  1. I would love to win The Shadow Throne! I am dying to read it and have been waiting to finish this amazing trilogy.

          • I would love love LOVE to get the Shadow Throne! I would probably donate it to myself. But then again, we have some very book-hungry Sages living in our house and the book probably wouldn’t be mine for long! 🙂

  2. I would love to win a copy of The Shadow Throne. My 9 and 10-year-old daughters and I are just dying to read the final book in this trilogy. We would donate it to their school library when we are done, as it is extremely underfunded and under supplied.

  3. Omigosh, I just preordered Shadow Throne the other day! I’d like to enter for a signed ARC here anyway, and I’ll just unorder it if I win. 😀 I’d also, If its not too much trouble, like the Spanish FALSE PRINCE for myself. I’m reading books in Spanish for school (I’m home schooled), and I would love to read FP! 😀

  4. I would love to win The Shadow Throne for my students who are so anxious to read the final book. They know I have the eARC, and are disappointed they can’t read it. I would be “Super Librarian” if I could get a copy for them to read! 🙂

  5. I would love to win The Runaway King hardcover! I have a feeling that my little brother would love this series!!

    Here’s my link: https://twitter.com/ScottReadsIt/status/424760585884934144

  6. It would be really great to have an ARC copy of “The Shadow Throne.” I started reading this series when it came out and immediately enjoyed it. It became tied for my favorite book. I feel like it would be amazing to say that I have an ARC copy of “The Shadow Throne.”

    Here’s the link to my twitter – https://twitter.com/SuperRealGareth

  7. I would love to have the shadow throne for my sister, she & I are alike in many ways, one, we love reading. Her birthday in next month & I have no idea what to I’ve her, so I saw your post on twitter & thought “hey I should enter in this for Ashley!” She’s read the false prince & the runaway king & like me, she’s in love! I’m hoping she’ll left me or row the book after she reads it haha. But I really would forevermore grateful if you let me win this book.

  8. I already bought all 3 books in the trilogy for my Nook, so I will be donating my copy of The Runaway King so I’d love to win The Shadow Throne for my middle school library! As a school librarian, I love when I can get kids excited about a new series- and The False Prince is already flying off of the shelves!

  9. Thanks for “chatting” with me on Twitter yesterday and on Jan. 7! I must say that in my geeky, librarian world, connecting with an author directly really excites me, especially when I love the author’s books as much as I do yours! I would be happy with any of your books for my library- my students already love the Ascendance Series! If I had to pick, I’d probably choose The Runaway King (then I’d keep my hardcover copy!).

  10. I loved the series and I am trying to encourage my teens/tweens to read the series. I would like a copy of The False Prince to get them started and I will give it away at our library’s author festival, BAM, in April.

  11. I would love to win a copy of The Shadow Thrones. I have about five students who have either finished or are working on The Runaway King at the moment, and they keep asking me if I plan on buying the final book. I also have another five students who have read or are reading The False Prince and they can’t put it down. I do of course plan on getting a copy of the final book, but it would be a joy to be able to surprise the students with an advanced reader copy. Thank you for the joy you have brought into my students’ lives.

  12. I would love to get The Runaway King! I’ve read The False Prince multiple time and I just have to know where things go from there! Here’s my Twitter and Facebook links about The False Prince.

  13. I would love to win the The Shadow Throne to donate to the kids in my class from last year who have been waiting patiently since last April for it to come out! They come by my classroom at least once a week to see when it is going to be here!

    I would also love the Le Faux Prince (French THE FALSE PRINCE) to put in our school library. We are working on adding more international language books to encourage our kids to speak and read in their mother tongue and we have a number of french speaking students (I live in Canada).

  14. I would absolutely LOVE to receive a signed hardcover copy of the Runaway King as I enjoyed it immensely! It would give me such joy to give it as a gift to my sister who is a massive fan of your work and who is starting to build her own book collection one step at a time!
    Can’t wait for The Shadow Throne and thank you for writing the Ascendece Trilogy 🙂

  15. It would make me so happy to receive Le Faux Prince (French THE FALSE PRINCE) as I am studying French this year. Having already read the English version I would love to read this in an attempt to improve some of my French vocabulary and enjoy the book for another time. After I have devoured the book in all its glory, I will gladly share it around with others in my French class. Please consider me to win this! It would mean so much to me.

  16. I know my French teacher would love Le Faux Prince, as our French classroom is sadly empty of many actual novels in French (we have only an abridged Phantom of the Opera).

  17. I would love to win a signed copy of The Runaway King, as it has so far been my facorite book (though I hope The Shadow Throne surpasses it!)

  18. I would love to win The False Prince. I love the series, and I really loved how everything flowed so perfectly in the first book and how it kept me on my toes! I would love to own it so I could read it again and again.

  19. I would love to win The Shadow Throne so I could see how the whole series gets wrapped up, and what happens to everybody!

  20. I would be so excited to win a copy of Shadow Throne! I would then donate it to my local library…they do much for the community and deserve a donation of what I know will be an amazing book!
    P.S. I posted about your books on my FB page!

  21. I would love to win The Runaway King. I really love the series, and I enjoyed all the adventure in this book 🙂 I would lend the book to my friend who also loves reading! (Same goes for the two comments I put before)
    Here is the twitter link -https://twitter.com/R_Husain100/status/425016357034266625

  22. Oh my gosh! Totally would love to win THE SHADOW THRONE!!! I would first read it with my 10 year old daughter, then we would share it with her 5th grade class at GARLAND ELEMENTARY here in UT! She loved when you visited last year, she is hoping you come again this year!

