Publisher's Summary

"Everything epic fantasy should be: rich, cruel, gorgeous, brilliant, enthralling and deeply, deeply satisfying. I loved it." (Lev Grossman on The 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 with The Name of All Things, the epic sequel to The Ruin of Kings

Why do Authors stab themselves?

Liked the first book and was really looking forward to this one and even the third when it came out on Audible. Sadly I cant be bothered to finish it. I really really dislike Authors who wish to push their views on others. It's not even that I disagree with them but this is supposed to be a good place to escape into fantasy and imagination. It's like traveling through the wilderness with boon companions on their way to steel the dragons gold only to be hit by a yellow school bus before entering the dragons lair. The school bus has no business in that story LBGT and Sjw has no business in the story. Way to kill your own popularity just to pander to few special groups.

Fantastic sequel

The Name of All Things managed to be even better and more surprising than The Ruin of Kings. Readers are thrown in different directions trying to piece the story together just to have all their expectations thrown out of the window.
Now I’m even more intrigued to see what Jenn Lyons has up her sleeve.
I liked the former narrator ( the one that did Kihrin’s voice in RoK better) but the new one are good too.

Female/Male/Binary or Mare/Stallion/Gelding

The 1st book was interesting and I wanted to hear what happened to all these reincarnated Gods, their children & dead Ex's. Magic is always fun to hear about & I enjoyed listening to the story of the underdog boy who would "save the world".

Now, the 2nd book brought in all kinds of strangeness. With gender & sexual preferences for the author's characters & their horses, I'm left wondering why the author insists on pushing her LGBT agenda through horses?

Brilliant book. Fantastic narrators.

Dragons. Witches. Prophecies. Gods. Wizards. Demons. Bandits. Firebloods. - You can all find them here.

The Name Of All Things is a brilliant second installment in the 'A Chorus of Dragons' series by the amazing Jenn Lyons. It's like an introduction to the new set of characters as they tell their adventures to Kihrin D'Mon in a tavern. Some of the characters from The Ruin Of Kings also have a minor appearance here. I love the way it was written and the humorous footnotes make this more enjoyable to read. Surely this is one of my best reads so far this year.

I love the voices of the narrators. They really added life to the book.

Amazing. Timely. Fresh.

Don’t listen to sad people who cannot fathom trans people existing in a work with magic and dragons and all sorts of fantastical elements. They clearly lack imagination. Jen Lyons though? She doesn’t.
This story builds beautifully on the last, even holding on to the unique story structure. The world is full and vibrant and diverse. Truly a masterclass.

Terrible. Would not buy this. Returned.

Hits you with Social justice and gender politics. This has nothing to do with fantasy. This bullsshit has got to stop.

Still feels intentionally convoluted...

voice actors are great and carry this book, weird political approach to gender seems pushed for the time of release and the story remains to be messy with the thousands of names for everyone and every event

off a cliff

Boo, this book was terrible. Huge drop-off from the first book. Story just drags and meanders.

Great read

I enjoyed this story very much. I have adhd, so it did get hard to follow sometimes and feel like the main plot was a bit drug out with the story within a story going on, but all in all, I was still pleased. the ruin of kings remains to be my favorite so far, but I'm excited for the final installment.

A Sequel that Matches the Action in First Book!

A new cast of voice actors, but the performance matched both the story and the action of the first book!!!
