Hi everyone! A couple of weeks ago, I finished reading a great book written by Jennifer A Nielsen that I wanted to share with you. It is the first book in The Ascendance Trilogy, and I really enjoyed it! The book is titled The False Prince, which is what really caught my eye. The book had been recommended to me recently, and I thought I should share it with you!
The False Prince is written from the perspective of an orphaned boy named Sage who lives in the kingdom of Carthya. Sage is a tricky boy, good with theft, quick on his feet, and tends to think of only himself. Until one day, he gets bought by a nobleman named Conner, and taken away from his orphanage for good. Little did he know, that he may become a part of a crazy scheme. One that would either save his country, or get those involved……. killed.
Lord Conner takes Sage away to his palace, where he is to compete with four other orphans to impersonate a long lost prince in an attempt to stop a war. The competition between the orphans is fierce, for those who don’t win…….. well, nothing good shall come to them. And who would ever miss an orphan?
Sage faces many challenges, and eventually comes across a question, one that could determine the fate of Carthya; does he really want to become a false prince?
Sage needs to team together with the other boys in order to stop the plan from reaching it’s end and ruining their country. But will they all keep their word? Or will their covers be blown?
This book is a great read, and I highly recommend it! It is the type of book that will forever be known as one you just can’t put down!
Stay tuned for more awesomeness,
