Prince's Gambit - C. S. Pacat review
I wasn't really excited after the first book in this series, because of the raping scenes and all. But my cousin kept saying I should continue reading because it gets better. She told me that the second and third book are really amazing and that they are worth reading. So I decided to give the second one a chance and I started it.
It was a fast read for me. I think I had it finished in two days or something. The second book is indeed way better than the first one. It is also overloaded with plot twists which keep the story really interesting and mysterious. You never know what's going to happen next.
The storyline in this book is a little more flatly and has a lot of politic aspects in it. This made it a little less intense for me and I wish there were less political details in the book. This sometimes made me lose my concentration and I started to get a little bit bored sometimes. But the story of the connection and bond between Damen and Laurent made up for everything.
I sometimes hated Laurent a little. He can be verry annoying and mean. Even cruel sometimes. This made him less lovable in my opinion. But I do loved how he could talk back to other people.
I really liked the book and I think it's so much better than the first one. I hope to read the third one soon.
