In this first book in a remarkable trilogy, an orphan is forced into a twisted game with deadly stakes.Choose to lie...or choose to die.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.

3.0 #TheAscendanceTrilogy: Fun story, boring everything else...
The Ascendance Trilogy wasn't everything I hoped it would be. I was hoping for an exciting Middle Grade story with well-written characters and a strong plot. What I got was a moderately fun Middle Grade story with boring, flat characters and a predictable, forced plot. The first book was by far...

4.0 The False Prince
I won a copy from Jean Book Nerd.My previous excursions in middle grade books didn’t go well. Not just plots being obvious and stale, but the characters weren’t people, but abstract shadows. None of that is a problem in The False Prince.In the beginning I was sure of where this was going. It felt so...

WOW, great book! I could barely put it down. It is shelved in GR in Children's section, although it is not. It has conspiracies, murders, torture... And that twist!I loved Sage's character, so rebellious and grumpy and clever.Right now I can't write a proper review without giving too many spoilers, ...

3.0 The False Prince
I got this book because I was talking about the reading challenge I'm doing and wanted to know of any good trilogies that I could do on audio (I'm already reading a physical copy book at home and wanted something for my car. Beep Beep!). This trilogy was recommended. I thought it would be awesome! A...

3.0 The False Prince
I will be honest about this book, it was ok, but i didn't get to the very end. I was simply bored. It took forever for the story to develop, and actually get to the point, but sadly by that time I've decided to move on.
