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.

Review quote

Praise for C. S. Pacat and the Captive Prince Trilogy "You will be completely enthralled and on edge."--USA Today "Have you read Captive Prince? If you haven't, what are you waiting for?" "The cumulative effect of reading them back to back is mind blowing."--Dear Author "Pacat's powerful debut, a blend of intense erotica and political fantasy, is disturbing and intriguing in equal measure...The intricacy of the political entanglements gives depth to the novel's erotic turmoil...Fans of Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel series will eat this up with a spoon."--Publishers Weekly "Fans of Pacat's internet-serial sensation will need no convincing of the merits of this series, but new readers should take note--this book lives up to every word of praise it has garnered. The lush setting, full of intricate historical detail, engaging decadence and ruthless scheming, will draw many, but it's Pacat's characters...who'll surely keep readers captive. Their tenuous, fractious relationship is the heart and soul of this trilogy, and thankfully, readers will not have long to wait between installments in order to watch it unfold."--RT Book Reviews
