The False Prince

Sage is an orphan living in a far away land. He's doing the best that he can for himself, he's found a place to live at the orphan's home, and he's not above stealing the occasional roast for himself and his fellow orphans to eat. That all changes one day when a man named Conner comes to his orphanage and takes him away. Sage doesn't understand why Conner wants him, and he tries to get away multiple times, but to no avail, he's knocked out, tied up and put into a wagon. When he wakes up, Sage realizes there are 3 other orphan boys in the wagon with him, and he's really confused as to what is happening and why. He does know he needs to escape. and he tries, yet again, but he's unsuccessful. Sage knows he must stop trying to escape when one of the boys is killed in front of the rest of them. Conner tells the remaining 3 boys of the King's family being killed, all except for Prince Jaron, who was presumed killed by pirates 4 years earlier. No one in the land knows that the royal family has been killed and Conner wants to keep it that way long enough to teach one of the orphan boys to be Prince Jaron and install him on the throne. Only one of the boys will be the prince, of course, the other two will most likely be killed. It's up to Sage to stop being so sarcastic and learn to be a real leader before one of the three boys gets hurt.

Wow, this book was amazing! I loved Sage. I really loved how the author keeps you in the dark about who had done certain things in this book, until the very end when secrets are revealed. I loved the characters in this book, Conner, and his servants Mott and Cregan are very believable villains. I loved the ending of this book! I can't wait to read the next book in this series, The Runaway King.

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.
