Choose to Lie… or Choose to Die


Jennifer A Nielsen: The Ascendance Trilogy

Book One – The False Prince

Grades 4 – 7

In the first of a trilogy by celebrated author, Jennifer A Nielsen, a story of treachery, deceit and false identities unfolds.

Civil war is pending. Conner, a nobleman of the court, kidnaps four orphans to choose among them an impersonator of the king’s long-lost son and set him up as a puppet prince. One, Sage, questions Conner’s motives, yet his own life ‘balances on a sword’s point’. At all costs, he must be chosen or be killed. Intrigue deepens as rival evil designs surface.

A truth comes to light that proves more lethal than all. Read the first one: A False Prince and you’ll be on your way to the library to grab the second one… and then the third. A great non-stop action fantasy!
