Today is the first Sunday of the month so I’m going to tell you what I’ll be reviewing this April. A trilogy and a short story – this is what I’ve planned.
I’ve promised you to review them before and they are the creations of two authors that I love.
Even more details?
Check them out!
Let’s start with the trilogy. It’s the Captive Prince by C. S. Pacat.
Genres: LGBT, Romance, Fiction
Before you read the blurbs: If you are interested in the trilogy and don’t want spoilers, read only the blurb to Book I – Captive Prince. If you read the other two, you’ll know where the story is headed. Personally, I don’t think that would take away from your reading experience when you actually grab a copy of the books since there are a lot of twists and the blurbs only show the general direction of the plot, but I thought I’d warn you just in case.
Book I – Captive Prince
Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity, and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.
Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master Prince Laurent epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country.
For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else . . .
Book II – Prince’s Gambit
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…
Book III – Kings Rising
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?
