Countdown for The Captive Kingdom Begins!

The Countdown has begun!!! Here is all you need to know to start us off: The Captive Kingdom by Jennifer A. Nielsen is the fourth book in the Ascendance Series (beginning with The False Prince). Release date is October 6, 2020. That is a week away. Note: I’m sorry but I was off, it’s not an eight-day countdown, it’s just a week but with eight posts (because I will do a post on release day). But it’s all good. 

Important note: most of these posts will have spoilers (today is one of the few exceptions). For most of them you will need to have read at least THE FALSE PRINCE.

What’s going to be in the countdown?

A lot of fun stuff from the book series. Like mood boards, fan art, trivia, and much more. They shouldn’t be long posts just some quick stuff to get us all excited and ready.

So, are YOU ready?

Then, let’s do this!!

I’m going to start each post off with sharing one of my top eight favorite characters from the series. 

8th favorite character: Rulon Harlowe (from The Runaway King and The Shadow Throne) Rulon Harlowe is a nobleman from Libeth. I like how kind and thoughtful he is. Since I promised no spoilers today, I’m not going to say much about him. But for the other posts I’ll explain why I like that character a whole lot better than I did today.

Now the rest of my surprises are inspired from The False Prince. If you’ve never read the book, note the main character’s name is Sage. It’ll help you understand everything better.

And now, here is my mood board (you will get a mood board for each post)….

I’m super excited for this. So, just build up that anticipation and keep scrolling.

And here it is…

Like it? Don’t forget to let me know in the comments what you like and what you want to see more of. And if there’s something I don’t have and you want to see. I want this series of posts to be filled with things YOU want to see.

The next thing is some fan art I’ve done of Sage and Imogen. I’m not the best drawer, so my apologies if the people look weird.

Here’s my button art I’ve been sharing around. I did this a year ago, after I had first read the series.

Now, at the end of each post, I will be giving about three trivia questions. Feel free to answer them in the comments. All of these come from The False Prince. Have fun!

#1. What was the stone in the pommel of the imitation of Prince Jaron’s sword?

#2. Finish this sentence:  “You’ll address me as Sir or Master Conner.”

                                              “What are you wanting me for, ——-“

#3. Multiple choice: Who did Sage say this to: “I never denied being a fool. That’s the difference between us.”

  •         A. Errol
  •         B. Cregan
  •         C. Tobias
  •         D.  Conner   

I’ll post the answers tomorrow. And the further we go, the harder the questions will get. 

So, let’s chat! Have you read The False Prince? If so, did you see the plot twist at the end coming? Answer in the comments below! I can’t wait to hear from all of you!!!! And thank you for reading the first post in my week countdown. Don’t forget the long-awaited fourth book in the Ascendance Series is coming Oct. 6!!!!!!!!!

She is the author of Don't Let Me Go (Sky's the Limit Press 2024), May We Make Them Proud (2023), and a co-editor for two anthologies. What she’s probably doing right now is fangirling about her favorite books to random people or scanning the pantries for chocolate.
