this little book has taken me six months to get through. every so often, a passage or phrase would hit me a little too closely to home, and i would need to put it down. i don't even have the words to explain why this book has affected me so deeply, but i know it's one i'll be returning to again and again over the course of my life. thank you, namjoon, for the recommendation.

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. Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master, Prince Laurent, epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent.

After reading the reviews of this audiobook, I was nervous about the quality of the narration, but found myself pleasantly surprised. It took me a couple of chapters to get accustomed to the inflection and tone the narrator provided for each separate character, but by chapter four or five, he was able to hold my complete, captivated attention despite having read the book in print multiple times.

Overall, despite the narrator's tendency to speak a little too quietly sometimes, I've enjoyed the first installment so much that I'll probably splurge for book two before receiving my monthly credit. Treat. Yo. Self.
