The epic conclusion to the internationally acclaimed Captive Prince trilogy.
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 Regent’s final, deadly play for the throne?
It is done. The last page turned, the last word read. This will be a short review because to spoil anything would be a crime. If you made it this far (through the 2+ years of waiting), then you know exactly how I feel. Just know that no disappointment was felt. It was a perfect ending to an amazing series. Laughter was lit and a tear was shed. This world of fantasy will surely be missed. Until the next time I read it… because there will be a re-read.
