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?… (mais)

I would have been much happier with a lot less canoodling and a lot more handing the Regent his lungs. All the shocking plotting, OMG-Laurent-is-seven-steps-ahead-of-everyone moments that made the first two books so much fun to read pretty much vanished out of this one as our star-crossed lovers lucked and bumbled their way to the sappy ending. (That sappy ending would have been totally fantastic if it had had a shred of credibility.) Loved the interaction between Laurent and Jocaste, though. And now it is done.

*sigh* I hate guilty pleasure failure. ( )

I loved it SO MUCH though I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a battle for Ios with the army Damen and Laurent had built up. ( )

Re-Read March 2019

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 are the best MC's ever. BEST of the BESTEST!!



And this is too cute....



Thank you so much; Elena, Hayley, Moony, Rosa, Teal and Xia for taking this journey with me. It was so much fun.

*******************************************
4.5 "Hello, Lover." Stars

What more can I say other than, I enjoyed this series. Damen and Laurent were amazing characters I enjoyed their Journey from enemies to allies to lovers, the writing was flawless as usual.

"I think if I gave you my heart, you would treat it tenderly" Awwww



Laurent and Damen are so opposite of each other yet they fit so perfect together, in this book they come together to take back their kingdoms and do it so well. I loved Laurent's mind how he thinks and works. Damien's patience and strength was amazing.

The sex scenes were sensual and very engaging..

I’ve,’ said Damen, ‘never—’
‘Nor have I,’ said Laurent. ‘You’d be my first.’
‘As you’d be mine,’ he heard himself say.
Laurent said, ‘I thought that in Akielos, a First Night was special.’
‘For a slave it is,’ said Damen. ‘For a slave it means everything.’


I felt the ending was anticlimactic. I wanted more. I wanted the regent to suffer, tortured and left to rotthe Dexter way.





Thank God there is a 30 page book epilogue.

Overall this is a captivating series.

Damen and Laurent.

Slow burn all the way. Yesss!
I liked this book, I did. Laurent&Damen (Lamen? ;D) is life. Laurent turned out to be one of my fave character, he's so complex and he really surprised me on occasions. I put book 2 on my favorite shelf. And I liked this one too, but it had some flaws, which I think might have came from the last few rushed chapters.

There were some scenes in the middle, which slowed down the plot and it dragged a bit, but I liked seeing how Laurent fit in with the Akileons during the games. I can't make up my mind if it would've been better without these events or not.

What I missed seeing more of however, was Damen with Laurent's soldiers. Jord and the others (I'm so bad with names). I realize my wish is not realistic, Damen was King after all, and kings don't mingle with foot soldiers. But I would've loved to see more of that camaraderie.

I was really surprised when instead of the bloody, I'll-hunt-you-down-and-kill-you kind of ending, there was a trial. I expected more sword-fighting in the end. Not that it's a bad thing, I'm just pointing it out.

During book 1 and 2 Laurent was calculating, planned his steps in advance, outsmarting everyone. He and Damen too made small mistakes which I liked, I hate when the hero is presented to the readers as a perfect specimen. In book 3 however those mistakes were glaringly stupid in my opinion.

Mistake no.1: When Laurent made a deal with Guion, and convinced him that if a trial would be held, he would testify against the Regent, and tell the truth. I was like 'okay... he must have some trick up his sleeve', until the trial did happen, and Damen asked the Council to let Guion testify. Did they really think, that he would side with them? I know, I know, Laurent eventually admitted that his witness wasn't Guion, but his wife, so it was actually Damen's fault for trusting the enemy. Then I was annoyed, because how convenient that lady's story was. It came out of the blue and it was too perfect an explanation.
Mistake no.2: When Kastor fled and Damen wanted to be merciful so he decided not to kill him, again trusting the enemy. And then Kastor drew a knife at him. Really? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice... He couldn't have believed that Kastor would be okay with the punishment he wanted... after everything.


An then there was the deal with the baby. The oldest trick in the book when it comes to women, and I hate it. It is perfectly appropriate for this story however, for that time and age (I know it's alternative historical fantasy - thanks for providing the correct term Teal - but still). Women didn't have a weapon against men except their own child, so they used them. I wanted to bang my head against the wall while saying "not this shit again".

And then the ending. I'm not sure if this was the ending the author planned, and she wrote Summer Palace later. Or, if Summer Palace was the original ending but she cut it off, just to have people some more books to buy. I admit I'm a little annoyed by this. I have to draw the line somewhere, I'm not rich, but maybe next month I'll buy it, cuz I really need more. Every time I come across a book with an abrupt ending I ask myself "Do they not want their own characters to have a happy or at least fulfilled ending?" We readers can't get enough of reading about these characters, the authors probably had enough of writing about them by the time they finish. At least this one does have an ending even if it is in a separate book.

I want more dammit!

-SPOILERS AHEAD-




I want to see how they managed to set everything up. How they fought to unite the two countries that have long been enemies. How they fought to stay together. But most of all I want more of them!
More more more!

/childish rant over

Really though, will there be more? A short story? An epilogue? A "10 years after" snippet? Dare I say it... a sequel? I'll take anything! Pretty please? ( )
