ok this is fine I'M FINE EVEYRTHIN GIT S FNIE
at first i was like o shit this probably isn't going to be gr8 but it was so gr8 i feel so gr8 after finishing this.
This was so touching yet interesting and the characters were just so well-built and intricate even though I could predict some of the backstory that went behind their angstiness.
I remember reading this book and thinking "I only have one issue with it" but now that I'm done with the book and i'm typing this I literally don't ...more
This book sees both Damen and Laurent fighting to reclaim their kingdoms. Despite their differences, the two are forced into a tenuous alliance. They need one another, if either of them hopes to succeed. This makes for plenty of emotional highs and lows along the way as the tw ...more
I. N. T. E. N. S. E.!!!
If I had to describe “King’s Rising” with one word it most certainly would be this one! This book was so damn freaking intense the tension was physically palpable in the air. It dripped from every single page, it consumed me, made me feel uncomfortable, giddy and so excited I could barely keep it in.
Gosh this was actually so damn intense it will tak ...more
It's official....Laurent and Damen are up there as one of my favourite M/M couples.This series was everything I hoped it would be and this book is definitely the best in the series.....
First thing,a MASSIVE thank you to Em for lending me this series.The price definitely put me off.
I really can't explain how much I loved this story.So,with 3 books in the series it's the ultimate slow burn.
Enemies to lovers that's so compelling and captivating.The scene setting was beautiful,the characters(while n ...more
No rating. For now. Up until the 80% mark this was five stars all the way. But that ending...
I feel like I should add more here, so I will. If I were forced to rate this now, based on the series as a whole, this would be a solid four stars. I guess what I'm saying is don't let this review concern you or keep you from reading these books. This ending is perfectly satisfactory. For most books. But after the level of brilliance in the second one in this series, it just can't compare. It was too nea ...more

I also posted them on GR in the Timeline and Cliffnotes section of Captivated.
As gratifying as I hoped it would be and well worth the wait.
Kings Rising Fulfilling a Trilogy
Picking up exactly where Pacat left us in Captive Prince: Volume Two at Ravenel, we are swept into the whirlwind of action, intrigue and romance at a stallion’s pace. Feeding into his arch ...more
Involvement : I just binge read the three books in two days. I'm pretty sure that it speaks for itself. If not, DUH, these books are more addictive than Nutella.
Exhilaration : You can't even imagine how deep I fell for Laurent. Give me a tortured, complex end borderline psycho heart, I'll be intrigued. Add a twisted and convoluted mind, I'll lose my breathe. Make him genuinely smile and I'll love him forever. God, how he made me laugh. ...more
My first thought after I slightly recovered (heavy emphasis on ‘slightly’) from the Captive Prince magic was, “This deserves a movie series!”
And, “Why isn’t there a movie series yet?”

Because no series is this vividly detailed yet deceptively good. From the onset, Pacat had created this intricate web – so perfectly woven and exquisitely crafted tha...more
Let it be known that the Captive Prince series is something beautiful, precious, heady and spectacular. I want the whole world to read this, and people, I'm going to do it. I'm going to rave about this series so much that everyone will end up reading it just to shut me up.
(I won't stop even then, though.)
I have already spe ...more
#1 Captive Prince ★★★★★
#2 Prince's Gambit ★★★★★
#3 King's Rising ★★★★★
Spoilers ahead for the first two books!
A kingdom, or this.
Holy hell. I was not ready for this series to end. What I wouldn't give for a fourth book, even if it was just full of domestic fluff and precious, tender little moments. I would pay good money for a limitless supply of Laurent's wicked snark and Damen's kindness. When I began this series, I never could have guessed that it would mean so much to me. I expected a fun, ...more
‘Laurent of Vere. They say you’re frigid. They say you rebuff all your suitors, that no man has been good enough to prise your legs apart. I believe you thought it would be brutish and physical, and maybe a part of you even wanted it that way. But you and I both know that Damen does not make love like that. He took you slowly. He kissed you until you started to want it.’...more
Laurent said, ‘Don’t stop on my account.’
‘You let him undress you. You let him put his hands on you. They say you hate Akie
For centuries wars were won this way - two countries fighting for one cause - to destroy their real enemies.
War is caused by several things but the most common is the hunger for power.
If you get a taste of it there is a craving, a longing that destroys your soul.
It makes you ruthless, makes you lose your loyalty and makes you forget that there is something other than power - like family or love.
Being betrayed ...more
I was clearly asleep when i rated this book 4.5 stars. After the best giant buddy (re) read, i have seen the errors of my rating.
Bumping it up to:
7+++++++ STAN stars
This series is so good i can't even express how good it is.. I can't EVEN!!!!
The Characterization and character development is out of this world.
The story - every word written in this series has a meaning and a deeper meaning.
The world building and everything else in this series.
The MC's - Damen and Laurent, they a ...more
And it was amazing!
And now I'm going to die from happiness.
Can I just say I'm simply drunk on love for these two? As amazing as ever! Seriously, the greatest trilogy of all time when it comes to MM romance. If you still haven't this one, you are seriously missing out! You know why I love rereading my favorite books? Because you always realize new things, new depths of emotions the characters develop for reach other and new perspectives. I saw more of Laurent's way of thinking and unspoken words this time I reread. He really is a so ...more
➦I've been meaning to read this trilogy for a long time and now, finally, I've read all three books back to back. This will be a quick review of the trilogy as a whole.
➦My overall impression was positive. But I was surprised by a couple of things. I've expected this fantasy to have, well, more fantasy?
➦This felt a bit like... like... Game of Thrones pumped full of testosterone and minus the dragons. Or magic. Ok, forget it, it wasn't like GoT. But there was a battle for the throne (or two) and i ...more
I am just so wowed. Stories like this are why reading is the greatest thing ever. Like how can words create so much magic? It's incredible.
This whole series was so slow burn and delicious from start to finish. I want to rant and rave about how amazing it is: The characters blew me away. The writing was phenomenal. The plot added the necessary tension to truly make the story evolve in unforeseen ways. The author astonishe ...more
