3 orphans get the chance of a lifetime to become prince. The king, queen and crown prince of Carthya have been poisoned. The throne is there for the taking. Regent Connor has an idea. Price Jaron, the kings second son, is presumed dead from a pirate attack some years ago. Connor plans to find a look alike and install him as the long lost son of the king. Connor finds three boys who look like Prince Jaron and trains then to be prince.
But only one boy can be prince. The others will disappear after Connor has made his choice. One of the boys is Sage, a brash pickpocket who has neither an interest in dying or being prince. He is the most likely candidate but he dislikes the idea. Maybe, because he has something to hide.
This book was fantastic. Funny, witty and full of surprises. I loved Sage, who was always ready to steal the watch off someone's hand while smiling. There can't be too many good things said about this book. Simple. Read It. Check it out!
