A moral dilemma is when you have to decide between doing something right or wrong. The moral dilemma in The False Prince was if Sage should go through with Connor's plan or defy him and tell the regents Connor's plan. The author of the book is Jennifer A. Nielsen. DON'T READ ON IF YOU HATE SPOILERS!!!
As you read on later into the book you find out that Sage is actually Prince Jaron. You also find out he has been hiding in Avenia for 4 years after the pirates tried to kill him. He knows he is doing the right thing by going through with the plan because the throne is actually his. If I was in Sage's shoes then I would not have done things differently because the throne was his because he was next in the royal bloodline.
