the false prince by jennifer a. nielsen
Summary: The country of Carthya is on the brink of a dangerous civil war.  A man named Connor has a plan to save the country.  To do so, he must find someone to impersonate the long-lost prince.  Sage is one of the orphan boys chosen to compete in a lethal battle to earn the place as the imposter.  His life is at stake, whether he wins or loses.

Thoughts:  The False Prince is an action-packed, highly entertaining adventure.  Sage is a delightful character – smart, snarky, and fearless.  I liked him immediately as well as many of the others in the interesting cast of characters.  The story is full of political intrigue, suspense, and action.  It’s thoroughly enthralling and the perfect start to a new trilogy.  And if you’re a fan of audiobooks, this is a perfect addition to your audio library.
