The False Prince (Ascendance Trilogy)
I so often blow through book after book and then eagerly pick up the next book as if my hunger is rarely satisfied, but this was definitely a delightful surprise to read that is guarenteed to satisfy! I really enjoyed the twists and turns Jennifer Nielsen took with the characters and the plot in The False Prince: Book 1 of the Ascendance Trilogy: Book 1 of the Ascendance Trilogy. She took you to a whole other world and kept feeding your interest the entire time. The character development throughout the book of each and every single one of the characters gave me enough to root for some, hate others and feel crest fallen when they made decisions that I wished they hadn't made but knew that if this was real life, the characters would have done the same even still.
We follow quick-witted Sage, an orphan boy who is picked out by nobleman, Connor for a potential "false" Prince along with three other boys that might pass as the missing real Prince Jaron and then to use as a puppet for his own advantage since the royal family has all been murdered besides this once-thought-dead missing Prince. This is a tale of missing princes, unexpected friendships and revelations! This fast-paced, thrilling book is a must have for your kindle or book shelf!
