Book Review: Road Brothers : Tales from the Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence

Today I will be reviewing Road Brothers : Tales from the Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence

I think by now everyone knows how big a fan of Mark Lawrence I am. I can’t get enough of his books. So naturally when this collection of short stories came out I jumped all over the chance to read more about Jorg and his Road Brothers!

This is a fantastic collection of ten short stories set in Mark Lawrence’s magnificent Broken Empire world. For any fan yearning for more from this series, this will definitely do the trick. These are all fascinating studies of the characters within the series. It is wonderful to get some more insights into the characters and get some additional light shed on bits and pieces in the series. I do not recommend reading this series until you have finished the Broken Empire books, spoilers are everywhere, and everything makes more sense with the prior knowledge of reading the series.

This is yet another epic chapter in the finely crafted universe Mark has created. I really, really hope a print version is not to far off, I must have it for my collection!

As you know if you have read my reviews before I am not about long reviews with synopsis and spoilers. I just give my opinion on my experience with this book and you can take it from there. Now on to the next book.

5/5 STARS!

Now I need to re-read The Broken Empire series, so very good!

This collection is OUT NOW!

So go grab your copy!

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.
