    OM G YM God ok this is fine I'M FINE EVEYRTHIN GIT S FNIE at first i was like o shit this probably isn't going to be gr8 but it was so gr8 i feel so gr8 after finishing thisThis was so touching yet interesting and the characters were just so well built and intricate even though I could predict some of the backstory that went behind their angstiness I remember reading this book and thinking I only have one issue with it but now that I'm done with the book and i'm typing this I literally don't remember what that was The betrayals in this stung just as much as they were supposed to it was gripping the plot twists got me some whiplash the climax was everything I just think there was a lot of room for an epilogue and I heard rumors about there being an epilogue floating around somewhere and I would love to read it because it leaves off in a place where you're like king george voice what comes next definitely would highly recommend this series even though the first one is sort of shameful it's the only book that goes so far into rape and abuse and sexual assault so if you can get through it the rest of the series is full of amazing character development and war aspects and I JUST LOVE DAMEN AND LAURENT OK

    ”To gain everything and lose everything in the space of a moment That is the fate of all princes destined for the throne” I N T E N S E If I had to describe “King’s Rising” with one word it most certainly would be this one This book was so damn freaking intense the tension was physically palpable in the air It dripped from every single page it consumed me made me feel uncomfortable giddy and so excited I could barely keep it in Gosh this was actually so damn intense it will take me ages to recover from that final bookAs it seems Pacat isn’t only a master at manipulation but also of building up almost unbearable tension between her protagonists and boy did I live for it 333 I loved this so much my heart overflowed with joy XDThis book is perfectionIt really is The plot was so elaborate and ingenious that it was a pleasure to watch it unfold Every little moment in this series had a purpose a reason to exist and in “King’s Rising” we finally get to the core Layer by layer we unravel the true scope of the Regent’s plans and Laurent’s ceaseless attempts to stifle the countless fires Gosh there were so many infinitesimal moments that added up to the entire story in the end it was just brilliant and so very delightful to read Boy am I a happy camper or what? LOL And don’t even get me started on the scenes between Laurent and Damen SO FREAKING INTENSE Wait how often did I already use that word by now? 4 times? Yep I think that’s enough for an introduction XD Before I’m tempted to use it a fifth time we better head to the main part the actual review ; The plot ”The ache of loss didn’t make sense because Laurent had never been his He had known that The delicate thing that had grown between them had never had a right to exist”After the revelation of Damen’s true identity at the end of “Prince’s Gambit” Laurent and Damen don’t only have to face each other as King and Prince but are also forced to deal with their new situation If they truly want to depose the Regent and Kastor there is no other way than to trust each other combine their forces and to become allies though A task that most certainly won’t be as simple as it sounds Their enemies are closing in their armies clash the fate of two kingdoms is at stake and between all that their hearts continue to burn with the heat of uncontrollable desire The characters Fair warning This is the part where I usually uote the hell out of the book and go into detail about the plot and the main characters So yeah there will be a lot of spoilers in your near future and if you don’t want to be spoiled I advise you to leave now ; Damen – The King ”For the first time he caught a glimmer of what Laurent would be like as a king He saw him not as the Regent’s unready nephew not as Auguste’s younger brother but as himself a young man with a collection of talents thrown into leadership too early and taking it on because he was given no other choice I would serve him he thought and that itself was like a revelation”It was so wonderful to watch how easily he slipped into the role of a king I mean I always knew that Damen would make a great king but to actually see it and to experience how he took his rightful place was something entirely different The dynamics between him and Laurent were really interesting to watch because for once he actually had the upper hand Not when it came to scheming mind you lol but when it came to the strength and sheer force of his army he definitely trumped him XD I loved that he didn’t let his experiences get him down he still fought and he didn’t hide his scars No he accepted them as a part of him and as a part of his own history and in the end this made him an even better king Still I always felt sorry for Damen when he fell into old habits or when he encountered other slaves I just hope that he’ll be able to heal his wounds in “The Summer Palace” ”He felt the limits of his own nature which too easily swung to anger and the need – stymied by circumstance – to bring about the Regent’s death All he wanted was to take up his sword and cut a path into Ios” ”There was a man I was supposed to meet He’s got all these ideas about honour and fair play and he tries to keep me from doing the wrong thing But he’s not here right