Monday, March 16, 2015
Why I chose this book:
I've heard much about this book from other bloggers. though I never knew much about it because I would only skim their reviews, I knew it was fantasy. If it's a good fantasy book, I have to at least try it. And I am so glad I did.

Synopsis:
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. (Goodreads)