    • WHY: Because it is our favorite series and one of the best ever! We try to spread the greatness of it all the time! Even got tons of family in Idaho reading it and sharing it too! Just recommended it to a young girl in Vernal just last week!

  23. I tweeted about you! https://twitter.com/tiffduke/status/425028611385462784

    Hoping for THE SHADOW THRONE!

  24. I would love it if I could get my hands on The Shadow Throne. I would donate it to someone who’s having a bad day, so they can calm down and enjoy the action the book has to offer. I would want that person to pass the book on to someone else who’s having a hard time, so in the end a whole bunch of people would have read the book and see how great the trilogy really is.

  25. Would love hard copy of Run Away King for our Lancaster Elementary School Library! We are not so patiently waiting for our paperbacks due out Jan. 28th.

  26. Ok i’m new to this free give-away stuff so I have a couple of questions.
    1.Do we enter here or on your website? or do we email you the entry?
    2.So in the entry we just write our name, the book, who we plan to give it too and why?
    3. If we win how do we get the book? by mail or something?

    • 1. Here, in comments.
      2. You don’t need your name – that shows up anyway. Just the book and who you’d give it to (even if it’s yourself).
      3. If you win, I’d ask you to send me a mailing address, so I can mail you the book.

      Good luck!

  27. I am DYING to read The Shadow Throne!! This has been one of my favorite series in the last ten years and I can’t wait to find out how it ends!!

  28. I would love to win a copy! I’ve read book 1 & 2 and loved them! Keep writing!!!

  29. My son’s sixth grade teacher has him hooked and eager to read The Shadow Throne. If we won a copy of this I would let my son read it, then donate it to his teacher. When we are both done, we would donate to the school library. He is so incredibly excited to read this book, and I would love to be able to get this for him.

  30. Shadow of Throne, please! I’ve read the False Prince and the Runaway King. I can’t wait to finish reading the series. Then it will be donated to S.C. Lee Library in Copperas Cove, TX. I am a library aide there. Also, False Prince is one of the Lone Star Nominees so lots of students have read it. Thank you for this opportunity!

  31. I would like a copy of the Spanish The False Prince. I take spanish myself but I would like to send it to a boy who my family donated some money to. I hope that even if he has a limited vocabulary that he will try and enjoy the book like I did. His name is Danny.
    I personally would really like the Shadow Throne or the Runaway King because of selfish reasons- they are missing from my shelves! 🙂

  32. I would LOVE a copy of The Shadow Throne (to read myself of course!) but more so to donate and pass around to my moms group since we read the first two as part of a book club we have 🙂 fingers crossed 😉

  33. I would really love to get the shadow throne and then I can pass it to everyone I have gotten to read the other two! They would love that!

  34. I would love to win a copy of The False Prince for my classroom library. I read it with my kids and my son doesn’t want to donate his copy to the classroom. He loves it too much!

  35. I would LOVE to win a copy of The Shadow Throne to share with my students. Last year I read book one & two and can’t wait to see what happens next! I would donate the book to my school library to share the love with the kids.

  36. I would love to win a copy of The Runaway King for my classroom. If I give my son a signed copy, he would give me his copy for my classroom. LOL

  37. I would want the Runaway King to give to my friend. She just started a job as a YA librarian at a tiny public library that is woefully underfunded. They could use a beautiful hardback signed copy!

  38. I would love to win a copy of The False Prince! I have a friend who I’ve told a lot about the series and I would love to give her a copy and let her get started on it!

  39. And, of course, I would love to win The Shadow Throne because we have been waiting forever to see what happen with Jeron and his kingdom!

    Thank you for the opportunity to win these amazing books!!

  40. Of course, I can’t help but want an ARC copy of The Shadow Throne for myself, for all the obvious reasons! This book can NOT come out fast enough, in my opinion!

  41. I would also love the French False Prince. I know French and my sister is learning so I would pass it to her but French copies of anything are hard to get 😉 In Utah at least so that would be awesome 😉

  42. I would love The Shadow Throne! I just finished The Runaway King and am dying to find out what happens. I teach middle school literature and I have to wait for a weekend when the books aren’t checked out to catch up.

  43. I posted this to my facebook page! Hope I win so I can have The Shadow Throne for my classroom library. A lot of my students are waiting for it.

  44. I would love the False Prince. It is my first year back to teaching after staying home with my children and I’m excited to have a classroom again. I know my students would absolutely LOVE a new read aloud. I teach intellectually disabled students grade 6,7,8. I would be thrilled to read and explain this book to them and open their world to a new adventure. On that note I would be excited to collaborate with Dean Morin our french teacher and have him read the french version to his students. So I’m also asking for maybe a copy of Le Faux Prince for Mr. Morin!!! Thank you!!

  45. I can’t wait to read Shadow Throne! Fell in love with this series, it was such a great surprise! I volunteer at an elementary school to promote reading. I ordered the first 2 books for our class library. I use it as a great example of an exciting book for both boys and girls. They love them!

  46. Wow. Thanks for this great giveaway. I’m finding it difficult to choose, so I’ll enter twice. For my 5th grade class, I’d love one of the Shadow Throne ARCs for our library. I have lots of students reading the series, and we’d love to know how it ends! Here is the link to my retweet: https://twitter.com/nielsenwriter/status/425054102616174592

  47. I would love a copy of the shadow throne for my little sister. She loves Imogene and wants to know just what happens to her. Thanks

  48. I would love to win a copy of The Runaway King for the students of my school. I have The False Prince and would love to have the second book in the series. I loved The False Prince and need to read the rest of the series to see how it ends!

