“Jaron is off and running again in the second volume of The Ascendance Trilogy, this time not as a false prince but as the newly anointed King of Carthya. And he's running for his life! With few friends and plenty of people, including pirates, who would rather see him dead, Jaron decides to run straight toward the trouble that lays in wait for him. Who can he trust? Who will become his ally? Nielsen once again keeps up a breakneck pace in this very satisfying fantasy.”
— Anne Holman, The King's English, Salt Lake City, UT
