Can’t Wait Wednesday - The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons (@jennlyonsauthor)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Since Jill is no longer hosting it, I'm joining Can’t Wait Wednesday movement over at Wishful Endings.

The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons
Expected publication: February 5, 2019 by Tor Books

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.

Over on the blog they're serializing the first 17 chapters of this, first of a five-book series, so if you can't wait for February . . . get reading!


  1. I'm excited that I have a copy of this. I cannot wait, it's been getting rave reviews already:-) Great choice Bob!

  2. This sounds good. I can't read parts of books early - I'm too impatient. So I'll just have to wait.

  3. I was pretty psyched to receive an ARC of this, the early reviews have been promising.