  49. I would absolutely LOVE to win a copy of The False Prince because I’ve really been dying to read it but haven’t had much time for the past few months. I just read two books over break, though, and am looking for a new series! I haven’t had a real book in a while since I’ve gotten a Kindle, and I’d love to smell that new book smell again… 🙂

    • HOWEVER, I wouldn’t mind winning the Runaway King since I really need a book to read and am too excited to wait and see if I win 🙂 Then I’d already have the second waiting for me 🙂

  50. I am interested in The Shadow Throne and would donate the copy to my classroom. We already have a copy of The Runaway King (thanks to my dog who chewed up the copy I had checked out from my public library – effectively “recommending” it to my students). So now my students have discovered this series and are looking forward to reading the third book.

  51. I teach ESL at a public school where there are several students who know Spanish, so I am also interested in El Falso Principe for the ESL classroom at AHS. It would be a great way to get several of my Spanish speakers started on the series.

  52. For my other entry, I’d love one of the signed copies of The Runaway King to share with my colleagues. I gave both of the other teachers on my team, plus our Special Education teacher, copies of The False Prince for Christmas 2013. Our goal is to get students in “the zone” when they read, and The False Prince is perfect for that. I would love for these teachers to be able to hand the second book to students who come back hungry for more. For this entry, I shared from your FB page to mine. Thanks again for the giveaway…and your fabulous books!

  53. I’d love to win the ARC of The Shadow Throne which I’d donate to my school library (after reading it myself, of course!). I’d also love Le Faux Prince. I’m a French teacher and reading in French keeps me up on the language.

  54. I’d love to win a copy of The Shadow Throne and once I read it, hand it out to my Muller Road Middle School students who are dying to read it also. I’ve got 2 seventh graders in mind as I type. I’m sharing this with a colleague/friend who served with me on the SC Junior Book Award Committee and sharing w/ the entire committee who reside on FB. We’re very excited about your books!

  55. I want the Shadow Throne ARC to give to my daughter, we met you when you came to Lexington Ky and you are her favorite author!!! Plus then I could read it too since I am also a huge fan 🙂

    • I shared the post about the giveaway on Facebook.

  56. I’d love to win an ARC of The Shadow Throne. I would give it to myself but gladly loan it out to trustworthy friends.

  57. I would love The Shadow Throne!! I read The False Prince to my class last year, and we looped up this year. I have been seeing that book being passed around by the kids who weren’t with us last year, and the enthusiasm for it is sky-high!

  58. Having El Falso Principe would be awesome! I always have some Spanish speaking children in class. I also teach at an IB school, and all of our students take Spanish every year they are with us. Our fifth graders are able to go on a international trip, and students have visited a city in Spain each year we’ve done this trip. Our librarian is working hard to build a section in our library that houses books in a variety of languages!

  59. I’m a middle school teacher, and a huge fan of your trilogy. I would love to win the arc of Shadow Throne to complete my classroom set. I can’t wait to book talk it. I also posted on Facebook.

  60. I want The Shadow Throne. I am planning on donating it to myself because I think if I don’t get to read it soon I just might wither away into some dark corner. Just kidding…but seriously I want it really really bad.

  61. i would want the shadow throne. i would keep it because it is my favorite trilogy.

  62. This is my entry:

    I’d like “The Shadow Throne” and if that’s possible then “The Runaway King”.
    I’m going to buy the books myself so i’ll donate this one to my school library.

    (If I’m missing anything please tell me and i’ll add it)

  63. I would so desperately love The Shadow Throne. I would love you. Like, forever. I missed out on the ARC giveaway, but hey, what goes around comes around. And now I’ve got another chance!! Thank you, thank you, I love you. So, yes. The end.
    (I did all that right, didn’t I?)

  64. I love the Ascendance Trilogy, I even won ARC copies of the first two. I’ve have enjoyed getting lost in this magnificent world. I would love to win the last book. I would donate the copy to Our Lady of Lordes, so a cancer patient can enjoy you’re marvelous writing.

  65. My daughter and I are anxiously awaiting The Shadow Throne. I would love to get my nephew, who lives in Guatemala, hooked on the series with El Falso Principe.

  66. My son attends a Spanish immersion school I am sure they would love to have the Spanish version of The False Prince

  67. I would love the #3 Shadow of Throne arc! I would donate it to my middle school classroom library to complete the series!

  68. I would love to receive a copy of a The Shadow Throne. I work in a middle school library and my budget has been frozen and I haven’t been able to purchase this book for our collection. I have slit of kids who have read the other two books and would be thrilled to get their hands on it! Of course, after I have had a chance to read it 🙂

  69. I would love to win a copy of the Runaway King. I would donate it to my childrens’ school library (Waggoner Elementary School in Tempe, AZ). Their librarian, Ms. Janice Rubocki, loves when children recommend books to her, and Sammy (my son) has already told her all about your Elliot & The Goblin Wars books, as well as the False Prince series.

  70. I would love to win a copy of the False Prince. As mentioned above, I would donate it to my childrens’ school library (Waggoner Elementary School in Tempe, AZ). Their librarian, Ms. Janice Rubocki, loves when children recommend books to her, and Sammy (my son) has already told her all about your Elliot & The Goblin Wars books, as well as the False Prince series.

  71. I want to win The Shadow Throne so I can find out how the trilogy ends! I would donate it to myself 🙂

  72. I would love to win an ARC of The Shadow Throne. As previously mentioned, my son, Sammy has read all of your books, so I would give this one to him (although, I hope he’ll let me read it too).

