Jennifer A. Nielsen î The False Prince DOC

In this first book in a remarkable trilogy an orphan is forced into a twisted game with deadly stakesChoose to lieor choose to dieIn a discontent kingdom civil war is brewing To unify the divided people Conner a nobleman of the court devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king's long lost son and install him as a puppet The False Prince is THAT book I stayed up way too late in order to finish itand 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 dirtyI 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 Special Shelved The False Prince on the strength of his voice alone Sage embodies the personality of my number one most coveted male character type ever yes even over alpha men The swoon is near uncontrollable Luckily I was saved from being a total creeper lusting after a fifteen year old because Sage's voice makes it very easy to imagine him as a completely adult 20 something Sage is one of those characters who has Sherlock Holmes Superpowers of Observation and Fantasticness Which is to say he's always about ten steps ahead of everyone can deduce master plans from a discarded gum wrapper and pulls it all off with the type of suave demeanor that never fails to make my knees wobble Plus he's an underdog with attitude and I have a massive weakness for hot underdogs with swaggering attitude Sage never seems to be able to resist needling those who lord over him even if it means he'll get a bruise for his uip He also lies like a pro so that combined with his stealth and sneakiness make him the type of character that makes a great thief or conman Basically think Han Solo plus Sherlock Holmes' brains plus extra hotness and a smidgen of vulnerability and you've pretty much got Sage Slow burn pacing As much as I love fast paced books my favorite kinds of books actually have a slow burn pace NOT to be confused with a sloooow pace which is chock full of a lot of boring filler In a slow burn pace plot details come together like a puzzle with intrigue building steadily and keeping me on my toes throughout the whole book Like a slow burn romance slow burn pacing strings me along with delicious little morsels and makes me beg for and The majority of The False Prince takes place in Conner's castle the noble with The Plan as he trains the boys and maliciously toys with their emotions because you see only the guy that's picked to impersonate the prince gets to live Backstabbing literally and shaky alliances abound amid secrets lies and a truth you may or may not see coming but is so astoundingly great that surprise level doesn't even matter I did guess the broad strokes early on but the details were a surprise that darn near broke my heart This is the first book in a series and it's very clear by the end of the book that there's a lot to come in this story Thankfully there isn't a dangling by your fingertips cliffhanger but it is very much like the end of The Fellowship of the Ring the movie where the first part of the uest is finished the whole fellowship is broken Frodo is poised to just walk into Mordor and Aragorn is as hot as ever So yeah I'm satisfied with everything I got and I can wait without suffering a heart attack because I know Sage is ok but BIG STUFF is coming and I cannot wait to be a part of it I can't NOT mention the romanceThe plot isn't the only thing set on slow burn Yes that's right Slow burn romance But really it's very slow burn because not much happens in this first book outside of lots of scenes with delicious tension There's even a touch of well it's not uite hate turned love but there's a little combativeness there and she isn't exactly falling all over herself to be with him and no she isn't insane or blind if you can believe it Really though I'm not complaining at all I'm firmly on the side that thinks it's much better to have the romance come together later on in the series Bottom lineI reallyI can'tI just I'm so unbelievably in love with The False Prince I don't even have the words to describe it I'm so busy right now with packing and trying to get everything together to move in a few weeks but I was very irresponsible because I pushed everything aside including sleep AND food just so I could devour this bookAnd then I went through serious mourning when I finished because of course there aren't any other books in the series yet and all of my other Special Shelf books are packed away So I went back and reread all of my favorite scenes in The False Prince And then all the other scenes And then I read my favorite scenes again And then I tried to read other books on my TBR but they're just not The False Prince and I think I'm going to cry I'm so desperate for Or to put it in food terms if I were given the choice between reading this book or attending an unlimited pastry banuet filled with every delectable treat imaginable I would choose The False Prince—HANDS DOWN I can think of no higher praise than that 5 Stars Special ShelfExplanation of rating system Star Rating Key Originally posted at Small ReviewWhat did I think of the seuel The Runaway King