now Unfortunately for you” ”I thought I’d let you go up and down a few times” said Damen “before I take you”“I thought you were down here because you couldn’t take me” ”That is the man you face He has honour and integrity than any man I have ever met He is dedicated to his people and his country And I am proud to have been his lover” Damen said it with his eyes on Laurent willing him to know how much he meant it and for a moment Laurent just gazed back at him his eyes blue and wideLaurent – The Prince ”A ludicrous boyish hope flared that someone would come to help him and carefully he extinguished it Since the age of thirteen there had been no rescuer for his brother was dead”I loved that we got Laurent’s POV Admittedly it was just for a chapter but this chapter was amazing To finally be able to see how he thinks To be in his head without all those barriers he built to protect himself After all this time we finally saw the true Laurent and damn it but he’s such a broken boy TT And yet despite all that despite every experience he made he still decided to trust Damen he opened up to him and eventually fell in love with the man who killed his brother Oh my what a poor lonely tortured and conflicted soul 333 I could understand his hatred for Damen especially because he always knew who he was and I guess to see that he wasn’t the monster he believed him to be must have been extremely painful He lost his brother and then he found him in Damen again ARGH I just wanted to hug him and tell him that everything is going to be alright XD ”Laurent had always been capable of a kind of ruthless pragmatism He was able to put emotion aside and do what he had to do to win with a perfect and nauseating ability to ignore all human feeling” ”Laurent had never needed to use force to make men obey him just as he had never needed men to like him in order to get his way Laurent got his way because when men tried to resist him they found sweetly outmanoeuvred that they couldn’t” ”Am I talking too much? I can’t hold alcohol at all” “I can see that”“It’s my fault I never drink I should have realised I’d need to with men like these and made an effort to build up some sort of tolerance” He was serious ”A fair fight?” said Laurent turning back to him “No fight’s ever fair Someone’s always stronger”Nikandros – The loyal friend ”And if I call on you to fight?”“Then we fight” said Nikandros “Together”The straightforward ease of it left him without words He had forgotten what home felt like He had forgotten trust loyalty kinship FriendsI adore Nikandros He’s such an amazing and loyal friend and I loved how much he cared about Damen’s well being Not because he was his king but because he actually truly cared about him Poor Damen though he had to fight a lot for his relationship with Laurent considering what he did to him I can’t blame Nikandros for disapproving of their love though The moment in the tent after the fight with Pallas was one of the most intense scenes in the entire book and I really really like Nikandros XDJokaste – The true cast iron bitch ”You weren’t expecting what it felt like when he touched you You weren’t expecting the weight of his body how it felt to have his attention to have him want you”“You left out the part near the end when it was so good I let myself forget what he’d done”“Oh dear” said Jokaste “That was the truth”That evil bitch I hated her so much and yet I could understand her URGH In a sick and twisted way she truly loved Damen and only sold him into slavery in order to save his life Still the wounds she inflicted run deep and I’ll never like her because of that Yes she saved his life but she also almost killed him with it The conversation between her and Laurent was one of the best highlights of the series though and it would be a lie to claim I didn’t enjoy every delicious and juicy moment of it No actually I loved it lol 333 So much hatred and tension Ahh it was such a delight to read XD My cunning and crafty faerie heart couldn’t help but relish their encounter with enthusiastic joy ; P I just live for moments like this Haha 3Dament – Their relationship ”I hated you” said Laurent “I hated you so badly I thought I’d choke on it If my uncle hadn’t stopped me I would have killed you And then you saved my life and every time I needed you you were there and I hated you for that too” TENSION So much tension it almost killed me while I read the book Their relationship was so complicated and rough in “King’s Rising” Now that they both met each other as king and prince they had to live up to certain expectations and they tried everything possible to follow the rules Of course the heart and the mind are always two different things and I think you could see that inner conflict on every page of the book Still I loved their honesty and their strength that they both didn’t yield and that they tried to make it work somehow XD It was a long way until they reached that moment though and as usual Pacat taunted us with the promise of a wonderful relationship in the future lolsigh There were so many awesome scenes in that book and I can’t mention them all but there definitely were some moments I’ll never forget For instance their fight in the training area It was so freaking amazing and it was such a good picture of their relationship The way Laurent tried to defend himself with everything he had and the realisation that he just couldn’t win against Damen He didn’t only win their fight