The Ruin of Kings – Jenn Lyons
Kihrin is a bastard orphan who grew up on storybook tales of long-lost princes and grand quests. When he is claimed against his will as the long-lost son of a treasonous prince, Kihrin finds that being a long-lost prince isn’t what the storybooks promised.
Far from living the dream, Kihrin finds himself practically a prisoner, at the mercy of his new family’s power plays and ambitions. He also discovers that the storybooks have lied about a lot of other things, too: dragons, demons, gods, prophecies, true love, and how the hero always wins.
Then again, maybe he’s not the hero, for Kihrin isn’t destined to save the empire.
He’s destined to destroy it…
Why I Can’t Wait:
I first saw the Ruin of Kings mentioned by Goldsboro Books and I knew it would be a book I’d have to buy. I love fantasy and this one sounds incredible. It’s been pretty hyped though which can sometimes be a negative due to all the high expectations readers have, so fingers crossed I enjoy it as much as I hope I will.
