Prophesy and magic combine in The Name of All Things, Jenn Lyons' 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This follow up to Lyon's brilliant debut takes a similar, assured (and sassy) narrative approach as The Ruin of Kings . . . Lyons proves she is worthy of comparison to other masters of epic fantasy, such as Patrick Rothfuss, Stephen R. Donaldson (particularly in GrandGuignol action), and Melanie Rawn -- Booklist starred review
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 on The Ruin of Kings
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 on The Ruin of Kings
It was one hell of a ride -- Glen Cook on The Ruin of Kings
The Ruin of Kings is a fascinating story about a compellingly conflicted young hero in an intriguingly complex world -- L. E. Modesitt Jr. on The Ruin of Kings
The Ruin of Kings revs up with the glitz of a high-speed, multi-level video game, with extreme magic -- Janny Wurts on The Ruin of Kings
It's impossible not to be impressed with the ambition of it all, the sheer, effervescent joy Lyons takes in the scope of her project. Sometimes you just want a larger-than-life adventure story about thieves, wizards, assassins and kings -- New York Times on The Ruin of Kings
It's an impressive and highly accomplished debut . . . The Ruin of Kings makes both an ideal introduction to the epic fantasy and a rewarding read for fans of the genre -- LA Times on The Ruin of Kings
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 on The Ruin of Kings
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 on The Ruin of Kings

This is a really solid and entertaining second entry in a very intricately plotted and fascinating series. Here in book 2, Lyons retains the flashback structure for the narrative and we find Kirhin trapped in a bar... More
