Book Two of the Captive Prince trilogy
Prince’s Gambit – Australian Edition
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.
With their countries on the brink of war, Damen and his master Prince Laurent exchange the intrigues of the palace for the sweeping might of the battlefield as they travel to the border to avert a lethal plot.
Leading a band of loyal men against desperate odds, Damen must fight together with Laurent to overcome machinations, ambushes and betrayals. With the future of both their nations at stake, a single misstep could be fatal.
Despite himself, Damen is increasingly drawn to the dangerous, charismatic Laurent. But even as the fledgling trust between the two men deepens, their enemies are poised to deal them a final devastating blow . . .
“Instantly addictive and utterly engrossing . . . Pacat’s series opener was sumptuous, genre-defying and wholly entrancing book, yet somehow this phenomenal second entry manages to surpass it. Pacat’s talent for achingly beautiful subtlety makes the slightest movement, or the shortest conversation, seem profoundly moving.”
