The worldwide phenomenon continues—from the boldly original author of Captive Prince and Prince’s Gambit.
Damianos of Akielos has returned.
His identity now revealed, Damen must face his master Prince Laurent as Damianos of Akielos, the man Laurent has sworn to kill.
On the brink of a momentous battle, the future of both their countries hangs in the balance. In the south, Kastor's forces are massing. In the north, the Regent's armies are mobilising for war. Damen's only hope of reclaiming his throne is to fight together with Laurent against their usurpers.
Forced into an uneasy alliance the two princes journey deep into Akielos, where they face their most dangerous opposition yet. But even if the fragile trust they have built survives the revelation of Damen's identity—can it stand against the Regents final, deadly play for the throne?
From the Trade Paperback edition.
I discovered this incredible trilogy fairly recently and eagerly awaited the publication of this book because of Pacat's amazing characterization and careful plotting in the first two. This certainly did not disappoint, with beautifully crafted and honest characters, plot twists--more like plot loop-d-loops-- and artful descriptions that made my toes curl. A fantastic book to read, love, read again and relish.
Captivating (I couldn't resist)
The entire captive prince trilogy is gripping, full of evident meticulous planning and heart. The political intrigue and deeply complex characters and their interactions make for an achingly beautiful read or reread-- having just read it a second time, picking up on all of Pacat's clever hints and gems, it just gets better and better. Do yourself a favor, get these books, and fall in love this world like I did.
A must read series!!!
This book/series is AMAZING!!!! I absolutely love Laurent and Damen. Their chemistry is wonderful. All of the obstacles they overcame plus their past history made their love story all the better. This was definitely my favorite in the series. So much happened in this book!!! I loved the entire journey. I'm so glad i stumbled onto this series three years ago. The wait was definitely worth it! I recommend for everyone to re-read the first two before going into this book. The third book starts right were the second ends. This was one of my favorite series ever <3
