Sage, an orphan, spends most of his time pickpocketing on the streets near his orphanage until he is purchased by a King's Regent, who also purchases two other boys of similar appearance. The three boys are taken to the Regent's estate, where they are they are told that the King, Queen, and Heir to the throne have all been murdered. The knowledge is supposed to stay secret, since it will cause a civil war among the Kingdom's factions--there is no other Heir to the throne since the King's second son disappeared four years earlier. The Regent, however, has a plan--resurrect the dead prince, and have him claim the throne. Thus, the three boys he bought are all trained to be the vanished prince, with the knowledge that the two who fail will be killed to avoid the scheme being exposed.
