As a long-time reader of YA fiction, I found there was a certain level of predictability to the book, which was definitely its major weakness, and yet it was still quite good. Essentially, it is a classic plot involving a look-alike taking on a royal role, but Nielsen does definitely put her own spin on things. The characters are fairly well-written and developed, particularly for the first part of a trilogy, and the plot was solid enough to keep my interest. I feel as though it could be stronger, but I look forward to reading the other books in the trilogy at some point to see how things developed. ( )

A fun, quick read. Sage is an orphan boy who is picked up off the streets by a nobleman hoping to make him into the perfect impostor of a long-lost prince. As luck would have it, Sage has a few tricks up his own sleeve! A fun book for the weekend. ( )

In a faraway land, civil war is brewing. To unify his kingdom's divided people, a nobleman named Connor devises a cunning plan to place an impersonator of the king's long-lost son on the throne. Four orphans are forced to compete for the role, including a defiant and clever boy named Sage. Sage knows Connor'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 moves from a rundown orphanage to Connor's sumptuous palace, layer upon layer of duplicity and deceit unfold, until finally, a truth is revealed that may very well prove more dangerous than all of the lies taken together.

While, as usual, I was able to pick out the twist almost from the start, I loved this. The intrigue makes for a highly entertaining listen, and Sage's personality keeps the reader coming back. ( )

This book was flat out amazing! You never know what is going to happen. It's funny, interesting, and exciting! You'll never want to put it down. 5Q5P I'd recommend this book for high school students. I chose to read this book because the cover looked really intriguing. AbigailH

Book description
THE FALSE PRINCE is the thrilling first book in a brand-new trilogy filled with danger and deceit and hidden identities that will have readers rushing breathlessly to the end.

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.
