Next up for review during Mark Lawrence week is the short story Sleeping Beauty.

About this Story:

This 10,000 word story covers a period between the end of the ‘early thread’ in Emperor of Thorns and the start of the ‘now’ thread in King of Thorns.
It’s really a bit of fun, prompted by a challenge from a reader to warp the tale of Sleeping Beauty around that of young Jorg Ancrath. I may have thrown another fairy tale or two into the mix…

I know this is available on Amazon for .99 , a steal!

About Mark Lawrence:

Mark Lawrence is married with four children, one of whom is severely disabled. His day job is as a research scientist focused on various rather intractable problems in the field of artificial intelligence. He has held secret level clearance with both US and UK governments. At one point he was qualified to say ‘this isn’t rocket science … oh wait, it actually is’. Between work and caring for his disabled child, Mark spends his time writing, playing computer games, tending an allotment, brewing beer, and avoiding DIY.


Another great story about a great character. I love him, I hate him, and that is Jorg. The Broken Empire universe is a wonderful thing. I did not know If I would like the, world ended 1100 years ago and the new world is in a medieval setting thing. I have to say I love it. Fantasy, and a little Sci-Fi. I would love to learn more of the “builders” technology. Maybe in some future stories? I have read that Mr. Lawrence plans on writing more short stories about Jorg’s “brothers”. I would be first in line with my money! Mr. Lawrence is a master! Thank You!

5/5 Stars
