Waiting on Wednesday #45

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The False Prince (The Ascendance Trilogy #1) by Jennifer A. Nielson
June 7th 2012
Find it on Goodreads

In a discontented kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan. He will find an impersonator of the king’s long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Four orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner’s motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword’s point. He must be chosen to play the prince, or he will certainly be killed. But as Sage moves from a rundown orphanage to the king’s sumptuous palace, layer upon layer of treachery and deceit unfold. Until, finally, a truth is revealed that may prove more dangerous than all of the lies taken together…(from Goodreads)

I have heard so many people rave about this book! It does look amazing to be fair. Sage sounds like an awesome main character, plus I am very intrigued by this truth that "may prove more dangerous than all of the like taken together" - I mean, that sounds like serious stuff. Definitely can't wait to read this one, I'm hoping it'll live up to the hype!
