I am surprised to find this book in bookstore. I think this series is only in video games and movie, but finally it appears as a book. The story is also different with one in video games and movie. In this book, it the beginning of Prince of Persia, which tell us story when the prince is born and when he knows his true identity as Prince of Persia.

The plot is a little bit difficult, it combines two stories:
1. Story of his uncle who saved him in the past
2. Story of young prince who learn his true identity and save his kingdom

The difficult part is because usually there is no exact border between these two stories, they are completely mixed. At the first I think both stories are taken at same period, until I realize it at the end of book that they are at different ages.

But there is one little thing that isn't match between these two stories. About how the prince was saved from mass execution in Amir rebellion. But probably it's the beautiful of this story, to leave some part mystery.
