Making a Prince

Commit treason or die.  That is the choice Sage faces in The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen.  He is one of four orphans that a nobleman named Conner buys.  Conner pits the boys against each other in a series of deadly games.  He plans to use the winner to impersonate a prince who has been missing for years.   The winning boy will ultimately become a puppet king, but the losers are lose ends that will need eliminating. 

This book had a gripping combination of action and intrigue.  There are plots within plots and all sorts of devious twists.  Sage is smart and snarky and that makes a great narrating voice.  I can't say too much more without giving it away, but this one is definitely worth reading.
