Publisher Description

In a discontent 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. But Sage's rivals have their own agendas as well.

As Sage moves from a rundown orphanage to Conner's sumptuous palace, layer upon layer of treachery and deceit unfold, until finally, a truth is revealed that, in the end, may very well prove more dangerous than all of the lies taken together.

An extraordinary adventure filled with danger and action, lies and deadly truths that will have readers clinging to the edge of their seats.

Owl & dragon & rodent lover ,

Amazing!

This is one of the best books I've ever read, and since I spend most of my time reading, that's saying something. It's clever, fun, mysterious, and beautiful. With a hidden identity, a confusing touch of romance, and a LOT of lies, this book is well worth the read.

8 Years still love it

I first read this book in sixth grade, eight years ago. I read it three times before it was due back in the library and at that point I wanted to buy it. I keep rereading it; I’m doing so now (from age 12 to age 20) and finally realized why I love the book so much. My first time reading the book, the plot progresses until a flashback chapter that shocked me. I actually didn’t see that twist coming, which is rare for me. So to be stunned, enticed, and desiring more was a novel experience I don’t forget.