    Thank you for sharing!
    Wendy

  73. I would love to win The Runaway King so I can have my own copy to reread whenever I want. So that would be donating to myself also 🙂

  74. I am in LOVE with The False Prince. As the vice-chair of our state book award committee, I couldn’t recommend it enough to our members. Of the 80+ books I read for consideration this year, it stands head and shoulders above everything else I read. I can’t wait each time it is returned in my school’s library so I can recommend it to the next child. I would love to have The Runaway King. It would go into my school’s library if I were to win.

  75. I would love a copy of The Runaway King! I am not going to lie, I would keep it because I love this series, but I love sharing my favorite books with my friends and find out if they enjoy them as much as I do.

  76. I just recommended the trilogy to my Facebook friends and linked them to your blog!! See my previous post! 😉

  77. I would love to win The Runaway King because I simply must know what happens next in the series; also, because once I get my sisters to read The False Prince, which our library has, I’m sure they too would love to have access to the next one.

    A Spanish edition of The False Prince would find itself well loved here since my sisters and I are working on learning Spanish since half of our relatives speak it. And because the library in the state we now live in is sorely lacking in foreign editions of books.

    Thank you for the great giveaway! Cannot wait till the release of The Shadow Throne (yay for not having long to see how the series ends).

  78. I’d love to have an ARC of Shadow Throne for my son and I!! Big fans. We’ve read The False Prince and are almost done with The Runaway King – those we’d donate to Gideon Welles Middle School (all 6th graders). Thank you for writing this series – it’s been a fun way to bond with my 4th grader.

  79. I’d love to win any of the copies! I’d donate them to my classroom library because the copy I own is in constant rotation in my class. 🙂

  80. I am so looking forward to reading the 3rd book, “The Shadow Throne” but would gladly give it to my daughter who is a 6th grade teacher and works with struggling readers. She deserves it for all the efforts and selfless work in attempting to share her love of reading with her students!

  81. I would LOVE to win The Shadow Throne! If I were to win, I would donate it to my son, Jack, who first introduced us to this fantastic trilogy. Once Jack -okay, and the rest of the family-has read it, we would donate it to his 5th grade classroom because he has inspired so many of his friends to read the first two books!

  82. Definitely the book 3 ARC, I would share it with my younger brother who I actually just introduced to your series this week and is already finished 1 and 2.

  83. I…er…we (my 10 yr old and I) would of course love to receive The Shadow Throne! We are counting down the days until Feb. 25th. We donated our copy of The False Prince to our local library because we felt it needed to be shared. But then I was so disappointed I donated it because I realized this was series I would want to share with my 6 year old son some day. Needless to say, I ended up buying a kindle version of it for him. We love sharing our books. So after they have done the full family round we either donate them to our local library or a friend who we know will love it as much as we do.

  84. It would really like to win The Shadow Throne!! I have been wait for it ever since I have finished The Runaway King. If I win I would like to donate it to my grade 6 teacher for introducing your books to me. Many of my classmate also read your book and are waiting for The Shadow Throne to be released. I would love to read more of your books in the future!(^o^)

  85. I shared this on Twitter and Facebook! This is my new favorite series. I hope I get a copy of something!

  86. I’d love to win a Shadow Throne ARC, or a signed hardcover of The Runaway King. Then I’ll buy another copy of The False Prince and give away my copy of The Runaway King to a donate-a-book program here in Manila. I want to share with more people my love for this series (which I already do anyway)!

  87. Good luck to all the participants. Geography really hurts my chances of winning, so I’ll abstain and give other loyal fans a chance to win these special copies (with autograph!)

    I am just so thanking Jennifer Nielsen for bringing us the finally of the Ascendance trilogy. More powers and I am so looking forward for your new series after this. As Jaron’s story closes, another one opens for Nic in The Praetor Wars.

    You are certainly one of the authors to watch. But don’t feel pressured when I say I am gonna be expecting a lot of books from you in the future.

    Cheers!

  88. i would love to win an ARC copy of The Shadow Throne for the very simple reason that I can no longer wait. one month is a month too long till its release. i have loved the Ascendance trilogy from the very first word, and “meeting” Jaron is an adventure in itself. after i read it to my heart’s content, it will be passed on to my 9 year old daughter who loves adventure books as much as I do (who has her own section in the family library).
    Thanks so much…

  89. I Really really want an ARC copy of book 3. Both my wife and I love this series. I’d give it to her as a birthday present (Feb 15) which I’ll be missing because of a writers conference I attend every year.

    I’m sharing this on FB.

  90. I would love to win a copy of The False Prince. My family and I haven’t tried this trilogy yet, but it looks fantastic!

  91. We’ve got a signed paperback copy of The False Prince, so a signed copy of “The Runaway King” would move us in the right direction–and then hopefully you’ll be doing some signings at our local Barnes & Noble again and we can get a signed “The Shadow Throne” to complete our collection!

  92. So looking forward to the final book in the trilogy! I already own Runaway King, so if I won that I’d donate it to our children’s hospital book cart. I’m not sure I could give up Shadow Throne, unfortunately.

  93. Of the choices, I would pick The Runaway King and give it to my daughter. She read The False Prince and loved it. Congrats with the release! And thanks for the opportunity!

  94. Nice one Miss Jen and thanks again for the giveaway 🙂 I hope I will win a copy of the Runaway king this time. Because it is expensive here in our country and yet there is no paperback version for your books. That’s why I haven’t read the second book. ” Happiness never decreases by being shared.”- Budhha I will share it to my friends and my sister who are book lovers :).

