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?
Pacat's glorious erotic Captive Prince trilogy concludes with this tour de force, a tale of politics, betrayal, and passion set in a troubled pair of fantasy realms. Damianos, Prince of Akielos, is romantically and politically allied to Laurent, Prince of Vere, but the connection is an uneasy one. Damen's brother had Damen kidnapped and usurped the throne; Damen was sold into slavery and purchased by Laurent. Now that the tides have turned, Damen's alliance with Laurent is shocking to his countrymen, who worry about his former owner's continuing influence over him. Laurent's malicious uncle serves as his regent and intends to keep all the power for himself, and the two of them clash on and off the battlefield. Laurent and Damen need each other politically as they try to meld their armies to take back both Vere and Akielos, but the demands of war and politics complicate their personal relationship. Pacat delivers a rip-roaring epic full of double and triple crosses, beleaguered romance, intimate erotic interplay, and a surprising amount of leavening humor, ending the series with grace and panache. Captive Prince and Prince's Gambit raised high hopes and expectations; this volume surpasses them.
I just enjoyed this trilogy. The LGBTQ element is so integrated that it proves how normal it is. The story goes on and on in a good way, with twists, turns, and intrigues. I want a Time Machine.
This is my favorite book series. The prose is like poetry and the characters and plot are beautifully nuanced and complicated. Best enemies to lovers series out there.
Didn’t cry, but a beautiful end to the trilogy
Very upset it’s ending and I didn’t get a little prologue of them joining the kingdoms as one.. loved it please give it a read so worth the money.
