This book had me gripped the whole way! It is about an orphan boy called Sage who is one day called to compete in a challenge of who will be the next prince. A nobleman named Conner Bevin is responsible for this; he gathers four boys that vaguely resemble the lost Prince Jaron. The boy who can impersonate Jaron the best becomes King. Everyone else…dies. The further this story gets, the more stressful the competition becomes. There are many lies and deceiving tricks put into play throughout this book, but near the end, a truth is revealed that proves more surprising than all the lies and tricks put together! I suggest this book for ages 9-14, for boys and girls. This is just the first part of a great trilogy that you will absolutely love.
