Publisher Description

The stunning conslusion of worldwide phenomenon—from the boldly original author of Captive Prince and Prince’s Gambit.

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?

Just reread this series

Overall I really love this series but the ending is just very lackluster to me. First of all, Laurent just seemed like an entirely different person and there was no big event that really changed him (maybe the fight he had with Damen in Marlas, but still wasn’t convincing enough that something like that would change his entire personality). Also there were still so many loose ends to tie up at the end of the book. Nikandros??? He clearly hated Laurent and I could hardly see him taking the news well that they’re getting married (Maybe?? I inferred this from the last few pages). Also...you never really hear Kastor’s reasoning like he was just upset and turned on his family?? Like we get he was jealous, but hearing more exposition about how he went from jealous to murderous would be nice. Idk overall the series is a 4/5, but the latter half of this last book could be better reworked. Also the sex scenes could be clarified further, the way they were written was so confusing, I was just mentally picturing an Old Testament angel that is a composite of random body parts whenever I read a sex scene between Laurent and Damen. It was hard to picture exactly what they were doing because the descriptions were not precise.

Great conclusion

The title, this book was a very dramatic conclusion to the trilogy.
