Now that Relos Var's plans have been revealed and demons are free to rampage across the empire, the fulfillment of the ancient prophecies--and the end of the world--is closer than ever.

To buy time for humanity, Kihrin needs to convince the king of the Manol vané to perform an ancient ritual which will strip the entire race of their immortality, but it's a ritual which certain vané will do anything to prevent. Including assassinating the messengers.

Worse, Kihrin must come to terms with the horrifying possibility that his connection to the king of demons, Vol Karoth, is growing steadily in strength.

How can he hope to save anyone when he might turn out to be the greatest threat of them all?


The Memory of Souls was another enjoyable instalment in the A Chorus of Dragons series. This time we had even more narrators than ever before, but getting Kihrin's voice back made up for his absence in book two. I had no issue following the various narrative arcs and there was plenty of action taking place in all of them to hold my interest, with magic, dragons and confrontations. Although this book is long, it never felt like a slog, and I managed to wrap it up in six days. I am looking forward to making a start of The House of Always shortly. It gets 4.5 stars from me.

I received this book as a free review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
