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?

If I weren't currently in a public space, I'd be crying
I hate writing reviews. I say that only to emphasize the power this series has in making me sit down and think and commit it all to memory and tell whoever reads this review to absolutely buy this book. The plot was thoroughly interesting and I was never bored, even for a second. Right off the bat, I was immersed and felt as though I was already familiar with the characters. Everything I usually dislike about reading books as compared to seeing a movie (as far as formatting, writing, and overall experience goes) was essentially eliminated as I was reading this. They say a book is like a movie you direct. There was never a better example than this series.
Perfect for binge reading
Loved immersing myself into this series!
Brilliant and touching
I bought the first book 3 days ago and I have not been so immediately in-love with a cast in a long time. The slow burn and build up of a story is beyond beautiful. The writing is masterful in it's quiet but sharp intelligence. It's definitely worth the price.