  95. I would LLLLLOOOOOVVVVEEEE to win a copy of The Shadow Throne. My family and I have been listening to The False Prince and The Runaway King on audible but I’ve always wanted to have an actual copy of the books. The Ascendance Trilogy has inspired me to follow my instincts and to be brave even at hard times. If i won a copy of The Shadow Throne, I would donate it to my self and my family for us to read together. i love to read and reading the first two books of The Ascendance trilogy makes me feel as though I am Sage. I love your books. Thank you so much for writing such an incredible book series!!!!!

  96. I’d like to win the shadow throne for myself because i love this series nd can’t wait to see how Jason’s adventure ends

  97. I would like a copy of The Runaway King. My friends and I would love a copy because we couldn’t all finish the book, so it would be amazing to let them read it too.

  98. The Shadow Throne would be amazing too. I would donate it to my school library because we usually don’t get new books until 2 months after the release date. And I know at least 10 other people (at my school) who hate it when books don’t come at that time because they are book freaks too.

  99. I would LOVE to win The Shadow Throne and when im done i will donate it to the library because i know there are people at my school who would love to read this.

  100. I would also love to win The Runaway King. i would also donate it to the library because i only see two copies of the book.

  101. i would also love to win The False Prince and i will also donate it to the library because there is only one copy.

  102. I would also love a copy of Le Faux Prince. I know a reader who would love The False Prince in French.

  103. I would love to win a copy of The Runaway King to donate to our school library. So many students are dying to know what happens next, and neither our school library nor the local public library has a copy of book 2.

  104. On a more selfish note, it would be an honor to own a signed hardcover of any of your books, because I have watched as adults and students alike find themselves deeply wrapped up in the world you have created in this series. I, of course, am no exception.

  105. Hello! My teacher recommended for me to read The False Prince, since I don’t read a lot- but because of that book, now I’m very intrigued in reading fantasy. I would like to win an ARC of The Shadow Throne and would probably drool over it if I got my hands on it! After reading it, I will be donating it to my resource teacher, who helps me pursue my dream of writing, and she will add it to her library that is available to students.
    My tweet: https://twitter.com/tfang1289/status/425495257724092419

  106. A copy of The Runaway King would be just as amazing as The Shadow Throne. Why not submit an entry for each book, huh?
    -fingers crossed- ^_^

  107. Hmm, third time’s the charm?
    The False Prince is the first book. And it is always awesome to own the first book of a trilogy/series because you can reread it over and over without having to refresh your memory! As I mentioned in my first post, if I won I would be giving it to my wonderful resource teacher. Thank you for giving un-bloggy readers like me a chance to win these (=

  108. I would love to win an ARC of The Shadow Throne!

    If I win, when I am finished reading I shall proudly shelf it on my living room bookshelves with the rest of the very best books I own. And in a few years I will pass it along to my son who I know will LOVE this series!

  109. I would love to win a signed copy of The Runaway King because signed copies of awesome books are the BEST!!!

    I don’t have my own copy yet so I would keep if for myself. (I would share it with my family of course 🙂

  110. I would love to win a copy of The False Prince!!

    If I win, it will be well loved over and over until no one will probably want it donated to them!

  111. I tweet about the giveaway and post it on facebook.

    * Btw Miss Jen I will be sending my drawing of Sage and Imogen as well as Prince Jaron standing beside a tall hedge in a springtime garden (chapter 34-The False Prince) as a token of appreciation. I hope you like it hehe 🙂 Thanks again for the giveaway 🙂

  112. Please send me “The Runaway King”!!! I looked for it to our bookstores here but can’t find one. Thanks a lot!!!!

  113. Le Faux Prince (French THE FALSE PRINCE) would make a lovely addition to my growing book collection especially since I am studying French at the moment and I absolutely love the English version of this book. Thanks for writing this series and my fingers are crossed to win this!

  114. A hardcover copy of The Runaway King would make my dreams come true! I have yet to read it and I adored the first book. It would make continuing Jaron’s story all the more meaningful and exciting 🙂

  115. I tweeted about this amazing series! My twitter handle is @ireneisacoolkid
    Would love to win a signed copy of The Shadow Throne ARC!

  116. I plan to share SHADOW THRONE with our eager 5th Gd. readers at Cub Run Elementary School.

  117. I would want to have The Runaway King please! :)) After reading I would like to donate it to my professor at English or my former teacher in high school. Anyways, thank you for this wonderful opportunity that you have given to us Ms. Nielsen! More power and God bless you.

  118. Trying to win also a copy of the shadow throne 🙂 Just like in my first comment I will share it to my friends and my sister who are book lovers.

  119. Hi! I was notified about this contest by a sixth grade student of mine who is a huge fan of The False Prince and The Runaway King. She can’t wait for The Shadow Throne! We would be interested in winning an arc of The Shadow Throne. She told me that if she won the book, she would donate it to our library after she reads it and asked if we could comment together. How could I refuse? Especially since I am a fan of the books as well. Here are links to my reviews of both of them. http://proseandkahn.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-runaway-king-by-jennifer-nielsen.html and for The False Prince. http://proseandkahn.livejournal.com/410701.html

  120. Hi Ms Nielsen! I would like to win the hardbound copy of The Runaway King. I haven’t read the second book yet because I don’t have the budget to buy it =( so I really really hope I will win your contest =) God bless!

  121. here is my post about the series on twitter =) https://twitter.com/ohkaysaraf/status/425670006324490241

  122. I would love a copy of the false prince in French! I am doing an exchange program this summer and I would love to enhance my French before I go and I think it would make a great gift for one of my host siblings!

  123. I know my brother would enjoy having a copy of The False Prince in Italian, and I would be the best big sister ever if that was his birthday present from me!

