really liked it

This is a great fantasy and adventure book that kept me guessing throughout. The story is set in the land of Carthya, which is on the brink of civil war due to ineffective leadership. Connor, an aristocrat and self-proclaimed patriot, buys four orphan boys who resemble Prince Jaron, the youngest member of the royal family who was lost at sear four years earlier. The royal family has been murdered, but only a few insiders in the government know this. Connor's plan is to train and educate the boys for two weeks before "choosing" Prince Jaron and presenting him to the court to be crowned king. The story is told from Sage's point of view and it's obvious that he has many secrets. At first, it appears that Sage is not interested in being chosen king, but as time goes on, he tells Connor that he will be chosen. The other boys worry about their fate if they're not chosen, and try their hardest to excel in their lessons. Sage is unpredictable, mysterious, and very clever. He befriends servants and challenges Connor at every turn. This is the first book in a trilogy, but ended without cliffhangers.
