This is book number 5 in the A Chorus of Dragons series.
The epic conclusion to my favorite fantasy series of the last 5 years! Relos Var's plan to "save the world" has finally been put into motion. The dragons are restless, the gods are gone, and Kihrin and his friends only have a couple of days to stop a 14,000 year old wizard from sacrificing billions of lives and turning himself into the god of everything. Wrapping up plot threads first introduced in The Ruin of Kings, Jenn Lyons deftly pulls all our heroes together to do the impossible and truly save the world.

The Discord of Gods marks the epic conclusion to Jenn Lyons's Chorus of Dragons series, closing out the saga that began with The Ruin of Kings, for fans of Brandon Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss.
THEIR CONFLICT COULD END THEM ALL.
Relos Var's final plans to enslave the universe are on the cusp of fruition. He believes there's only one being in existence that might be able to stop him: the demon Xaltorath.
As these two masterminds circle each other, neither is paying attention to the third player on the board, Kihrin. Unfortunately, keeping himself classified in the 'pawn' category means Kihrin must pretend to be everything the prophecies threatened he'd become: the destroyer of all, the sun eater, a mindless, remorseless plague upon the land. It also means finding an excuse to not destroy the people he loves (or any of the remaining Immortals) without arousing suspicion.
Kihrin's goals are complicated by the fact that not all of his 'act' is one. His intentions may be sincere, but he's still being forced to grapple with the aftereffects of the corrupted magic ritual that twisted both him and the dragons. Worse, he's now tied to a body that is the literal avatar of a star — a form that is becoming increasingly, catastrophically unstable. All of which means he's running out of time.
After all, some stars fade — but others explode.
