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

You can have everything you want if you sacrifice everything you believe.

Kihrin D'Mon is a wanted man.

Since he destroyed the Stone of Shackles and set demons free across Quur, he has been on the run from the wrath of an entire empire. His attempt to escape brings him into the path of Janel Theranon, a mysterious Joratese woman who claims to know Kihrin.

Janel's plea for help pits Kihrin against all manner of dangers: a secret rebellion, a dragon capable of destroying an entire city, and Kihrin's old enemy, the wizard Relos Var.

Janel believes that Relos Var possesses one of the most powerful artifacts in the world—the Cornerstone called the Name of All Things. And if Janel is right, then there may be nothing in the world that can stop Relos Var from getting what he wants.

And what he wants is Kihrin D'Mon.

Jenn Lyons continues the Chorus of Dragons series withThe Name of All Things, the epic sequel toThe Ruin of Kings

Formerly a video game producer, she now spends her days writing fantasy. A long-time devotee of storytelling, she traces her geek roots back to playing first edition Dungeons & Dragons in grade school and reading her way from A to Z in the school's library.

“An impressive and highly accomplished debut . . . both an ideal introduction to epic fantasy and a rewarding read for fans of the genre.”—The Los Angeles Times

“Ms. Lyons is all set to take her readers on a long journey indeed, unfolding and unfolding like brillian origami. So far, though, not a hairy chest in sight, nor a languishing maiden. Fantasy has moved on, and is all the better for it.”—The Wall Street Journal

"[A] jaw-dropping, action-packed story of betrayal, greed, and grand-scale conspiracy . . . 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

“Tightly plotted . . . will leave epic fantasy fans eager for the second volume.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“I couldn't stop. It's smart, it's innovative, it has absolutely bonkers action, and it has just enough humor to keep it from being too grim. it's irresistible, in other words. So don't resist. Just get ready.”—Geekly
