Lyons, Jenn - The Ruin of Kings (Chorus of Dragons #1)
The Ruin of Kings unites the worldbuilding of a Brandon Sanderson with the storytelling verve of a Patrick Rothfuss. Prepare to meet the genre's next star. There are the old stories. And then there’s what actually happens. 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 missing 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 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 . . .
