"I'm a liar and a cheat and a coward, but I will never, ever, let a friend down. Unless of course not letting them down requires honesty, fair play, or bravery." Those words introduce us to Prince Jalan Kendeth, the central character in Mark Lawrence's Broken Empire trilogy, but even they are not complete: Jalan is also a heavy drinker, a gambler, and a well-known seducer of women. With all those traits in tow, the tenth in line for the Red March throne seems an unlikely hero in the coming war against the vast and ruthless army of the Dead King. A tantalizing series starter.
