    The Orphan Prince review by Ryan Lin

    I got this book as a gift, and after I read it I have to say this is one of the best books that I have read in my life! This novel is about an eleven-year-old boy, Ari, who is the prince of a kingdom called Dinan. His father was killed by a legendary swordsman from an enemy country named Black Wolf when Ari was six years old. After Ari¿s eleventh birthday, he decides to go on a journey to look for Black Wolf. During the journey, Ari encounters great dangers and almost loses his life. But he eventually finds Black Wolf and understands why Black Wolf killed his father. There are many, many surprises in this novel, including a real shocker near the end. You will keep turning the pages because you will want to find out what happens next, and next, and next. In fact, I was not able to stop reading and put the book down, and I finished it in just one day. It¿s not too long like Eragon or Harry Potter. The author created a wonderful world and described it very well so that you feel you are right there in Ari¿s shoes. I love to read and I have read a lot of books, including Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl, and Eragon, and I have to say The Orphan Prince is just as good as those books, if not better! I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys children¿s fantasy and science fiction, who likes to read about scary monsters and amazing sword fights, who wants to be a hero and immerse himself in tons of action and adventure.

    The Orphan Prince

    At the age of six, young Prince Ari stood by helplessly while his father, King Idan, was murdered by a legendary swordsman by the name of Black Wolf. Now eleven, young Ari is heir to his father's Kingdom of Dinan. He lives in a castle surrounded by riches and servants, but his life is miserable, his days tormented by lonliness, his nights haunted by frightening dreams of the menacing Black Wolf. With his only friend, a servant boy named Kai, in tow, Prince Ari sets off on a dangerous journey to the city of Narsus to find his father's assassin. What he discovers will change his life forever. I thoroughly enjoyed The Orphan Prince, and would recommend it not only for children, but also for those adults among us who have enjoyed books such as the Artemis Fowl and Harry Potter series.
