Readux: Sweet Home, Broken Empire Edition

In true Mark Lawrence fashion, The Liar’s Key keeps hurtling right along where the first book left off, with approximately ten pages of gentle introduction before Jalan is running for his life towards a small Viking boat with two very large Vikings in it.


The past few months have been a funny ol’ time. Maybe it was because of Christmas, which has a tendency to bring out my starry-eyed childhood nostalgia. Maybe it had to do with the fact that I read a number of books in a row that were a return to characters or places I already knew.
