The False Prince -
With attitude to spare and a talent for making mischief, Sage might be the last person you'd expect to be forced into anything. However, he finds himself collected from an orphanage and pressed into a deception. Can he pass for nobility? His life depends on it.
The next two books in this trilogy are The Runaway King and The Shadow Throne.
This is my favorite trilogy by Nielsen (at least, so far). It's a page-turning adventure with plenty of twists and turns to keep readers guessing. Although it's not a comedy, Sage's talent for flinging insults at enemies will amuse most readers . . . and Sage has a talent for collecting enemies. If you appreciate snarky, skilled protagonists, it would be wise to have the next book on hand so you don't have to wait to keep reading.
Note for advanced readers: several violent scenes make this best suited for readers in 6th grade and up; probably not a good fit for most readers younger than fourth grade.
