A nobleman named Conner has a devious plot to gain control of his medieval kingdom: he's going to put an impersonator of the king's long-lost son on the throne, and then he himself will rule from behind the scenes. After searching the land, Conner finds Sage and three other orphans and forces them to compete for the role—or face certain death.

As he moves from a rundown orphanage to Conner's luxurious palace, Sage uncovers more and more layers of treachery and deceit. He doesn't trust Conner one bit, but he's determined to win the competition. After all, the alternative is death. Fortunately, Sage has a few tricks up his sleeve….

Filled with danger, deceit, and hidden identities, this action-packed adventure will keep readers on the edge of their seats!
