What if you were imprisoned for all eternity? In the aftermath of the Ritual of Night, everything has changed. The Eight Immortals have catastrophically failed to stop Kihrin’s enemies, who are moving forward with their plans to free Vol Karoth, the King of Demons. Kihrin has his own ideas about how to fight back, but even if he’s willing to sacrifice everything for victory, the cost may prove too high for his allies. Now they face a choice: can they save the world while saving Kihrin too? Or will they be forced to watch as he becomes the very evil they had all sworn to destroy? The House of Always is the fourth book in Jenn Lyons’s series A Chorus of Dragons. Praise for A Chorus of Dragons ‘I loved it’ Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians ‘A larger-than-life adventure story about thieves, wizards, assassins and kings’ New York TimesShow more
Could this life be their last? The city of Atrine lies in ruins. And now Relos Var has revealed his plan to free the monstrous god, Vol Karoth, the end of the world is closer than ever. To buy time for humanity, Kihrin and his friends need to convince a king to perform an ancient ritual. The power released would imprison the god for an age to come. But this may come at too high a price for the King of the Vane, as the ritual would strip his people of their immortality. As a result, some will do anything to prevent this ritual – including assassinating those championing this solution. Worse, Kihrin must come to terms with a horrifying possibility. It seems his connection to Vol Karoth is growing in strength . . . but what does it mean? And how can Kihrin hope to save his world, when he might be the greatest threat of all? The Memory of Souls is the third book in A Chorus of Dragons by Jenn Lyons. 'Everything epic fantasy should be: rich, cruel, gorgeous, brilliant, enthralling and deeply deeply satisfying. I loved it' - Lev Grossman on The Ruin of Kings 'Lyons braids multiple points of view, tenses, and time lines into a richly detailed and elaborate story with increasing tension and stakes' - Library Journal starred reviewShow more
Prophesy and magic combine in this powerful epic of imperial politics, dragons, gods and demons. You can have everything you want. If you sacrifice everything you believe . . . Kihrin D'Mon is a wanted man after killing the Emperor of Quur - and not in a good way. So he heads for Jorat, to find the fourth person named in prophesy, who will either save or damn the world. He meets Janel Theranon, who claims she already knows him. And she wants Kihrin's help in saving Jorat's capital from a dragon, who can only be slain with his sword's magic. Unwittingly, Kirin also finds himself at the centre of a rebellion. One which puts him in direct opposition to Relos Var, his old enemy. For too long, Janel's battled the wizard alone - even betraying her ideals to bring him down. However, Var owns one of the world's most powerful artefacts: the Name of All Things. It bestows knowledge, which Var uses to gain what he wants most. This is now Kihrin D'Mon - and the world may not survive the consequences. The Name of All Things is book two in Jenn Lyons' thrilling epic fantasy series, A Chorus of Dragons, which began with The Ruin of Kings. 'What an extraordinary book . . . everything epic fantasy should be: rich, cruel, gorgeous, brilliant, enthralling and deeply deeply satisfying. I loved it' Lev Grossman on The Ruin of Kings (book one) 'Lyons proves she is worthy of comparison to other masters of epic fantasy, such as Patrick Rothfuss, Stephen R. Donaldson . . . and Melanie Rawn' Booklist on The Name of All Things (starred review)Show more
The most anticipated fantasy debut of 2019. In this thunderously good read, prophecy and magic combine in an incredible epic of imperial politics, gods and demons. When destiny calls, there's no fighting back . . . As a bard's apprentice, Kihrin grew up with tales of legendary deeds. He also steals, desperate to buy a way out of Quur's slums. Then he raids the wrong house, he's marked by a demon and life will never be the same again. Kihrin's plight brings him to the attention of royalty, who claim him as the lost son of their immoral prince. But far from living the dream, Kihrin's at the mercy of his new family's ruthless ambitions. However, escaping his jewelled cage just makes matters worse. Kihrin is horrified to learn he's at the centre of an ancient prophecy. And every side - from gods and demons to dragons and mages - want him as their pawn. Those old stories lied about many things too, especially the myth that the hero always wins. Then again, maybe Kihrin isn't the hero, for he's not destined to save the empire. He's destined to destroy it. The Ruin of Kings is the first book in Jenn Lyons's extraordinary new series, A Chorus of Dragons. 'What an extraordinary book . . . enthralling and deeply, deeply satisfying. I loved it' Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians 'A fantastic page-turner with a heady blend of great characters' John Gwynne, author of A Time of Dread 'A virtually un-put-down-able read' Kirkus ReviewsShow more
