The Forsaken Throne (Kingfountain #6) by Jeff Wheeler

The Forsaken Throne (Kingfountain #6)

A devastating disaster has left the Forbidden Court in ashes, its fountains destroyed, and its magic at risk. It was destined as the site of Trynne Kiskaddon’s coronation as empress. Now, all Trynne can imagine is the roar of flames, the cries of Gahalatine’s people, and the smell of cinders in a city gone dark. Tragic as the threat to Kingfountain is, it’s nowhere near as foul as the treachery posed by Morwenna. Saboteur, conspirator, and ...

    Releases tomorrow: November 14, 2017!!I actually read this a couple weeks ago and never posted the review because I’ve been so busy with work. I’ve read all six of Wheeler’s Kingfountain books this year and honestly, not a single one disappointed. I’m not sure if this is the last intended Kingfountain book, but I really hope it’s not!This is the conclusion to Trynne’s story and it was full of highs and lows. Nothing is ever as it seem...

    A bit disappointed. I read the entire thing in one sitting because I was so excited to see what would happen to my favorite, Trynne. A couple things ...didn't love how the love story panned out. I was really looking forward to getting to know Gahalatine's character more- and how Trynne and he would adjust to married life. This seemed like an easy out. I also didn't really enjoy all the references to all of Wheeler's other series. I read part of t...

    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, ...

    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 final...

    This was one of the greatest binge read series ever. I loved the characters, the development, the pace, the world building - SO GOOD.

    It's over? Color me nonplussedThere absolutely are dangling threads, and reversals & events that feel very abrupt, bookended with tedious description. I'd more accurately 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 even more bla...

    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...

    I won this book in a goodreads giveaway on my Kindle. Ok so this review will be partially about the book and my thoughts on the series as a whole so bear with me. Overall the series was good but I liked the first half better than the second. I felt like the relationships felt more real and close in the first half between Evie and Owen than they did between Trynne and Fallon. My heart broke when Evie and Owen didn't end up together and when we sor...

    This conclusion to The Kingfountain series is at once satisfying and poignant. Trynne faces impossible odds as she searches for her father, attempts to win back her husband's good will and strives to meet all her promises. To say more is to risk spoiling it for readers. I will say that I wish one item had been resolved which wasn't, at least not clearly. Does Trynne recover the use of her damaged facial muscles? All in all, Wheeler has constructe...

    Well if you use a kindle like I do beware that trying to write a review with it often does not work. FWI.This last book in the King Fountain series was a delight, having the ability to listen to Audible at the same time was awesome. I will just say that Jeff Wheeler ranks with Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson for awesome fantasy writers.

    What a fantastic conclusion to the Kingfountain series! This book was so heartbreaking at times! The ending was shocking and fulfilling, and there were such beautiful family moments in this book. It was absolutely thrilling.

    No spoilers.A fine ending to a solid series. Here our heros, and heavies mostly get what they deserve. all is buttoned up quite well. An easy read but great over all world building and magic system.

    I really couldn’t get into the book for at least quite some time. And again, I just couldn’t connect with any of the characters.I didn’t like any character apart from Trynne. And that I really did not care about any of them. They weren’t particularly very interesting at all, and they just lacked spark with me.But the world was indeed interesting, and I was rather intrigued with it. Since it appeared to be like plenty of epic fantasies but...

    A great ending to the series! I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the books, but there is nothing like a good ending to make you feel fully satisfied.Trynne faces a long journey in a distant land to find her missing father, Owen. Luckily, she has good company - her best friend, Fallon. Tricky though, since she is in love with him and basically married to another man. As an Oath Maiden, she cannot betray her vows and follow her heart with regard to h...

    i am compulsive when it comes to finishing a series, and thus book 6 The Forsaken Throne. The series should have stopped at Book 5 where the intrepid and creative Trynne like her famous father Owen, agreed a deal of state to save her king and country. Now to Book 6 - what a mismash of action and hurriedly drawn characters who have no resonance. Trynne remains unabashedly honest and true - an admirable heroine from all perspectives. No other chara...

