Pet (Captive Prince Short Stories, #4) by C.S. Pacat
Pet: A Captive Prince Short Story (Capti... Pet: A Captive Prince Short Story (Captive Prince Short Stories Book 4) - C.S. Pacat

I am sad to see the ending to this amazing series. I had so much fun reading through each and every single novel, every single short story, and every single adventure these characters went on. So it is with a heavy heart I say goodbye to one of my favorite series to exist in this world. Well, that is, until I decide to have myself a re-read. And I definitely will have myself a re-read... maybe later on this year. X3

 

C.S. Pacat did an amazing job writing this series. PET is no exception. In this short story, she expands Ancel's story that took place during the first book. In Captive Prince, Ancel comes across as someone who is very shallow and wants all eyes on him. However, this short story explains why he is the way he is and grants the reader a deeper understanding to not only Ancel as a character, but the environment he was brought up in and what he had to do in order to survive. It's a brilliant insight to Ancel and his relationship to a lord named Berenger. We see them grow together and learn a person is more complex than they may portray on the outside. 

 

This story had me all over the place. I went into it expecting one thing and I got a whole slew of things instead. Not that that's a bad thing. Ancel and Berenger are just such beautiful souls that when they were hurting, I was hurting. Pacat did an amazing job conveying their emotions in an authentic light. My heart couldn't take it! But I am so glad I put myself through such emotional turmoil. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to become acquainted with these fantastic characters! 

 

You already know that I highly recommend this series. If you've read everything else published in this series, then you should definitely read this final short story as well. However, it bears repeating now that we are at the end of this series that the entirety of Captive Prince contains highly mature content. It contains violence, rape, swears, and graphic imagery. Please only read this series if you are okay with reading about topics mentioned above. If you are, then I hope you enjoy because I think it's an amazing series filled with political intrigue, great characters, and multiple well-done romances!

 

I love this series and will continue to support C.S. Pacat as she works on her new projects. I'm already in love with her new comic series Fence and cannot wait to read more of her works in the future!

The Prince's Captive Virgin
The Prince's Captive Virgin - Maisey Yat... The Prince's Captive Virgin - Maisey Yates I reviewed this book from my own personal copy with no prompt from the publisher or author.

Maisey is an auto-buy for me, and I dig all her books, but I absolutely ADORED her take on the Beauty & the Beast fairytale. Not a new premise by any means, I get that, however - she managed to make the story her own.

Belle seems wimpy and a little churlish at the start. She's taking the fall for her father, who has transgressed against The Prince of Olympios. She puts on a mask of bravado in order to face down Prince Adam - who decides Belle might be of use to him, where her father is not. Besides, the older Chamberlain is ill, and sending him home is the right thing to do.

It just so happens that Adam needs to come out of hiding, and having someone pretty on his arm will be a huge asset. Belle fits that bill perfectly. So she becomes his captive in a gilded cage.

She soon decides she'll shed the old Belle - since she's cut off from her old life anyhow - and she'll make the best of her situation. Prince Adam also becomes changed by Belle, learning that while he thinks he's a beast on the outside, he's let himself turn into a beast on the inside as well.

In this iteration of the tale, both of our lead characters have pasts that haunt them, and meeting each other was the magic spell that helped them overcome their demons. Of course, the relationship is not without stumbles along the way, and even heartbreak on both sides, but there's a HEA - as every good fairytale should do.

Again, I loved it, and it was delightful and charming - and quintessentially Maisey Yates.

P.S. Where are the unicorns?
