Ascendance

Ascendance
(The Second DemonWars Saga #1)
by R.A. Salvatore (2002)
 

Jilseponie Wyndon (Pony) becomes Queen. However unknown to her, the child she thought lost never died. Aydrian was stolen away by the queen of the elves. He is raised by the Elves, then joins with his mother’s enemy to overthrow the Monarchy and install himself as King.


The first of the second trilogy, this is more human centred politics that wouldn’t be out of place in a George RR Martin novel. Not much action, but with a surprising ending.

Nutty Pair

A Pair of Nuts on the Throne
Robot vs Dragons #3
by Simon Haynes (2018)
 

The third and concluding novel.

With Hal in the picture, you can be sure that him and Clunk will meet up. And they do, but fairly late in the story and not as expected.

There are plenty of visual jokes and you can just image the author thinking how they would look in the screen.

It’s a satisfying conclusion to the series, however it does suffer from a few too many plot lines. I do miss when it was just Hal and Clunk vs the universe.
