Waiting on Wednesday

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles of books we are eagerly anticipating.

The Runaway King (Ascendance Trilogy; bk. 2) by Jennifer A. Nielsen. 352 p. Scholastic, Inc. March 1, 2013. 9780545284158.

Publisher synopsis: 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! 


  1. I haven't even read The False Prince yet even though it's soooo high on my wishlist! Great Pick :)

    My WOW this week

    1. Well, you have almost 3 months to squeeze it in. I only recently read it, with my ears, which I highly recommend. The narrator did a spectacular job. The nice thing about not reading a book in a series right when it releases is the shorter wait time for the sequel Haha!

      Thanks for stopping by. Antigoddess sounds intriguing. Going to comment on your WoW now.


  2. I've heard great things about this series! I really want to check it out sometime because I love fantasy.
