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.

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!!!

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?

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.

new favorite

Better that the first. The series has become intriguing as the story line has developed. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. Jenn Lyons is something special.

The name of all things

The characters in this book were quite unique. The narrator did a great job of making this adventure exciting.