  124. I would love a paperback copy of the False Prince, as it a) was a wonderful book, and b) vame to me in a time of literary drought, and got me reading again!

  125. I really would like The Shadow Throne. I can’t wait to read it! I really hope I win. I would also like a copy of the others to donate to my school library. Many kids at my school have read them, but it doesn’t hurt to raise that number a bit higher!

  126. I would love to win an arc of The Shadow Throne for my dad! He is a huge fan of the False Prince series, and it would make his day! Thanks! Plus, I’ll get to read it when he’s done! 🙂

  127. I would love to win a copy of the Runaway King! I am an avid reader, and instructional coach at a middle school. I would love to win this book and use it as an incentive for my teachers who is really trying to teach differently and is teaching kids to love reading along the way. All of the teachers I am working with are working hard to build classroom libraries that provide choice for students as they read for enjoyment, and to learn how to be better readers and writers.

  128. I know my brother would enjoy having a copy of the False Prince in Itallian, as he is doing a semester abroad in Florence. I mnow it would mean alot to him for me to send him a gift for his birthday while he’s over there.

  129. I would love an ARC of The Shadow Throne! Once I’m done, I’ll donate it to my cousin, who just got a job as a grade school teacher, for her classroom library.

  130. I would like to win a Turkish copy of The False Prince (Kayip Prens). I’m trying to learn how to speak Turkish and I think this would be great practice for me because it is one of my favorite books and I would be motivated to try to read it.

  131. I would also like to win a copy of The Shadow Throne. I would donate the copy to my school library and be the first one to take it out!

  132. The ARC of The Shadow Throne, I am a librarian in an urban public school in Providence, RI. . I have a book club of students who are clamoring for book 3. If I won I would give it to one of my students.

  133. I WOULD DIE FOR A SIGNED COPY OF THE RUNAWAY KING!!!!!!!!!!! In other words:
    I’ll take the Runaway King please. I’d donate my older hardcover copy to my friends Josie and Madie (twins), who haven’t read the 2nd book yet but really want to.
    It’s probably to damaged to be put in a library…. 😉

  134. I would also really love an ARC of the Shadow Throne! It’s soooo beautiful and even though there’s only about a month to go it’s beautiful and I want it!!! *Moans* Me with an ARC of the Shadow Throne would be like Gollum with the “one ring”: “MY PRECIOUS! MY PRECIOUS! They don’t understand us precious. Us crazy obsessed fans…” Yep.

  135. Is it okay for my siblings to enter for the contest under my email address? We all love the series so much! Even my nine-year-old sis, who normally despises reading, is re-reading The False Prince on her own.

  136. I would also love <3 a signed copy of the runaway king. I love this book so so so so so so so so so etc. much

  137. If I won a copy of the False Prince I would be able to donate my copy of it to my middle school library.

  138. I would really like an ARC of the Shadow Throne. This is my very favorite series and I can’t wait to see how it ends. If I got this book, I would read it, and then let my sister read it, and then give it to a friend who has joined in the excitement of these books and would very much appreciate it.

  139. Also, I would really like a signed copy of the Runaway King. I would give it to my sister who adores these books as much as I do.

  140. I would want an ARC of the Shadow Throne because I’m very interested to find out how the trilogy ends. Will there be a twist, like George R.R. Martin and his “Song of Ice and Fire” series or J.K. Rowling and her Snape twist? I plan on keeping it for myself, because I like to lend out my books to others to read, and this way I would be able to easily recommend this series to others while lending them the books at the same time.

  141. Thanks so much for this giveaway, it’s really kind of you. I’d like to enter for an ARC of The Shadow Throne, which I plan on sharing with my brother and lending to a friend.

    By the way, the mention of the non-English books reminded me – do you have any more details on the publication of The False Prince in Chinese, which you mentioned a while ago? 🙂

    Thanks again!

    • Thanks, Wendy. I haven’t seen anything on the Chinese versions (there will be two: one in Simplified Chinese, and the other in Complex Chinese) yet, but I hope to very soon!

  142. Hi! I’d like to win The False Prince. I’ve been eyeing that series for a while now. So that explains why I’m so ecstatic to see you giving two of copies of The False Prince away! 🙂 Actually, I’d be happy to win any of the three. I’m planning on buying all three anyway. But after I finish reading the book I’ll also donate it to our school’s library.

  143. I would love to get one of all three of the options for 2 reasons. I would like the paperback of the false prince and tbe ARC of the shadow throne for my pleasure because k just want to be able to read them over and over and over but I’d like the signed copy of the runaway king for my librarian because she’s been a great influence to me and she turned me onto your books. She was really interested in this whole giveaway and I want to be able to give her something as amazing as she gave me if I win 🙂 thank you so much for this opportunity!

  144. I would LOVE to win an ARC of Shadow Throne so that I could a) review it on my book review blog, and, of course, read it myself! Also, I collect signed books, so that would be pretty awesome. And b) I would then proceed to lend/give it to a few of my friend who I’ve hooked on the series, as well.

  145. I would love to win a copy of The Shadow Throne! As soon as I was done reading it (so maybe a day:) I would donate it to the ROVER program at the Houston VA, an inpatient program for veterans with PTSD. My husband recently spent a month there and said your books were the perfect tone to keep him engaged but not regressing. We already left the first two there, and I would love to complete their collection! Oh, and I guess I’d have to let my husband read it, too. 🙂

  146. How are you going to choose the winners?

    • Random, computer-generated choosing. It’s the only fair way, I think.

  147. I’d kill for an ARC of the Shadow Throne! The storyline is just brilliant. The cover of The False Prince drew me to the series first. The content itself kept me reading!

