    I picked up Prince of thorns on a whim when looking for something new to read. Was instantly hooked. Mark is a fantastic writer and deserves to be seated with the greats.

    Picked up Prince of Thorns in Tesco of all places years ago. Wasn’t even looking for a book for myself, was in need of something for the kids. Hooked on his work ever since.

    I had finished The Red Queen’s War trilogy about a year earlier, had read the hell out of The Broken Empire (especially King of Thorns. SO good!) and had the itch to read another Mark Lawrence book. Literally the day after I got the itch I found Red Sister and fell in love with it.

    I got Red Sister in a book subscription box, and I’m ashamed to say I left it for a while. My tbr was long, and because I’d never heard of it(again, I’m sorry) I didn’t prioritize it. THEN I decided to bring it on a trip home for a funeral (que soppy story) and I devoured it. It took me out of the shitty reality I was in, and I managed to process my own sorrow somewhat by reading it. I read a lot of books last year, but Red Sister stayed with me, it didn’t have any plot points that seemed meaningless, it wasn’t a romantic twist that would have annoyed me to no end, it was just a really well developed fantasy book that gave me exactly what I needed at that point. I’ve told so many of my friends to read it, I’ve praised it at work, at home and wherever I could find people I felt would appreciate it. And I also just really want to read the rest of the series as soon as possible!

    I picked up ‘Prince of Thorns’, it wasn’t my usual thing which is usually pure space opera science fiction. I read it in one sitting. And have been reading all the follow-ons ‘religiously’. I just can’t help myself. The prose is just perfect for me. Looking so forward to ‘Grey Sister’.

    Having read all his books before I read it I thought Red Sister was a prequel to his other books.
    Instead I was transported to another fascinating world, an unusual convent and discovered the mysterious paths within.
    The problem with reading living authors who are still creating is the wait and I am damned impatient.

    What made me pick up a copy of Red Sister? Mark Lawrence wrote it! That’s why!

    Years ago I was reviewing a Goodreads list and picked up Prince of Thorns based on the positive reviews. I vividly remember reading the final page, closing the book and saying “wow”. I found Mark Lawrence on Facebook back in early 2013 just to tell him how much I loved the book. Since then I have diligently picked up each new novel as it is released and thoroughly enjoyed them all. Jorg, Jalan and the Broken Empire are awesome but I found Nona more fascinating and eagerly anticipate what will happen next!

    Lawrence’s Thorn trilogy is one of the most original pieces I’ve heard of or read – killer characters with the constant “one more page” pace. Had to call a sick day to finish Emperor of Thorns. Couldn’t pass the Fool trilogy and won’t pass anything else he writes!

    I was looking forward to Red Sister as soon as I heard about it, having very much enjoyed Marks other work. Not only was I keen to get taken away with a new story, but I was also interested in how Mark handled the change in point of view, from his previous first person to Red Sisters third. Needless to say, it was a superb read and there wasn’t a single ‘clunk’ in the POV change, it was smooth and engaging and well worth the five stars I gave it.

    After having enjoyed the Broken Empire trilogy, as well as the Red Queen’s War series, of course I’d pick up Red Sister. Wasn’t disappointed, either, as it’s easily just as good as Mark’s other work.

    Because he made me care for a horrid, killer, psychopath in The Broken Empire, and he made me love a self centered, coward in The Red Queen’s War. I had no doubts that he had honed his writing skills on those series and that whatever characters and story he had created for his third series, Book of the Ancestor, would be even more compelling.

    I don’t remember if I have commented previously. If so, I apologize for doing so again.

    I woke up after a wild night in the devil’s playhouses of suburban Devon, three days later and 70 miles from home. My pockets were empty, my shoes missing, and large patches of body hair shaved clean away.
    All I had with me was a canvas bag containing a compass, a bottle of water, and this book.

    But I had a hangover and didn’t feel up to much, so I decided to take a seat under a tree and read the whole thing in one sitting. I’m still there now. Waiting for the next one to show up.

    My brother (the awesome Rob J. Hayes – go read his books if you haven’t already 🙂) gave me a copy of Prince of Thorns. I loved the trilogy so chances of me not reading more of Mark Lawrence’s books were extremely slim (like maybe if I died!). Red Sister came up on a kindle special offer and I grabbed it. It’s taken me a while to get to it due to alpha reader commitments and Arlen Bales’ antics but I can’t put it down.

    Red Sister was my 1st Mark Lawrence book. It really grabbed my attention by having a likable lead character that didn’t do what you would expect. The cast is mostly female which in a lot of settings can be catty and predictable but not here. The characters were played well off each other and often made me relate to them.. I very much enjoyed the unique world building at the convent with the harsh backdrop of the cold closing in. Looking forward to the next installment.

I really liked the way Red Sister turned out, the interaction of characters and how they were all important in one way or another to the book whether Nona met them a long time ago or much more recently. (they all appeared/popped up again later) 🙂
