Annapurna Television has optioned the rights to Jenn Lyons’ The Ruin Of Kings, the installment in the five-book series A Chorus of Dragons, for advancement as an epic fantasy TV series.
The Ruin of Kings pursues the narrative of Khirin, a youthful thief who finds he might be the child of a prince and associated with a complex prophecy where he is more profitable alive than dead.
The book, released on February 5 by Tor Books, has been getting positive early surveys, including from Kirkus Reviews, who stated, “In a sprawling, magic-filled world populated by gods, dragons, krakens, witches, demons, ghosts, shape-shifters, zombies, and so much more, Lyons ties it all together seamlessly to create literary magic.”
Lyons was a graphic artist and illustrator for twenty years and has worked in video games for over 10 years. She previously worked on The Saboteur and Lord of the Rings: Conquest at EA Games.
The deal was brokered by Richie Kern for the behalf of Sam Morgan of Foundry Literary + Media and Linda Lichter of LGNA.