    After I’m done reading it, I’d give it to my sisters and friends. 😀

    Best of luck to all entries!!

    Tweet: https://twitter.com/BlueCharlize/status/426082797028003840

  148. Starting reading this series while in a PTSD rehabilitation facility. Absolutely fell in love with it, I donated extra copies of the series to that program hoping that other veterans would enjoy it as well.

    • I would like The Shadow Throne to be donated to a PTSD program (ROVER) after I read it.

  149. I’d really love an ARC of the Shadow Throne!!! My friends and family and I all entered the contest to win a copy earlier hoping to get our hands on one of your amazing copies. Sadly, none of us won. I’d share with my family and friends (we call ourselves the Jonsters) so that we could all read it and ignite our obsession for all your amazing characters (Aka: SAGE) and go share it with the world. We are a little obsessed…it would be a dream come true.

  150. A signed copy of the Runaway King would be absolutly amazing!!!! It would make me feel so special to have a copy of YOUR book with YOUR signature in it. I would share it with my sister and her teacher whom she intruduced your books to.

  151. tweet:

    The False Prince and book and Mrs Nielsen are amazing!! I really recomend her books. They excite you every time. @nielsenwriter— Megan Jones (@nala373) January 23, 2014

  152. I’d want an ARC of Shadow Throne. And, hate to say it, but I’m donating it to myself. LoL I need the book now. 🙂

  153. I would like a signed copy of Runaway King. I’d be donating it to myself because I have a signed copy of The False Prince it would look lovely next to. It’s a bookplate signed copy, but, hey, it’s signed and I collect signed books.

  154. I know, I’m going for all 3…Sorry, but this is for the paperback of a False Prince because I think my niece and nephews would really enjoy the series so I’d actually donate it to my mom so she can keep it in her library for the grandkids to read when they come visit. I think she would also enjoy it too.

  155. Hi!
    When you came to our school last spring, I fell in love with your books. I think that the false prince and the runaway king are both great books and I haveread them both several times. I would love an ARC copy of the shadow throne. When I finish it, I will lend it to anyone in the class who wants it. (It will be a very long line, the series is very popular)

  156. I´d love to win The Falce Prince. My friend has read it and told it is a good one 🙂

  157. My students here at school have read the covers off The False Prince! It has been read so many times, it is falling apart. It would be the greatest gift I could give to go on morning announcements and let our students know that I received a brand new copy of The False Prince. Please consider me….

  158. I would love Shadow Throne. I love this series and my daughter will be finishing Runaway King soon. Thanks!

  159. I would love to win The False Prince. This is a series I could read over and over.

  160. This series is the best series I’ve ever read!!! i would love The False Prince!

  161. I would love The Runaway King!!! I love how Prince Jaron/Sage is so clever!!!

  162. I can’t wait until the third book comes out!!! I can’t wait to read The Shadow Throne!!! I would love to win this book!!!

  163. I am entering this contest in hopes to win the ARC copy of The Shadow Throne for myself. As selfish as this may seem, I will be able to read the final book in the trilogy before others I know have a chance to read it and spoil everything for me. Ever since I first read The False Prince, I started counting down until the release of The Runaway King. Once The Runaway King was in stores, I devoured it all it two days and started my count down until the release of The Shadow Throne. Unfortunately, since I live in Canada I will have to wait just a bit longer than the Americans do to read this book. I’m pretty sure that the wait will totally be worth it in the end. 😀

  164. I would love to win a hardback copy of The Runaway King, and I would donate it to my friend who has borrowed my copy and can’t seem to return it 🙂

  165. I would also love to win a copy of The Shadow Throne. Even though I’ve already preordered my copy, I would love to donate one to the above friend who is currently in love with my copies of The False Prince and The Runaway King 🙂

  166. I’d love to win a copy of The Runaway King! And… to be honest, I’d donate it to my bookshelf, so it could sit next to my copy of The False Prince and look pretty. 😉 My whole family loved the first two books of the trilogy, and we’re looking forward to the third one’s release in February.

  167. It would also be awesome to win an ARC of The Shadow Throne for myse–er, for my family and me. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win, and regardless of whether I do, I’ll be reading The Shadow Throne just as soon as I can get my hands on it!

  168. I would looove to win The Shadow Throne! We loved the first two and can hardly wait for the third one. Our family age range is from 15 to 42 and we ALL adore this series! thank you.

  169. I would be thrilled to win a signed copy of The Runaway King as well! What a great addition to our library!

  170. I decided to study French for my first year of high school, and if I could have The False Prince in French (or should I say Le Faux Prince) to look off of and study, that would be awesome!

  171. I would want to win the Shadow Throne ARC and to be honest I would probably keep it XD
    Or the False Prince to donate to the school where I volunteer to help out with their library (The beginning is always a great place to start!)

  172. I would love Le Faux Prince, because I’ve been slowly but surely losing the language since graduating colloge, and would like a good book to review my French.

  173. Would love to have a signed copy of The Runaway King! I love this book, favorite! I would probably keep it for myself since I don’t have my own copy.

  174. I’d love a copy of The False Prince! My boys will be in the target age group soon so I’m keeping it!!

  175. I’d love a copy of The Runaway King! My boys will be in the target age group soon so I’m keeping it!!

  176. I’d love an ARC of The Shadow Throne! My boys will be in the target age group soon so I’m keeping it!!

  177. Oh wow I would totally love a copy of the Shadow Throne!! I am a major fan of The Ascendance Trilogy, you’re my most favourite author 🙂
    I would keep it for myself 😛 because I just HAVE to see how your series ends.

