Review: The Shadow Throne by Jennifer A. Neilson

17667561Description (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.


Review -

I think this may be the most content I have ever been with an ending to a favorite book series. I am not overwhelmingly sad that it is over, even though I love it very much, the way I was when Percy Jackson ended. I'm not frustrated the way I was with the end of Hunger Games. I am not angry the way I was with the ending of Pendragon. I am happy and content. I honestly don't think there was one thing I did not like about this book, I'm not saying it was perfect, but it's pretty damn close.

I think Jaron grew a lot in this book, and I came to love him even more. I loved the romance between Jaron and Imogen, it was sweet and innocent, and it didn't take precedence over the whole story but was still kinda in the background and you knew it was there throughout the whole book. The secondary characters are just as important in this book as Jaron is and again my love for them only grew, especially Roden, I loved seeing he become the Jaron's captain and growing into his position, I almost wish he had been in it more though because I love him so much! Same with Fink.

Surprisingly there were a few twists and turns that I did not see coming. This book was very good at misleading the reader without it becoming irritating, it just kept you turning the pages long into the night.

Over all I think this book was the best in the trilogy and everything I wanted it to be. It's fast paced but not so fast that you feel cheated or that it's hard to keep up with the plot. It's lighthearted and funny just like the other two books in the trilogy but you still feel all the sadness Jaron feels about the war and everything, it gets serious when it's time to be serious, you know? It's the perfect ending to a series and everything that you want a final book to be.

If you haven't read this series and you love mid-evil type fantasy then pick this up, now!

Waiting On Wednesday #3

Hosted by Breaking The Spine

Sky Raiders -
18049017by Brandon Mull
Genre - Middle Grade Fantasy
Publication date - March 11

Description(from Goodreads)

Adventure awaits in the Five Kingdoms come and claim it in this start to a new series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series.

Cole Randolph was just trying to have a fun time with his friends on Halloween (and maybe get to know Jenna Hunt a little better). But when a spooky haunted house turns out to be a portal to something much creepier, Cole finds himself on an adventure on a whole different level. 

After Cole sees his friends whisked away to some mysterious place underneath the haunted house, he dives in after them and ends up in The Outskirts. The Outskirts are made up of five kingdoms that lie between wakefulness and dreaming, reality and imagination, life and death. It's an in-between place. Some people are born there. Some find their way there from our world, or from other worlds. 

And once you come to the Outskirts, it's very hard to leave. 

With the magic of the Outskirts starting to unravel, it's up to Cole and an unusual girl named Mira to rescue his friends, set things right in the Outskirts, and hopefully find his way back home before his existence is forgotten.

I have read both the Beyonders and Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull and I must say that while I do think Fablehaven is better than Beyonders, he is one of my all time favorite authors and I can not wait for this book. I actually met him at Comic-Con, two years in a row, and I got a little chapter preview of this book and it looks so awesome. it's pitched as being more for fans of Fablehaven over Beyonders which makes me so happy. The only thing that could be better is if it was a second Fablehaven series instead. If you've never read anything of Brandon Mull's you are seriously missing out and I highly suggest that you rectify the situation.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

Top Ten Tuesdays #4


Rewind week! - This is where you get to pick from all of the old Top Ten Tuesdays and I couldn't decide so I'm doing two, because...that's just how I roll. (Yeah, I went there.)

