Books On Our Radar: The Traitor Prince by C.J. Redwine

The Traitor Prince is the third book in the Ravenspire series by C.J. Redwine. Each of the books in the series is a retelling of a fairy tale and The Traitor Prince is a darker version of The Prince and the Pauper, but all of the books are within the same Ravenspire kingdom. Each book in this series can be read as a standalone as they all focus on different characters within adjoining kingdoms in the same world. I read both of the other books in the series and there may be tiny little callbacks, but nothing that would feel out of place for a reader that is only reading one story, or out of order. Now I definitely recommend the other two books in the series, and you can check out our reviews as well! The Traitor Prince is promising assassins, tournament fighting, prison breaks, and secrets! I am really looking forward to this installment! Be sure to add this one to your TBR for the February 13th, 2018 release!

 

The Traitor Prince (Ravenspire #3) by C.J. Redwine

Publication: February 13th, 2018; Balzer + Bray

Javan Najafai, crown prince of Akram, has spent the last ten years at an elite boarding school, far away from his kingdom. But his eagerly awaited return home is cut short when a mysterious imposter takes his place—and no one believes Javan is the true prince.

After barely escaping the imposter’s assassins, Javan is thrown into Maqbara, the kingdom’s most dangerous prison. The only way to gain an audience with the king — and reveal Javan’s identity — is to fight in Maqbara’s yearly tournament. But winning is much harder than acing competitions at school, and soon Javan finds himself beset not just by the terrifying creatures in the arena, but also a band of prisoners allied against him, and even the warden herself.

The only person who can help him is Sajda, who has been enslaved by Maqbara’s warden since she was a child, and whose guarded demeanor and powerful right hook keep the prisoners in check. Working with Sajda might be the only way Javan can escape alive — but she has dangerous secrets.

Together, Javan and Sajda have to outwit the vicious warden, outfight the deadly creatures, and outlast the murderous prisoners intent on killing Javan. If they fail, they’ll be trapped in Maqbara for good—and the secret Sajda’s been hiding will bury them both.
