"Everything epic fantasy should be: rich, cruel, gorgeous, brilliant, enthralling and deeply, deeply satisfying. I loved it."—Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians

When destiny calls, there's no fighting back.

Kihrin grew up in the slums of Quur, a thief and a minstrel's son raised on tales of long-lost princes and magnificent quests. When he is claimed against his will as the missing son of a treasonous prince, Kihrin finds himself at the mercy of his new family's ruthless power plays and political ambitions.

Practically a prisoner, Kihrin discovers that being a long-lost prince is nothing like what the storybooks promised. The storybooks have lied about a lot of other things, too: dragons, demons, gods, prophecies, and how the hero always wins.

Then again, maybe he isn't the hero after all. For Kihrin is not destined to save the world.

He's destined to destroy it.

Jenn Lyons begins the Chorus of Dragons series with The Ruin of Kings, an epic fantasy novel about a man who discovers his fate is tied to the future of an empire.

"It's impossible not to be impressed with the ambition of it all . . . a larger-than-life adventure story about thieves, wizards, assassins and kings to dwell in for a good long while."—The New York Times

    Fantastic world filled with hero’s heroes and evil villains. Couldn’t put this book down but didn’t want the story to end.
  • A Captivating Adventure

    From the start, this adventure had me. Told from two different perspectives that come crashing to a violent and surprising conclusion. The author does an amazing job with character builds along with multiple twists and turns. There’s plenty of action, intrigue, magic and suspense to keep one very drawn to what happens next. There’s gods, demons, multiple races and classes that bring this epic to life. There’s no golden hero to save the day here, everyone has their secrets....it’s up to you to read on and discover them all.

    As an avid reader of Fantasy, I have to say that this was one of the best books I have read in a very long time. Unexpected turns, a fresh approach to magic and rich political intrigue all make this one not to miss. Diving in to book 2 now.
