I had no idea what this series was called, but I meant to make a thread for it months ago.
First book is pretty good, and once you get in to the POV it's great.
Second book is great, and by the end is outstanding. Jorg Ancrath is one of my favorite fantasy characters of all time. Almost entirely based on this second book. I don't want to spoil shit, and I really want folks to read this series. So I'll go generic. Jorg Ancrath is probably one of the best torn characters ever, he is NOT a good person. His motives are questionable, but his goal is good. Probably.
Guh, I just deleted multiple sentences praising the books because they would be spoilers. So here's me keeping it generic.
Do you want a fantasy series with a protagonist who is nuanced and NOT a generic good guy? In a world that is not even vaguely generic fantasy? Good! Start reading Prince of Thorns!