First -
Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes -
  1. “Take down the walls. That is, after all, the whole point. You do not know what will happen if you take down the walls; you cannot see through to the other side, don't know whether it will bring freedom or ruin, resolution or chaos. It might be paradise or destruction. Take down the walls. Otherwise you must live closely, in fear, building barricades against the unknown, saying prayers against the darkness, speaking verse of terror and tightness. Otherwise you may never know hell; but you will not find heaven, either. You will not know fresh air and flying. All of you, wherever you are: in your spiny cities, or your one bump towns. Find it, the hard stuff, the links of metal and chink, the fragments of stone filling you stomach. And pull, and pull, and pull. I will make a pact with you: I will do it if you will do it, always and forever. Take down the walls." Requiem by Lauren Oliver
  2. "Each Day Means A New twenty-four hours. Each day means everything's possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, You take it all one day at a time. You try to walk in the Light." -Legend by Marie Lu
  3. "If you muster that courage to stand under fire and not go down, you will amass an inner strength that no one can touch. You won’t be another faceless, nameless, forgotten human in a long historical line of the defeated. You will be a steeled warrior, and a force to be forever reckoned with. And beneath the pain that lingers, you will have the comfort of knowing that you are strongest of all. That when others caved and broke, you kept fighting even against hopeless odds.” -Inferno by Sherrilyn Kenyon
  4. "I've been thinking about what we said about heaven, and I think heaven would be a place where you could still somehow remember things that happened when you were alive. I wish I knew for sure, but I can't really imagine a place where I'd exist without remembering us." - Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor
  5. “We’re here, and then we’re gone, and it’s not about the time we’re here, but what we do with the time.” The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
  6. "Sometimes love means not being able to bear seeing the one you love the way they are, when they're not what you hoped for." Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
  7. “Happily ever after, or even just together ever after, is not cheesy,” Wren said. “It’s the noblest, like, the most courageous thing two people can shoot for.” - Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
  8. “I wanted to tell them that I'd never had a friend, not ever, not a real one. Until Dante. I wanted to tell them that I never knew that people like Dante existed in the world, people who looked at the stars, and knew the mysteries of water, and knew enough to know that birds belonged to the heavens and weren't meant to be shot down from their graceful flights by mean and stupid boys. I wanted to tell them that he had changed my life and that I would never be the same, not ever. And that somehow it felt like it was Dante who had saved my life and not the other way around. I wanted to tell them that he was the first human being aside from my mother who had ever made me want to talk about the things that scared me. I wanted to tell them so many things and yet I didn't have the words. So I just stupidly repeated myself. "Dante's my friend." - Aristotle & Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe
  9. "I admire a person who devotes his life to justice, who can live off the land, and who still looks hot after sleeping in the forest. That's real talent." - Just One Wish by Janette Rallison
  10. “You have to fall in love to be in love, but falling in love isn't the same as being in love”  - Just One Day by Gayle Forman
                Two -

                Ragnarok

                I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not, but today is Ragnarok, the day in Norse mythology that the world is supposed to end. I think this is awesome, because if the world is going to end I think this is a pretty badass way for it to happen.

                In Norse mythologyRagnarök is a series of future events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods OdinThorTýrFreyrHeimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and returning gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors. Ragnarök is an important event in the Norse canon, and has been the subject of scholarly discourse and theory.

                The event is attested primarily in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In the Prose Edda, and a single poem in the Poetic Edda, the event is referred to as Ragnarök or Ragnarøkkr (Old Norse "Fate of the Gods" and "Twilight of the Gods" respectively), a usage popularized by 19th-century composer Richard Wagner with the title of the last of his Der Ring des Nibelungen operas, Götterdämmerung (1876). - Wikipedia

                Come on admit it, this is really interesting stuff. Personally I love all the mythologies, Greek, Egyptian, Roman, Celtic, Norse, and I've always loved books and movies and everything that mention Ragnarok it's so interesting. I mean if the world had to end what would you prefer? That we're all brought before our "maker" and judged or a fiery blaze of Viking mythology awesomeness?
                P.S. I mean no offense to anyone with that last comment and I am sincerely sorry if it does offend you.

                How are you celebrating Ragnarok? Watching Thor? Reading Loki's Wolves? Doing something equally awesome? What about a Ragnarok themed party? All you party animals do your research!

                Song Of The Moment - Guardians Of Asgaard by Amon Amarth - By they way this band is awesome and their songs are all about Norse mythology.

                Fangirls Anonymous - Fangirling Over - New Percy Jackson Covers!

                I don't know if you know this but the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan are my absolute favorite books in the world, one of my favorite things in the whole world and I just love them. They were the books that got me into reading, you might even say they were my first love, and they just recently announced new covers for them! What? I hate it when they do that because either they suck and depress me or their awesome and I get the uncontrollable urge to buy them! Thankfully these are awesome, so I just thought that I would share them with you real quick and we can fangirl together.

                 

                 


                Personally I think that the coolest part is that they all connect together! I love when books do that.

                What book was your first love?

                Review: Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor

                18053047Description (From Goodreads) -

                Zoe and her best friend, Olivia, have always had big plans for the future, none of which included Olivia getting sick. Still, Zoe is determined to put on a brave face and be positive for her friend.

