About the book

The Ruin of Kings is the first book in Jenn Lyons's incredible Godslayer Cycle.

What if you weren't the hero?

As a bards apprentice, Kihrin grew up with tales of legendary deeds. He also steals, desperate to buy a way out of Quurs slums. Then he raids the wrong house, hes marked by a demon and life will never be the same again.

Kihrins plight brings him to the attention of royalty, who claim him as the lost son of their immoral prince. But far from living the dream, Kihrins at the mercy of his new familys ruthless ambitions. However, escaping his jewelled cage just makes matters worse. Kihrin is horrified to learn hes at the centre of an ancient prophecy. And every side from gods and demons to dragons and mages want him as their pawn. Those old stories lied about many things too, especially the myth that the hero always wins.

Then again, maybe Kihrin isnt the hero, for hes not destined to save the empire.

Hes destined to destroy it.
