The False Prince

23 May

The False Prince written by Jennifer A. Neilsen is an exciting new book, the first in a trilogy ( The Ascendance Trilogy), that stars characters so well written, it feels like you know them in real-life.  The book is described by Booklist as a action-oriented fantasy, but it’s less fantasy and much more action.  There isn’t any magic, made up animals, or wizards, but it is packed with pirates, a plot to overthrow a kingdom, and an orphan named Sage who has a secret all his own.

When a nobleman, Connor, begins gathering a few boys from orphanages around the country, he has a plan to prevent civil war and to become more powerful, but there is always another layer to the story, which keeps it interesting and very fast-paced.

This is a great story for both boys and girls in older elementary school and middle school.  With a fast-paced, action plot and characters that are so life-like you might expect to meet them on the street – this is a great book to start off summer vacation!  Scholastic has a great book trailer and an “Are You the False Prince?” quiz.
