    One thought on “The False Prince”

    1. The False Prince is THAT book I stayed up way too late in order to finish itd I m seriously considering throwing all notion of a sleep schedule out the window and rereading the whole book right now Originally posted at Small ReviewI call dibs on Sage seriously ladies don t underestimate me cause I m small I ll fight dirty I knew this was going to be a Special Shelf book as soon as I heard Sage s voice narrating Really, the story could have been downright awful it isn t and I still would have Spe [...]

    2. 3.5 Here s to all the clever little shits The only thing I knew about this book was that its MC was a charming clever thief and not much else I didn t even know it was middle grade until after my purchase which I didn t mind as long as the story and characters were engaging and immersive.This exciting adventure is told from the point of view of Sage, a fifteen year old orphan and gifted sneak thief who has a wry yet upbeat outlook on life He immediately gains reader sympathy despite his seemingl [...]

    3. This book makes me want to put on my blandest Mr Darcy voice and declare it tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt me This book is fine I think many of you will notice its exercise brightened eyes and charming irreverence and fall for it But for me, it was just okay If you ve read any amount of young adult fantasy, you probably know where this book is heading just from reading the synopsis or hell, even the title I had a lot of hope that this book would go in an unexpected direction or bring [...]

    4. This was such a fun quick read I couldn t put it down, I just had to keep reading I loved the main character and the way he not only kept secrets from other characters but from us as readers And the dialogue in this book was phenomenal I can t wait to pick up the next one and plan to do it very soon

    5. The following two paragraphs were going to be my review before I reached the turning point of the story In fairness to the book, I made this fatal mistake of reading another fantasy series after Harry Potter and poor book suffered from my biases So to make it clear, had I read the book at a different time, I would have probably loved it but forgive me if for the entire reading all I could think about was how badly I miss Harry Potter.I do appreciate the short chapters and that overall, it was a [...]

    6. Now I remember why I gave this book 5 stars and it had me hooked just like the first time I love this series so much Listen, this book is so good it got my brother, who HATES to read, to freaking read.I was going into my room and my brother was sitting on the bed reading this book and I was screaming for ten minutes straight And my mom was standing there with her jaw dropped Listen, this book is really good It got someone who hates to read into reading It made me want to reread this book And I r [...]

    7. Since there are quite a number of similarities of both plot and characterization, I can t help but compare The False Prince to The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner But unlike Gen who is one of my all time fave book characters , Sage the male protagonist in this book is sadly lacking in depth and not nearly as much fun.Or it could simply be that I m not the target reader obviously, as the protagonists and sups were mostly young teenagers who behaved in a manner that made suspension of disbelief near [...]

    8. Sick Latamer, hot headed Sage, erudite Tobias and strong Roden have one thing in common a physical similarity to the 4 year lost and probably dead Prince Jaron of the Kingdom of Carthya With the poisoned death of the royal family, the kingdom is at the brink of an upheaval and the so called patriot nobleman Conner sees this as a perfect opportunity to bring forward the lost Prince Thus, it all comes down to the frail shoulders of 15 year old orphans who are literally in a do or die situation The [...]

    10. 4.5 STARSWHAT THE SWEET HELL WAS THIS I went into this book with absolutely no expectations thank you, inexistent hype and came out gasping and fangirling and hyperventilating, which is the absolute best way to experience a book The three pillars of The False Prince In my opinion, the main character, Sage, is this book s strongest asset He thieves and rebels He s intelligent and feisty but kind hearted And he s a bomb of reckless plans, snappy retorts and defiance ready to detonate In short, he [...]

    11. Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestCarthya is a kingdom on the brink of war The royal family is dead The youngest son, Jaron, is missing, presumed dead A group of regents all have their eye on the vacant throne, and if one of them seizes power, it s likely that the entire kingdom will be plunged into ruin But one nobleman named Conner has a plan He s rounded up a group of four orphan boys Latamer, Roden, Tobias, and Sage that all have the look of Jaron His plan is to groom them, train them, and [...]

    12. If we can weed out your bad manners and defiant nature, I suspect you could convince the nobles that you are him If you weed those out, then there s nothing left of me In the interests of the future readers I m nearing the end of The Runaway King now, the second book in the trilogy, and as far as I can tell so far, The False Prince works perfectly, probably even better, as a standalone Therefore, if you d like to give this world a chance but you re not sure you want to go through all three books [...]

    13. Reviewed by Rabid ReadsTHE FALSE PRINCE by Jennifer Nielsen is in my opinion exactly what juvenile fiction middle grade fantasy is supposed to be.Nimble fingered orphans who proactively take measures to fill their bellies Check.Evil masterminds plotting to overthrow a kingdom Also, check.A Big Secret that isn t easily identifiable b c super sneaky use of ambiguity CHECK.And all of that is in addition to the highly entertaining snark that does not stop SNARK, I love it.Meet Sage.Sage is all thing [...]

    14. HOLLA JUST AS AMAZING THE SECOND TIME AROUND Except possibly even better because now I know what details to look for The experience was so much vivid Anyone who s read this knows EXACTLY what I m talking about If you haven t read this, then prepare yourself for a recommendation comin atchu The following is my old review Spoilers are 100% marked It s a fangirly review Read it ___________________________________________________________Congratulations book You just earned yourself a position on th [...]

