Product description

Review

"This was one of my most anticipated books of the year and it did not disappoint... The series is intelligent and beautifully written, with one of the longest, most deliciously painful buildups to sexual consummation I've ever read in a romance... I couldn't have asked for a better finale." --Book Riot

I never expected to get so involved, to feel so much. The last 30-40% of the book was so stressful to read, I'm sure half of St Pancras station could read my thoughts as the last few chapters wrote themselves across my face! I stopped trying to predict what was going to happen a long way back ... sometimes you just have to sit back and watch the carnage as it unfolds ... appreciate C.S. Pacat's sharp wit and vicious talent for ... everything as it smacks you in the face!

It's over and I feel both like crying because it's over and smiling because it was simply amazing. I did both whilst reading. Sometimes simultaneously.

I wish I had a way with words to describe how brilliant this series is, but I just don't have the capability. Captive Prince is my ultimate favourite book series, the one series I can read and reread, that will cheer me up when I'm down or distract me when I need. There's details in every corner of the book so no read is the same, you always pick up something new. Every time I read a book I rate it on a normal scale and a scale compared to captive prince.

The series will have you feeling so many emotions, for a range of characters. You'll be angry at one character and, after another reveal, be angry that that character that you once hated was hurt. The plot is unlike anything in the romance genre, the book simply surpasses that genre into something amazing. The characters are all great, with many sides to every one. Damen and Laurent will forever be in my head and the brilliance of their amazing friendship and romance will dull a lot of future books for me!

It's been an amazing journey, and if you have yet to step on the captive prince train - I envy you! Thank you to C S Pacat who has been an amazing author, her social media and blog presence has only enhanced my love for this series. I wish her all the luck in her future writings.

You'd need the mind of a Grand Master at a chess tournament to keep up with all the plot twists and forward planning. A very interesting series.

Ooh, guys! I am truly intimidated by this attempt to review this. I am afraid I won't be able to do it justice.

There are so many wonderful things about this series which I've talked about before when I reviewed the first two books, but the truth is Kings Rising is even better. It's like touching live wire. Powerful, visceral, stomach churning, mesmerising.

Damianos is larger than life, noble, impossible not to admire. Laurent is one hell of an anti-hero, diabolical, magnetic. I've been fascinated with anti-heroes all my life, but this particular brand is very popular in anime culture. Ai No Kusabi, anyone? Anyway, there is nothing quite like two very strong, wilful individuals falling for each other and fighting it all the way.

Add to it, superb, glorious fights which made me want to scream "This is Sparta!" and incredible love scenes, the electric dialogues and fantastic plot twists, and I was in reading heaven. In fact, I am still high on Kings Rising and planning on re-reading the whole series in a little bit it was so delicious.

If Captive Prince laid down the groundwork for the political manoeuvring, and Prince's Gambit brought that play to the boiling point, and I include into it the building tension between Damen and Laurent, and getting to know both characters strengths and weaknesses, showing them working together on the battlefield, then from that point onward Kings Rising is the unravelling of the plans and feelings.

Whatever you were hoping for in the previous two books, - it will happen. For better or for worse. And it will blow your mind. I can not be less than cryptic because I want you to experience all twists and turns of the plot for yourselves without my spoilers. So, read it, experience the book hangover afterwards, come back and comment. I want you to enjoy it and suffer with me. Read this series, peeps. It's one of a kind.

This was good and if I wasn't comparing it to the first two I might have ended it happier than I did. I did not feel it was as tightly plotted as the previous ones, especially the second, and I felt...I felt what I think is the hand of the big, traditional publishing house in it. For example, one of the things Pacat was criticized for in the first novels was not critically engaging with the subject of slavery and in this one she went to great and I thought artificial lengths to say slavery is bad. Of course it is, but the world as developed and the story as progressing did not often lend itself to changes of opinion on the matter. It felt like a concession to make the world more palatable to a wider. And to a large degree I felt this in the whole tone of the novel, like someone had polished the edges off, where it had been those contours I most appreciated in the previous books.

There were also just too many convenient occurrences that saved lives and last minute remembrances or mysteries figured out, such that maters basically resolved themselves. So, I end this novel torn between still enjoying it (I still love the characters and there is some genuine humor in it) and being a bit disappointed that it didn't stand up to expectations.