  178. Hello, Miss Jennifer!

    I am a HUGE fan of your books!!!!!! I would love to win a copy of the Shadow Throne!!!!! I just CAN’T wait any longer to read it!!!!!! I have told many people about your books, and will share about it on Facebook! I wish you tremendous success with your writing!!! Here is the link for my post! https://www.facebook.com/sophia.pearl.33?fref=ts&ref=br_tf

  179. Here’s my tweet:

    https://twitter.com/rashidasaima089/status/425097299543330816/photo/1

    By the way, when will you announce the winners and when is are the entries gonna end?

  180. THE RUNAWAY KING
    keep it because I don’t have it

  181. Again? Awesome!
    Shadow Throne, are you still giving that out :O

  182. Shadow Throne! I love the series and can’t wait until it comes out

  183. I would LOVE to win an arc of The Shadow Throne!!!! Waiting for this book has been the longest wait ever! You are such a great author and I don’t have copies of any of your books so this would be so great!!!!

  184. dear Ms. Nielsen
    I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed the shadow throne really really badly. like so badly i will probably die and then i wont get to read it. I am going to do a ;ot of good things to get good karma. thank you for like, the third time, for wasting 5 minutes of your life reading my stuff.
    From your #1 fan,
    Gabi;)

  185. I would absolutely love an ARC of The Shadow Throne! Any of the other books sound amazing though. I would donate the book to my library, or if I could get a Spanish copy I would definitely give it to my Spanish teacher, she deserves it for all the hard work she does for us.

  186. I would love to win the Shadow Throne because I am completely hooked on this book series! My friend told me to read it awhile back, and though I was hesitant, I am now utterly enthralled with them. Getting a free copy would be really great, since my local library is really really small and probably wouldn’t get it for several months after it came out. If I got a free copy, I could even donate it after I finished so that the other kids in my town could read the whole series as well! It would mean so much to me if I won – I truly LOVE your writing style, particularly the first person limited viewpoint that you used in the first two. You helped inspire me to go into writing, and for that I can’t thank you enough!

  187. I want the book the shadow throne

    if I win it im going to donate the book to my teacher because she is the best teacher and she really wants the book.

  188. Let’s see. Let’s see.
    A) I would like to win (and I quote the amazing Jennifer Nielsen) “1 of 10 signed hardcover copies of Book 2 THE RUNAWAY KING.” (Haaaah…Flatter won’t get you anywhere.)
    B) I plan to “donate” it to…myself, which sounds awfully conceited. Why? Well, short story long: As I was embarking on a long, yet enjoyable journey through the Runaway King with Jaron as my guide, I found myself overwhelmingly enthralled by the excitement and entertainment that danced on the pages before me. Languid from sleep deprivation that usually accompanied amazing books , I reached for my…forty-seventh cup of coffee, but to my dismay, with a little (maybe mighty) nudge to the cup, it spilled and ultimately eradicated, or even desecrated, my copy.
    I was planning to buy a new copy, but your contest suddenly appeared, so I thought I might as well try. Although I would love the arc of Shadow Throne, having a SIGNED copy from one of my favorite authors would be extremely invigorating!

    • HAHAHAH!! I just realized the contest ended! My apologies. That’s embarrassing, haaa….ignore me. I’ll go hide in a ditch now… ; u ;

      • No worries – it’s not midnight here, so I’m still putting entries in!

  189. I would love to win The Shadow Throne. I loved the other two in the series, and I can’t wait to find out what Jaron does next. It’s just a shame this is a trilogy and not an ongoing series! I’ll miss the characters when it’s over.
    I would also like to donate a copy to my local middle school library, because I think a lot of students could get a great deal of enjoyment from this book.

  190. I really hope I’m not too late…I’d love to win a copy of Shadow Throne. I just ordered the paperback copy of The Runaway King last week and it’s on the way!!!

  191. I entered above but forgot to mention I would love to get the ARC of The Shadow Throne!

    • And that I would donate it to the recovery program I mentioned in my first entry.

  192. Can’t wait to find out if I’ve won anything!!!!!

  193. I would the Shadow Throne for a classroom copy for students to borrow. We have read the False Prince together, are currently reading the Runaway King together, and many are looking to move onto the third book in the trilogy.

    They are enjoying this journey with Sage, and the characters, plot, and theme have been essential in capturing the more reluctant readers.

    I’m always looking for translations (French Creole, Spanish, or Portuguese) as well.

    We are a seventh grade classroom at a school outside Boston, MA with a large low-income population (80% receive free or reduced lunch and 45% live below poverty level). For many, owning a book of their own is not a reality.

    Any books to giveaway or use in my classroom would be appreciated.

  194. I would love to win the Shadow Throne, I read your books super fast. They are my favorite series ever please give me a copy. I have read all of your books they are great. Please I would love to have a copy!

    • Sorry, Thomas – the contest is closed. But The Shadow Throne will be released in only a few weeks, so I hope you’ll get a chance to check it out then!

  195. Hi Jennifer Nielson I would like to win the Shadow throne,I have read both of the other ones 3 times (both the flase prince and the runaway king 3 times!) I am palning not to keep it but to donate the book to my school library,My school is where I have read it.It would be great still to get any of the choices and it would also be great if you signed my book!

    Thank you
    Natasha age 11

    • So sorry, Natasha – the contest is closed. But “The Shadow Throne” will release in only another week and a half, so I hope you’ll have the chance to check it out soon!

  196. Is this still available? 😛

    ((Only slightly joking))

    • Ha! Watch this blog over the weekend for an “Even Bigger Book Giveaway!” (Not joking!)
