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. Three 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.

    This book is so cool to listen to. I love it so much but there is no mystery and suspense.

  • Lisa Clark

    Lovely story and I was so excited it's part of a trilogy.

  • Mark Gulfan

    A light read/listen that keeps the story fluid and interesting. I maybe biased as swordfights or that certain era arouses my interest. Im looking forward to enjoy the next book. I hope to see it in the big screen.

    This was a great read. I liked the use of devils for god(s). I hope the next two of the trilogy reads as well!

    The book is really good I love how it's from the first person of the child. I loved something about it but I'm not going to say anything to ruin the story. It's awesome. The narrator does a fantastic job of telling the story and differentiating the different characters with different voices that really make the story come alive. I'm excited to hear the rest of the stories in this trilogy and even more excited to see that they have the same narrator for the second story; I've listened to a few series's that don't use the same narrator and there's some better ones and some worse ones, but the worst part is when you get "connected" to one and then have to listen to a different one.
