J. B. Brown is no stranger to loss and hardship—he served in the British Army for twenty-six long years. With this poetry collection, The Blood of Kings, Brown brings that suffering into clarity. In jagged emotion and with evocative language, he reflects on what it means to be a man, a poet, a soldier, and a friend simultaneously. Navigating the push-and-pull of all of those roles in his life, Brown covers death, religion, friendship, war, loss, and love with an understandably dark, yet passionate philosophical outlook in his poems.
 
Juxtaposing joy and pain amid terrible violence, The Blood of Kings offers and incredibly authentic and raw voice.
