      • Nic

        • Crispus

    • Thank you, Evangeline! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this book!

      • Finished it a long while back. It was exceedingly good, but it felt…incomplete somehow. 😐 Eh… It’s probably just me (not enough nic/aurelia heh heh), but on the bright side it was AWSOME! Can’t wait for the next series.(Norse?? *GASP*- RUSSIAN?!)

        • Thank you very much Evangeline!

          • I think there should be more between nic and Aurelia if you put another book with nic and Aurelia please put way more kissing or in a next book add more kissing plz

          • Alondra, “The Traitor’s Game” will be out in February 2017. There shall be kissing!

          • I’m in no way verified to tell you what to do or what to write but I loved the mark of a thief trilogy and would love to see another book about what the grandfather and nic and aurelia go through next. Please I’m begging you I would Lowkey buy like every copy ever I love this series so much I’m sad it stopped.

          • Perhaps one day I will make more books in the series. I’m so glad you enjoyed these, though.

      • This book is really good

      • Who does Aurelia choose? You have to tell me!!

        • Have you read Book 3, WRATH OF THE STORM? It should be pretty clear by the end of that book who she chooses!

They make the top of my favorites list, and I’m sure they will stay there forever!

  15. The ending wow………no words

    • Finished the book, thank you for an anther amazing book!

  16. Is there any news on the False Prince Movie? I have to know!

    • No news as of today. But watch the blog in the next week or two (and be aware, the news could be “no news.”)

  17. The book was great, and I loved the ending. Another awesome series! πŸ˜€

  18. I really wish you could write a book that’s just about Nic and Aurelia!

    • That’d be cool, Silver, I agree! πŸ’œ

    • That would be amazing! Can you please write a book just about them? Please?!!?!?

      • Perhaps one day, Jackie. We’ll see…


  19. Hi I was just wondering if the false prince is going to be a movie or not?

    • Hmm, I dunno, but I hope to have another update next week. Might be another “no update” update, but my fingers, as always, are crossed!

  20. I have had a crazy couple of weeks so I wasn’t able to read it like I wanted to, but I finished Wrath of the Storm!!! It was so good! I love the ending!! It’s the end of another great book by my favorite author! Can’t wait to hear news about upcoming books and The False Prince movie!

    P.S. I’ve been learning French and I suggested the French version of The False Prince as a purchase. So hopefully they will get it and I can read Le Faux Prince for the first time and The False Prince for the eighth time!! (Actually I’m not really sure how many times I have read The False Prince, The Runaway King, and The Shadow Throne. But I’m sure it’s been at least five times.)

    • Thank you very much, Jamie. And I hope you’ll be able to get a copy of Le Faux Prince too!

  21. will there be a movie for the false prince!!!!!!!!I really really want to know.Its pretty much my favorites book!!!!!!!

    • I’m sorry, I don’t have an answer for you yet, but watch my blog. I hope to get more information soon.

  22. I read it it is so amazing you need to make another book in that series I really want to read another one in that series I love it!!

    • Thanks very much, Mackenzi! Perhaps one day I’ll add to this series.

  23. wrath of the storm was my favorite ever are you writing any more of that series please let me know.

    • Hi Isaac – thanks for your kind words. I don’t currently have plans to write more of this series, but I am always writing, so I hope I’ll be able to create more stories for you to enjoy.

  24. Please make a fourth book. I want to know what happens while they are in Britannia. Their Wedding and Crispus Wedding. Would be awesome!

    • Perhaps one day, Ortanus – there would be some cool scenes, I’m sure.

  25. Is the first line of The Wrath of the Storm supposed to kind of be a play-off of the first line of The False Prince?

    • Hmm…I suppose you could make that comparison!

      • Larissa,
        I was thinking the same exact thing πŸ™‚

        Oh and Mrs. Nielsen, do you have any updates on The False Prince movie?

  26. I just finished reading wrath of the storm! I loved the ending and loved the book! I am now rereading the whole series again. I love all the characters and the setting! You are such an amazing writer! Your awesome!

