Captive Prince: Volume One (Captive Prince, #1) - S.U. Pacat,  C.S. Pacat Ahh, I was an idiot to wait so long to read this! There are already tons of better reviews out there, so I'm just going to keep this short and simple.
I will say this though, this is some of the best writing and world-building I've come across. The political intrigue and fascinating characters rivals another long time favorite fantasy series of mine, Kushiel's Dart.
Laurent, personification of the anti-hero: I was seriously hating him for the first three chapters and now he's one of my absolute fave characters ever.Hurrah for supposedly frigid, sly, manipulative bastards.
Thank you Monique for suggesting this to me! ^-^
Off to book 2!
