Damen, Prince of Akelios, knows that someday he will be a great king. He has proven to be popular with his people and has all the trappings of a great leader. But when his half-brother takes the thrown as part of a violent coup, Damen is resigned to a much different fate. He is given as a slave to Prince Laurent, the incorrigible heir to the thrown of neighboring (and rival) Vere. Damen finds himself in a dangerous predicament due to Laurent's nature and the political climate of Vere. But what's even more of a risk is that Laurent blames Damen for the death of his brother, making it clear he can never allow his true identity to become known.

This is an extremely well-written and engaging story--I had a very hard time putting it down while I was reading. The character development and world building is superb and it is so easy to become invested in the lives of these characters. There's a great deal of suspense here as well, not only because of Damen's position but also between Laurent and his uncle, and Laurent and many other members of the court. I definitely give this a very high recommendation. ( )

I’m having trouble writing this review because I have so many conflicting feelings about it. Though this book doesn’t have a lot of hype surrounding it currently, I knew going in that lots of people love it but it also has it’s fair share of haters. I also knew enough about the triggering content, so I went in with an open mind and I think that definitely helped.

This is a world where all kingdoms have slaves, the only difference being how they are treated by their masters. Pleasure slaves are the norm, with their ages being as young as thirteen. Rape is used as a performance for the entertainment of the nobility. Court intrigue is at it’s finest. Every word has layers beneath it. There is no loyalty and betrayal seems to be lurking everywhere.

The best part of the book are the two main characters. Damen is very much out of his depth initially, a prince betrayed by his half-brother and gifted as a slave to the enemy. Being the personal pleasure slave of Prince Laurent is not easy, considering he hates the kingdom of Akielos and it’s prince Damianos more than anything. Laurent is also very cunning, brutal, selfish, an expert at wordplay and always three steps ahead of everyone. Throughout his enslavement, Damen has to navigate this pit of vipers, keeping his identity a secret and figure out any possible opportunities for escape.

Both these characters are very captivating to read about. None of them are really good but Damen has some empathy towards his people and definitely displays some morals when forced to fight or violate others younger or weaker than him. Laurent frankly has no redeeming qualities but his scheming mind is just so fascinating. The development of their relationship from brutal enemies to reluctant partners who need to keep each other alive for the sake of their kingdoms is very engaging and I can’t wait to read more of their interactions.

The writing throughout the book is very gripping. The plot is intriguing, very fast paced despite there being no action sequences. Sometimes, the author tries to use very obscure and complicated words which didn’t really enhance the experience for me and I was able to enjoy the story better once I stopped googling them. I also feel guilty for liking this book which has so much violence, gore and inhumane treatment of people but I also can’t deny the fact that I finished it in a single sitting, without once getting up from my couch. And I’m so looking forward to see how the romance angle will be established because currently, it’s difficult to picture Damen and Laurent as anything other than possible friends. ( )

Whoo boy, I must have missed the controversy that came with this book when it first came out because I didn't really know anything about this going in (random number generator picked it for me out of my recommended by friends list).

The book provides a map and list of characters, divided by country created world, which is always nice in fantasy, but I still felt really lost in the first chapter with all the names thrown about. The gist is that Damen was betrayed by his bastard brother and sold into captivity to an enemy country. His country and the land think their prince is dead and I guess no one (I bet I know someone who knows who he is) recognizes him in the enemy country. He's treated as a prisoner and brought to the enemy country, a country that has "pets" and sleeps with the same sex because they revile bastardy so much.

Anyway, by chapter 3 I was already checking out because of the enemy courts rape and pedophilia culture . Damen is brought in and they have a wrestling match where the winner rapes the loser (there's some alluding to it being more of a performance for the people watching). The crowd getting turned on by the rape begin getting sexual with their pets, it's almost an orgy. Ok, fine, I thought we had an erotic/a situation going on here with some line toeing but then Damen remarks on how young one of the pets is, a prepubescent boy and the pedophilia is not quite always front and center from there but with a big secondary character that is a prepubescent boy, it hovers around the spot light.

What really didn't work for me was the tone, this felt like a Literotica.com story, the sexual overtone felt like it was meant to titillate and with prepubescent boys and a forced sexual act on Damen, the tone wasn't something I liked matched with the action happening on page.

I see people like the very slow burn tension that is happening between Damen and his captor Laurent and Laurent seems interesting with his ice façade and, what I'm guessing, is survival technique from surviving his own abuse from his uncle but the tone I talked about is not for me. The fantasy world setting seemed less filled out in favor of the cultural sexual aspects, too. ( )

The series that not only brought the fun back in reading, but also got me hooked on M/M novels in English in general. Forever grateful!

A friendly reminder that you don't have to agree with what happens in a book to enjoy said book! That's the beauty of fiction :) ( )

A fun start to a m/m fantasy romance trilogy. It's a pretty slow burn (in fact, not much really happens at all in this first book), but it's a promising beginning. ( )
