Mark Lawrence - King of Thorns Fragments

Via the blog of Mark Lawrence, we receive the first fragment from his upcoming novel, the second book in the Broken Empire series, The King of Thorns:

"Brother Kent
In the red ruin of battle Brother Kent oft looks to have stepped from hell. Though in another life he would have tilled his fields and died abed, mourned by grandchildren. In combat Red Kent possesses a clarity that terrifies and lays waste. In all else he is a man confused by his own contradictions – a killer’s instincts married to a farmer’s soul. Not tall, not broad, but packed solid and quick, wide cheekbones, dark eyes flat with murder, bitten lips, scarred hands, thick-fingered, loyalty and the need to be loyal written through him."

I cannot wait for this book. Prince of Thorns was one of my favourite reads of 2011. Come on August!
