Hey Rem here! Now... let's talk talk about books

The False Prince

The False Prince - Jennifer A. Nielsen The Runaway King - Jennifer A. Nielsen The Shadow Throne - Jennifer A. Nielsen

This is probably one of my favorite books. When I first bought checked it out I didn't know just how much I'd love it. Here I am two years later with my own copy of the book as well as his brothers ( The Runaway King and The Shadow Throne)

The Characters?

Where do I even begin? Sage is exactly what you (well I) want in a main character, he's funny, witty and foolish. He makes rash decisions and is thought to be careless. Though, he isn't as careless as everyone thinks and is in fact intelligent but he keeps that to himself. I liked how could see the other characters developing as well despite the fact we don't hear their thoughts. Roden and Tobias were both well written. Overall their actions and thoughts were definitely relatable.

The writing style?

Quirky, definitely quirky. Not to mention fun. I love how the book could be so modern in text and speech yet keep the medieval theme/feel to it. I absolutely loved Sage's sarcastic quips, they were definitely something I looked forward to in the book

Although the book seems to depend quite a bit on coincidence it was still great and definitely worth reading
