Captive Prince: Volume One

Captive Prince: Volume One - C.S. Pacat, S.U. Pacat Cover for the Penguin edition being released on April 7th 2015!

I read it!!! I finally read it!!!

After a lot of people told me to read this, I finally took the plunge. I was expecting something. I'm not sure what. But I can honestly say this was nothing like I expected it to be. Nothing!

My thoughts before reading.

But after I read this.

Now. For a word of warning. Do not read this because you want a fluffy romance. This book has zero romance. It is not a romance! It is the start of a series. A bloody brilliant start if I do say so myself. But this is not a happy book. You will not get declarations of love. I loved it, though.

The plot is about the Captive Prince, Damen, who was heir to the throne of Akeilos. But after his fathers death, his bastard brother betrayed him and sold him as a slave.
Which is where Rabatian Prince, Laurent, comes into the story.

I loved both characters. Which will shock some people. But. Meh. It's the truth. Laurent was a real surprise. But people who read this will see what I mean.

Some more thoughts from me.

Go read this book if you are prepared. I recommend it!!!! Go. Go. Go!!!