but also Laurent’s heart Pacat Well done This was such a brilliant way to describe their relationship I have to pay you my respect XD AND speaking of amazing scenes Can we take a look at the chapter in which they appear united for the very first time? OMG Laurent’s gift to Damen The whipping of the clan mercenaries Gosh That was such a mean and deliberate move XD Damen’s retort however wasn’t less sophisticated though lol To gift him with his golden slave cuff Good lord ARGH I LOVE THOSE TWO BOYS SO MUCH LOL 3333They certainly didn’t make it easy for each other and their heated word duels always had me at the edge of my seat XD What I also loved was the fact that they both always seemed to know what the other one needed Whenever one of them was about to lose control they both didn’t even hesitate and were there to catch each other if need be This was so damn beautiful My heart just ached for them 333 BUT the last couple of chapters That moment when Laurent actually begged his uncle for Damen’s life OH MY GOD Laurent my precious beautiful and hurt boy knelt in front of his uncle to save Damen’s life The man who killed his brother the man he trusted than anyone else the man he loved than his own life ARGH MY HEART YOU ARE NOT ALONE LAURENT YOU ARE LOVED GOSH I CAN’T EVEN 333I’m dead TT ”Shall I ask you how you did it? What he looked like when your sword went in?”“No” said Damen“Or shall I tell you about the illusion of the man who gave me good counsel Who stood by me Who never lied to me”“I never lied to you”The words were awful in the silence that followed them ”I miss you” said Laurent “I miss our conversations” ”How can you trust me after what your own brother did to you?”“Becaues he was false” said Damen “and you are true I have never known a truer man” He said into the stillness “I think if I gave you my heart you would treat it tenderly” ”I killed your brother”“I know”Damen said it and felt a strange empathy pass between them as if they knew each other for the first time ”Now Laurent was beside him Aloof untouchable Laurent was beside him kneeling on the wet marble hundreds of miles from home with nothing in his eyes but Damen” Laurent was very still and the moment seemed to draw out the space between them private in the hushed baths ”And the centre We both hold the centre” said Laurent And then “It was one kingdom once”The conclusionI loved “King’s Rising” even than I loved “Prince’s Gambit” and this series definitely is one of my all time favourites now Since this was another buddy read my special thanks go to my adorable Gansey Girl thank you so much for reading this book with me I loved our conversations and that we just couldn’t seem to be able to stop gushing about Laurent and Damen 333 It was so much fun to experience this series with you and I’m so damn thankful I got to know you through goodreads Let’s buddy read even series together I’m so ready XD 3

    Like earlier books in this series 'Kings Rising' had my rapt attention from beginning to end This book was action packed and full of emotion It broke my heart only to piece it back together slowly I loved every minuteThis book sees both Damen and Laurent fighting to reclaim their kingdoms Despite their differences the two are forced into a tenuous alliance They need one another if either of them hopes to succeed This makes for plenty of emotional highs and lows along the way as the two attempt to navigate through their new realities In many ways the tables have turned At the same time so much remains unchangedFinally all of Damen's secrets are out in the open No longer does he live in fear of what will happen when Laurent finds out who he really is Instead he now lives with his wrath If he thought that Laurent would be angry he was rightTo say that I found this a little hypocritical is putting it mildly I kept thinking where does Laurent get off? After all Damen was his slave by force Of course he would keep a secret like that What did he expect him to do tell his captor his true identity and face certain death? That feeling only grew stronger as Laurent revealed some secrets of his own I mean where did he get off being so self righteous? It seemed to me that Damen was played yet again If anything Laurent proved once again to be one of the most manipulative characters that I've ever encounteredEven so I cannot deny that I absolutely loved this book Every interaction between Damen and Laurent was like a delicious little drop of heaven for me I spent the moments between their encounters holding my breath waiting for their next interaction It was pathetic really but I have no shameIn the end I was left feeling uite satisfied I wasn't sure that these two would ever get there but they eventually get some peace I'm not a big fan of MM romances generally but I absolutely loved this series It was heartfelt and sexy with plenty of action along the way The characters and storyline were well developed and engaging I would definitely recommend this series to othersCheck out of my reviews at wwwbookadddicthavencom