    15. Shut the front door that ending was fantasticI did not see any of that coming The last 1 4 of that book was just simply unreal I also was impressed how the author was able to stuff so much material into a relatively short novel Mind you it is part one of a trilogy I simply cannot say enough about this book I loved the characters, the plot was fantastic and the twists and turns at the end just blew my mind Well done One of the best books I ve read in awhile

    16. I don t know how exactly to describe what I felt about this book but I m certain that this one has captured my attention and my heart from the moment I turned the first page, til the last It was like,I had been magnetized by this book and couldn t let it out of my grip can t stay away from it,I even had to hold my bladder Lol This is a story of a 14 year old orphan boy named SAGE, the protagonist here,who is so clever,strong,and with a witty sharp tongue who was bought by a royal regent named Be [...]

    17. 4.5 starsHsgdkwgfkcgdghxcgdjsdchalhcudulchucuawhshdddpffjagffwfYes guys, Alafiya is speechless I haven t got any witty, funny or sarcastic things to say I haven t got any insults to throw I don t even have good humour for praising this one Because I AM FREAKING SPEECHLESS And well, very serious Serious about how awesome this book is Serious about how it held me in it s grip from the first moment to the last word Serious about how embarrassingly in love with fifteen year old Sage I am I bow to Sa [...]

    18. If the first chapter is any indicator, this book is great Read the sample on a train ride, and let s just say, the description is great, it starts off with action and a touch of mystery, and I totally love the main character Moving this way up on my to read list.

    19. There is no way you can read The False Prince, and not have the inevitable comparisons to Megan Whalen Turner s The Thief crop up Both are stories of young men, obscure nobodies charged with a greater purpose, subject to distrust and contempt and ridicule, involved in complicated matters far above their station However, The Thief is, without doubt, the better man, so to speak Unlike Gen, Sage, the protagonist of this story, is neither subtle, nor particularly clever And neither is the story as a [...]

    20. Warning This is a middle grade readerNot that there s anything wrong with thatI m mentioning the MGR thing, because I don t want someone to look at my four star review, and think this is a four star review for an adult book Or even a young adult book.See, I actually didn t realize I was picking up a middle grade reader, because it was classified as fantasy in my digital library Still, no harm done, since I m always on the lookout for something the kids might like.I gotta say, I was pretty impres [...]

    21. This review can also be found on Reading Between ClassesCover Impressions The cover doesn t stand out as much as I would like It is simple and clean and I do like the gold crown and lettering on a blue background The Gist As an orphan running the streets of Carchar, Sage has learned to depend on his quick wits and quicker mouth to survive When he finds himself one of four boys bought by a wealthy nobleman with a dastardly plan to gain control of the throne, Sage must use every trick at his dispo [...]

    22. I don t want power or wealth, Conner I want to stay alive SageSurprise, surprise It s been a while since I ve read a middle grade book Heck, it is a truth universally acknowledged that YA books have dominated my TBR for the past decade With that in mind, I am very pleased to critique this unique, wonderful, and gripping novel.The False Prince is the story of a 14 year old orphan named Sage, who lives in Carthya, a kingdom on the brink of civil war Unlike most of the kids his age, Sage has a very [...]

    23. Seems like I can t say no to a buddy read with my pals at Buddies Books and Baubles What s another book tossed onto the pile Short review cuz I m so behind on them.Sage is a classic rapscallion, I don t get to use that word enough, I mean when we meet him he is running through the city trying to keep a hold of a slippery roast he just stole The kid has a quick tongue that always seems to get him into as much trouble as it gets him out of and he seems to have a little problem gift with sticky fin [...]

    24. This book was such a treat to read and I am so glad I started 2015 with it I really enjoyed the characters and I just had a lot of fun while reading it Although this book is located in the YA section in Barnes Noble, I definitely think it has a middle grade feel to it I think some readers will have problems with the lack of world building and the novel being rather predictable, but I was enjoying myself so much while reading it that these things didn t matter to me Great characters, great dialog [...]

    25. You don t believe it s possible Just because it s possible doesn t mean it s wise Witch arched eyebrows, Conner said, And you claim to have this wisdom I claim to have nothing, sir Before diving into my review, I should probably mention that I don t really like middle grade fiction It s one of those genres I hardly reach for, because I often find it boring and unrelatable, but since I like to read a variety of different genres, I still read it from time to time Therefore, yes, this is a mostly p [...]

    26. This book was so much fun It would probably be my number one recommendation for fantasy lovers to get out of a reading slump So fast paced and easy to read and get into with one of the best protagonists ever I loved every second of it.RTC.

    27. Rating 2.5 Stars In all honesty,The False Princecontains nothing within it to warranty such a low rating its writing is easy to read, its pace is swift, and the plot is a page turner In fact, to many readers,The False Princewill no doubt be a breath of fresh air something new, unique, and original in the genre of fantasy However, to me and I m sure numerous other older readers ,The False Princeis nothing but a disappointing rip off of Megan Whalen Turner sThe Queen s ThiefSeries.When Sage, gifte [...]

    28. 2 predictable, dull, unoriginal stars First of all this is not a YA book This is a children s book I would have found this relatively interesting from the ages of 6 to 9 but not much beyond As an adult reading this I was bored, irritated and kept checking back at the ratings to see why this book s average is over 4 This is a mish mash of fairy tales put together in a simplistic and convenient way I guessed each and every maneuver and plot device and rather than being a rip roaring adventure yarn [...]

    29. All right It is almost midnight and this is when I write my finest reviews oh stop laughing so I shall write the galumptious how can galumptious not be a word I feel affronted well, it is a word now hmph review that The False Prince deserves because let me tell you this, the book is pretty freaking fantastic Okay, before I go forth with this review, let me tell you that it is Finals time and I am rather batty battier during these times so the following review maybe be interspersed with absolute [...]
