Staff Reviews


This book is the first in a trilogy and it will knock your socks off.

If I have anything to do with it, this tale of a regent plotting to put a false prince on the throne and choosing his candidate from among the country’s orphanages will be the next Harry Potter.

No wizardry, but a fantasy nonetheless! Girl, boys, young, old. A must-read!

“Led by the intimidating but brilliant Connor, four orphans are forced to compete for the essential role in a treasonous plot -- that of impersonating the long-disappeared Prince Jaron of Carthya. Set in the Middle Ages, this tale invites readers to follow 15-year-old Sage, a defiant and witty orphan, through a twisted, dangerous, and all-consuming journey that, if unsuccessful, will result in his death. Full of suspense and dark humor, The False Prince is a compelling read. I look forward to Book Two”
