Synopsis

captive prince Prince's Gambit Captive Prince Kings Rising Captive Prince

Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity, and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.

Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master Prince Laurent epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country.

For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else . . .

My Review

It’s been years since a series has affected me as much as the Captive Prince trilogy by C.S. Pacat. With her eloquent words and her brilliant plotting, two of the most beautiful characters I’ve ever read come alive amidst unending turmoil. This is a story about two princes who against impossible odds find their way to each other. Two enemies, rivals, would-be kings who open their hearts up to a singular kind of love. Damen and Laurent couldn’t be more different on the outside, but at their core they each carry a deep sense of loyalty and emotion that with each quiet moment shines on the page. Their ache, their honesty, their longing for each other is visceral. We see their story loosen and unravel even as it twists open with unexpected surprises. War, betrayal and a critical need to reclaim the throne envelop this enemies-to-lovers romance rife with tension. Because ohhh, the tension!!!

“He had been aware of a diffuse but growing tension, a sensation almost like he was waiting … waiting for something, unsure what it was. It was like being alone in a pit with a snake: the snake could relax, you could not.”

In a place where their lives were constantly in peril, in a time where secrets held power, nothing is ever at it seems—so Damen and Laurent must not only try to be honest, but they must trust that their judgments of each other hold true. But of course, nothing is as it seems.

“If he’d imagined it, it was a single, cataclysmic event, an unmasking that, whatever followed, would be over.”

Non-stop action and intrigue coupled with a burning desire to see Damen and Laurent’s relationship evolve, drive this fast-paced story forward. Every moment is etched on my heart and I assure you, that once you read it, you’ll feel the ache of the crescive hole that remains immediately after you flip the final page.

“I think if I gave you my heart, you would treat it tenderly.”

These books are just everything… sweeping and intimate, exciting and suspenseful, brutal and sad, insanely hot and epically romantic. I bow to C.S. Pacat’s brilliance and cannot wait to read her short stories, which will be out later this year.

I tried to convey my feelings for this book on video. I failed—you’ll see below!
