Jenn Lyons’ The Name of All Things is the sequel to The Ruin of Kings and the second book in the A Chorus of Dragons series. Unlike the first book, which followed the story of Kihrin D’Mon, The Name of All Things primarily tells the story of Janel Theranon, a mysterious character introduced near the end of The Ruin of Kings. The stories happen nearly concurrently with the majority of the interlude chapters moving forward the timeline while the last quarter of the book advances their collective narrative.