                Even when she isn't sure what to say.

                Even when Olivia misses months of school.

                Even when Zoe starts falling for Calvin, Olivia's crush.

                The one thing that keeps Zoe moving forward is knowing that Olivia will beat this, and everything will go back to the way it was before. It has to. Because the alternative is too terrifying for her to even imagine.






                Review - I don't know what to say about this book except that it is beautifully tragic and amazingly well written. It's definitely sad and tragic but at the same time hopeful and beautiful. I loved the characters of Olvia and Zoe, though I did like Oilivia more even though Zoe was kind of the main character. Their friendship is the soul mate kind, not that their IN LOVE but just they were made to be each others best friend and have been forever. This book is all about this friendship and it's ups and down as they face the truth that one of them may die. It's about Zoe trying to be there for her friend even when she herself feels hopeless or when things are looking bad, and Olivia wants to talk about death while Zoe wants to run and hide from it. It's about Zoe learning that there are people outside of the two of them that care about them, about her struggling to be a part of Olivias' family though she always was. About trying to stay together and be there for your friend when you want to fall apart, because they're more important to you than anything else. But also about Zoe learning to live for the both of them.
                  I loved the dance classes and the history of them(Olivia and Zoe) dancing that kinda back dropped the whole thing. Although I felt that Zoe was kinda selfish at some points I did enjoy seeing her grow especially when it came to the dance classes and her realizing that it was okay to just dance for fun even though she might not become a professional and that it was okay for her to live even if Olivia might not. I actually wish that Olivia had been in the book a little more, she was in it a lot and I get that more than anything this book was not only about Olivia and Zoe but about Zoe without Olivia. But while we did get to know her character well I wanted more of them together, more moments like Zoe's birthday and the day when they shaved Olivia's hair off.
                  Secondary character wise I really loved Jake, Olivia's brother, and I liked how Zoe and him seemed to lean on each other at some points and the scene at the party when they get drunk together was one of my favorites but again I wish we had gotten to see more of him, to really see how everything was affecting him and all that. Calvin was a good character I guess, but I didn't feel like the reader got to know him at all, like she hates him and you figure out that he's probably in love with her and she him, and then they make out and then the don't speak for like a month and she hates him, then she thinks she might like him, then she does like him and gets together with him once Olivia says it's okay and then she breaks up with him when Olivia starts to get worse and his kisses don't make her forget everything else anymore and then they're together? I think, I don't know. The whole thing seemed to me that it was just a distraction from Olivia's illness not that Zoe actually had real feelings for him, while you could tell that he actually did like her. But like the whole time their "together" it's just Zoe saying how when he kissed her for a minute she can forget about Olivia, and that's all, so to me it felt like more of a distraction than a real relationship.
                  The book really was good though and the thing that mattered most, the friendship between Olivia and Zoe, was the best parts of the book, you really get to know them and see why their best friends and there are some really sad moments between them, really beautiful moments that make up for anything that could be wrong in this book. I feel that it is really realistic too, because I imagine that if someone I knew, someone I loved, was sick like Olivia I would have the same reaction as Zoe, where all of her thoughts and actions revolve around Olivia, where everything she does comes back to Olivia, I thought their relationship before and during Olivia's illness was all very realistic. 
                  Overall I really did love this book but I thought that all of the secondary characters were understated and that the book would have profited from it.
                  I would recommend this to anyone who love YA contemporary and like books that will make you cry and of course if you loved Fault In Our Stars.

                Cover Lust Thursday - #1

                I am going to start doing this every Thursday featuring a book that I have major cover lust for, usually a book that is coming out soon or that the cover just recently got revealed for, but sometimes I might do older ones that I love or ones for books I just recently bought, who knows maybe sometimes I shall do all three!

                I love all three covers in this trilogy, but this one is by far the best in my opinion, I love the red and I love how it's still the same basic cover as the others. I just love these covers, in case you didn't get that. =)













                The other two covers -

                13618440
                by Laini Taylor
                Publication date - April 8th

                Description (from Goodreads) -
                By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can even be a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz.

                Common enemy, common cause.

                When Jael's brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people.

                And, perhaps, for themselves. Toward a new way of living, and maybe even love.

