The Shadow Throne

War has come to Carthya. It knocks at every door and window in the land. And when Jaron learns that King Vargan of Avenia has kidnapped Imogen in a plot to bring Carthya to its knees, Jaron knows it is up to him to embark on a daring rescue mission. But everything that can go wrong does.

His friends are flung far and wide across Carthya and its neighboring lands. In a last-ditch effort to stave off what looks to be a devastating loss for the kingdom, Jaron undertakes what may be his last journey to save everything and everyone he loves. But even with his lightning-quick wit, Jaron cannot forestall the terrible danger that descends on him and his country. Along the way, will he lose what matters most? And in the end, who will sit on Carthya’s throne?


The Shadow Throne is the last book in the Ascendance Trilogy. Jennifer Nielsen is an excellent author. She writes her books for all ages. I had my younger sisters and my mom read this series. They all liked it and were sad when they read the last book because the series ended. This book starts where The Runaway King ends and brings more exciting twists into the story. The plot and characters were written very well. When I first read this book, I could not put it down. And to be honest, I have read this book more than once.

Nielsen did a wonderful job ending each character’s story. I do not want to give away the end, but I can say that I enjoyed every part of this book as well as the rest of the series.

This is one series I highly recommend that you read. I actually own two copies of the first book, so I can loan one out.
