Let's give Jorg a good send off - you won't get to vote for him again!
Prince of Thorns came 10th in 2011 with 1164 votes (George Martin won)
King of Thorns came 4th in 2012 with 4332 votes (Stephen King won)
Can Emperor medal against opposition like Robert Jordan, Neil Gaiman, Scot Lynch and Peter Brett? Um... doubtful, but it certainly won't happen without your vote!
If you know me at all you'll know I'm going to make info graphics about this! Here are the numbers of ratings the ten most rated nominees have.
Emperor of Thorns is there on about 2,500 and Neil Gaiman's book has 58,000 ...
So... not looking so hot for a top 3 spot... The competition is red hot this year! But forget quantity... how about quality? Here are the top ten by average ratings.
But of course all this needs context. When did these books show up?
So all in all. Gaiman is nailed on for #1, Jordan is nailed on for #2 and I suspect Brett or Lynch will take the 3rd spot, although there are other contenders, including Emperor of Thorns.
If you liked Emperor of Thorns and want to send Jorg off in style, your vote will be much appreciated!