                But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva, and, in the skies of Eretz ... something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world.

                What power can bruise the sky?

                From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy. 

                At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?


                This is the third and final book in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, and I need it bad! I love these books, even though there are a few things I despise, mainly Akiva, but despite that I find my love for these books only grows the farther away from them I am. If you haven't read the first one Daughter of Smoke and Bone or you did but skipped reading Days Of Blood and Starlight, you are missing out! Read them now! Do it! Do. It.

                What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

                Reading Slumps - 2014 edition

                There are multiple kinds of reading slumps, there is the kind where you've just finished a book that you were completely in love with and have not gotten over it yet and you can not bring yourself to read another book yet. Then there is the kind where you just don't feel like reading period. Lastly(that I can think of at the moment), there is the one where you just can't get into a book, you want to read but every book you pick up you end up dropping twenty minutes later, this is the kind of slump I am in at the moment. I hate it because your tempted to just keep trying different books until you find one you can really get into and so you wind up reading the first twenty or so pages of a dozen books and then when you finally do get out the reading slump you don't want to pick those books up again for fear of bringing it back and it's really not fair to those books, you know?
                I am determined to be out of my reading slump, that has now lasted about two weeks, before the 25th because there are books coming out that I need to read right away and I don't want this slump to affect how I feel about those books.
                How do you get out of a reading slump? What's the last book that gave you such a bad hangover that you didn't pick up another book for like a week?

                Writing Update - Feb - 2014 -Part 2

                Key(as in map key) -
                Dragon Heir - The book from the summer I wrote a book posts
                War Of Queens - My NaNoWriMo 2013 project

                -This post is all about Dragon Heir

                Okay, so, I sent my book to a couple close friends after finishing another read though, and I'm taking it as a good sign that I'm not super nervous about them reading it, I'm not all that nervous at all. I believe in my book, I mean I also believe that it's not perfect, but I really think that the most important thing is to believe in it because if you don't then how do you except an agent or publisher or reader to believe in it. So yeah this is a good thing, right?

                I'm constantly astonished at the fact that I can be stuck on something for days and than in a mater of minutes I can come up with one seemingly small thing and write off of that for hours, does this ever happen to you?

                Writing Advise -

                I know I've said this before but, when you get stuck don't push it. Don't sit at your desk for hours trying to figure it out or to write things when you're not feeling it, it will get you no where. No laying awake at night agonizing over it, maybe consider it thoughtfully before bed but don't spend hours repeatedly telling yourself that you need to figure this out right now! Take a break and let it come naturally. That's my repetitive advise for this month, your welcome.

                Valentines Day- Celebrating the fictional boyfriends and girlfriends of the world.

                So, maybe you're boycotting valentines day seeing as how it's a totally made up holiday that doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, and really we should be having a second Halloween today. Or, maybe you prefer to celebrate valentines day with your favorite book, whether it is swoon worthy or blood drenched. Maybe you prefer to spend it watching your favorite TV show or a bunch of romantic comedy movies by yourself or with your best friends, maybe you prefer to watch blood drenched horror movies, I don't know, who am I to judge? Maybe it's worse case scenario and the boy (or girl) you wish to be spending the day with is off with somebody else, let's call her (or him) your arch nemesis. Either way you're better off doing whatever it is your doing right now and don't you forget it!

                Now the question is, if you could pick one person in all the worlds, literature, movie, television, real life movie stars, whatever, to spend the day with who would it be?

                Let's start with books, of course! Here are, in my opinion, the top ten book boyfriends and girlfriends (though I admit one of these categorizes was harder for me to do than the other as I don't swing that way, if you know what I mean.)

                Waiting On Wednesday #1

                Hosted by Breaking The Spine

                This is my 1st waiting on Wednesday but basically you showcase a book that you CAN NOT wait to have in your hands, you need it so bad you feel like you could die from excitement.

                17667561The Shadow Throne -
                by Jennifer A. Nielsen 
                Publication Date - Feb 25th 2014

                Description (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 withThe Shadow Throne.


