Description

The second volume in the Captive Prince trilogy.

With their countries on the brink of war, Damen and his new master, Prince Laurent, must exchange the intrigues of the palace for the sweeping might of the battlefield as they travel to the border to avert a lethal plot.

Forced to hide his identity, Damen finds himself increasingly drawn to the dangerous, charismatic Laurent. But as the fledgling trust between the two men deepens, the truth of secrets from both their pasts is poised to deal them the crowning death blow.

Stunning and tender

I loved how we got to explore the world more and are introduced to more characters; I loved watching the complex development of all the characters!
Seeing the Vere politics and backstabbing from Damien's point of view is really intriguing, especially since he is so unused to it and so appalled.

A good sequel.

If you've made it to this book, congratulations! You've made it past the first book which is somewhat...difficult to get through. This book starts almost immediately after the end of Captive Prince and rides hard and fast, full of action and twists. A great sequel.

Delicious intrigue

Delightful enough that even though I read it years ago I’ve been on the edge of my seat through the whole book all over again

Best in the Trilogy

This is my favorite book of the three. The buildup is slow and convincing, the background frightening, including a blind everlasting war. At the beginning I wasn’t pleased with the reader, but he grew on me. He catches nicely Damian’s dilemma and his awe towards Laurent.

So much better than the first!

Prince's Gambit is the second book in the Captive Prince series by C.S. Pacat. It is an erotic m/m romance set in a Western European, medieval, fictional universe, and is so much better than the first. There was more development of characters, relationships, world building, and plot. This book was as much about revealing Laurent’s deceptions as keeping Damen’s secrets.

This book had more substance than the first. Laurent and Damen’s feelings, personalities, and experiences were much more complex and detailed, and their interactions were so filled with tension, angst, as well as excitement and anticipation.

There was more action, though there were at times more telling than showing of the action. And there was adventure, as Damen accompanied Laurent on his reckless, risky schemes.

There was suspense and betrayals and unpredictable plot twists, but the best part of course was seeing the trust, intimacy, and feelings that grew between Damen and Laurent. They brought out the best in each other.

I loved how Damen came to Laurent’s rescue time and again sometimes with superhuman strength, will, and determination. I loved how Damen tempered Laurent’s anger and willful personality and stood up to him, and how carefully he treated Laurent. How sexy the consent!

I really wonder if there was more going on with Laurent’s perceived frigidity, if it was more than self-preservation, self-defense. It was the one thing that irritated me, it was too ambiguous, but Laurent’s reactions and tension were so strong I don’t know why Damen didn’t wonder about it too. Maybe he didn’t want to confront it. Maybe they both didn’t want to. Or maybe it wasn’t there. But either way it can’t continue to be this ambiguous, and I hope in book 3 it’s put into perspective.

I didn’t think the extra chapter after the end of the book was necessary, so I can see why it was probably cut from the text. The scene didn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know about Damen and Laurent Sometimes, less is more.

Not a big fan of the narrator’s performance in book 1, but I got more comfortable with his voice in book 2. I didn’t want to stop listening to the audiobook and couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. Apparently, most reviewers felt that book 2 was the best in the series. I’m very curious to see how I’ll feel about book 3. This feels like a series I could read or listen to all over again.

very Yaoi and it feels so good!

so I really enjoyed this book. it's a Romance unlike the first book which does the set up for the world. I love that it's a big muscle man and a slim beautiful man falling in love! it's also nice to watch them not realize how they truly feel but watch them act on the feelings of love for each other.
the palace intrigue is pretty good. it's not super shocking or in depth but is interesting and adds to the romance!

Even better than the first book!

After reading the first book, I chose to listen to the audiobook for the second book. It's currently hard for me to find some time to sit down and read after work but the audiobook was amazing! The narrator has a really smooth voice and I really enjoyed listening to him. As for the book itself, it was great. Laurent is slowly becoming one of my all time favourite characters. He is just so nasty sometimes but then there's always Damen to calm him down. Seeing him and Damen slowly fall in love is just so pure! I loved him und Damen all the way through the audiobook. This book was also really interesting because of the intrigues and Laurent's constant "games" with his uncle. The last chapter kept me wide awake at night and I can't wait to see what's coming next.

Einer der besten Bücher, die ich je gelesen habe

Ich kann dieses Buch nur wärmstens Empfehlen. Wo ich bei dem ersten Teil der Serie noch zurückhaltend mitgefiebert habe, hat mich dieses Buch jede Sekunde gefesselt. Dieses Buch ist eine Meisterleistung an Literatur mit so vielen Ideen, dass man nie sicher ist was als nächstes passiert.
Der Fokus liegt nicht auf Sex und nur leicht auf dieser wundervollen Liebesgeschichte. Ich würde hier mehr als 5 Sterne geben wenn ich könnte! Super klasse Buch.
