Publisher's Summary

The stunning conclusion of a worldwide phenomenon - from the boldly original author of Captive Prince and Prince's Gambit.
His identity now revealed, Damen must face his master, Prince Laurent, as Damianos of Akielos, the man Laurent has sworn to kill. On the brink of a momentous battle, the future of both their countries hangs in the balance. In the south, Kastor's forces are massing. In the north, the Regent's armies are mobilizing for war. Damen's only hope of reclaiming his throne is to fight together with Laurent against their usurpers. Forced into an uneasy alliance, the two princes journey deep into Akielos, where they face their most dangerous opposition yet. But even if the fragile trust they have built survives the revelation of Damen's identity, can it stand against the Regents final, deadly play for the throne?

loved the series .....narrator wasnt top pic tho!

Where does Kings Rising rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's pretty low-scale on the erotica so depending if I'm listening for that intent or more for an involved storyline...though one of my favorite series from my Kindle library, while I didn't dislike the narrator it was not the voice I had imagined for either main character....I had been hoping for more like Gary Furlong from As You Wish.... honestly it was only my love of the series that had me listening despite the disconnect I found with the narrator. I had hoped it would be a voice I found attractive enough to have me backtracking and listening through the dense first and second novels.....

What other book might you compare Kings Rising to and why?

There's not too many in the m/m genre I think it can compare to really, the relationship between the two mc's reminds me of Honour by A.F. Henley, in that it is told from the pov of the "servant" who is more obv enamored of his prince then the prince's complex combo of personal and political allow, and causing him to be less able to easily warm to. I felt like the storyline was more comparable in complexity, not necessarily with regards to topic, to Harper Fox's Last Line series, especially with the idea that reading later on divulges certain knowledge or past connections that were surprising and required you to think back on the first book in reflection of this newly disclosed info and how it might expand your understanding of the complex relationships and storylines.

Any additional comments?

The third one dedicates the majority of their actual relationship coming to fruition and finally seeing some of the more intimate, personable side of Laurent, so I enjoyed that being explored. I do wish a diff narrator choice had been made ....just a matter of personal taste, the narrator didn't do a poor job... but I'd have been more anxious to go back and have the first two books on audio.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

One has to see how the story goes. The last part of the trilogy is good but not as well-knit as II - which is a masterpiece of plot weaving. This one left a lot of questions unanswered and I wish they added the Summer Palace (the epilogue) to the end of the narration.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Kings Rising?

Laurent and Damen under the stars.... Charles and Lamen :)

Have you listened to any of Stephen Bel Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Book I and II of the trilogy

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I hated the last 2 chapters - until it redeemed itself

Any additional comments?

The books must be done in order to make any sense.
