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.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
