaway is international and will close on Friday the 22nd of February 2013. I’ve decided to give the book away through means of a little contest. Since the protagonist of the ‘Broken Empire’ series is one evil bastard, I want you to put in a comment below what evil thing you would do when you’re a king or queen. The funniest/best reply will win the book. Leave behind your e-mail address and if you’ve won I’ll contact you on Saturday the 23th. You’ll have 24 hours to reply after that or a new winner will be chosen.
Good luck to all of you.
Entries are closed. An email has been sent to the winner.
And that winner is Jerome Lim. Congratulations, Jerome.
