Jennifer A. Nielsen takes readers on an extraordinary journey in this final installment of the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Ascendance Trilogy.

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 best

This used to be my second favorite series. Now it's my first. Everything about this book was outstanding. The last chapter was just what this series needed for an ending. Actually it's better which makes the book better. 10/10

Really good series

At some points, I asked myself if the author would be this mean to the characters, but it turned out fine at the end. I absolutely loved the fact that the last chapter only wraps the story to prevent any questions about the future for them. I would definitely share this series with my friends.

The Shadow Throne

This is an amazing series geared for all ages with fun, adventure, and a little romance. I'm a gramma of 17 and now wish I had purchased the actual books instead of the iBook so could send it to them to share. Looking forward to Nielsen's other works.
