Publisher's Summary

The second volume in the Captive Prince trilogy.

With their countries on the brink of war, Damen and his new master, Prince Laurent, must exchange the intrigues of the palace for the sweeping might of the battlefield as they travel to the border to avert a lethal plot.

Forced to hide his identity, Damen finds himself increasingly drawn to the dangerous, charismatic Laurent. But as the fledgling trust between the two men deepens, the truth of secrets from both their pasts is poised to deal them the crowning death blow.

Amazing!

I really enjoyed the second novel in this incredible series. It's already an all-time favourite book of mine so I couldn't stop myself from listening to the whole series on audiobook. While I did find the narrator's voice a bit clunky at times and his inflection on some words in a sentence a bit surprising, I still very much enjoyed this book.

Stunning and tender

I loved how we got to explore the world more and are introduced to more characters; I loved watching the complex development of all the characters! Seeing the Vere politics and backstabbing from Damien's point of view is really intriguing, especially since he is so unused to it and so appalled.

Again, Phenomenal

Just two days ago I finished the first book, Captive Prince. Today, I finish the second after two days of listening. There wasn’t a moment of my day where I wasn’t itching to continue listening to the journey of Damon and Laurent. Somehow, Pacat managed to further engage and world build masterfully and effortlessly. Nurturing the relationships and delving deeper into the lives of the characters without losing the voice of Damon. There were many twists and turns and shocking discoveries. I shared laughter, anxiety, heartache, and a multitude of the various emotions Pacat was able to describe in a realistic and relatable manner. Not for those under sixteen at least as it deals with heavy nsfw content.

You won't be able to stop "reading" / "listening"

This series. Lord, where to start. This is definitely one of those books that latches onto you and doesn't let go. It requires some trigger warnings, because one of the leads is captured into sexual slavery, but it's handled so very, very well. Honestly, it isn't one of those books out there that feels like it was written as kink porn. Every heart-wrenching moment and plot point has a purpose that drives the story forward and draws the characters together. The first time I read this series, I read all three books in less than 24 hours and didn't sleep a wink during that time. Or eat. I barely even used the bathroom. It's one of those soul-sucking stories that you can't fathom putting down until every last scrap of plot is resolved. And, thankfully, not only does Ms. Pacat do exactly that, she also provides a few novellas to provide that added dose of much-needed closure to those areas where she hinted at the answer, but us broken and bleeding readers thirsted for more. Thankfully, she gave it to us. Every single book in this series is a must-read. I'm not going to go any deeper into the plot than that because I would give damn near anything to read these books, blind, as I did the very first time. Just once more. It's an experience like no other, and one that simply cannot be replicated once you've read them once. Trust me, I've tried. Many times.

loved this beyond words

I have not gasped and felt genuinely upset over the loss of a secondary character in 20 years. Possibly more. I'm totally taken by this story and I appreciate it's existence. Thanks to the creator.

Yes yes yesssss

I am definitely failing my exam next week. Listened to books 1&2 back to back and about to pull an all-nighter to listen to book 3. No way I can do anything else until I hear how this ends.... Very captivating. Great story lines, love the twists and turns, some parts predictable and others I just didn’t expect. Many parts just had me grinning like an idiot.... I freaking love stories with some power play in the romance... yessss. One of the best series I have read so far this year!

Just... wow!

I never thought I would like a romance novel in my life. However, the political landscape and maneuvering of these characters, as well as the incredible way Pacat writes about feelings and sensations had me so hooked! The intrigue had me feeling so anxious that I read through the first two books in less than two days and have already started the third... incredible!

A good sequel.

If you've made it to this book, congratulations! You've made it past the first book which is somewhat...difficult to get through. This book starts almost immediately after the end of Captive Prince and rides hard and fast, full of action and twists. A great sequel.

Delicious intrigue

Delightful enough that even though I read it years ago I’ve been on the edge of my seat through the whole book all over again

Identifying rather too closely with Laurent!

I found this to be a perfect union . . . of book and performance!
