Dear gentle readers out in social isolation, if you are anything like me, you have likely been turning to your comforts in this time of uncertainty: fantasy, weapons, fighting, bacon. Or you know…other things like alcohol, chocolate, movies, and most definitely books. My first quarantine review is for none other than The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons, a book which asks the question, “What if you weren’t the hero?”
The Ruin of Kings is a bold and awe-inspiring work. It rattles the bones as it imprints upon the senses battles for the human soul and for ancient kingdoms. Behold a literary maelstrom that will devour you whole.
