The Discord of Gods

Multiple points of view, ambitious reincarnated character arcs, and copious swords and sorcery create an enthralling world in this conclusion to Lyons’s “A Chorus of Dragons” series (following The House of Always). Kihrin D’Mon has successfully integrated with the damaged mind of Vol Karoth and freed himself from his prison. His original plan to stop Relos Var—his nemesis and reincarnated brother—from destroying the existing Immortals and ruling the world is getting stymied by the multiple players on this life board, including his closest loved ones, and the fact that Kihrin’s new body will literally destroy anything it touches. As Relos Var continues on his path of universal domination, he prepares to face off against the demon Xaltorath, who is ready to take their power from the Afterlife across the boundaries. Kihrin’s allies struggle not to let a war distract them from the real problems, and no one is sure who can be trusted in this final battle for survival.
VERDICT Lyons wraps up “A Chorus of Dragons” by binding all the sprawling plotlines together in an incredibly satisfying epic fantasy adventure.
