I found this book to be both disturbing and enthralling, and even more disturbing because it's so enthralling. If I'd had a clue what Prince of Thorns
was really about, then probably I wouldn't have started reading it. My brother had given me his copy and told me I had to read it. So I did. It is a very fast-paced and gruesome tale of a fourteen-year-old boy's epic journey of vengeance. I found his age to be a bit improbable given the things he says and does, but I took it in stride, just as I did with the kids in the A Song of Fire and Ice Series
, because I've never had member of my family murdered in front of me. Maybe Jorg's brand of hatred at such a young age is possible. What I can say is that it's very well-written, and I'm eager to start the next book so I can find out what the hell Jorg gets up to next.
