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.

What is better than a good old fashioned fantasy book? (Honestly pizza, but we're not talking about that right now). C. J. Redwine is a master of adorkable fantasy retellings that aren't just straight up retellings. Not to mention THAT THEY ALL TAKE PLACE IN THE SAME WORLD... umm no wonder all the boys in the real world suck, because Redwine kidnapped them and put them in her books.

So why should you read The Traitor Prince? Well let me tell you:

1.) Magic! I mean who can resist magic?
2.) As before mentioned boys - Javan is honestly too precious for any world, much less the one he's in.
3.) Fierce main female character - honestly Sajda is the master of intimidation and low key snark
4.) If you loved the Wish Granter, be ready for a surprise appearance (Let me tell you, I LOVED THE WISH GRANTER)
5.) Because it's beautiful

Wait... I have just obviously swayed you to my intelligent way of thinking... so why are you still here? GO! READ!

*But if you haven't read The Shadow Queen or The Wish Granter, you should do that first. Not because of spoilers, but because it makes reading guest appearances more fun and exciting.*
