Synopsis

The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen

In a discontented kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king's long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince Four orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner's motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword's point - he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. As Sage's journey continues, layer upon layer of treachery and deceit unfold, until finally a truth is revealed that proves more dangerous than all of the lies put together.

Reviews

'The False Prince is the best book I’ve read in 2012 thus far, and I absolutely cannot wait for book 2 in the series. Wholeheartedly recommended.' - The Book Smugglers

'If the publishers of The Hunger Games know how to do one thing, it's give us stories filled with drama and danger that we can't put down. Their next must-read trilogy is called The False Prince, and we think you'll devour it the way you did The Hunger Games.' - Seventeen
