The Shadow Throne by Jennifer A. Nielsen

The Shadow Throne by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Summary from Goodreads:
One war.
Too many deadly battles.
Can a king save his kingdom, when his own survival seems unlikely?

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 neighbouring 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?

Rousing and affecting, Jaron's adventures have thrilled and moved readers in The False Prince and The Runaway King. Journey once again with the Ascendant King of Carthya, as New York Times bestselling author Jennifer A. Nielsen brings his story to a stunning conclusion with The Shadow Throne.

My Review:
What a fantastic end to this fun trilogy!  If you enjoyed the other 2 books then you won't be disappointed with this one.  The story continues with the same feel as the other books.  Jaron is snarky, brave, makes mistakes, and fools you with what he is doing.  The secondary characters continue to develop and I enjoyed seeing them grow in their own ways, especially Roden.

This is a satisfying conclusion.  

Warnings: None

I would let my 16 year old read this book.  In fact, my 13 year old read the book before me and she loved it.
