The Forsaken Throne (Kingfountain Book 6) Kindle Edition
The thrilling conclusion to the million-copy, Wall Street Journal bestselling Kingfountain series from Jeff Wheeler.
A devastating disaster has left the Forbidden Court in ashes, its fountains destroyed, and its magic at risk. It was destined as the site of Trynne Kiskaddon’s coronation as empress. Now, all Trynne can imagine is the roar of flames, the cries of Gahalatine’s people, and the smell of cinders in a city gone dark. Tragic as the threat to Kingfountain is, it’s nowhere near as foul as the treachery posed by Morwenna. Saboteur, conspirator, and full-blood sister of the king, she is prepared to set forth a wave of destruction that will eliminate everything that stands between her and possession of the throne.
But Trynne has her weapons, too—her magic, her resilience, her skills at intrigue, and especially, Fallon. The man who once swore his allegiance to Morwenna now stands by Trynne’s side as they venture into the unknown to protect those they love, reunite with a family scattered by diabolical forces, and safeguard a kingdom…as well as the destiny the Fountain has for each of them.

Q - Are there a lot of typos/misspellings, grammatical errors or other editing failures?
A – No.
To give a feel for the editing, and the style and flow of this work, I am posting a brief excerpt below.
‘…She clung to the bit of hope dangling in front of her. He was conflicted. The Wizrs had discovered a way to manipulate him with their powers. Well, that would not work with her nearby. Rising to her feet, she wondered how to greet him. They had shared a kiss at their marriage. Several, in fact, but they had all been tame kisses of brotherly affection. Nothing like the kiss Fallon had given her atop the tower at Dundrennan. If they overcame this obstacle, she was convinced their relationship would change with time, that passion would grow.
“So you arrived three days ago?” she said, at a loss for words. “By ship?”
“Indeed,” he answered coldly.
She glanced around the room. Lord Amrein stood at the table with the king. Genevieve was there, but not the young princess. The queen looked stern and serious. She was studying Gahalatine with a slight frown of disapproval.
“I thought you would come to Ploemeur,” she said, still feeling the awkwardness of the moment. She wished to be alone with him, not in a crowded room full of witnesses. He looked at her incredulously. “How could I risk that?” he said with a curt laugh. “After what you did to my fleet?” His anger was still evident but under control. “None of my crews dare enter your waters, my lady.” The scene was becoming more befouled by the moment. “Why did you come, then?” she challenged.
“King Sunilik convinced me,” Gahalatine answered. “And by my troth, we must work out some arrangement. Some truce, if you will. The Mandaryn insist I cannot trust you, but Sunilik has advised me to hear your side. To listen patiently to your explanations.” He swallowed, looking down for a moment before meeting her eyes again. “I knew this would be painful. For us both. But I am determined to endure it. I believe that I wed myself to you in a cunning ploy. I do not see how the evidence can be interpreted differently, but I will listen to you. The Mandaryn have agreed to these conditions. Apparently I did not require enough stipulations or conditions last time.” His barbed words stung her.
“I will gladly justify myself. I look forward to the opportunity,” Trynne said. She wanted to throttle the Wizrs who had corrupted his mind and his feelings.
“Very well. My conditions are as follows. We will…’
Wheeler, Jeff. The Forsaken Throne (The Kingfountain Series Book 6) (pp. 36-37). 47North. Kindle Edition.
Four and a half stars if possible. Since it isn’t, I’m rounding down to four.
Four stars out of five.
Comments regarding your opinion of this book or of my review, whether favorable or unfavorable, are always welcome. If you buy the book based on my review and become disappointed, especially, I do want to know that and I want to understand how I can improve as a book reviewer. Just please be polite.
Trynne has been faithful in her duties as the daughter of Owen Kiskaddon and his wife Sinia throughout her young life as a 'fountain blessed'. She is the king's protecor, a valiant knight, and a brave warrior who fights with honor for her king and the kingdom. She is the victim of a cruel attempt by a former friend to ruin her life, and she must find her way through all the pitfalls that come as a result of this betrayal. She finds herself unjustly accused of treason and must try to find the answers that can save her kingdom and restore her family.
Mr. Wheeler has a way of writing the characters in his stories to feel real and you find yourself caring about them. They have their faults and quirks, and you never know what the next page will bring.
I couldn't wait to see what happened as I was reading the story, but dreaded getting to the last page because that meant the adventure would be over. So much fun to read!
Thanks to this author for another great and entertaining story!
The Kingfountation Series cannot trump my favorite Wheeler Muirwood Trilogy (2013) however it has its own place in my Kindle :) It does feel like the author is ready for a TV (Netflix?) adaptation of this series, it reads like one.

Now that I have finished the series I am left wanting more. But isn't that how your supposed to feel when you've truly enjoyed something? I will have to use my imagination and continue the story of Trynne and Fallon in my own way, but if more books are written in this saga I will be waiting with baited breath to read them
There are also far too many loose ends in the book that are unanswered again presumably to make you read another set of books, seems a bit money grabbing to me but that's only my opinion.
I couldn't wait for the final elements of Trynne's story come together just as with her father in the first Kingsfountain3 - 3 days, some delayed train travel/late night reading and we're all done already. The links to the Mirrowen/Muirwood stories brought on a few flashbacks (worth a pause to read those between 3 & 4 if you haven't already) and I've only one "complaint" - now what ?
(The Poisoner's Enemy in January (prequel) ... but hopefully more worlds in the future too)
