From the critically acclaimed author of PRINCE OF FOOLS comes the second volume of the brilliant new epic fantasy series THE RED UEEN’S WAR'If you like dark you will love Mark Lawrence And when the light breaks through and it all makes sense the contrast is gorgeous' ROBIN HOBBThe Re. 255 StarsIt pained me to say this but The Liar s Key is sadly an unworthy seuel to Prince of Fools for meI am clearly in the minority here with my rating and opinion I gave Prince of Fools a 45 out of 5 stars it s in my opinion Mark s best work up to date The Liar s Key is almost the exact opposite of that situationThe plot of the book started 6 months after the end of Prince of Fools and it revolves around Loki s Key or in other name The Liar s Key a key that s capable of opening any doors and sought by only the most powerful people in the Broken Empire such as the Dead King and the Red ueen Picture Liar s Key French cover editionThere is one thing specifically that didn t work out for me in the book the direction of the plot To say the least it s extremely boring and repetitiveHere s how it goes most of the time The first half consists of Jalan and the gang seafaring and travelling again arrive at shore Jalan get captured break free repeat until the end of first half When the characters finally finished their travel the plot actually didn t get better but surprisingly it became even boringThe main strength of Prince of Fools for me lies within Jalan and Snorri s interaction and friendship I love how contrast their friendship are and how Snorri s good behavior affected Jalan s bad attitudes basically this duo is the number 1 factor on why I love Prince of Fools Now my ualm with the 2nd half of the book is Jalan and Snorri weren t together from the halfway mark until the last part of the book The time Jalan spent alone without Snorri may be one of the most boring sections I ever read in any fantasy book especially his time in FlorenceVague world building and the fact that the Broken Empire took place on Earth aside the entire section in Florence surrounding Jalan s talk about gambling Poker and banking made me feel like I was reading a contemporary novel it s not even a fantasy book any during this part for me The pacing was also so dragging that I need to put the book down after each chapter almost every time I actually had to push myself to finish this book because I kept on hoping to love this book after what I get in the first bookIt s not all bad of course there are some great parts in The Liar s Key which made my feeling about this book even conflictedThe best part of this book is definitely Jalan s and Alica Kendeth s The Red ueen past Although I don t like the fact that they were again being told in almost the same direction with Broken Empire through dreams both of their background revelations this time were written greatly All the sections revolving around these two character background gave so much depth to their characters and compelling to read It s a marvelous addition to finally see how Jalan and the Red ueen behave as a kid before both of them became the way they are now Still children hope in ways adults find hard to imagine They carry their dreams before them fragile in both arms waiting for the world to trip them The new side characters that appeared here Kara and Hennant turns out to be interesting than I thought they would be Finally the last 10% of the book were fantastic Not only it ended on a cliffhanger the cliffhanger somehow ended up being both funny and compelling as well there s no way I can stop reading this series after thatMy experience reading this book can be said as eually divided The amount of parts I love and dislike is almost the same However I can definitely say that it s not a worthy seuel to the fantastic Prince of Fools I m starting to think that Mark Lawrence s books just don t work for me despite how much I wanted them too Up until now I ve read 6 books written by him only 2 of them managed to reach a 4 stars rating the rest is sadly around 2 35 stars I do however will read Wheel of Osheim the last book in the trilogy first before I confirm my theory on the matter

Summary The Liar's Key

The Liar's Key

L 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 doorAs 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 ru. This was an enjoyable read with great world building exciting adventures and intriguing stuff going on behind the scenes that was somewhat frustrated by my issues with the protagonist The world building really took off in this one after some promising signs in the first book I really liked how the current state of the world is set against the back drop of the fallout from a nuclear war the day of a thousand suns and how civilization is shown to have been slowly and painfully re built I also liked how the central conflict between the Lady Blue and the Red ueen was further developed and we got information about the 2 sides and what they want It was also cool that some of the mysteries from the previous books were answered such as Jalan s mother s death which was shown as part of a really cool flashback seuence while some were left to be answered in the next book who the hell is Taproot the mysterious circus owner I kind of wish that the central conflict and dynastic struggles had received screen time in favour of all of the journeying and adventures While the adventures were mostly entertaining they were nowhere near as compelling as the plotting and scheming that is supposed to determine the fate of the world My main problem with this book and my only major complaints was with the protagonist Jalan At first I thought it was really cool that the main character was such a knobhead as I m a big fan of anti heroes and I was looking forward to seeing what kind of interesting dynamics such an unusual main character would open up But after 2 books I ve gradually gotten sick of the sole POV character being a 2 D caricature of selfishness cowardice and general dickishness without any meaningful character development He s gone from having great potential as a uniue character to interesting to amusing to tolerable to advance the story to making continuing the book a struggle I normally love reading about anti heroes and probably sympathize with them than I should but Jal always annoyed me It reminds me of a debate I saw one time about whether you d rather have prime Randy Moss or Terrell Owens on your team I went with TO instinctively because I never liked Moss s taking plays off attitude but one of the lads in the debate pointed out that while Moss might sometimes be lazy and that could effect morale to some extent he was never the huge disruptive force in a locker room TO was not uite sure how to tie this analogy in right now but I get the feeling it s important somehow A lot of anti heroes might be objectively worse than Jal but I ll always instinctively prefer a guy who does terrible things for at least somewhat good reasons revenge as the only way to stop worse people to Jal who has just been a petty dickwad for 2 books now For example in The Searchers which I just watched over the Chistmas John Wayne s character is a bitter abrasive racist who seems concerned with killing Indians than rescuing his niecebut he s also brave capable and determined and he s motivated by a genuine if twisted love for his family and sense of honour so despite all of his failings I still felt sympathy and admiration for him In comparison Jal is a painfully shallow character and the only emotions I ve felt towards him after about 800 pages are annoyance and distaste Back on the bright side the cast of secondary characters was much stronger than in the previous book Tuttugu the cowardly but loyal Viking was a really entertaining and sympathetic character view spoiler and his death was both shocking and horrific hide spoiler Screenwalks 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 doorAs 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 ru.

    5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum ’s official; The Liar’s Key is probably my favorite work by Mark Lawrence to date surpassing even my love for the entire Broken Empire trilogy It’s also stronger than its predecessor Prince of Fools which I rated highly as well but I was never able to shake the feeling that the first book of Prince Jalan’s adventures was still missing a little something – it didn’t read as fluidly as i
