Who is the false prince?

“The False Prince” by Jennifer A. Nelson was full of action, adventure and mystery. I gave it five Cardinals because the twists in the book kept me hooked on it to the point that I barely put it down.

At the beginning of the book, a man named Bevin Connor picks up four orphans from different orphanages. Only three lived to hear his plan. The orphan named Sage is always getting himself into trouble, Tobias is the “goody two-shoes” and Rodin is the one that can't be trusted. Throughout the book, Bevin Connor tries to pass one of them off as  Prince Jaron, who is a prince that was thought to have died four years earlier in a pirate attack. Only the highest noblemen of the royal court know that the King and Queen had died and that Prince Jaron would then become king.

    While reading, I constantly asked myself,  “Who will Conner pick to be the future king?” The answer at the end might be surprising, but the book ended on a cliffhanger, and I can’t wait to get the next book in the Ascendance Trilogy, “The Runaway King”.