                This is the third and final book in the Ascendance Trilogy and I have loved this trilogy since the first page of the first book which I read the first day it was out. It is my favorite type of book, Fantasy, and it's fun and easy to read and still has an awesome plot and great characters, there literally is not one thing I do not like about these books and even though it comes out in like two weeks I can not wait that long for it! I think it is slightly underrated as I haven't seen a ton of people who know about it, so you should definitely check them out, book one is The False Prince, book 2- The Runaway King, so go on check them out and then join me in the torturous wait for the next two weeks. =)

                What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

                Fangirls Anonymous

                Allgeiant Spoiler Catastrophe (Spoiler Free)

                Dear person who spoiled allegiant for me, you suck.

                So, recently the blog Epic Reads hosted what they called the Book Shimmy awards, an awards show dedicated to YA books, a week or so ago they posted a link to Facebook to show all the winning books, I clicked in the comments, innocently wanting to know if anyone else thought that Fangirl and Rainbow Rowell deserved too win more awards and there it was....third comment down. Someone saying how Tris from Allegiant shouldn't have this award because (insert biggest spoiler ever here), What. The. Fudge!? Seriously, unnamed person what we're you thinking? Oh, it's been months since that book came out everyone must have read it by now? Wrong! I have not read it, you buttface!
                I have been so careful, I unliked and unfollowed Veronica Roth and Divergent on Facebook and Twitter, I have not checked Goodreads and have avoided all blog posts and Facebook and Twitter posts that mention it, and then you do this!? Forget me, what if someone who hasn't even read the first book sees that, then they'll probably never want to read the series, it was THAT big of a Spoiler!
                Now had it been a review for the book or a post specifically about the book then it would be my own stupid fault, but it wasn't and its not! You unnecessarily posted that! I get that whoever you are you didn't purposely do it to ruin the book for people, all I am saying is, as a fellow book lover, you must be careful and considerate!
                You could have said a million different things, like I can't believe Tris won after what happened in the lasrt book it was ridiculously stupid, or just horrible the book ending, or "Tris sucks, if you've read Allegiant you know what I mean", a million things you could have posted to get your point across without spoiling anything. Or shit, you could have simply wrote spoiler alert and warned me not to scroll down if I haven't finished the book yet, anything, but what you did.
                Again I understand that this person did not intentionally spoil the book for me or anyone else who saw it, I'm just saying you should be considerate and not spoil one of the biggest books out right now on a post that is not specifically about said book, m'kay?

                What books have been spoiled for that you are still harbouring a secret grudge over?

                Writing Update - Feb - 2014

                Key(as in map key) -
                Dragon Heir - The book from the summer I wrote a book posts
                War Of Queens - My NaNoWriMo 2013 project

                I have officially finished my first round of revisions for Dragon Heir, YAY!!!!!!! Next up is War of Queens, I am currently reading through it and working on some revisions even though I have not actually written the end to it, but I knew their were some big things that needed to be changed and fixed and so I decided to read through and fix a bunch of it before writing the end as I don't know exactly how I am going to end it yet.
                So, the next part will be a second round of revisions for Dragon Heir and then I am going to let a few people outside my immediate family read it and then probably another round of revisions and if all goes according to plan I might start querying agents by the end of April, but at the same time I don't want to rush it because while I know realistically that no book is perfect before it gets bought by a publisher and everything I want it as close to my version of prefect as possible before sending it out to agents.
                As always I will keep you updated whether you want or not. =)

                February Update - Strange Things Are Happening


                • First of all you can look forward to more posts about more things this month, probably.
                • Also, more nonsense, definitely.
                • Of course I never fail to disappoint at disappointing, so there's that to look forward to.
                • In other more serious news, I was going to launch another new blog called Fangirls Anonymous, but I have decided just to simply incorporate everything that that was going to be into this blog, partly because I am lazy but mainly because I honestly don't think I can handle two blogs again, and I think that if I tried I would wind up posting on one way more often than the other and inevitably dropping one of them, and I don't want that to happen. So there will be a new, let's call it segment, called Fangirls Anonymous where in I shall Fangirl over all the things and you can join in, sound good? I don't know all the details yet, but it will be happening this month.
                • Also, I have started joining in on Top Ten Tuesday as hosted by The Broke and The Bookish  and will be doing it every week, for the most part.
                • I will update the quotes page really soon because I have been seriously behind on that, so it shall happen.
                • Also, look forward to more reviews brought to you by Fangirls Anonymous(which if you're paying attention is still me), and some other things.