  27. OH MY GOSH!!!!! I finished reading Wrath of the Storm and I am blown away. I was on the edge of my seat during the entire book and I couldn’t put it down. I have never cried that hard when reading a book. I ending was amazing and so unique. I loved everything about the book. The amount of sacrifice Nic was going to give was a sign of how much courage and bravery he had. Love, love, love this book! Thank you Mrs. Nielsen for this wonderful series!

    • Thank you, Faith – I’m so glad you enjoyed it! That’s a book I’m very proud of, so your kind words mean a lot to me.

    • Hey, blah blah don’t spoil it haven’t read it yet, blah blah, didn’t see anything about a sacrifice, blah blah, happy thoughts… but I will read it soon don’t worry

  28. I know these comments are for the Wrath of the Storm book, but i just finished the Acendance trilogy and had to go SOMEWHERE to fangirl. Jennifer Nielson, i found your series absolutely stunning and beautiful and- ACK THERE ARE LIKE NO WORDS! I laughed so hard i fell out of my chair when i saw hoe Jaron yet again managed to wiggle out of his impossible situation. I have to admit, i literally thought he was a goner for a second there; i mean he’s done some pretty crazy things but i had no idea… anyway, i wanted to say thanks for writing one of my all time favourite book series ever. I wish you the best of success in your future works. I also hope that one day in gym class, when my teacher tells me to start running because we are doing a fitness test, i can stand with my head held high and say ‘I never run!’ and hopefully someone will get the reference πŸ™‚

    • Ha – well I definitely got the reference! Thanks so much for your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    I do have a few questions though……
    1.Is there going to be an extra book for Aurelia and Nic?
    2.Is there going to be movie for The false Prince?It was pretty much the best series i’v ever read and I really hope there will be one

    • Hi Stosh – thanks for reading. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
      1. I never say never to the idea of a next book, but at this point, my attention is focused on other projects.
      2. I wish I could give you an answer to this question right now. Stay tuned…

      • Please make a movie out of Mark of the Thief, it would be my dream to watch it, well… my dream is to star in it, but that’s a different story for a different time

        • My fingers are crossed for this to happen too. Perhaps one day, Nicolas!

  30. I love your books and I think that this series should never end, but if it does have to come to that, make a run off of in the future or something, love your books I’ve been waiting 5 months for this , THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, oh and by the way, my name is Nicolas, pretty ironic because it is my favorite series, and I star it!!!!

    • Awesome that you’re also Nicolas – same spelling! And I’m glad that you love this series. So do I!

  31. Oh and one more thing, when you end the series can you end it on book 4 or 7, these are my favorite numbers, and I know your buisy and I get it if you can’t do it, but it’s just a request, one more thing, it’s a long shot and kinda selfish and stuff but I know that this is a definite no, but can you include a background character named Dylan, it’s my middle name and I thought it would be a good name for anyone in the upcoming books πŸ˜‰

    • That’s a great suggestion. Dylan isn’t the most Roman name ever, but perhaps in a future series! Thanks, Nicolas!

  32. Did not even know the other two books were out, whelp got to get reading!

  33. I got the book for my birthdy a month ago. I loved the ending! I almost cried when it said Nick had died. Then I almost cried in joy when he was alive. I love your books! Please don’t stop writing.

  34. You have to make movies about these books

    • Well, I’m fine with that. I just need a major motion picture studio to agree with us! πŸ˜‰

  35. Such a FANTASTIC series!! You are, by far, one of my favorite authors!! Thank you for keeping your books exciting, yet innocent enough for young readers. I teach 6th grade and love having your books to recommend to my students. They seem to fight over who gets to borrow them from me first, and they race to see who can finish them first! It’s hard for me to stay ahead of them! Can’t wait for the next series!

    • Wow, thank you very much, Marnie. I’m honored that my books have a place with your students. Please give them my best wishes!
