  • Worth every penny

    By atabex_writes
    I think my biggest pet peeve with this book specifically is that it’s classified under “romance”, and that’s not exactly what you get in this first installment of the Captive Prince trilogy. And since it’s labeled “romance” and has the term “pleasure slave” thrown in there too, readers might come with these high expectations of something they won’t necessarily find here. This isn’t an outright romance/erotica read right off the bat. I think people should mind the trigger warnings: there’s rape, there’s torture, there’s pedophilia. Then again, fanfictions have this stuff too and so does Game of Thrones, in a way that makes Captive Prince seem much more tame with the subjects in comparisons. With that aside, this series as a whole has an intricate, compelling story filled with political intrigue and amazingly crafted characters. I have caught myself cursing aloud, laughing, crying, and slamming my hand on the dinner table on more than one occasion. If I were to recommend one thing is to read the books one after the other. They’re not long, and what Captive Prince does is craft the framework of the story for the second and third books. It is a romance, just not in this book. I actually asked myself a couple of times how exactly was Pacal going to pull if off after reading the first book. Well, she does, in the most beautiful way. I wholly recommend this book, and the other two as well. Give it a try. If you loved the intricacies of the political battlefield of series like Game of Thrones, you’ll love this one too.
  • Not the romance i was expecting.

    By apple-pie-admirer
    Started strong, ended strong, the middle had way too much sadism and rape. The whole slave thing lasted too long for my tastes, it simply made me sad and disgusted for no apparent reason. I was also expecting a romance, which definitely does not occur in this book (although we see the seeds of one). However, the writing was good and I really enjoyed the political aspects! The middle almost made me put down the book, but the end makes me consider book 2. All in all, I still finished it within 24-36 hours. It certainly is different, I would give it a try if you don’t mind the submissive slave themes.
  • Loved

    I enjoyed it, wish the book didn’t end so soon but good thing there’s two more left!
  • Captive Prince

    Extraordinary story. This would make an epic and masterful movie. It seems, in a sense, that it is similar to Lord of the Rings in that in my mind’s eye, as I read, it is a visually stunning tale. It kept me enthralled in a way a book has not done in quite a while. The point where it leaves off to the next book is perfect.
  • Don’t bother🙌🏼

    By Ellierwill
    Was hoping for a romance and all there included was abuse, rape, sadism, torture, and beats. Not my idea of a romance. Didn’t get it and didn’t enjoy it either.
  • Amazing!

    By faith-e
    Honestly this is such a good book!! The characters are deep and sophisticated, the twisting political intrigue is incredibly captivating and every detail revealed about the world is absolutely fascinating. I all three books in a weekend and am planning on rereading them soon!

  • Great series

    By Yvette Br.
    Loved this book! Great characters, intense politics, and amazing world building! I'm glad i stumbled onto this book.
  • Can I give this more than five stars????

    By @brune
    Yeah. It’s that good. A friend I know recommended this book to me, so I bought it. Going to be honest, I didn’t read it for a solid year or more. I finally decided to sit down and give the first chapter a try. Needless to say, I finished it in less than two days. Totally worth reading. I just bought the second book and am currently eating that one up, too!