    Im so happy I noticed all the little references.Im so happy almost all my theories were correct. I cant wait for the prequel.Okay so...This is a really good book, and it really wraps everything up nicely. I loved the book, and gobbled it all up. Im sad that soon I the Kingfountain series will end. Only one more book and it is all finished. No more stories. I dont want to leave these characters, I loved the flaws, and how fleshed out they were. Iv...

    “One cannot destroy evil, little sister. It can only be bound for a season. It plants its seeds the moment we stop fighting against it.”(from The Forsaken Throne) The Forsaken Throne is the thrilling conclusion to Jeff Wheeler’s sixth (and final?) book in the Kingfountain series.After a raging fire has reduced the Forbidden Court to ashes – what was supposed to be the side of Tryneowy “Trynne” Kiskaddon’s coronation as empress – t...

    Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader. The Forsaken Throne is the 6th (final?) book in Jeff Wheeler's Kingfountain series. The series is an epic multi-book fantasy with some crossworld tie-ins from the author's other series. There are several interconnected storylines, most of which are tied up in this, possibly final, installment.I enjoyed reading this one a lot and seeing how the storyline would unfold and resolve, though, as other r...

    Holy book hangover! I just finished “The Forsaken Throne” and Wheeler has thoroughly thrashed my emotions taking me on a cycle of anticipation, dread, despair, and then hope. I’m not ashamed to admit there was an “ugly cry” in one of the especially despairing moments. Sooo many feelings toward the end….I felt wrung out. It is only 12 days before Christmas, and not an ounce of shopping or wrapping was done because I remained glued to t...

    What a hot mess. I finished this book (and this trilogy) just to know what happened, only to find out that I didn't care. This entire book was written so sloppily, with characters careening around and losing their memories. I can't count how many times I rolled my eyes reading this book.Trynne was the only interesting character who didn't have their memory wiped or was taken out of the story by some "adventure." Gahalatine was an interesting char...

    Reader thoughts: Such emotional turmoil! I keep hoping JW will be nice to his characters and stop putting them through such heartache (and heartbreak!). Poor Trynne has to deal with EVERYTHING in the space of a few months, and she deals with it almost too maturely. (Remember, she is only 16/17, and emotions are tough at that age regardless of what happens to your family/kingdom/best friend/husband/duchy/magic/captain).Trynne has almost no support...

    I enjoyed this book. I have read a little bit from these worlds before, but was not up to speed on this series. I thought this book was very good stand alone. The characters are presented in ways that display their traits and lets you get to understand them. The authors prose and style worked well, everything seemed to flow well throughout the story. The plot itself was complex in terms of details and probably tied together many things I didn't f...

    Gahaltine has swrn fealty to the King of Kingfountain, however, his wizars and Morwenna do not intend to give up.  Although he has married Tryneeowy, they have not married because the laws of his lands do not allow it if one of the parents of the bride are not able to give their consent.  He has returned to his lands and his met by treachery and deceit.  Rucrius, who he believed was dead informs him that he has been deceived by his wife as he ...

    Loved it! I hope there's more!I have enjoyed this series from the very beginning, and from it, I found my way to Jeff Wheeler's other series. I always felt a connection between the worlds from when I went from the first half of this series to both of the Muirwood ones. I loved how those connections where fully explored in this book. I just need to read the other series now to get the full effect. I felt some things left hanging in this one, espec...

    I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I really hated to see this series end. I highly suggest starting with book 1 of the series. Anyone from age 14 - 100+ will enjoy this series. Mr. Wheeler is an expert weaver of unique world building and provides a caudry of captivating, intriguing characters that you will either love or dislike with a passion. Trynne and the gang are back in this story. Unfort...

    Disclaimer: I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.Mr. Wheeler is an incredibly thoughtful storyteller. His characters are layered and complicated without being gimmicky. You won't find edginess for the sake of being edgy. The narrative, emotions, and settings are simply very earnest.In the 6th book of his Kingfountain series, Mr. Wheeler weaves together so many different characters, motivations, plotlines, an...

    I'm not sure how I feel about this last book. While I have read most of Wheeler's books, I had not read some of them for years and a couple of them not at all. I didn't appreciate the other references to his other worlds. I spent too much time trying to remember what those references meant in his other worlds and how they would add to this book. I gave the book five stars despite this annoyance because I suspect if I were to ever go back and read...
