The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen

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!

The Runaway King is one of the best sequels that I have ever read. The main character is complicated enough to be interesting and the plot line continually keeps you guessing. I would recommend this book to people who enjoyed The False Prince and are in grades 5-9 who love adventure stories. But beware. Once you pick this book up, it’s awfully hard to put back down. Oh, and be prepared for a cliff hanger at the end. One. nasty. cliffhanger.

This book hits shelves March of 2013!

Happy reading!
