Waiting On Wednesday

The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen
 
Goodreads Summary:
 
A kingdom teetering on the brink of destruction. A king gone missing. Who will survive? Find out in the highly anticipated sequel to Jennifer A. Nielsen's blockbuster THE FALSE PRINCE!

Just weeks after Jaron has taken the throne, an assassination attempt forces him into a deadly situation. Rumors of a coming war are winding their way between the castle walls, and Jaron feels the pressure quietly mounting within Carthya. Soon, it becomes clear that deserting the kingdom may be his only hope of saving it. But the further Jaron is forced to run from his identity, the more he wonders if it is possible to go too far. Will he ever be able to return home again? Or will he have to sacrifice his own life in order to save his kingdom?

The stunning second installment of The Ascendance Trilogy takes readers on a roller-coaster ride of treason and murder, thrills and peril, as they journey with the Runaway King!
 
My Thoughts:
 
I literally just finished reading the first novel in this series, The False Prince, a couple of minutes ago. After being stunned by the intricate storyline Jennifer has managed to weave, I was beyond giddy when I saw that the next installment of the series already had a set release date! Not too crazy about the cover, but the motto/sentence has completely reeled me in! He's gonna flee the throne!? What? How? Why?! :O I need to get my hands on this book right now!
