The Liar’s Key, the second book of the Red Queen’s War series by Mark Lawrence, is out in the U.S. today from Ace Books!
Winter is keeping Prince Jalan Kendeth far from the longed-for luxuries of his southern palace. And although the North may be home to his companion, the warrior Snorri ver Snagason, he is just as eager to leave. For the Viking is ready to challenge all of Hell to bring his wife and children back into the living world. He has Loki’s key – now all he needs is to find the door.
As all wait for the ice to unlock its jaws, the Dead King plots to claim what was so nearly his – the key into the world – so that the dead can rise and rule.

“The dialogue is a humorous, frightening lullaby that flawlessly depicts this dark, disturbing universe and its meticulously constructed characters, both friends and fiends.”
“For those who have not read it, the Broken Empire series is an excellent fantasy series, one that take the reader right to the edge, page after page…. and yet I have found myself enjoying the Red Queen’s War much more.”
“The Liar’s Key is Mark Lawrence’s most solid effort thus far!”
“This is a great second book in the series. Lawrence takes what we already know and with his own inimitable style continues to layer extra goodness on top. “

I’m halfway through Liar’s Key and love it! Trying to hold back tears last night. Oh, Jalan! I knew there was more to you than meets the eye!
On another topic, I LOVE that sculpture!! When I saw your picture (above) with just a part of it, I immediately wondered what it was. Thought those looked like oars or fins? Thanks for posting the link to the pictures of the entire sculpture. I’ll have to go see it if I ever make it across the pond!
