The Shadow Throne Review

336 pages
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?

The Ascendance Trilogy has been amazing from start to finish. Jaron is the type of hero who isn't perfect but does what he thinks is right with an exceptional level of cunning. Jaron doesn't disappoint in this final novel in the trilogy. As usual Jaron takes us on a journey where we don't really know all of his plans and are left to be delighted by his intelligence in foreseeing how to save his country and Imogen. While Imogen and Jaron haven't had the easiest relationship, he will still do anything to save her. The plot twists are probably my favorite thing about this series, you think the story is going in one direction then it just drops a bomb on you out of nowhere. There is plenty of action and adventure in this novel and it takes us on quite an exciting ride coming to the conclusion. I definitely recommend that you read this novel if you like adventure stories but make sure to check out The False Prince and The Runaway King first.

Movie Monday: Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars was a show that I absolutely loved. I truly wish there were more seasons, so I am glad that they have rebooted this show into a movie! This movie is basically about a high school reunion Veronica comes back in town for although she's also back to solve another mystery. All of her friends and some enemies are back to help her like in the good old days. If you've never seen Veronica Mars go watch all of the seasons before this movie is released on Friday! Go now!

Movie Monday: 300 Rise of an Empire

More than likely everyone reading this post has seen 300. While an excellent movie, it did have a pretty sad ending. This sequel, titled 300: Rise of an Empire, continues the battle and shows the full force of Greek soldiers pitted against the Persian army. This movie looks action-filled so I'm excited to check it out. It comes out this week, March 7th, so if you haven't seen the original 300 make sure to check that out first!
