A kingdom teetering on the brink of destruction. A king gone missing. Who will survive? Find out in the highly anticipated sequel to Jennifer A. Nielsen's blockbuster THE FALSE PRINCE!

Just weeks after Jaron has taken the throne, an assassination attempt forces him into a deadly situation. Rumors of a coming war are winding their way between the castle walls, and Jaron feels the pressure quietly mounting within Carthya. Soon, it becomes clear that deserting the kingdom may be his only hope of saving it. But the further Jaron is forced to run from his identity, the more he wonders if it is possible to go too far. Will he ever be able to return home again? Or will he have to sacrifice his own life in order to save his kingdom?

The stunning second installment of The Ascendance Trilogy takes readers on a roller-coaster ride of treason and murder, thrills and peril, as they journey with the Runaway King!

Jennifer Nielsen's first book, THE FALSE PRINCE, debuted to huge accolades. It is a finalist in the Whitney Awards (Middle Grade category) and won first place in the Cybils competition (Science Fiction & Fantasy category). Nielsen is a force to be reckoned with in the children's fantasy book world. (Read my interview with Jennifer Nielsen HERE.) If you haven't read it yet, you should definitely put in on your TBR list.


  1. Okay here's mine: I would have never picked it up if I'd known what it was.

    I'd LOVE to win this!

  2. "It was the first night of Spring Break, and there I sat in an overcrowded ER, surrounded by lung-hackers, moaners, and bleeders, with three broken fingers courtesy of Michael Brutski's deceptively meaty jaw."

  3. She stared in horror at the mess in front of her unable to believe her klutziness.

  4. I hated that girl from the moment we met, even if she didn't know it.

  5. "Once upon a time" might have been fitting - if this wasn't the billionth time she was walking down this street, going to do the same thing she did every Tuesday.

  6. Wide awake, she lay in bed pondering the upcoming day's events. Why did she care so much for her students? Was it really worth the dedication and commitment?
