MarkOfTheThief1Congratulations to those who’ve won an arc of MARK OF THE THIEF! There were several hundred entries, and I wish I had more arcs to give away in this round…but, I was so impressed with what you all wrote and some of the cool facts you uncovered, I decided to add two more for an even TEN. There will be more opportunities to win over the next several weeks, and if all else fails, the book will be released in only two more months (Feb 24).

If your name is below, then please send me an email with your mailing address and the name you would like the book inscribed to (or signature only, if you prefer). My email is jen at jennielsen dot com.

Finally, how about another excerpt from the book? Here, Nic has been forced to fight in the venatio, the animal hunt, in the amphitheater (Colosseum).

“Bestiarius, bestiarius,” the audience chanted. He was the hunter, and I assumed he must’ve just entered the arena. A knot formed in my throat. My life had been in danger many times before, from the risks I was forced to take at the mines, and from Sal’s punishments, but nothing like this. For the first time ever, I was prey.



  1. YAAAAY! PRAISE THE LORD! I will find time to research and post anything about the Ancient Rome. Lastly, I can promise that I would always promote your books especially the new releases. Thank you so so so much Ms. Jen!!!!!!!!!!! God bless you! How I wish I could thank you personally. I am really thankful! This is one of the best Christmas gift ever!

    Much love,

  4. Congratulations to all of the winners! 🙂 Mrs. Nielsen, who won the Ascendance Triology giveaway?

      • Okay, thanks 🙂

  5. I won!

  8. Ok Jennifer, I sent you the email!

  9. Congratulations to all you winners! Enjoy the book for the rest of us!

  10. Wow, I can’t believe I won! I just sent you an email with my mailing address. Thank you so much!

  11. Thank you! When do we get them?

  12. OH MY GOSH I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK!!!! That excerpt though *faints dramatically* 😉 You’re my favorite author and have inspired me so much. Every time I read your books I am completely sucked into the world. With the False Prince, I picked it up off the shelf at Barnes and Noble. My grandma was taking me out to get a book and of course I had a HUGE stack that I took to a table and started looking through. Then I came to the False Prince. I WAS LITERALLY HOOKED BY PAGE ONE. And I was in love with Jaron by page 2 hahaha. About five secs after I picked it up I was like, “Grandma, I want this one!!!!!” Anyway, just wanted to let you know how awesome you are and that I’m SOOOO excited for the Mark of the Thief. The excerpts that have been released already are killing me (in a good way 😉 ;P). And sorry this was so long!!!

    • Thanks Brinley – I hope you’ll love MARK OF THE THIEF too!

  13. Congrats to all the winners 🙂 Win or lose, I had a great time and fun with some of the hidden facts about ancient Rome that I have learned from other people in your blog Miss Jen. The excerpt of the book you have given is quite intriguing and makes me think what will happen next to the main protagonist. It makes me feel more excited about your book. By the way Miss Jen Happy Holidays to you and your family! 🙂

  14. I cant believe it!! Im actually getting a signed book! Jennifer you are the best author ever!


  16. Mrs. Nielsen –

    Merry Christmas! Where I live it is Christmas Eve (yay!), and I just wanted to wish you a merry Christmas.
    Also – I’m going to get the Mark of the Thief in February. My parents have purchased books (and so have I) from the King’s English Bookshop. I’d like to get Mark of the Thief autographed. Which bookshop should I get it from – King’s English, or another store?
    Merry Christmas yet again! You’re the best X1000X1000X10000000000 author ever and I so cannot wait for (drumroll please)…
    THE MARK OF THE THIEF! (Applause please.)
    Your N. 1 fan in the whole universe,


    • Thanks, Loreley, and a wonderful Christmas to you as well! If you want Mark of the Thief autographed, the best way is to order from The King’s English.

      • Ok, thank you!
        Merry Christmas yet again!
