Summary:

Simmering in Patagonian myth, The Tenth Girl is a gothic psychological thriller with a haunting twist.

At the very southern tip of South America looms an isolated finishing school. Legend has it that the land will curse those who settle there. But for Mavi—a bold Buenos Aires native fleeing the military regime that took her mother—it offers an escape to a new life as a young teacher to Argentina’s elite girls.

Mavi tries to embrace the strangeness of the imposing house—despite warnings not to roam at night, threats from an enigmatic young man, and rumors of mysterious Others. But one of Mavi’s ten students is missing, and when students and teachers alike begin to behave as if possessed, the forces haunting this unholy cliff will no longer be ignored.

One of these spirits holds a secret that could unravel Mavi’s existence. In order to survive she must solve a cosmic mystery—and then fight for her life.

*Blog Tour- Review + Giveaway* The Ruin of Kings- Jenn Lyons

Welcome to our official stop on the blog our. We hope you enjoy!!

39863237     There are the old stories. And then there’s what actually happens.

Kihrin is a bastard orphan who grew up on storybook tales of long-lost princes and grand quests. When he is claimed against his will as the long-lost son of a treasonous prince, Kihrin finds that being a long-lost prince isn’t what the storybooks promised.

Far from living the dream, Kihrin finds himself practically a prisoner, at the mercy of his new family’s power plays and ambitions. He also discovers that the storybooks have lied about a lot of other things things, too: dragons, demons, gods, prophecies, true love, and how the hero always wins.

Then again, maybe he’s not the hero, for Kihrin isn’t destined to save the empire.

He’s destined to destroy it . . .

Uniting the worldbuilding of a Brandon Sanderson with the storytelling verve of a Patrick Rothfuss, debut author Jenn Lyons delivers an entirely new and captivating fantasy epic. Prepare to meet the genre’s next star.

My Review:
”The mountain will bury you in lava, the molten rocks will be your tomb. You will spend eternity screaming in despair and pain. You will never know peace.”

Imagine everything you’ve been told and taught was a total fabrication. And the only way you learn the truth is with total destruction and gore. This is exactly how Kihrin learns the truth. That maybe he isn’t supposed to be that hero but the villain who sets the world ablaze.

The characters were really built up and you learn so much about them in such a short period of time. The backstories were something that continued to grow and I don’t think we’re quite done yet. But the different pov’s was a tad bit confusing and takes some time to get used to but once you make it things start to get better.

The Ruin of Kings is a slow-burn complex epic fantasy with fascinating world building and a dark, deep storyline that is rather unique. Fantasy lovers will rejoice at this said-be hero who was truly meant for villainy.

Beware of the Demon who screams at you in all caps!!
