Description

Damen is a warrior hero to his people and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity, and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.

Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master, Prince Laurent, epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country.

For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else.

Audio issues

How could the performance have been better?

I had issues with the performance at times in that the narrator would suddenly get very quite so it became very hard to hear especially while driving on the highway over the holidays. I had to turn up the volume almost as high as it would go which is headache inducing. Otherwise besides it was hard at times to distinguish voices and the narrator also had a very bored cadence to his voice. I am hoping book 2 is better

Excellent piece, just be cautious

This is one of my favorite trilogies I've ever come across. It has incredible reread value and where the summaries make it out to be far more scandalous than it actually is, it's an extremely immersive political thriller romance.

It does have a lot of content in it that can be difficult to stomach (really only in the first book with slight smatterings in the second and third), but it never glorifies it and it's always presented to be interpreted as negative and as a plot point for future development. Basically, if you managed to watch Game of Thrones, you should be fine here. It certainly isn't a piece for everyone but it is so incredibly satisfying when you read them through and through.

The characters make such an incredible journey and they are such wonderful compliments of one another that keep you gripped and, especially in the first book, you wonder how things could possibly be different or change.

I could sing praises forever about the book but I suggest people just read it if they're curious enough. The narrator is not bad, though I don't necessarily agree wi

Not for me but probably for someone.

The narration was good. I just should've done more research on the book. Didn't expect so much graphic sex and rape. Not bad, just not at all my taste. Giving it 3 because the overall story is interesting and she did an ok job of world building.

Favorite Trilogy

After reading the reviews of this audiobook, I was nervous about the quality of the narration, but found myself pleasantly surprised. It took me a couple of chapters to get accustomed to the inflection and tone the narrator provided for each separate character, but by chapter four or five, he was able to hold my complete, captivated attention despite having read the book in print multiple times.

Overall, despite the narrator's tendency to speak a little too quietly sometimes, I've enjoyed the first installment so much that I'll probably splurge for book two before receiving my monthly credit. Treat. Yo. Self.

Captive audience

Why did I wait so long. This story is rich in scenery, character building and storyline. Highly recommended. I'm off to book two now.

perfection tainted

I adore this book series. I own the original copies the author used to publish online independently. I was so excited to hear the audio book.

But the voice performer is just okay... he was a good choice in expressing the attitudes of the Vere courts and Laurent's personality.... but the inflection in the perspective of Damon comes across as whiny and too feminine. wish they could have found a voice actor who can sound very masculine and very feminine for both characters; since they are so different from each other..

Good but

This is a re-read for me and although I liked it and am incredibly happy that its finally on audiobook the narrator's voice made it hard in the begining to differentiate between characters

Meh

Disappointed in this. I dont find any energy in the writing and the plot is predictable. Not enough sex to hold that interest either. Still on the hunt for good LGBTQ fantasy/sci-fi.

Intriguing and intense

I love seeing Damien react to all the wildly different circumstances and the conflicting feelings. Watching him try to figure out what he's feeling and how he wants to proceed in whatever the situation might be was super interesting.
I love seeing Damien's view of Laurent shift and become more complex throughout the book- from hatred to admiration to lust all layered together.

Great Book!

Loved the book! im a truck driver, and have been wanting to read these books for a while now, but never had the time, until i found them on Audio! the Narrator gets pretty quiet at times, which i dont like because I have to turn my radio up to 32 and I cant believe that is good for it, but that is my only complaint about him or the book!!

Erstaunlich dichter Plot

Achtung: Keine Kuschelerotik. Allerdings auch kein billiger Schmalzporno sondern eine sehr gut durchdachte Geschichte über Intrigen und Königshäuser. Bin gespannt auf den nächsten Teil.

More rape than romance

Beware, the author tries to mask rape and sexual slavery as romance. The fantasy aspect lacks as well.
