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 ...more

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 seems and I was kept on my toes by every turn of events. At many p

Don’t miss this series!

Inexplicably, I wasn’t crazy about Trynne and Fallon and was actually shipping her with Gahalatine. Still, this is a conclusion of epic proportions.

When I was younger, I thought, that I could write my own fantasy book. It couldn’t be that hard, right? You draw a cool world map, invent some cultures, spice it with magic and tell your story. Well, over the years, I’ve learned that it is much more complicated than that. Oftentimes, I was in awe about the cleverness and brilliance of some authors’ plots, how they keep track of their threads, make them come together with multiple POVs (and books), how they make me care about their flawed charact ...more

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 full-blood sister of the king, she is prepared to set fo ...more

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 ...more

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

It's over? Color me nonplussed

There 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 blatant than the eagles in LOTR. We saw where it was

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 is more to come.

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 character has any sort of development or meaning. I fin ...more

I received this book for free from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This final book did not leave up to the previous instalments in the series; it did still contain all of the things that made me initially fall in love with the world and the characters that inhabit it. The world-building and characters are still exemplary and Kate Rudd's narration still brings me great joy.

My issue with this finale is twofold; first is this crosses over with one of Wheeler

Wonderful book

This last book in the series is about the battle and the Painted Knight when she went to another world in search of her father. She found new enemies and different magics that were after her.

Today I was given the gift of relief from my normal responsibilities and allowed to read this entire book with very little interruption. Normally I squeeze reading time in between regular life. It felt like I was on vacation this afternoon. What a rare joy and pleasure.

This is my favorite book in the series. It makes the set up from previous books totally worth it. I didn't want to put it down and was so grateful I mostly didn't have to. The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five

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 constructed a very satisfying end to his heroine's journey. ...more

Captivating

I hate to see the end of this very captivating series. I don't think there will be another like it. Sigh.... I would say I wish this could be a tv series but I'm afraid they would ruin it. I love this series and am amazed it is free for amazon prime members. Thank you Mr. Wheeler for an amazing read!

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.

I’ve truly loved the final of Kingfountain series! The characters took their own decisions in the end and I really think that was an improvement when compare to other final series books. It was a pleasure to read this series, I totally recommend it!

A fantastic series that left me wanting to discover more of this author's works. I loved both the Arthurian as well as the Wars of the Roses influences on the story which melded well with the author's own storyline. Well worth a read. ...more

possible Spoilers ahead.



I'm not sure about the middle. Never having read the Muirwood books I found it hard care about the people and events in the middle. I just wanted the book to get back to the storyline I cared about.

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.
