Memory of Souls
by Lyons, Jenn

The Memory of Souls is the third epic fantasy in Jenn Lyons' Chorus of Dragons series and one of Library Journal's best SF&F books of the year!


Now that Relos Var's plans have been revealed and demons are free to rampage across the empire, the fulfillment of the ancient prophecies-and the end of the world-is closer than ever.

To buy time for humanity, Kihrin needs to convince the king of the Manol vané to perform an ancient ritual which will strip the entire race of their immortality, but it's a ritual which certain vané will do anything to prevent. Including assassinating the messengers.

Worse, Kihrin must come to terms with the horrifying possibility that his connection to the king of demons, Vol Karoth, is growing steadily in strength.

How can he hope to save anyone when he might turn out to be the greatest threat of them all?

Jenn Lyons lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband, three cats and a nearly infinite number of opinions on anything from Sumerian mythology to the correct way to make a martini. Lyons traces her geek roots back to playing first edition Dungeons & Dragons in grade school and reading her way from A to Z in the school's library. Formerly an art director and video game producer, she now spends her days writing fantasy.

*Starred Review* The third book of the remarkable Chorus of Dragons series (after The Name of All Things, 2019) continues to explore the intertwined relationships among those struggling against the growing power of Val Karoth, King of Demons. Kihrin's parents, Therin and Khaeriel, are back to help her reclaim her throne, with a little assistance (and hindrance) from mimic/demon, Talon. A ritual that has worked to contain Val Karoth in the past seems to be losing power each time it is invoked. Nevertheless, the Eight Eternals demand that it be used one more time, despite the risk to the last immortal human race, the vane. On the edges of the various missions looms Relos Var, wizard and dragon. Kihrin, along with Teraeth, Thurvishar, and Janel, are beginning to remember their past lives, which provides a map of whom to trust as they work with the gods and leaders-legitimate and not-of the Manol vane, and who will betray them. Lyons has cleverly taken the epic fantasy tropes of prophecy and lineage and stood them on their heads, all while delving deep into her multidimensional characters and spinning great battles with high body counts.
