Yes, absolutely I read this straight through after work yesterday. ( )

Best book of the series in my opinion. It's probably actually a 4 star read but I can't help but rate it 5 stars because I read that ending ... at least 4 times. It's great.

My one problem (and the one problematic thing I think this series actually glorifies*) is that I can't really figure out what Damen's motivation for sticking around is. In my defense, I read through these books SUPER fast and could have missed some vital moment of when he decides to stick around. idk/c because this book had some great things that I just freaking loved.

* A lot of people say this series glorifies slavey and pedophilia and rape culture, which i sort of get...but not really. While some of it is normalized in the cultures that exist in the world of the book, it's clear from POV that this is not right and we, the readers, are not meant to be okay with the horrible stuff that's happening. To be fair, the main character does come from a society that normalizes slavery, but it's part of an overall character arc that is... idk uncomfortable to read but is not evil? Look idk, man. If you don't like being uncomfortable, don't read the series. Simple as that.

Back to my *. Am I the only one that feels that Damen's relationship to Laurent is a bit stockholm syndrome-y? It's never really addressed ...but thats the vibe i got. Maybe I'm wrong. But again, I don't care. That's one of the only things that made me pause and say I this feels wrong and Damen doesn't seem to be seeing it...

Tl;dr read it... or don't. I am not helpful at all. ( )

The slow-burn! The shenanigans! The character development! DID I MENTION THE SLOW-BURN?! “A kingdom, or this.”?!?! Cue me, incoherently sobbing in the corner of my room, because EMOTIONS.

Pacat’s prose is so tightly-wound and tense, I need a breather every few chapters. Amazing.

Also, despite reading the book multiple times I still feel put through the wringer after that particular scene with Aimeric. I wasn’t surprised at his betrayal, but his reason for it was like a punch to the gut. One of my favorite scenes in the whole trilogy.

And then the last chapter comes for me, specifically with this:
‘You don’t know anything,’ Laurent said then, in a cold, terrible voice. ‘You don’t know anything about me. Or my uncle. You’re so blind. You can’t see what’s—right in front of you.’
I love how, knowing the full extent of damage done to Laurent by his uncle, you suddenly get what he’s talking about. There’s this whole chasm between him and Damen in this scene, with layers of longing and hurt. Oh yeah, it’s a level of exquisite suffering I’m here for.

Continues to be excellent; I'm really intrigued to see how the author pulls off the last book in the series in a way where Laurent and Damianos can end up together. ( )
  being_b | Jan 8, 2020 |
The Regent's plans have forced Laurent and Damien to work together, but the more they work, they closer to an actual war they seem to come. Laurent's promise to release him once they reach the Akielos border - and Damien has done what he can to help, of course - but as they work to counter The Regent's plans, the closer they come to each other as well. It is dangerous, for soon the discovery of his true identity will be inevitable but Damien is unable to stop himself. Maybe, just maybe it is possible to somehow end this in peace. Or at least, that's what he thinks... until the truth of the events surrounding his father's death starts to come to light.

I mostly read the first one to try and understand the hype, as well as be able to join the discussion around it. I didn't like it much; partly because of the racism debate I've seen but also because I didn't really like how the book handled sexual abuse, and especially such with children involved, or how the discussion around this looked among the readers'. But I'm not really one to start a series without feeling like I have to finish it, so here I am.

The feelings I had during the first book are to a certain amount still relevant, even though I do feel like the series' discussion surrounding these topics have somewhat gotten better. Perhaps because it is allowed to be more nuanced - something that feels quite important when it comes to the discussion of them. But I honest to god do not understand why one would feel a romance is somehow a good dynamic to bring to such a discussion. It takes away a lot of what otherwise probably would've felt like a proper attempt to discuss the aspects of this. It could've been a decent debate about abuse and rape in the name of power, and war, but alas. ( )