    Dear AuthorFirst of all I would like to compliment you on book 1 and 2 of this saga because they not only were written exceptionally well they also bespoke of an acute detailoriented forwardthinking mind Unfortunately these are also the reasons behind my poor rating while your writing ability remains intact the carefully planned strategies you had shown us in the past two books uite simply disappear and are replaced by sheer luck SPOILERS AHEADChapter two Laurent wakes up bound to a chair in the prison cells of Fontaine and the only thing we are told is that there was an ambush and that Laurent does not want to think about what happened to his men How is this possible Miss Pacat? We leave Laurent at the end of book two with 120 riders that have just demonstrated their worth at Hellay and are ready to fight to take Fortaine to suddenly find out without any explanation that said strong contingent has not only been ambushed and defeated how? by a stronger contingent? If so whose men where those? but that Laurent when he saw his men being attacked and understood he might loose did not even try to send a messenger to Damen to inform him But let us suspend our judgment for a minute and concentrate on Laurent bound to that chair with his right shoulder dislocated and with the hilt of a knife protruding from it ladies and gentlemen prepare yourselves for a miracle Laurent manages to pick up a heavy oak chair and swing it with enough force to stun and later kill Govert Now I am not a medical doctor but this whole scene seems a bit far fetched to me and appropriate to a Rambolike film Miss Pacat however has not finished Laurent is now free while Guion is confined inside the cell and the author presents the situation as if it were Laurent the one with the upper hand But let us reflect one minute we were told that the Prince of Vere was tied to a chair in the cells of Fortaine which means that he actually was inside Fortaine which means that even if he managed to escape his cell he still is inside the enemy’s fortress and I do not suppose that an enemy fortress is uite that easy to escape from Moreover Laurent’s threat to leave Guion inside the cell is supposedly enough to convince him to cooperate but there are two main problems with this scenario if the master of the keep suddenly disappears I do believe that his people would search for him and they would presumably search the whole keep and the cells are part of it so it would be uite impossible not to find him Secondly let us imagine we are Guion Laurent threatens us and we are scared enough to accept his conditions But as soon as Laurent let us out from that cell our best interest would be to renege our deal and to kill him he is alone in our keep where the men are loyal to us and his uncle would reward us for it while helping Laurent would only cause us problems so Guion’s sudden choice to help the Prince of Vere does not truly make sense Chapter three who are the prince’s men camped outside Fortaine? Are they what remains of Laurent’s forces after they were ambushed? Are they Fortaine keep’s men that became the prince’s men when Guion shifted his loyalties? Or are they part of the Regent’s army sent to help Guion ambush Laurent’s forces? And if so why has their commander suddenly decided to abandon the Regent? Just because Guion said so? Chapter four Laurent bargains with Damen This is where Laurent’s personality goes from rational and calculating to emotional the prince needs Damen’s help to win the war and he decides the best way to do that is to reveal to his would be ally how he used and manipulated him and then to threaten him The author would have us believe that a man like Laurent instead of using Damen’s feelings to further his own goals decides to unload his resentment and bitterness right when a united front would be most important Chapter seven the banner men of Delpha are called to pledge themselves to fight alongside Damen and one of them is worried that Vere could have undue influence over Akieos due to the fact that Laurent and Damen are lovers Laurent is able to assuage Barieus’ fears telling him that one would be icecold to sleep with one’s brother’s killer so basically denying the accusation A few chapters later however Laurent and Damen are discovered by an akielon soldier while in bed together and inexplicably nobody is surprised or angered by this especially the Veretians show no reaction to the fact that their leader is bedding the princekiller alias who is probably the most hated man in the whole country Nobody uestions Laurent’s decision or leadership nobody worries about Damen’s possible influence over him Chapter nine the games Miss Pacat I do understand the need to make the lead character stronger and better than everybody else but there is no need to make him superhuman Not only in chapter two Damen like a perfect killing machine seems almost able to win the fight all by himself but now he is even able to catch a flying spear with his bare hand and than not satisfied enough with that he is able to throw it ”over the full impossible length of the field to thunk into the target alongside Laurent’s spear” Bravo TerminatorLet us talk about Makedon now there are no shadows of gray with his character in fact at first he hates all things Veretian and then after Laurent’s skill at okton and at drinking he does a 180 turn and suddenly he behaves warmly towards the prince and speaks to him ”as he might with a favoured nephew a bit slow at learning” This seems a bit far fetched to me and not an appropriate reflection of reality exactly like a teetotaler suddenly able not only to drink a lot but to maintain control and best an usual drinker to a game Further during the discussion about tactics Laurent is completely silent What a change from the prince we met in the second book that stayed awake long hours at