The most anticipated fantasy debut of the year. 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 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 Reviews

La nostra recensione

Though the hero's journey structure and classical fantasy elements are familiar, the complex mysteries and revelations feel novel and offer plenty of room for rereading and analysis. There's more mystery than action in this tightly plotted tome, and its lore and memorable characters will leave epic fantasy fans eager for the second volume -- Publishers Weekly starred review In a sprawling, magic-filled world populated by gods, dragons, krakens, witches, demons, ghosts, shape-shifters, zombies, and so much more, Lyons ties it all together seamlessly to create literary magic. Epic fantasy fans looking for a virtually un-put-down-able read should look no further -- Kirkus starred review The Ruin of Kings revs up with the glitz of a high-speed, multi-level video game, with extreme magic -- Janny Wurts The Ruin of Kings is a fascinating story about a compellingly conflicted young hero in an intriguingly complex world -- L. E. Modesitt, Jr. A fantastic page-turner with a heady blend of great characters, fast-moving action and a fabulously inventive magic system . . . I loved it * John Gwynne * It was one hell of a ride -- Glen Cook What an extraordinary book. The Ruin of Kings is everything epic fantasy should be: rich, cruel, gorgeous, brilliant, enthralling and deeply deeply satisfying. I loved it -- Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians
