The Shadow Throne by Jennifer A. Nielsen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jaron believes he has put another’s life before his own when he left Imogen behind to return as king of Carthya. After he learns that she has been kidnapped in order to force his hand, he begins a mission to rescue her, but everything goes wrong. He is still injured from his last foray into foreign territory and now he has to battle and outwit several enemies. Can he save his country? Must he sacrifice himself in order to achieve his goals?
The Shadow Throne is the third and final book in the Ascendance Trilogy. Readers who were pulled into the story of Jaron with the False Prince will not be disappointed in the conclusion of this series. The battles are fierce and the intrigue is ever present, yet readers will be anticipating the ending until the last chapter. Nielsen uses every page to pull the reader to the conclusion and readers need to be prepared to stay up late or miss an appointment if they reach the end without enough time to finish. With that said, readers must be reminded that this is a series and if the first two books have not been read, STOP, go back, and get them first. Otherwise, little nuances will be missed by reading the last book alone.