night to discuss precisely tactics with DamenChapter thirteen after their night together Damen and Laurent talk together and Laurent describes his plans and contingencies and this makes Damen uite happen because he sees it as a way for the prince to be open with him But at kingsmeet later on we discover that Laurent had decided from the beginning to give himself up to his uncle in exchange for the child so when Laurent spoke with Damen either he lied to him or omitted the truth In any case this shows a lack of trust between the two and results in a situation in which Laurent the supposed strategist is completely at the mercy of his uncle and it befalls Damen to think of a way to free himChapter seventeen to the end here lies my main problem with the book in fact what happens in these three chapters is pure unaltered sheer luck and not the forward thinking the complicated strategies Miss Pacat has enthralled us with in the previous books First problem Damien decides to come alone to Ios and to surrender himself to the regent This leads to his being brought in front of the Veretian council where Laurent is being tried Damen is lucky because nothing guaranteed this particular outcome which in fact clearly benefits only him and neither his halfbrother or the regent usually uite smart that could have for example kept him in a cell to deal with later at their own convenience In chapter eighteen we discover Damen great plan is to call Guion to the stand which results in utter disaster until we find out that Laurent’s plan had been all along to have Guion’s wife testify so now the author suggests that Laurent planned this whole situation presumably to save the day but only a few pages later we find out that Laurent brought Loyse simply to clear Damen’s name How in the world does this make sense? Laurent's great plan would be this in case Damen is as stupid as me and decides to simply give himself up like a sacrificial lamb I will make sure to bring a witness to testify his innocence except that this will not help him at all because the minute Damen gives himself up to the regent and to Kastor he is dead regardless of the council’s decision and I refuse to believe that a mind like Laurent did not understand this The only possible explanation is that Laurent has transformed into a besotted fool which is truly a shame because in this case means that love instead of making him stronger has simply reduced his intellectual faculties But now comes the best part Damen the loyal brute we all know and love has a moment of brilliance and makes a connection nobody not even Laurent our resident genius had been able to do before there is somebody in that group able to testify against the regent again sheer luck But this is not simply luck this is the ”Deus exmachina” one would expect from a playwrighter something spectacular and unexpected able to solve any problem and guarantee an total victory for our heroes without any planning needed There is only one problem with this kind of device you need to suspend belief you need not uestion how it happened because soon as you do that you realize it is completely unbelievable Does the author truly want us to believe that miraculously Damen made that connection and that the man with all the answers is right there ready to speak and with a very convenient letter that he brought with him just in case something like this were to happen? And why has this man not spoken before for example with Laurent? And if Damen had not called him out would he not have spoken on his own? And how many probabilities were there that this mysterious man of all the people it could be Jord for example is precisely the doctor the right man in the right place? Again I repeat sheer luckFinally one last inaccuracy Laurent has been bound with his hands behind his back for hours and hours but a few minutes after being freed he is able to fight with a sword and to defeat a seasoned fighter like KastorDear author I am truly sorry because you are a gifted writer and I cannot but ask myself how and why this whole débacle happened As I do not personally know you a shame because I would like to compliment you on the idea behind this saga and on the first two books that were absolutely exceptional and breathtaking the only thing I can say that changed between the first two books and the third is the publisher Penguin and I wonder if and how this might have had an impact on your work I wish you the best and hope you will continue your writing career because a talent like yours rarely present itself Please forgive me if my review was in any way offensive to you I assure you this was not the intention but unfortunately when one has to criticize something the line between constructive critiue and attack are not always that clearElena GiaconPS I beg your pardon for any grammatical mistakes as an Italian I do often have troubles with English grammar

    No rating For now Up until the 80% mark this was five stars all the way But that endingI feel like I should add here so I will If I were forced to rate this now based on the series as a whole this would be a solid four stars I guess what I'm saying is don't let this review concern you or keep you from reading these books This ending is perfectly satisfactory For most books But after the level of brilliance in the second one in this series it just can't compare It was too neat Too tidy Too bloodless And that's why I'm having trouble rating it
