First, I loved this book, but this is a review, and we have to be honest I did not love it is much as the Silent Shield, though Jeff Wheeler s artistry was no less on display I loved it less because I had read all of Jeff s other books first, including Muirwood, Mirrowen, and Landmoor Silverkin End result, I needed less of the exposition present in this book needed for newer readers to tie the threads together from his past works Thankfully, there wasn t much of that, and it was largely late First, I loved this book, but this is a review, and we have to be honest I did not love it is much as the Silent Shield, though Jeff Wheeler s artistry was no less on display I loved it less because I had read all of Jeff s other books first, including Muirwood, Mirrowen, and Landmoor Silverkin End result, I needed less of the exposition present in this book needed for newer readers to tie the threads together from his past works Thankfully, there wasn t much of that, and it was largely later in the book 80% in or so Ultimately, there was less here to surprise me, though I can think of no way in which he could have continued to drop the bread crumbs for fans like me without some exposition for those unfamiliar with his other works before wrapping this one up.The chief antagonist of this book, whom I ve delighted in the last two books, was largely off screen for events in this one Her actions and motivations were revealed in brief passages at the beginning of various chapters By necessity, as the point of view had moved on from her, they lacked the subtelty that I so appreciated in her character previously Over the course of the works, her transformation has been believable, her goals understandable, and her emotional response plausible It simply led her to a place where her plans reliedon power, and less on the delicious cunning I previously appreciated in her.Taking all of those quibbles as a whole, this book held fewer surprises for me and less to ponder in the days and months ahead I do still strongly recommend the book, and continue to suggest you read all of Jeff s other books previously but for reasons above, this is Four and a Half Stars for me, though likely Five Stars for most.I suppose I should also note that I did not recieve an advance copy, am not paid for my reviews, etc I logged into myaccount this morning, shortly thereafter began downloading the book to my Kindle, and sat down in a comfortable chair to enjoy the reading of it It s over Color me nonplussedThere absolutely are dangling threads, and reversals events that feel very abrupt, bookended with tedious description I daccurately give 3 1 2 stars, but of course cannot Must read if you re a fan, but there are disappointments, some of which for me were baffling I mean, I understood them, but felt Wheeler was betraying his own story SEMI SPOILER One plot line has a complete deus ex machina evenblatant than the eagles in LOTR We saw where it was It s over Color me nonplussedThere absolutely are dangling threads, and reversals events that feel very abrupt, bookended with tedious description I daccurately give 3 1 2 stars, but of course cannot Must read if you re a fan, but there are disappointments, some of which for me were baffling I mean, I understood them, but felt Wheeler was betraying his own story SEMI SPOILER One plot line has a complete deus ex machina evenblatant than the eagles in LOTR We saw where it was going all along, but it was done so clumsily I ve come to expect his characters to receive better treatment I m beginning to feel, Mr Wheeler, that you just have a hard time wrapping up your novels This is not the first time I ve enjoyed one trending at a stately pace, only to feel rushed through its final chapters It s robbery, Sir, especially in the conclusion of a series This was one of the greatest binge read series ever I loved the characters, the development, the pace, the world building SO GOOD. Was a fun series I thought we had some loose ends to our story, so perhaps there isto come. The Forsaken Throne is the conclusion book to Wheeler s 6 book Kingfountain series his best so far in my opinion Right out of the gate there are surprising twists and gut wrenching choices for the main character, Trynneowy Kiskaddon The pace never let up Even trying to keep myself from ripping through the story, I finished reading it at three in the morning, bleary eyed but completely satisfied.Sometimes, when you get to a grand finale like this one, the battle is nowhere near epic enough The Forsaken Throne is the conclusion book to Wheeler s 6 book Kingfountain series his best so far in my opinion Right out of the gate there are surprising twists and gut wrenching choices for the main character, Trynneowy Kiskaddon The pace never let up Even trying to keep myself from ripping through the story, I finished reading it at three in the morning, bleary eyed but completely satisfied.Sometimes, when you get to a grand finale like this one, the battle is nowhere near epic enough The danger can t be ratcheted any higher, and the outcome is almost an afterthought The Forsaken Throne is the complete opposite Once you think it can t get any worse, it does, and when you think it can t possibly resolve, it does that too Not easily, mind you, but in the most epic, explosive, exhausting way possible When I was done I felt like I d fought a battle It was amazing.If you ve read any of the other series written by this author, there are bits and pieces in this book that will absolutely delight you That s all I ll say on that And the ending well I hate spoilers so I refuse to give it away, but I ll say this If you have been searching for an author who delivers on endings, Wheeler is your man No one gets left out, nothing gets left undone There were some things that still managed to surprise me, even this far in, and others that were like that sweet sip of hot cocoa on a winter night satisfying, stunning and just right.Now I m going to go back and start all over again at book one This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I greatly enjoyed the King Fountain series and recommend it over all I am a little disappointed in some of the choices in this final installment Having the bulk of the adventure take place in Muirwood vs King Fountain fell flat for me, especially since I have read the Muirwood series and did not particularly care for it Converging all of the worlds within the author s universe in this story is an intriguing concept, but for me ended up being both under and over explained somehow Morwenna s f I greatly enjoyed the King Fountain series and recommend it over all I am a little disappointed in some of the choices in this final installment Having the bulk of the adventure take place in Muirwood vs King Fountain fell flat for me, especially since I have read the Muirwood series and did not particularly care for it Converging all of the worlds within the author s universe in this story is an intriguing concept, but for me ended up being both under and over explained somehow Morwenna s fate deserved a bigger spotlight than being quickly explained after the fact My final gripe is Ghalantine s death so Trynne and Fallon could be together while still remaining faithful G deserved a better andsatisfying ending I hope Mr Wheeler keeps writing the series because it just keeps getting better better Loved it I hope Mr Wheeler keeps writing the series because it just keeps getting better better Loved it
