Det handler den om:
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.

Min mening:
Jeg gik i gang med at læse denne i håb om at få en god fantasy bog der kunne opsluge mig. Det fik jeg.

Der er ikke nogen magiske elementer med i historien, men den foregår i et middelalderligt univers og Jennifer A. Nielsen skriver virkelig godt. Selv om der ikke var nogle overraskelser i plottet og jeg havde regnet slutningen ud, så nød jeg hele bogen og ærgrede mig over at jeg ikke havde næste bog da denne var slut.

Jeg kunne rigtig godt lide Sage og Conner var skurken, dog var han ikke rendyrket skurk, for jeg kunne godt følge hans tankegang, i hvert fald engang i mellem. Persongalleriet var helt fantastisk, der var så mange forskellige typer mennesker med, og de virkede alle sammen virkelige.

Jeg glæder mig til at læse videre og se hvordan denne trilogi udvikler sig!
