The Shattered Castle is RELEASED! // Trivia Time With Issabelle!

The answer rarely includes the word “great”, unless the word to follow is “fool,” though I have also heard “disappointment,” “frustration,” and “chance that he’ll get us all killed.”

There are other answers, of course. “He was born to cause trouble…”

Why am I even putting these links in? – I hate putting in links. Well, today’s the exception because The Shattered Castle just came out!

Today, I get to see how well I know this series! Issabelle gave me some trivia questions that I will answer in this post and you can see her answers to my questions on her blog HERE! I will warn you now, you will be chuckling a bit. For some reason, I had the idea in my mind that we would get to use the books to help answer the questions but now I’m wondering WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS I THINKING? So yes, I’m SOOO sorry Issa for giving you impossible questions to answer. XD In my defense, it was early in the morning when I wrote those questions. XP Y’all better go check that out because it’s hilarious. AND Issabelle got a lot of them right!!!!!! GO CHECK THAT OUT!!!

Now, are y’all ready??? First, let’s thank Issabelle for being such an amazing friend and not giving me super hard questions. XD But even then, I’m probably going to fail ’cause I haven’t read the first three books in like a year. Or more. I know I’ve reread The Captive Kingdom lately, so those themed questions are going to be a breeze. Other than that, I’m going to fail. *ahem*

#1 What is the full name of the Avenian boy soldier in The Shadow Throne?

There was an Avenian soldier dude in The Shadow Throne? *sighs* There’s no way I’m making this out alive. I feel like it’s that one guy who Sage persuaded to help him? Aaah, I don’t know. Gah. This is going to bug me.

#2 Finish this line: “Carthya’s not my country,” I said, reaching for the door. “Frankly…”

Frankly… I hope Avenia destroys it!

#3 What are Carthya’s national colors?

Blue and gold!

#4 In which story(ies) does the character Serena appear?

In which novels? I believe the second book, The Runaway King but I could be wrong.

#5 List three of the pirates’ names mentioned in The Runaway King.

I know the name of the guy Sage nicknames in The Captive Kingdom if you wanted to know that! XD Hmm, let me think real hard. Teagut. That’s the only pirate I can remember since he cracks me up.

#6 Who tripped Sage when he was running away from the meat butcher in The False Prince?

Only the best character in the entire series… *cough* Mott *cough*

#7 In what year was The False Prince released?

2011? Somewhere in that area.

#8 What is the name of the town that Sage’s orphanage was in? And what is the name of the town where Imogen’s mother lives?

Carchar? I’m 99.9% sure that’s right. But I could be 0.01% wrong. And for where Imogen’s mother lives, I don’t know. I vaguely remember hearing about it but I can’t remember. XD

#9 True or false: The name of Jane Strick’s ship was the Red Serpent.


#10 (Bonus question! Not in the books but confirmed by Jennifer Nielsen.) What was the name of the pirate king before Devlin?

No idea. Hmm, now I’m curious! I need to look this up!

Before we end this celebration post, I just had to put in a link to some fun fangirl stuff for all the fans! When I found all these videos, songs, comics, fan fictions, and art, I was BLOWN AWAY. THEY ARE ALL SOOOOOO AMAZING!!!! Click HERE for the link that takes you to Jennifer Nielsen’s site!!

Make sure to check out Teen Writers’ Nook for their celebration post TODAY!!!!

Now for y’all TFP fans: If you could have any character as a best friend, who would it be? Oooh and why? Would you enjoy living in Carthya? Who’s your least favorite character and why?

  1. Oh, man, girl, I should’ve gone easier on you. XD I think we both roasted each other. Okay, it’s fair and square now. (but you get an A+ too for effort!!!! 🙂 ) Next time, we quiz each other, we should both be allowed to look into one of the books, so we’d have to choose wisely which book to pick. XD But I’m just glad to know I ain’t the only one who has a hard time with these false prince trivia. ;P

    ANYWAY I CANNOT BELIEVE THE SHATTERED CASTLE HAS RELEASED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *squeals and jumps up and down and doesn’t know what else to do except just squeal and scream and be so utterly excited* Now if I could just get my hands on a copy…

    If I could have any character as a friend it’d be Sage hand down. I mean, just think of all the mischief we could get into together…. hehehehehe. XD Plus, he always makes me laugh, and I like laughing! 😉 YES I WOULD 100% LOVE TO LIVE IN CARTHYA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ugh, Cregan without a doubt. That guy is INTOLERABLE. *shudders*

    THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH, Alexa, for doing this countdown with me. I have enjoyed every second of it, and it has been such a blast!!!!!!!!!
    AND THANK YOU TFP fans for joining us!!!!! <333

    *spoilers below*

    Love Live Jaron the Ascendant!!!! 😉


  2. I feel like Fink and I would be best buds if I lived in Carthya. Why? Because we’re both sassy troublemakers. 😉 Yep, we’d be pranking Roden and Tobias All. The. Time.
    UM HECK YEAH I would enjoy living in Carthya! I’ve always wanted to live somewhere like that…
    LEAST favorite… ummmmm all the bad guys? XD


    • I am SO sorry I’m just getting to this comment! For some reason, they got buried in my pending section and I completely forgot. XD Unfortunately, it is her last book in the series and I’m SOOOO devasted!! The amazing series is coming to an end!! 😥 Oh, thank you!!!!! You might be the only one that thinks that way. XD I’m sure you would’ve done an amazing job!! Thanks so much for stopping by, Marie!! Have an amazing day!!!!


  3. You did fantastic on the trivia, Alexa!!!!!!!!!! Great answers!!!! “Only the best character in the entire series… *cough* Mott *cough*” — I love this; it’s so true!!!!!

    “#10 (Bonus question! Not in the books but confirmed by Jennifer Nielsen.) What was the name of the pirate king before Devlin?” I’ll go ahead and say the answer to this one for ya.😉 His name was Troger.

    I would be best friends with MOTT!!! 100% He’s the best character ever!!!!!! Also, I feel like Amarinda and I would be great friends! 😉 Ooh, yes, I would definitely enjoy living in Carthya because it has such a great king!! *wink wink* And my least favorite character would be Cregan. *shudders* I do not like that guy.
