Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos. But when his half-brother seizes power, Damien is captured, stripped of his identity and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave. 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. Bound to thrill long term online fans of the Captive Prince trilogy, this volume contains the original story in full alongside exclusive bonus short stories.
His identity now revealed, Damen must face his master Prince Laurent as Damianos of Akielos, the man Laurent has sworn to kill. But with the future of both their countries hanging in the balance, Damen's only hope of reclaiming his throne is to fight together with Laurent against their usurpers. As the two princes journey deep into Akielos, where they face their most dangerous opposition yet, the fragile trust they have built must survive not only the revelation of Damen's identity but also the Regent's final, deadly play for the throne.
In order to stop a lethal plot and avoid war, Damen and Prince Laurent travel to the battlefield, but as the truth of their pasts comes to light, their trust in each other is tested and their lives are put at risk.
Tryouts are well underway at King’s Row for a spot on the prodigious fencing team, and scrappy fencer Nicholas isn’t sure he’s going to make the grade in the face of surly upperclassmen, nearly impossibly odds, and his seemingly unstoppable roommate, the surly, sullen Seiji Katayama. It’ll take more than sheer determination to overcome a challenge this big! From the superstar team of C.S. Pacat (The Captive Prince) and fan-favorite artist Johanna the Mad comes the second volume of this acclaimed, dynamic series.
Tryouts are coming to a close, and the three available spots on the Kings Row fencing team are almost all locked up. It’s just a question of whether or not Nicholas can push through and earn a spot for himself—or if he’ll have to leave Kings Row altogether.
