The Name of All Things (A Chorus of Dragons #2)
Lyon’s second /Chorus of Dragons/ book, The Name of All Things, is recorded this time by Senera, one of Relos Var’s associates, and the majority consists of Janel and Qown telling Kihrin their story, in a bid to gain his assistance. First off, I loved Senera’s footnotes! Even more than Thurvishar’s notations in Ruin of Kings, these were full of deliciously sarcastic humor. The last maybe one-fourth of the book was a return to the present, and an epic battle. I might not agree with Var’s methods, but through Senera, Janel, and Qown’s eyes, one begins to see a much more complex and complicated adversary. Var is older than most realize, and with his gift and curse of longevity, Var sees time differently. I’ll be interested to see if he continues as the villain in the next book. We get to see more Cornerstones! Qown has Worldhearth, which allows him to spy or communicate through light sources. Senera has The Name of All Things, which can answer any question. Var has Warmonger, though we don’t learn how that Cornerstone works. Each Cornerstone is tied to one of the dragons. And there’s one dragon whose Cornerstone I really want to learn!
